The woman has apologized for bringing allegations against him on Tumblr and xoJane last year, acknowledging she “made up those lies about him.”
Joanie Faircloth issued a public retraction on Monday. The Bright Eyes singer said he has accepted her apology.
The allegation has damaged the Bright Eyes singer financially, according to court documents, but he hasn’t been “canned,” as TMZ reported Tuesday. Oberst is currently suing his accuser for libel.
The Bright Eyes singer said the xoJane commenter who detailed their alleged encounter 10 years ago made “despicable, false, outrageous, and defamatory statements.”
The Bright Eyes singer’s publicist said the claim — made in the comments section of xoJane before going viral on Tumblr — is “absolutely, unequivocally false.”
