How did Sinatra Respond?

It is clear from Cleo’s recent post that she recalls our relationship differently than I do. What we do agree on is that it was unhealthy for both of us. I apologize to Cleo and regret how things ended, but I never assaulted her in any way. I am fully cooperating with the investigations and providing the full audio and video clips Cleo referenced in her post.

Sinatra has said he will assist in the investigations and has also provided the full audio and video clips. He maintains that he never assaulted his ex-girlfriend in any way.
