Former WWE star James Ellsworth has released a statement saying he denies allegations made on social media by an underage girl claiming he sent her nude photos.
“I category deny all allegations, please direct all further communication to my attorney,” Ellsworth’s statement to WrestlingNews.Co reads.
He later tweeted a statement from his lawyer which says, “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.”
The 16-year-old girl in question shared screenshots on Friday of a few pictures James allegedly sent and detailed her allegations in a video.
She claims to have met Ellsworth earlier this month at an indie show where she told the wrestler her age. She then allegedly asked Ellsworth for a follow on Twitter and he obliged. The girl claims he asked for her Snapchat account not long after and allegedly began sending her XXX content.
Ellsworth last worked for Impact and WWE in October.
It’s unclear if authorities have been alerted of the situation.
