the case was closed in 2021 and the accused was dismissed.

On his Instagram account, Benvenuto gave more details: “I don't like to talk about these issues.
Today I am a very happy person.
But sometimes I feel compelled to do so.
None of what happened was my fault.
And it is something that does not define me today because I am a stronger person.
There are thousands of cases like Matías and mine, ”he wrote.
For his part, Jey Mammón published on his Twitter account at 6:04 p.m.: "Before the dissemination of a complaint that the Justice decided to prescribe, in the case of a false episode in much of its content, I feel the need to inform that this action, which seeks unspeakable profits to the detriment of my person, is added to a persistent campaign of harassment and defamation".
"I have suffered extortionate behavior on the part of the person who filed a complaint that the Justice dismissed and closed," the driver wrote.
"Without prejudice to the legal actions to be taken, it is imperative to make it clear that the situation raised is the product of the conduct of a person who, in this case, and before the Justice, has acted untruthfully."
And he added: "The media installation of the subject has put at stake the prestige and honor of the person who speaks to them in a delicate and sensitive event for the whole of society."
"I pray to God that it flows, the truth is exposed and known," he concluded.
