Violetta and Ansel had broken up in August 2014 due to his busy schedule – during the time of the alleged assault – but ended up back together by January 2015.
In June of 2020, the twitter user @Itsgabby shared her ‘story of Ansel Elgort,’ claiming she was ‘sexually assaulted a couple days after I turned 17.’
She wrote that she had DMed the rising Hollywood star when she was ‘just a kid and was a fan of him,’ though she didn’t expect a reply.
The user claimed that Elgort had sex with her when she was a minor and hadn’t stopped after she was clearly in pain.
‘So when it happened instead of asking me if I wanted to stop having sex knowing it was my first time and I was sobbing in pain and I didn’t want to do it the only words that came out of his mouth were “we need to break you in,”‘ she wrote. ‘I WASN’T there in that moment mentally. I disassociated myself and just felt like my mind was gone I was in shock.’

She also posted DMs that appeared to from the actor that were dated to 2014, as well as a photo that was purportedly of her with Elgort, though her face was partially blocked out by her hand.
The user added that she was too small to have fought Elgort off.
‘He made me think this is how sex was supposed to be. I WAS SO YOUNG AND HE KNEW THAT,’ she continued. ‘He as well said stuff like “you’re going to be such a beautiful young lady when you’re older.” I was f***ing 17.’
Later in the thread, she claimed that the Carrie actor had asked her for nude photos and had even suggested a threesome with one of her friends.
The user, who claimed to suffer from PTSD following the alleged assault, said that Elgort told her not to speak of their relationship because it could ‘ruin his career.’
He denied the accusations in an Instagram post shared days after the accusations, though he later deleted it and all other posts from his account.

I cannot claim to understand Gabby’s feelings but her description of events is simply not what happened,’ he wrote, before alleging that ‘Gabby and I had a brief, legal and entirely consensual relationship.’
However, he apologized for the manner in which he broke up with Gabby.
‘As I look back at my attitude, I am disgusted and deeply ashamed of the way I acted,’ he wrote.
Meanwhile back in September Ansel sparked dating rumors with his former The Fault In The Stars co-star Shailene Woodley.
