In June 2020, a Twitter user going by the handle @Itsgabby accused him of sexually assaulting her in 2014 when he was allegedly 20 and she was only 17.

Ansel has steadfastly denied the allegations.

‘I was distressed to see the social media posts about me that have been circulating in the past 24 hours,’ he wrote on Twitter, adding, ‘I cannot claim to understand Gabby’s feelings but her description of events is simply not what happened. I have never and would never assault anyone.’

The previous day, Gabby detailed an alleged situation that occurred after their initial online meeting. In her post, she described the alleged sexual encounter, writing, ‘It was my first time and I was sobbing in pain and I didn’t want to do it the only words that came out of his mouth were “we need to break you in.”‘

The account where the story was posted was deleted shortly afterwards.
