Since a rape allegation resurfaced earlier this month, the host has used a clip on his podcast The Brilliant Idiots to address controversies surrounding the case.

“Back in 2015, I attempted to have a dialogue about rape culture with an emphasis on the role men play…I can honestly say that I communicated that all wrong,” he said. “For the record, in 1997 I was having consensual sex with a young lady.”

He continues. saying the encounter was consensual. “I was looking at some comments from rape survivors who were triggered by that conversation, and I have to apologize to y’all because that was not my intention,” he said. “I’ve told people on this podcast numerous times to avoid any gray areas…If she is incoherent in any way, leave her alone. I want to stress that I didn’t take advantage of anyone, and I want to apologize to anyone who was triggered by that story.”

Berkely County officially  reportedly said they will not reopen the case against Charlamagne.
