Earlier this week Joanie Faircloth, the woman who accused Conor Oberst of raping her, apologized and admitted she lied about the whole thing. Today, Oberst issued a statement accepting Faircloth’s apology. Read the statement below.
I have accepted Joanie Faircloth’s apology and retraction to clear my name. This has been extremely difficult and stressful for me personally and for those I love. I’m appreciative of the family, friends, fans, and business partners who supported me throughout this and look forward to happier times as we all move forward with our lives.
