TikToker Jorge Garay has allegedly gone “missing” after he and his boyfriend, Benji Krol, were accused of grooming a minor.

Last week, the 15-year-old victim alleged the two groomed him and sent him explicit messages and photos.

"They took advantage of my friendship, and exploited and coerced me, a minor, into doing what they wanted for sexual pleasure. They used their power as an influencer to manipulate me into doing what they wanted because our feelings were 'mutual,' 'I knew what I was doing,' and because 'I wanted it.' Looking back at all of this, it is very easy to be manipulated by someone older than you," the victim said in the allegations he made through an anonymous Twitter account.

Following this, Krol said some of the allegations were true. He also claimed he wasn’t able to address the allegations swiftly because he had attempted suicide.

"The reason it’s taken so long is because I tried to kill myself. I was in the hospital and I’ve been recovering and trying to piece everything together. I’m not trying to gain sympathy points from telling you this, I’m just giving the real explanation you all deserve for being late to respond. The reason for me trying was due to a lot of things building up and not directly because of this, it’s not the first time," he tweeted.

Krol also tweeted he and Garay had broken up due to the allegations.

"I still take full responsibility for my own actions. I don't even know the full story because Jorge knows everything else, but I have no way of finding the rest out. I wake up in the hospital alone and now knowing where he was. I currently only know he left me and I assume he went back to his own home which is hours away. He was only briefly spoken to me and has no intention of seeing me anytime soon," he said.

Garay, on the other hand, has remained silent. In fact, nobody exactly knows about Garay’s whereabouts. He has also gone missing from social media and has deactivated his Instagram.
