EC3 says he hopes Velveteen Dream "finds the help he needs" but also forgives him for allegedly setting up a recording device in the bathroom of his home.
On Wednesday, Patrick Clark (FKA Velveteen Dream) posted a video on Instagram denying EC3's allegations that he filmed people in the bathroom without their consent at a house party in 2018. Clark alluded to drug use during the party as well.
EC3 issued a response to Clark's video to PW Insider on Thursday.
“In life, I forgive everyone for everything that has been done to me.
I personally have never failed a drug test from any employer, nor been arrested for drug usage, paraphernalia, assault, battery, or any inappropriate behavior.
My forgiveness includes Patrick Clark for setting up a video recording device in the bathroom of my home.
As far as any other accusations and allegations against him, I hope that he finds the help he needs.”
During an interview with Sportskeeda earlier this month, EC3 detailed what happened at the party.
“We had a party and it was at my place, and [Clark] came over because I’m being friendly and I’m...top guy and I tried to welcome everybody into the thing. He left his phone in my bathroom with the camera on trying to capture people taking pisses," EC3 said.
Clark then gave his side of the story on Instagram live.
"I left my phone on your bathroom counter and because you were not sure of my sexuality at the time because of the character I played on TV and because we are not friends in real life at all, you tried to accuse me of recording you in your home. So what did I do? I went to our mutual friend who no longer works for the WWE, a former NXT talent, and I showed him my phone and had him go through my photos and videos and my recently deleted just to prove to you and the other person who was there, who because I respect him and he has a job, I'm not going to put him there. I had him prove to you that I was not recording you."
