Statement of January Gessert

I am shocked, frightened and crushed that leaving a friend's house can be so misconstrued to turn my whole life upside down. I can't believe that people and the media will go to such great lengths to create a completely fabricated story to boost ratings. Meanwhile I wake up with anxiety afraid to answer the front door or my phone because it many mean having to respond to more false reports about me. I do not deserve the derogatory comments about me, which are degrading, humiliating and hurtful. I am glad to have this opportunity to tell the world the truth, and I hope that no one else will have to be the victim as I have been of pure nonsense and made-up tabloid drama.
