Remember Yusaf Mack, the Philadelphia boxer that claimed he was drugged before appearing in a gay porno? Well, now Mack is coming clean about what really happened on the day he filmed a sex scene with two other men. In a statement released this week, Mack said he was lying about being drugged.
“I have never spoke negatively about the company that produced the film although the claim to have been given a drug by someone during set was a lie. I was completely aware and fully conscious during the film,” he allegedly wrote. “I did participate in the adult film because at the time I needed money but also because I am a bisexual man. Meaning I enjoy safely being intimate with whomever I choose.”
Mack admits he lied about being drugged because “my life was completely destroyed once it had been outed that I participated in a gay film.”The boxer’s retraction comes just days after he was threatened with a lawsuit by the makers of the XXX flick, DawgPoundUSA, after making the drugging allegation. The company released a statement of their own about the claim:
“DawgPoundUSA.com is a reputable company which has produced high quality videos of men-of-color since 2002.
“At no time have we ever coerced or drugged any of our models. The claims made by Mr. Mack are false, slanderous, and vehemently denied on our part. We intend to take all legal steps necessary to protect our good name and reputation against these patently false and preposterous claims.”
Mack is in talks to appear on Dr. Phil to discuss his crisis.
