Jason Derulo is slamming allegations brought against him in a new lawsuit.

In a video posted to social media, the singer addressed the lawsuit Emaza Gibson filed accusing him of dropping her record deal after she rejected his sexual advances—with him emphatically denying any wrongdoing.

"I wouldn't normally comment but these claims are completely false and hurtful," Derulo said in a video posted to Instagram Oct. 5. "I stand against all forms of harassment, and I remain supportive of anybody following their dreams. I' ve always strived to live my life in a positively impactful way, and that's why I sit here before you deeply offended by these defamatory claims. God bless."

His statement comes hours after Gibson filed the lawsuit against him as well as his Future History label and Atlantic Records in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

In the filing, she says that the "Whatcha Say" artist contacted her about a joint venture between Atlantic Records, which he's signed to, and Future History in August 2021. As part of the deal, Gibson would work closely with Derulo on a mixtape , an album and a single.
