The allegations surfaced on Twitter a few days ago...
Panic! at the Disco have announced that they will no longer be working with their guitarist Kenny Harris.
Taking to Twitter over the past weekend, the 'High Hopes' hitmakers tweeted: "Touring musician Kenny Harris will no longer be performing with us because of a personal matter." Kenny had been touring with the band since 2013. The news comes just days after multiple sexual misconduct allegations surfaced against the 37-year-old backing artist on social media.
On September 20th, an individual posted a thread on Twitter in which she detailed an experience that she allegedly had with Kenny when she was 16. In it, she claims that Kenny asked her for pics on Snapchat in a suggestive manner. Since then, an array of other people have come forward with similar alleged experiences regarding Kenny.
Other stories include Kenny allegedly asking a group of 16-year-old girls if they would send him nudes and also one claiming that he messaged a 14-year-old fan, requesting for her to send him "better" selfies.
Here are just a few of the allegations.
