However, Elije filed a lawsuit which Howard denied and tried to clear his name back in 2019. Following the accusations, Howard replied:


It ended up being a situation that was, it went viral. People were talking about it, and it upset me because I didn’t even know who the person was. Why would somebody, who I never met, never had any contact with, make up a whole story about me? I saw all the hate, the pure hate, from people that I’ve never met before, just pile up everywhere I went. I’m not gay. It’s a lot of people who are and they have to hide, and there’s people who have mental issues and they have to hide. There’s people who have different problems in life and they have to hide.”
