Megadeth Distances Themselves From David Ellefson In New Statement

Megadeth has issued a statement on after David Ellefson was accused for pedophilia, grooming and having sexual and romantic interaction with minors.

Over the weekend, sexually tinged messages and explicit video footage involving the 56-year-old musician were leaked on Twitter. Earlier today, Ellefson released a statement on Instagram denying all social media chatter that he “groomed” an underage fan.

Megadeth has now posted on their social media channels, pretty much distancing from the bassist: “We are aware of the recent statements regarding David Ellefson, and are watching developments closely.

“As it relates to creativity and business, we are all familiar with one another. However, there are clearly aspects of David‘s private life that he has kept to himself.

“As this situation unfolds, it is important that all voices be heard clearly and respectfully. We look forward to the truth coming to light.”
