Andrea Garrison who works as a model filed the complaint against Couzens. Garrison claims that she was threatened with blackmail and that Couzens made explicit videos without consent. Multiple women have spoken out against Couzens actions.

“I feel like, at this point, it’s no longer what he did to me, what he did to the other women. It’s no longer about that. It’s about the fact that the Church allows this. That the Church is OK with this. The Church is OK with sending threats to people who are just trying to expose something that’s bad happening,” Garrison said.

She added, “I’m tired of this type of stuff being swept under the rug and I’m tired of being hushed when all this could have been avoided with him just keeping it real.”

Couzens did not immediately respond to request for comment.
