The Voice's Melanie Martinez Releases Another Statement After Being Accused of Rape

Former The Voice contestant Melanie Martinez is continuing to defend herself after her former friend, Timothy Heller, accused her of rape.

Timothy alleged that Melanie raped her after she repeatedly said “no.”

“I understand how hard it could be to see my side of the story, considering no one with a heart would want to invalidate anyone speaking up about this topic,” Melanie wrote in her second statement, posted on Saturday night (December 9). “I want to thank my fans who took the time to research the timeline, analyze past Instagram photos, and question the story being told, which reveal her false statements. I trusted so many people in my life who took advantage of that trust for their own personal gain. Please know that my intentions with everything that I do in my life are always pure and I would never be intimate with someone without their absolute consent.”

Timothy responded on her Twitter, “This is why victims don’t speak up. I wouldn’t wish this upon anyone.”

    Just like with Amber Heard hitting her girlfriend, people will forget about this and Melanie will continue to have a good career. Because women can’t be rapists, sexual predators, commit assault, etc… Melanie and Amber should be thankful for the double standards and nowadays “feminists”.

    I’m surprised that so many people believed that girl, who literally jumped outta nowhere attacking Melanie and tried to ruin her career plus her life JUST to gain some fame. I do have a heart, and I believe rape is very serious, but there are so many things and facts that speak against her, plus the fact that she didn’t even go to the police, instead she just wrote that on twitter. Twitter. Please.
    To conclude, I believe she just played the “women can rape too” card (which is true, women can be rapists as well), hoping that it’d work, and it actually did as most of Melanie’s fans are 11ish yo girls and boys who just saw the “help I’ve been raped attitude” and rushed to her aid. This woman has even been diagnosted with some serious mental illness, what’s to believe in here anymore? I really hope people start opening their eyes, and remember who Melanie Martinez truly is

    I love you Melanie. That girl is a liar

    I disagree. Woman can be rapist. When I was 8 I was rape by a Woman, but this time is a fucking lie.

    I was being sarcastic, of course I believe women can be rapists, sexual predators and commit assault, but they are rarely held accountable for their actions like men are. Whether the accusations are real or fake there isn’t the same reaction from the public as when men are accused.

  • Bea Long

    That’s right! It makes me sick. Women know that no matter what if they accuse a man whether it be true or false said man is immediately and forever branded, most of the time punished even imprisoned and much to often it’s “a complete fabricated lie” either because they are pissed, trying to get sole custody of a child and in some cases just to make another man jealous. Guess what happens to the liar? NOTHING….even when proven to be a falsehood… NOTHING…now guess what happened to the man? His reputation, career and many other things have been damaged beyond compare and there’s nothing he can do to salvage it. The charge will forever stay on his record in some states as there is no expungement of records so it stands and there is NO ONE who will come out like the massive institution s such as the ACLU to lift a finger when it’s a man who has been accused. Let that sink in, because battered, abused and wrongfully accused men don’t have the support that a woman has. They will not report actual incidents like woman will. Think about that…they are ridiculed, belittled and chastised so yes #JustSaying they should really be thankful for those double standards and their feminist friends who paved the way for the lack of accountability and responsibility for their actions.

    I couldn’t have said it with the same eloquence you did, Bea Long, and I couldn’t agree more with you.
