"Ameer Vann - not only is he a predator and cheater.. he also degrades women, makes forceful advances and does not ease up when asked, is emotionally abusive, uses girl, very] manipulative, has sex with underage/legal fans," she wrote. 

Singer Rhett Rowan, who goes by @RhettRowan on Twitter, claimed to be in a relationship with Ameer back in 2015. She also confirmed some the existing accusations regarding the Houston native and added that he was involved with a minor prior to the two dating.

"I can’t find the original tweets from @tayallard & @GIGlNOTHADID because] I’m in complete shock that this is finally coming to light, but I dated him and can confirm that Ameer Vann Brockhampton is emotionally] manipulative and mentally abusive. #MeToo," Rowan tweeted. "AND can confirm he was having sex with a minor before he dated me in 2015."

The 22-year-old vehemently denied any criminal wrongdoing but admitted to faults in his previous relationships and a willingness to seek help on Twitter later Saturday. 

"I've been in relationships where I've fucked up and disrespected my partners. I've cheated and been dismissive to my exes," Ameer began. "Throughout the past 3 years, I've been working hard to reflect on myself and seek out help. It continues to be a learning process every day."

I'm sorry for cheating. I'm sorry for lying and letting my friends down. I'm sorry for placing my group mates in a difficult situation by not speaking to them about my past experiences earlier. I always hoped to set a good example to my fans.
