Luis D. Ortiz sat down for an interview with Rosanna Scotto of Good Day New York in which he discussed the abuse allegations recently made against him.
In the clip, the Bravo TV personality maintained that the claims made against him by his ex-girlfriend, Nikita Singh, are less than factual.
“It’s completely untrue, and the reason I haven’t responded is because one, I don’t have to, number two, this is the private life of my daughter, and number three, this is something that we have to do on our own,” Ortiz told Scotto.
“Regardless of what’s been said, you’ve known me for millions of years, and everybody that knows me for millions of years, I am, I am a saint, and I love my family, and I’ve always been a family man,” he continued.
He also seemed quite adamant on keeping the matter private. “I will continue to do what I have to do, but on my own personal time and in my privacy; I don’t have to share that with anyone,” Ortiz said.
“This is my family, and regardless of people wanting to know something about it, everybody has their own story, and I think that always should stay between the people in it, regardless of celebrity, regardless of you being known, because I’m here to show the world to everybody to inspire everybody, not to talk about my personal problems,” he concluded.
The mother of Ortiz’s child accused the Million Dollar Listing: New York star of “harassment and abuse” just last week.
Singh, who gave birth to the former couple’s child, Leela, in March 2019, recently started a GoFundMe page to raise funds for legal bills amid their ongoing custody battle.
The GoFundMe page, which is titled “Justice for Nikita & Leela legal bills,” claims that the real estate pro is “trying to use his money, connections, and his powerful lawyers” to “crush” her in the legal battle.
She also claims that Ortiz is having her “watched and followed” and asserts that her baby daddy is “continuing to attempt to harass and torment” her.
In his interview, Ortiz told Good Day New York that he would rather talk about his brand new Netflix series instead of detailing the events of his personal life.
