      Earlier this week a video of Dallas Austin was leaked onto the internet where the Atlanta producer was calling out Christina Aguilera and Joss Stone for allegedly sleeping with producers to get their beats for their albums. Austin worked on Aguilera’s last album and on Joss Stone’s debut album.

      After all the fanfare and outrage of Austin’s comments, he released a statement apologizing to the singers for his words:

       “Every action generates an equal and opposite reaction. My statement about Christina Aguilera and Joss Stone was a reaction to an incident I care not to discuss in any forum, and while I may have felt justified, I do owe an apology to Christina, Joss and their families.

      “The comments I made about Christina Aguilera and Joss Stone were purely an act of retaliation not of malice or cruel intent. As we all have our boiling points, I sincerely apologize as this is not my character nor should I have let anyone’s actions push me to this limit. I have let my family, friends, employees and business associates down with my actions.

      “All content and any malicious statements that were in my control have been removed from outlets that may have posted this.

      “Please accept this as my formal statement and apology to all parties involved.”
