Former Voice contestant turned pop star Melanie Martinez has responded to rape accusations from fellow popstar and friend, Timothy Heller, in her statement below.
"I am horrified and saddened by the statements and story told tonight by Timothy Heller.
What she and I shared was a close friendship for a period of time. We came into each other's lives as we were both starting our careers as artists, and we tried to help each other. We both had pain in dealing with our individual demons and the new paths we were forging, but I truly felt we were trying to lift each other up. She never said no to what we chose to do together. And although we parted ways, I am sending her love and light always."
