This is to stand by Melanie Martinez. Timothy Heller, the person that accused Melanie of rape told many lies that lost the trust of others and #TimothyHellerIsOverParty was trending on twitter. Including the dates, which Heller said the rape happened on June 25, 2015 but Melanie Martinez was at New York at the time. Yet people don't seem that Melanie is still innocent FOR NOW, and people are still is sending threats to her. "In the United States, a person is considered innocent until proven guilty. The 14th amendment to the US Constitution guarantees to every person, aliens included, “equal protection under the law.”" - Google.
Heller wrote about a difficult night in which she said she "repeatedly said no" to sexual advances from Martinez, which she claims the singer did not accept. "I have kept this secret for years, convincing myself that it wasn't a big deal and I wasn't hurt by it. The thought of accepting that my best friend raped me seems insane," Heller wrote. "But I began to get responses I wasn't expecting. Concerned ones. It's hard to say someone you loved raped you. Someone you STILL love."
Heller went on to describe Martinez as her best friend, one who took her in when life was hard, but then allegedly asserted her "power and control" over Heller during her most difficult times.
The post went on to claim that Martinez continued to make advances on Heller, ignoring Heller's refusals as Martinez allegedly performed oral sex on her and used a sex toy on her without consent. "The bottom line that I need to always remind myself is that: I said no," she wrote. "For TWO NIGHTS STRAIGHT. It doesn't matter that I didn't resist during the action. I had been broken down. She knew I didn't want to, I made that clear."
Singer Melanie Martinez has posted additional comments in response to an accusation of sexual assault and rape by friend and fellow aspiring musician Timothy Heller.
Martinez, who appeared as a finalist on The Voice in 2012, adamantly denied the accusation on Dec. 5, writing, “I am horrified and saddened by the statements and story told tonight by Timothy Heller.” On Saturday (Dec. 9), she followed up by thanking fans for their support. Read below:
“I understand how hard it could be to see my side of the story, considering no one with a heart would want to invalidate anyone speaking up about this topic. I want to thank my fans who took the time to research the timeline, analyze past Instagram photos, and question the story being told, which reveal her false statements. I trusted so many people in my life who took advantage of that trust for their own personal gain. Please know that my intentions with everything that I do in my life are always pure and I would never be intimate with someone without their absolute consent.”
Sign to let Melanie Martinez make music in peace, end the hate, end the threats after the accusation she denied. Stand by her.
