Brockhampton's Ameer Vann responds to misconduct accusations
Several women accused BROCKHAMPTON rapper Ameer Van of sexual misconduct and emotional abuse via social media over the weekend.
“Ameer Vann – not only is he a predator and cheater.. he also degrades women, makes foreceful advances and does not ease up when asked, is emotionally abusive, uses girl, v manipulative, has sex with underage/legal fans,” one woman wrote on Twitter.
“I’ve been in relationships where I’ve f—ed up and disrespected my partners. I’ve cheated and been dismissive to my exes,” Vann tweeted.
“In response to the claims of emotional sexual abuse: although my behavior has been selfish, childish, and unkind, I have never criminally harmed anyone or disrespected their boundaries. I have never had relations with a minor or violated anybody’s consent.”

The rapper apologized for “cheating” and “lying,” and wrote that he hoped he could “be an example of somebody who learned to grow from his mistakes and become a better person.”
Vann is an original member of the California-based rap collective and self-described “boy band” founded by Kevin Abstract in 2015.
BROCKHAMPTON, who recently signed a deal with RCA records, is set to release their fourth album, “Puppy,” in June.
The group will play Governors Ball at Randall’s Island on June 2.
Representatives for BROCKHAMPTON have not replied to the Daily News’ request for comment.
