“He’s incredibly apologetic and knows that he has done wrong,” reads a text linked to Deuters. “He wants to get better now.”

“Obviously he has no idea what he did or the text that he did it. If someone was truly honest with him about how bad it really was, he’d be appalled,” she allegedly continues.
“I’m sad that he doesn’t have a better way to really know the severity of his actions yesterday. Unfortunately for me, I remember in full detail everything that happened.”
