As of today Alex will no longer be associated with PVRIS. He will be handling these matters privately and professionally.”

In his own personal statement, Alex says: “These allegations being made against me are 100 per cent false. I understand that until there is provided clear evidence, I have no way to prove these allegations otherwise. I am determined to prove my innocence and am in the process of taking legal action in order to professionally and efficiently clear my name.

I respect and honour all victims of sexual misconduct and it’s important for them to come forward and be heard. I respect and understand Lynn and Brian’s decision to part ways with me at this time.”
