Becky G‘s fiancé Sebastian Lletget is issuing a public apology amid rumors that he cheated.
Taking to Instagram on Monday, the soccer star, 30, shared a lengthy statement, noting that there’s a “reality I’ve hit from everyone around me.”
“Over the last few weeks, during a moment I regret deeply, a 10 minute lapse in judgment resulted in an extortion plot,” he wrote in the post, which comes just days after he was accused of being unfaithful to Becky, 26. “Since this person did not get what they wanted it has now become a public social media spectacle filled with more lies than any truth and false posts aimed at the love of my life, the one person who I should never take for granted or put at risk.”
Lletget went on to say that the incident was “a wake-up call” and “the loudest alarm” of his life.
“I can’t keep running from demons. I know that any actions made that put us here should have never happened to begin with,” he continued, before sharing that he has decided to commit himself to a “mental wellness program” to work on the parts of himself that “deeply need healing.”
Speaking directly to the “Shower” singer, he added, “To Becky, you have been the light of my life, my strength, who has always shown me unconditional love. Instead of honoring that love every day, I have done the opposite, hurting you and disrespecting the one person that I love more than anything. I am so sorry and know I have to do whatever it takes to earn back the trust and love you deserve.”
The apology comes more than three months after the couple, who have been dating since 2016, announced their engagement.
