Diplo Responds To Sexual Misconduct Claims; Explains His Side of What Happened In Lengthy Instagram

Diplo is responding to a report that he may face criminal charges over claims he raped a woman and knowingly gave her a sexually transmitted infection.

The 42-year-old DJ had been accused by a woman of recording sexually explicit videos of her without her permission, distributing at least one without her consent and knowingly infecting her with chlamydia, according to the report from Buzzfeed News.

Now, Diplo is facing criminal charges for the allegations.

“We are reviewing the referral and have no further comment at this time,” a spokesperson for the LA city attorney, Rob Wilcox, shared with Page Six.

The woman is also claiming that Diplo had raped her in his Las Vegas hotel room after one of his concerts, but no criminal charges have been filed over the alleged incident.

Diplo’s lawyer denied the claims.

“Yet more lies from the same disturbed individual who has been stalking and menacing Wes, his family and his friends for years,” Bryan Freedman said. “As is well known, this person tried to extort Wes for millions of dollars and, after he refused to pay her a penny, launched an unceasing campaign of harassment against my client. She has been peddling her lies around the country in a desperate attempt to harm Wes and those he loves, but she will not succeed.”

Diplo even made his own statement about the allegations on his Instagram.

Here’s what Diplo’s Instagram says:

“I will keep this story easy to read because I know the internet has a short attention span, and it was my goal to never address a stalker. I will refer to her as ‘SA’ (and you can find anything easily online) 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. to be clear, SA was not a minor when I had conversations or sexual intercourse with her. Her own text messages admit this.”

He continued, “I had a night of consensual sex with her. Basically, SA reached out to me and I declined a few times but at one time decided to meet her. After that experience, we had exchanged texts for a few months, there was small talk, sexual flirting, she would send me pics and videos..eventually it got too much to handle and, I stopped contact with her when I realized she had started to become obsessed with me, it began a nightmare of almost three years of her harassing and threatening me my family and my friends.”

“SA would offer her friends and other people to have sexual experiences with, and that’s when I began to get suspicious that she was engaging in criminal activity, and was possibly a call girl. Here are some of the texts over the course of months ..”

Diplo adds that SA started to “call and text me day and night on different numbers and whatsapp. She began to come to my house when I wasn’t there. one time I just hid in my neighbor’s house and ignored her. I don’t think she could physically harm me but I was afraid she was going to harm herself. We always took the high road when dealing with her. We tried to deal with her in court and help her find help. Our detective had found out she had a previous restraining ordered against her in Florida (more on this later) after we rounded up many of her fake accounts.”

“She denied having any fake accounts and said her friends were out to get her and pretending to be her…?? nothing was making sense and I really was getting worried she could be this delusional.”

“When I was expecting my third son, it really threw her over the edge, she became obsessed with my son’s mother just as much as she was with me, calling and berating her and sending extremely racist comments to her and sharing my text messages from years ago. The mother of my first two children had already deactivated her Instagram account because she couldn’t take all the hate mail coming from what we believe to be SA’s fake
accounts (and again this is her blaming people for making these fake accounts to attack my family members).”

“Culture is quick to follow unsubstantiated claims. I’m a public figure and this comes with the territory and I understand that. I want to add also these previous claims have been dropped or abandoned and those facts go unreported. This is so frustrating and embarrassing. 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 2 years I’ve never been bothered by these rumors 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. The people in my life know me for who I really am. I will continue to do everything I can to end this in the most respectful way but I will not give in to lies and harassment.”

This isn’t the first legal troubles Diplo has run into this year.
