"I know I have said and done things that could have offended people during my career, but I have never knowingly persecuted underage women," said D'Elia in a statement received from Deadline. “All of my relationships were both legal and consensual, and I have never taken or shared inappropriate photos with the people who have tweeted about me. That being said, I'm really sorry. I was a stupid guy who got ABSOLUTELY involved in my lifestyle. Its my fault. I have it. I've been thinking about it for some time and I promise I will continue to do better. "
