One of the accusers, leveling charges of sexual assault on Antony, Ingrid Lana, has broken her silence on the leaked Whatsapp chat Antony published on his Instagram handle, MySportDab reports.
Recall Antony took to his social media handle to publish a screenshot of the WhatsApp chat he had with Ingrid Lana before they shared intimate moment.
In the footage, Antony labeled Ingrid Lana as a fraudster who is spewing lies to dent his reputation and bring down his career.
A translated copy of the footage shows Ingrid Lana had purportedly consented to the affair with Antony and was the one even pushing to meet the Man United star.
Now, reacting to Antony’s footage, Ingrid Lana has called out Antony for lying and doctoring the WhatsApp chat to prove his innocence.
In a quote shared by the Sun, Ingrid Lana said;
“Are you desperate? It just shows how much of a liar you are and how you don’t respect women, regardless of whether you flirt with a woman.
“He shared conversations between us as friends… including explicit conversations that don’t even sound like me, because he’s desperate.”
“I saw these images and how he has modified them. I don’t know what he wants to achieve by doing this. I don’t know if he’s desperate because of his fans. All I know is that the truth always comes out.”
Ingrid Lana further shared a video on her Instagram saying
“I feel sorry for you. You’re embarrassing yourself. It was never my intention to jeopardise him or his career.”
Apart from sexual assault, Antony has also been charged for bodily harm due to the allegations made by Ingrid Lana.
Lana had said Antony pushed her to the wall and injured her while trying to forcefully have sex with her.
She also admitted not being romantically involved with him in anyway before the incident.
Manchester United have agreed with Antony to temporarily delay his return to action pending the outcome of the investigations.
