That’s when Caelynn, still upset, pulls Blake aside. He’s more apologetic to her, saying he had no idea she felt this way. “I feel like a slimy, disgusting secret that you’re ashamed of. You literally told me to lie for you,” Caelynn tells Blake through tears.
And then the drama transitions to real life. In an attempt to clear his name, Blake released a series of screen shots of text messages with Caelynn that he claims show she was aware their hookup was meant to be casual. “If I come over it’s strictly for sex,” Caelynn allegedly says in one of the messages. “Nothing more, nothing less.” The texts also appear as if both were hesitant about going public with the hookup. “If we play it off as not being a big deal then it’s not. Everyone hooks up in this world,” Caelynn reportedly says in a text.
Via both an Instagram Stories video and actual post, Blake explained his decision to publish the texts. “Releasing the text messages was the last thing that I wanted to do,” he says in the videos. “I know that it’s not good, but I feel like I have no other choice but to release those. I hope Caelynn can forgive me one day, but with my character and my name being attacked like that, I felt like I had no other choice. Maybe some of that was edit from Caelynn, and maybe they spliced together some of her conversations; I don’t know. Maybe she can address that later, but I don’t know what else to do.”
He continues, “I’m not trying to go and attack Caelynn. I’m just trying to get my truth out there. I hope none of you go and attack Caelynn. I truly I hope that she has a chance to talk about what was spliced together and what they didn’t show. Maybe she was saying other things. But right now, I feel like I have no choice.”
And here’s his post, which essentially echoes the same sentiment. Caelynn has not responded to Blake’s statements.
Ultimately, though, Blake decided to delete the texts and urged people to stop attacking Caelynn.
