"Last weekend there were some very serious allegations made against myself and other band members of Neck Deep.
I was horrified and sickened by these accusations.
I have now instructed lawyers and contacted the police in order to clear my name and to be proactive in confronting these allegations.
I took the immediate decision to take a break from the band, which was a gut-wrenching decision as we have all worked so hard to get where we have and I do not want to let any of our fans down. I hope our fans understand."
