Mike Fuentes, drummer of the postpunk band Pierce The Veil has been accused of sexual misconduct with women who was underaged at that time. Fuentes has released a statement in which he decides to leave the band and work on his current way of living.
Mike Fuentes has been accused of carrying on a sexual relationship with a woman who was at the time 16. According to the detailed note written by an anonymous woman and posted on Twitter by user @punkdoll (who is not the anonymous woman), she met Fuentes on MySpace when she was 15 years old. Upon turning 16, she met Fuentes at a Pierce The Veil show in Anaheim, CA, and made out with him. Another woman named Shannon Bray claims Fuentes asked her for nude photographs of herself when she was 15 years old.
Pierce The Veil has also released a statement commenting Mike’s decision:
“As a band, we are respecting Mike’s decision to take break and step away. Unfortunately, without a core member of the band, we will be respectfully withdrawing from the upcoming U.K. tour with All Time Low. We promise our fans that we will be back again very soon.”
