Drake Bell Denies Abuse Allegations From Ex-girlfriend Melissa Lingafelt

Drake Bell has denied verbal and physical abusing his ex-girlfriend Melissa Lingafelt.

In a Tiktok video shared on Wednesday, 12th August, Melissa alleged the verbal abuse began about a year into their relationship — they started dating when she was age 16.

In a statement, Bell said he never abused Lingafelt “I never abused my ex-girlfriend or did so many of the other things Melissa falsely claimed on her TikTok video,” he said. “As our relationship ended — more than a decade ago — we, unfortunately, both called each other terrible names, as often happens when couples are breaking up. But that is it.”

He added: “Clearly, Melissa still felt close enough to me just last year that she was comfortable reaching out to ask me to provide her with financial support during a tough time (which I did). I do not know if today’s behavior is some kind of misguided quest for more money or attention. But I cannot and will not allow these offensive and defamatory allegations to go unchallenged and I am reviewing my legal options.”
