The television host and comedian Juan Martín Rago, better known as Jey Mammon (46), published a video on his social networks on Wednesday in which he categorically denies having sexually abused Lucas Benvenuto, who a few days ago denounced him for having taken advantage of him since he was 14 years old.
“I am going through perhaps the worst moment of my life. I have never experienced the levels of anguish that I am experiencing and what I am feeling I did not know that it could be felt, that a person could experience what I am experiencing. Is new for me”, said at the beginning. “I want to go out and shout on all sides what I am going to tell them (…) I did not rape, I did not abuse, I did not drug anyone. Never. Never in my life, nor have I done it, nor would I do it, nor will I do it. I strongly deny it. We are talking about a 14-year-old boy, this is what is important”.
In the filming that lasts just over 7 minutes, the driver stated that he knows Benvenuto. “I’m not going to say ‘I don’t know who he is, I don’t know him’. I met Lucas on April 25, 2009. He says he saw me, and He says he was 14 years old. He was 16 at that party, that’s where we met, We exchanged a few words. There are witnesses, there are videos, what I am saying can be proven”. He then explained that They maintained a relationship with twists and turns for approximately 9 years, that is, until the 25th birthday of Benvenuto. “A relationship full of love and consent”, assured.

“I understand that Lucas needs to heal his story, but it is not accusing me of things that are not true, things that I did not do. It is not like this”, continuous. On the steps he will follow, under the patronage of Fernando BurlandoJey assured: “I do not want an arrangement or pact between the parties. I want to make it very clear. I don’t want a pact, I don’t want any of that. The damage that is being done to me is so enormous that I do not want to, I need the trial to the truth. And the elements are there so that I can carry it out”. And finally, with a broken voice he said: “I need to get my life back, as simple as I tell you. Thank you”.
