Ansel Elgort denies sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl after a Twitter user said the 'Baby Driver' actor took advantage of her when she was young and impressionable.

In an emotional message on Twitter.com on Friday, a woman named "Gabby" said she was "sobbing in pain" during the alleged assault when she was a teenager.

She said she began communicating with Elgort on Snapchat in 2014 when she was 16. The actor soon made arrangements to meet the starstruck teenager offline.

But the teenager's dream of meeting her celebrity crush turned into a nightmare when he allegedly sexually assaulted her.

"He made me think this is how sex was supposed to be," the woman said in her post. She said she told him she was a virgin, and that she was in pain, but he was unsympathetic.

"Instead of asking me if I wanted to stop having sex knowing it was my first time and I was sobbing in pain and I didn't want to do it the only words that came out of his mouth were 'we need to break you in.' I WASNT there in that moment mentally," she wrote.

"I disassociated myself and just felt like my mind was gone I was in shock I couldn't leave I was only 5'2 and 98 pounds. He made me think this is how sex was supposed to be."

As her since-deleted post began trending on Twitter, Elgort sought advice from associates and friends to mitigate the damage.

Rather than let a professional handle the damage control, he decided to tackle the job himself by posting a public apology on Instagram.

"I was distressed to see the social media post about me that have been circulating in the past 24 hours," he told his 10 million followers on Saturday.

"I cannot claim to understand Gabby's feelings but her description of events is simply not what happened. I have never and would never assault anyone."

Elgort admitted having a relationship with the girl when she was a minor, but he described their relationship as "brief, legal and entirely consensual".

He suggested the woman revealed their intimate relationship now because he cut her off and stopped responding to her messages.

"I know this belated apology does not absolve me of my unacceptable behavior when I disappeared," he wrote. "As I look back at my attitude, I am disgusted and deeply ashamed of the way I acted. I am truly sorry. I know I must continue to reflect, learn, and work to grow in empathy."
 

Elgort's post sparked angry responses on social media.

"Of course you’re claiming it was legal and consensual. Classic move trying to make the girl sound like she accused you because you dumped her," wrote one user.

Another user wrote: "if she's 17 that's not consentual or legal [sic]. take the L and go to jail!"

Instagram model Celina Powell has accused R&B singer Trey Songz of rape. Her accusation was met with skepticism because Trey is rumored to bat for the other team, and Celina is rumored to be a male-to-female trans because of her masculine features.

In a podcast interview with NoJumper, Celina claims she was raped by the 34-year-old "Panty Droppa" singer who invited her to enjoy a sexual tryst with him. Celina said when she arrived, there were several other women in the room.

She said she wasn't open to participating in an orgy so she tried to leave. But Trey allegedly held her down and forced himself on her.

Celina, 24, claims a rape kit administered at a local hospital recovered semen which can be linked to Trey through DNA.

Celina has a reputation as an industry mattress with the tags removed.

She has been linked to rappers such as Snoop Dogg, Offset, Fetty Wap, Waka Flocka Flame, Swae Lee and Fabulous, as well as NBA star Dwight Howard.

If you recall, Celina nearly destroyed Cardi B and Offset's marriage by claiming she had an affair with the promiscuous rapper and almost had his baby.

Cardi dumped Offset but later took him back after he begged and pleaded publicly for forgiveness.

Antonio Brown scored his first touchdown in a Patriots uniform on Sunday. But his life off the field continues to spiral out of control.

A second woman has accused the star wide receiver of misconduct, according to Sports Illustrated.

Brown was initially accused of misconduct by a woman he knew from college.

Britney Taylor, Brown's former personal trainer, filed a federal lawsuit, accusing the All-Pro wide receiver of raping her on multiple occasions.

Brown vigorously denied the allegations. Then a second accuser came forward.

The woman, who spoke to SI on condition of anonymity, said Brown exposed himself to her when he asked her to come to his house to paint his portrait after they met at a charity softball game in Pittsburgh.

The woman was auctioning off a portrait she'd painted of Brown to benefit the National Youth Foundation, which promotes inclusion and gender equality.

Brown reportedly loved the portrait so much he offered her $700 - more than the $450 winning bid price.

He asked her to come to his home to paint his portrait, and she agreed.

She said after she arrived at his home, Brown emerged from the bathroom wearing nothing but a cloth covering his genitals.

"He was flirty with me but I paid him no mind because I was there on business, plus, I had already seen him with multiple girls in the short time I was with him," the woman said. "I was about 40 percent done on the second day, and I'm on my knees painting the bottom, and he walks up to me butt a** naked, with a hand cloth covering his (penis) and starts having a conversation with me."

She added: "Unfortunately, I've been tried (by men) a lot of times, so I just kept my cool and kept painting. After that, it all ended abruptly."

She said Brown left for Miami the next day and she never heard from him or his assistants again.

She was paid $2,000 for the parts of the mural that she painted, but the foundation wasn't paid the $700 for the painting.

The woman said she was unbothered at the time and she opted not to press charges.
