Tenoch Huerta, renowned for his role as Namor in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” has come forward to deny a recent allegation of sexual assault made against him. The Marvel star addressed the accusation on Monday after being accused by musician María Elena Ríos, who also referred to him as a “sexual predator.” Huerta firmly asserts that the allegation is “false and completely unsubstantiated.”
In a statement shared on social media, Huerta expressed his determination to challenge Ríos’ accusation, stating that he could not let it go unchallenged any longer. According to Huerta, he and Ríos dated for several months about a year ago, and their relationship was characterized by mutual consent throughout.
Huerta describes their relationship during that time as “loving, warm, and mutually supportive.” However, following their separation, he claims that Ríos began to misrepresent their interactions both privately and in front of their shared friends.
To protect his reputation, Huerta has been working closely with a legal team. He acknowledges that while he is not perfect, he firmly maintains that the allegations against him are false. Huerta emphasizes his commitment to personal growth while contesting claims that he finds both untrue and offensive.
In conclusion, Huerta expresses deep gratitude to his family and those who have supported him. He appreciates those who are willing to examine the facts and exercise reflection before rushing to unfounded and unjust conclusions.
