David Ellefson fights attack


Following the recent leak of inappropriate material on the internet and his dismissal by Megadeth, Ellefson takes action with a new statement.

“Recently, a very private video was illegally posted on the internet and false allegations were made against me,” Ellefson said in an official statement. “The actions in the video were between two consenting adults and were recorded without my knowledge. I am working with Scottsdale Police Department in their investigation into charges regarding revenge pornography to be filed against the person who posted this video. Also, my lawyers are preparing a defamation lawsuit to be filed against this person. This person will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

“I am taking this time to be with my family,” the statement continued. “I wish my bandmates the best with their upcoming tour.”
