Earlier this month, several women alleged Ameer Vann of Brockhampton had been “Emotionally manipulative and mentally abusive.” Shortly after, further accusations of abusive behavior and claims he had sexual relations with a minor surfaced.
In repsonse to the allegations Ameer Vann responded:
In response to the claims of emotional and sexual abuse: although my behavior has been selfish, childish, and unkind, I have never criminally harmed anyone or disrespected their boundaries. I have never had relations with a minor or violated anybody’s consent.

Now, Brockhampton has collectively announced that Ameer is no longer part of the group.
“We want to sincerely apologize to the victims affected by Ameer’s actions. We were lied to, and we’re sorry for not speaking up sooner.” All of Brockhampton were deactivated on Twitter as the allegations came to light, and as such they faced criticism for not handling the matter in a speedier fashion.
Ameer is an original member of Brockhampton, and was a part of Kevin Abstract’s previous group, ALIVESINCEFOREVER. Brockhampton recently signed with RCA records in March for a reported $15 million.
