Gat went on Twitter on Wednesday and vehemently denied the allegations against him.

“I clearly want to resolve the horrific and completely untrue allegations made against me,” he wrote. “They are 100% clearly wrong and reckless. I have confirmed the errors and misleading information in today’s press release. I am fully cooperating with the police and LAPD to get to the bottom of this.
