AceShowbiz - TikTok personality Sienna Mae Gomez has addressed the sexual assault allegations that are leveled at her. On Tuesday, June 1, the 17-year-old social media star's rep issued a statement in which Sienna denied that she had sexually assaulted her friend and "Hype House" co-star Jack Wright.
"Sienna unequivocally denies the charges made by Mason [Rizzo] and amplified by James [Wright], which have since been taken down," the statement read. "She has never sexually assaulted anyone nor have she or Jack ever had sexual relations together. Period."
Sienna's rep went on to share, "Jack is part of her extended family and clearly there are issues causing him pain right now in his personal life. She hopes Jack gets the peace of mind he needs to move forward beyond these challenging times, but she is in no way responsible for these issues and is comfortable in the fact that she has been nothing but a good and loyal friend to Jack since they were young."
Sienna then doubled down on her statement in an Instagram video where she insisted that she and Jack "never had sex." In the video, she explained, "It feels so uncomfortable to have to disclose this part of my life to the internet, especially because I'm a 17-year-old girl."
"For so long I was strung along and mislead by Jack. It's honestly really embarrassing for me because I gave my entire heart and all of my love for nine months so vulnerably on the internet and everyone can go and look at these videos and see how invested I was in our relationship," she added.
Sienna also said that Jack only needed her for a "TikTok kiss" video, adding, "I wasn't important to him." Now that they called it quits, she shared that her love and passion for him was "newly regarded as possessive or desperate. That is so frustrating to me and after everything that I did for him, after all the love that I gave him, I feel so stupid. That's the only way I can explain it." Sienna also shared that she asked Jack to make a video with her to tell fans that they were no longer dating, though she claimed that Jack refused to do so.
Later in the video, Sienna addressed Mason Rizzo, who first made the sexual assault allegations against her. "None of this is true," Sienna insisted. She also shared that she was "surprised" to see Jack's twin brother James Wright backing Mason's statement by saying, "This is why I 'couldn't just let it go and stay out of it.' "
In response to Sienna's denial, Jack took to his Instagram account to share his own statement. "While I love sharing my life with all of you, some parts are deeply personal and I have been hesitant to share for my on emotional and mental wellbeing. But I will say this. Sexual assault is a serious matter that has real consequences that has real consequences," he opened his statement on Tuesday.
"But I will say this. Sexual assault is a serious matter that has real consequences that has real consequences. Mason and James' only intention was to protect me with the truth, and I really value their enormous support through this extremely difficult time," he continued. "I truly encourage my childhood friend Sienna to get the support and help that she needs. I don't want to tear anyone down and only with healing for everyone involved."
