On October 14th, 2019, beauty YouTuber Cole Carrigan created a video making false allegations about the Ace Family.
In the video titled ‘The truth about the Ace family’, Cole claimed that a friend of his called him in June saying that Austin McBroom had raped her in a hotel in Miami. The video has since been deleted and Carrigan admitted he had lied about the Ace Family and the video was completely false.
Austin also denied the claims on his Twitter account and added that the false video made him a victim of “extortion, defamation, and slander”.
The girl in question, Leslie Hannah Belle, also made a post confirming that “Austin McBroom is not to blame” and he “did not rape me or anyone”.
