AceShowbiz - Diplo has sent the Internet into a frenzy with his latest social media post. On Friday, October 15, the Major Lazer star surprised his online devotees after he let out a bizarre nude video.
The 42-year-old posted the clip on his Instagram page. In the footage, the DJ was seen holding the spore-bearing plants while wearing nothing but a leaf over his crotch and a pair of colorful Crocs.
Diplo used Edvard Grieg's classical composition "Morning Mood" from "Peer Gynt Suite No. 1" in the background of the video. In the caption of the post, he wrote, "My impression of the first human to ever try mushrooms #nationalmushroomday #mycology."
The post has since been flooded with comments from many. One in particular was his dancer pal Casey Frey who wrote in the comment section, "Ur on timeout dip."
Meanwhile, some of Diplo's fans sent out thirsty comments. One user jokingly urged, "Remove the leafff." Another echoed, "move the leaf dip." A third then quipped, "Still waiting for the wind to come up."
This arrived more than a week after Diplo addressed sexual misconduct allegations brought by Shelly Auguste. "It was my goal to never address a stalker... She was an obsessed fan of mine, and after I relinquished all contact with her, it appears that her only purpose in life has been to disrupt my work, my business, harass me and my close friends and attack me and threaten my family," he wrote on Instagram.
"I also learned at this time that a judge in Florida already issued a permanent restraining order to protect a family in Florida and the court had said she exhibited dangerous behavior," the EDM star added. "So this wasn't her first attempt to harass or stalk, I'm just as much bigger target."
"This is so frustrating and embarrassing," the musician concluded. "I am not this person and I won't be extorted by anyone no matter how stinging the press can be. Even over the past two years I've never been bothered by these rumours, if anything it has made me stronger and smarter, all of my friends and partners have never questioned me and that was what has been important to me."
Shelly filed a lawsuit against Diplo in 2020. She alleged that he groomed her for sex when she was a teenager, distributed revenge porn following their split and intentionally gave her a sexually transmitted disease.
