"Many of you [have been] asking me 'Why would you stay with him if it happened last year!,'" she wrote."My theory was, and as horrible as this is, is that if I left him, he'd do it to the next girl. I tried to fix him."

"We have both grown and changed so much at this point and it has been an extremely difficult thing to relive / even go thru ... and I hope ALL of my fans learn from my foolishness," she continued. "If someone is mistreating you in ANY way please speak up. Don't make the same mistakes I did, your safety is never worth it. No matter what, no one deserves to be treated that way."

The audio in question features the alleged voices of Gilinsky and Beer as Gilinsky repeatedly calls his girlfriend a "slut" and threatens to cheat on her with "every girl in L.A."

Gilinsky, 20, also released a lengthy statement on his Twitter account, revealing that the recording was taken "last year" during one of their "lowest points" as a couple. Gilinsky revealed in his statement that they "aren't together now," though they had previously "worked [through] it together as a couple."

"There's no justifying the words that came out of my mouth in that audio file," he wrote. "In no way do I stand behind who I was in that part of my life. But people change & learn from their mistakes. [...] I was in a very dark place, & clearly had no control over my emotions."

The two have clearly experienced their fair share of ups and downs as a couple. Last year, Beer came out on YouTube and revealed that she had romantic feelings for another young woman. For more, watch the video above.
