Danny Elfman is responding to allegations that he sexually abused a woman in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Two different women have accused the 70-year-old musician of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and similar transgressions. In July, composer Nomi Abadi sued Danny for failing to pay an $830,000 settlement over a sexual harassment case from 2018.
In October, a second woman came forward, accusing Danny of sexually abusing her from 1997 to 2002 while she was a 21-year-old student at the New York Film Academy.
