Kids Company founder Camila Batmanghelidjh has said she is "devastated" for the children that will be affected by the closure of the charity.
She told reporters allegations of abuse were unfounded, saying, "listen, I promise you, they're invalid. They are completely invalid."
When asked how she felt about the charity's demise, she said: "It doesn't matter how I feel. It's the devastation that this circus has caused the children. That's what people should be worried about."
Asked if she accepted any responsibility, she conceded: "I accept that I didn't raise enough money".
Ms Batmanghelidjh also insisted the story behind the collapse of Kids Company "would come out".
"It's much more complicated than people think and that will come out. I will produce the evidence for it", she added.
The founder of Kids Company has denied that the charity failed to handle allegations of sexual abuse.
Jodie Alexis, one of the thousands of people who the charity supports, explains why she is so affected by its closure.
Kids Company has issued a statement saying its closure was a "very sad end" to founder Camila Batmanghelidjh's "pioneering vision".
