A few weeks ago James Ellsworth was making headlines for all the wrong reasons after a 16 year old girl claimed that she had nude photos of Ellsworth which were sent to her by Ellsworth himself via Snapchat. Since then James Ellsworth has been quiet on social media, but his lawyer did issue the following statement after the allegations were made:
My client, James Morris, known publicly and professionally as James Ellsworth has become aware of a number of baseless allegations. Mr. Morris has the utmost respect for women and categorically denies these inflammatory and despicable accusations. Bates & Garcia, Attorneys at Law

Ellsworth has now issued a statement of his own saying that there’s a witness willing to testify on his behalf who has evidence which proves he’s innocent.
The statement reads as follows:
“Recently, allegations of misconduct have been lodged against me which I categorically deny. I never have, nor will I ever engage in any activity that could be deemed as inappropriate or disrespectful. My delay in publicly commenting on this situation was based on the advice of my legal team which has just completed a thorough investigation. My attorneys have pinpointed a trusted witness who is willing to testify on my behalf. In addition, they have uncovered concrete evidence that supports my innocence and proves that without a shadow of a doubt the social media accounts alleged to be mine are fake and the messages from the account were fraudulently created without my knowledge or consent. My only hope is to restore my reputation as I, along with my family, friends and supporters have suffered because of a social media stunt devised to end my professional wrestling career. My team and I are prepared to pursue legal action against any party that persists with the promotion of these lies.”
