I would like to make it quite clear that following the serious allegations that have been brought against me on Thursday 14th February 2013, I am innocent of these charges and intend to fight them vigorously.
I will now put all my efforts into clearing my name and proving my innocence.
I thank my friends, family and fans for their continued support.
I would ask now for time to concentrate on preparing my defence with my legal team.
