Sebastien Leggett, frontman for L.A football League FC Dallas admitted Monday that it was short-handed but claimed it was the victim of an “extortion plot” amid rumors that it cheated on fiancee Becky G just three months after their engagement.
Lletget faced allegations last week that he cheated on the singer in 2022 when he was on Nightclub in Madrid. It is unclear when the alleged infidelity occurred. The two have been together since 2016 and got engaged in December.
Lletget addressed the allegations in a lengthy statement on Instagram.
“As an athlete, I have always tried to set myself to a higher level, while acknowledging the blessings and perks of my career. When I think back on the past seven years of my life, I know in my heart that not much of my personal and professional development, let alone the challenges in my life, could have been accomplished without Becky’s love and support is by my side,” he began his statement.
“But behind this exuberance, there is a truth that I hid from everyone around me. I suffered from personal trauma and acute anxiety exacerbated by denial, pride, and bad decisions.”
“Over the past several weeks, during a moment of great regret, 10 minutes in judgment led to an extortion plot. Since this person didn’t get what they wanted, it’s now a public spectacle on social media filled with more lies than any postings of truth and falsehood. Aiming at the love of my life, the one person I should never take for granted or put in danger.
“While this nameless internet stalker—whom I had never met, contrary to what they claimed—had an end goal that wasn’t clear, for me it was a wake-up call. The loudest alert of my life. I can’t keep running from demons. I know that any Actions taken that put us here that should never have happened in the first place.Pushing straight to the lines that should never be crossed hurts me and the people I love most.
“This past week of chaos and pain has forced me to confront the consequences of my actions, my fears. The man I aspire to be, I must do better. I have decided to commit myself to a mental health program to work on the parts of myself that I desperately need to heal…”
Lletget apologized to Becky G and the FC Dallas fans.
He added, “For Becky, you have been the light in my life, my strength, who has always shown me unconditional love.” “Instead of honoring that love every single day, I did the opposite, hurt you, and disrespect the person I love most. I’m so sorry and I know I have to do whatever it takes to get the trust back and your love is worth.”
Becky G did not respond to Lletget’s statement. She still has pictures of Lletget on her Instagram.
Lletget is in his second season with FC Dallas. He played in the New England Revolution for part of the 2022 season and prior to that was with the Los Angeles Galaxy for seven years.
