Ozuna claims he is being extorted of an old “intimate” video recorded when he was a minor.
Management for “Taki Taki” singer released the following statement to Billboard:
Our attorney confirmed yesterday that urban artist Ozuna was extorted through an intimate video filmed when he was a minor.
This video was edited with the objective of causing even more harm. At the time [of the extortion plot], we filed a complaint and all the legal measures are being taken, as sending and publishing videos of minors is a state and federal offense.
Ozuna, real name Juan Carlos Ozuna Rosado also spoke out an apologized for the video:
What happened was a mistake of the past. Like many young people, I made a mistake, fueled by ignorance.
Today, I’m not only sorry for what happened, but I condemn it. That’s why I looked for help and I am certain everything will be cleared. Likewise, I’m following the process and am always willing to collaborate with authorities to prevent the evil that resulted from this big mistake.
More importantly, I ask my family for forgiveness. They are my life’s priority and I will continue to fight for them always.
The scoop on the streets of Puerto Rico is openly gay trap artist Kevin Fret was the person [allegedly] extorting Ozuna.
Fret was murdered in San Juan on January 10.
Ozuna’s lawyer, Antonio Sagardia, said his client had nothing to do with Kevin Fret’s death.
Ozuna has nothing to do with [Fret’s] death.
The only way Ozuna is affected is that [Fret] was extorting him and police have the information.
