The actress continued, “You just hope that the people involved are OK, that they are asked in a respectful manner and that they are given the opportunity to answer for themselves.”
E! News reached out to Elgort’s rep for comment and hasn’t heard back.
In June 2020, a Twitter user named Gabby alleged in a now-deleted tweet that Elgort “sexually assaulted me when I was 17,” after she allegedly DMed the actor online.
Elgort denied the allegations in a since-deleted post on Instagram that month, writing, “I cannot claim to understand Gabby’s feelings but her depiction of events is simply not what happened.”
“I have never and would never assault anyone,” he said. “What is true is that in New York in 2014, when I was 20, Gabby and I had a brief, legal and entirely consensual relationship.”
Following his statement, Elgort largely stayed out of the spotlight for over a year until September 2021, when he attended the Daily Front Row’s 8th annual Fashion Media Awards with his parents. In November, the actor took to the red carpet for the New York City premiere of West Side Story alongside his long-time girlfriend Violetta Komyshan, marking their first public appearance together since January 2020.
