Rolling Stone obtained police reports where bassist David Ellefson has admitted he had been “sexting” with a Dutch teenager, who had captured video footage of their encounters without his consent.
The reports say:
“They struck up a friendship and continued chatting through social media. The second time they met in person was in the Netherlands at a hotel lobby to have coffee and a soda.
“He believes this was February 2020. He stated there was no physical contact and they just had a conversation. He stated there has never been any sexual physical contact between the two.”
The female shared the videos with friends and someone ultimately leaked them online, along with accusations that David had been grooming an underage fan.
