In the morning, Monday, Kevin Parent has responded to the allegations by posting a video on his page Facebook.
“I sense that there is a groundswell of cries for justice, and then I can not do otherwise than support this movement. I have made many mistakes in my life and then I said well the small things, I have done many small things. I assume”, he says.
“There’s a big tidal wave of consciousness or cries for justice (…) It goes beyond me and my opinion and taste to defend myself or something like that. This is not what I want to do. I have the taste to listen to, understand, and be there.”
“Then for my delinquency, my misconduct, and what you want to name one after the other, it is sure that the context it has to come out… there is no context, it’s a little “free for all” as they say, but I assume and I know that it’s going to be a bit “ben ” rough” for me the next time, but I hope it will serve to something.”
The singer said, apologizing sincerely, and that he will “pay (her) debts in time and place, when we will (him) to say how”.
