Bassnectar had previously spoke out on the allegations, posting on a Facebook group called Love Here.
In that, he wrote: "I have never been involved in anything that was not absolutely , unequivocally consensual. During a time when high profile men are being called out for their violence against women, I am proud to be an ally of women, and stand in solidarity with victims."
