Chris D'Elia Provides E-Mail Exchanges With Sexual Misconduct Accusers
Chris D'Elia's career has been put on pause, and perhaps will be coming to an early conclusion, depending what the fall out is from a slew of sexual misconduct allegations that began to bubble to the surface last week.
The comedian came under public scrutiny when several girls claimed to have had exchanges with D'Elia when they were underage, and what's more, one claimed that D'Elia showed her his erect penis in a hotel room. A few of the reported exchanges did not result in a meet-up, though.
Following both a denial and public apology, Chris D'Elia was later dropped by his agency, CAA, and manager. However it's not over just yet. Today Page Six reveals that D'Elia's team has provided the full e-mail exchanges with his accusers, to show transparency when it comes to what actually went down with the reported minor women.
Rick Diamond/Getty ImagesAs described by Page Six, in one particular exchange with a woman named Clara Schaller from 2012, D'Elia reportedly asked her age, to which she responded jokingly "12," before he pushed her to answer properly, and she replied "24?" While she never actually confirmed her age, he did still ask her for photos. Schaller claimed last week, that she was 17 at the time of the exchange.
Another exchange between D'Elia and Colleen Riley purported that D'Elia asked Riley to "make out," to which she replied "Chris, I’m 16." However in a follow-up to this, as just now revealed, D'Elia replied, "Oh sh**. I thought you were at my [standup] show. Gotta be 18 [to get into that] at least. My bad. Bye." His reps make it a point of stating how this particular response was omitted from Riley's screenshot shares.
In addition to this, D'Elia team released the exchange between him and Simone Rossi, who was the first woman to speak out against him. Rossi alleged that D'Elia and her communicated in 2015, when she was just 16, and he asked her to "make out" as well as send photos, although she claimed he was "grooming" her, they never did meet up. Now, D'Elia's team has shared an e-mail from 2019 in which Rossi sent to D'Elia: "I’m 21 now and [down to f***]." D'Elia reportedly never replied to her e-mail, which may indicate that Rossi was bitter.
As far as the response goes to all these accusations, some of D'Elia's former co-stars are speaking up. See what fellow You actor, Penn Badgely, had to say here. Whitney Cummings responded as well, here.
