I want to address the serious claims that have been made against me by a former girlfriend. Griselda and I were in a consensual relationship for about four years. Unfortunately, our relationship was unhealthy for the both of us, and we went our separate ways. While our relationship was unhealthy, I was never physically abusive. I have never in my life laid my hand on a woman in violence. I was far from the perfect boyfriend and I regret and apologize for the harsh words said during emotionally-charged arguments.
The accusations that have been made about me and my conduct are totally and completely FALSE. It has been suggested that there are glaring examples of these claims in emails between us. Although I consider the emails about my past relationship to be deeply personal and somewhat embarrassing to share, I want to act in the spirit of transparency. As such, I am willing to share these emails in person. I am not proud of some of the things that I said in these emails, but sharing these emails is the best way to demonstrate that our past relationship has been completely mischaracterized and that the claims are simply not true.
When we parted ways, I had hoped that she would find happiness, as I have found with my wife. To hear these accusations was surprising to me. I am thankful for my wife, Wendy, whom I have known since elementary school and have been married to for over two years. Relationships are challenging and she has taught me what it means to be in a loving, supportive, and healthy one. It is still my hope that Griselda finds a healthy and loving relationship.
