Matt Riddle has released a statement through his attorney regarding recent allegations made against him. A user on Twitter alleges that Riddle engaged in sexual misconduct with her in 2018.
According to statements from Riddle’s lawyer, these accusations are attempts to harass and humiliate him.
“The allegations by this independent female performer are completely false and another attempt to harass and humiliate Mr. and Mrs. Riddle and try to tarnish their reputation in the community,” the statement reads.
“We have been aware for the last two years of this performer stalking the Riddle family.”
“In 2019, our firm had drafted a pleading against this performer to seek an injunction for cyberstalking in the Circuit Court for Orange County, Florida.”
