Chris D’Elia Addresses Sexual Misconduct Allegations: ‘I Do Have a Problem’

While known for his stand-up comedy, D'Elia most recently appeared in the second season of "You," where he portrayed a comedian who sexually abuses girls.
Comedian and actor Chris D’Elia posted a 10-minute YouTube video Friday in which he addressed the sexual misconduct allegations leveled against him last summer, stating that he has a "problem" and that sex "controlled" his life. However, he maintained that all of his relationships have been consensual and legal.
D'Elia added that his "life-controlling" problem derailed his relationships, saying that he cheated on most of the women he had been with, including his fiancé, whom he called his "dream girl." He said he has been "doing the work" to be a better role model for his son and has been in recovery for the past couple of months.
And I had a problem and I do have a problem. In his Friday video, D’Elia said he was seeking treatment for his problem with sex. I need to do work on that." "It was the focus, it was my focus all the time. It's not like, months down the line everything's better.
In June 2020, D’Elia began trending on social media on after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct when they were underage, with some being as young as 16 at the time of the alleged encounters. Besides a brief statement denying the allegations in June, D'Elia has not commented further until now. Many alleged that he sent inappropriate messages and attempted to solicit nude photos from them, with one woman accusing him of trying to groom her. Shortly after the allegations came to light, D'Elia released a short statement and was subsequently dropped by his talent agency CAA.
"The lies that I would tell my fiancé, my friends — I'm sorry." "I have a chance to apologize here, to the people who got caught up in that shit," D'Elia said.
