His detailed statement can be viewed here.
“Sex is very special and very important to me,” Paradise said. “Normally, everyone respects me when I don’t want to do sexual things, so I thought it was okay if I walked into their room. I thought it would be okay to kiss him, because I thought he would stop if I didn’t want to do anything else. He didn’t ask for consent or anything. That is not right. At no level is that right. “
Paul called the allegations “100 percent false.”
“Allegations of sexual assault are not something I or anyone should take lightly, but to be clear, this claim made against me is 100 percent false,” wrote Paul. “Not only have I never had a sexual relationship with this individual, but this claim is solely a fabricated accusation and a blatant attempt to gain attention during a highly visible fight week. Make no mistake, I plan to continue this character defamation case to the full extent of the law. There is irreparable damage from these types of accusations and, more importantly, false accusations of this nature diminish those who have actually been victims of misconduct ”.
