Music producer Dallas Austin has released a formal apology to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution directed to Christina Aguilera and Joss Stone after making several lurid sexual claims about the two singers, blaming his vengeful streak for the remarks. “Every action generates an equal and opposite reaction,” Austin writes. “My statement about Christina Aguilera and Joss Stone was a reaction to an incident I care not to discuss in any forum, and while I may have felt justified, I do owe an apology to Christina, Joss and their families. The comments I made about Christina Aguilera and Joss Stone were purely an act of retaliation not of malice or cruel intent. As we all have our boiling points, I sincerely apologize as this is not my character nor should I have let anyone’s actions push me to this limit. I have let my family, friends, employees and business associates down with my actions. All content and any malicious statements that were in my control have been removed from outlets that may have posted this. Please accept this as my formal statement and apology to all parties involved.”
