Mötley Crüe co-founder and bassist Nikki Sixx breaks his silence about possible sexual assault in the memoir book, The Dirt which released in 2001.
The band’s biography movie, “The Dirt – Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band.” will premiere on Netflix March 22nd. The movie will be an adaptation of The Dirt.
However, before its release, there are lots of speculations going around, especially about the rape story exists in The Dirt.
Nikki Sixx breaks his silence about that rape story and said that the story was ‘fabricated’ or ‘greatly embellished.’
Here is what Sixx said:
“The book was written in 2000 during a really low point in my life. I had lost my sobriety and was using drugs and alcohol to deal with a disintegrating relationship which I still to this day regret how I handled… I honestly don’t recall a lot of the interviews with Neil.
I don’t actually recall that story in the book beyond reading it. I have no clue why it’s in there other than I was outta my head and it’s possibly greatly embellished or I made it up. Those words were irresponsible on my part. I am sorry.
There is a lot of horrible behavior in the book. What I can tell you is that we all lived to regret a lot and learned from it. We own up to all our behavior that hurt our selves [sic], our families, friends and any innocents around us.”
