Former WWE Superstar James Ellsworth is denying that he recently sent nude images of himself to an underage fan.
Earlier this week, the 16-year-old female accuser went public on social media and began releasing screenshots of what Ellsworth allegedly sent her.
In a statement issued by his lawyer, Ellsworth vehemently denies the claims.
“My client, James Morris, known publicly and professionally as James Ellsworth has become aware of a number of baseless allegations. Mr. Morris has the utmost respect for women and categorically denies these inflammatory and despicable accusations.”
Ellsworth reportedly arrived at his scheduled booking for Big Time Pro Wrestling on Friday evening, but in the wake of the allegations, was asked to leave the event. He has also been fired from a YouTube show where he served as a host in light of the alleged events.
Ellsworth has also been removed from a planned Survivor Series event at Jimmy’s Seafood.
