In videos that hit online last week, music producer Dallas Austin alleged that Joss Stone and Christina Aguilera have sex with producers in exchange for music. Turns out Joss and Christina didn’t think that was a compliment. In a coincidentally well-prepared statement to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Austin said:
Every action generates an equal and opposite reaction. My statement about Christina Aguilera and Joss Stone was a reaction to an incident I care not to discuss in any forum, and while I may have felt justified, I do owe an apology to Christina, Joss and their families. The comments I made about Christina Aguilera and Joss Stone were purely an act of retaliation not of malice or cruel intent. As we all have our boiling points, I sincerely apologize as this is not my character nor should I have let anyone’s actions push me to this limit. I have let my family, friends, employees and business associates down with my actions. All content and any malicious statements that were in my control have been removed from outlets that may have posted this. Please accept this as my formal statement and apology to all parties involved.”
Wow, that didn’t take Christina’s lawyer long. I wonder if they tied Dallas Austin’s hands behind his back before they bent him over? I hope they used rope or something, because handcuffs just seem so impersonal.
