It’s been a few weeks since the news broke of Robert Kraft and dozens of other men being caught up in a sweep of prostitution and human trafficking massage parlors around the Jupiter, Florida area.
The New England Patriots owner had yet to speak out on the allegations until Saturday when he finally released a statement about the entire situation.
Kraft mentioned his enormous respect for women in that statement, despite being accused of frequenting this Asian Spa on two different occasions and paying for sexual things to be done to him.
“In deference to the judicial process, I have remained silent these past several weeks. To correct some of the misinformation surrounding this matter, my attorney made his first public comments on Friday night. I would like to use this opportunity to say something that I have wanted to say for four weeks.
“I am truly sorry. I know I have hurt and disappointed my family, my close friends, my co-workers, our fans and many others who rightfully hold me to a higher standard.
“Throughout my life, I have always tried to do the right thing. The last thing I would ever want to do is disrespect another human being. I have extraordinary respect for women; my morals and my soul were shaped by the most wonderful woman, the love of my life, who I was blessed to have as my partner for 50 years.
“As I move forward, I hope to continue to use the platform with which I have been blessed to help others and to try to make a difference. I expect to be judged not by my words, but by my actions. And through those actions, I hope to regain your confidence and respect.”
