He told Rolling Stone magazine about allegations made in 2017: " "These allegations are pure lies or buyers remorse. I have never and would never rape anyone. All serious allegations have been investigated by police and dismissed by judges, as have most of the accusations of 'groping'. I have never been charged nor spent one day in court for any of this."
