Ozuna Says He Was Extorted With a Video of Himself as a Minor

Ozuna is speaking out after media reports of him being the victim of extortion.

The 26-year-old singer, who was the most successful Latin artist of 2018, was the victim of a scam through an intimate video of him filmed when he was a minor. His record label says that the video was edited to try and create more harm.

“What happened was a mistake of the past. Like many young people, I made a mistake, fueled by ignorance,” Ozuna said in his apology statement (via Billboard). “Today, I’m not only sorry for what happened, but I condemn it. That’s why I looked for help and I am certain everything will be cleared. Likewise, I’m following the process and am always willing to collaborate with authorities to prevent the evil that resulted from this big mistake. More importantly, I ask my family for forgiveness. They are my life’s priority and I will continue to fight for them always.”

Here is what Ozuna‘s team said in a statement.

“At the time, we filed a complaint,” the statement read. “Our attorney confirmed yesterday that urban artist Ozuna was extorted through an intimate video filmed when he was a minor. This video was edited with the objective of causing even more harm. At the time [of the extortion plot], we filed a complaint and all the legal measures are being taken, as sending and publishing videos of minors is a state and federal offense.”

    JustJared you need to be careful on addressing him as s victim.

    He was being extorted because he was in a video having sex with another man while the guy was a minor (Kevin Fret).

    Fret is now DEAD, he was murdered and everything leads to this guy, who is now apparently saying that he regrets being involved in homosexual acts and being gay is condemnable.
