In the latest video posting, he did not address or apologize to Millie directly but did express regret for how he came off in the now viral clips.

Ecimovic said: ‘I’m also seeing lots of clips of it over the internet and people are trying to make it 10 times worse. 

‘Besides the point, the livestream – I am sorry for. I’m not proud of it at all, or how I spoke.

‘It sounded very immature, looked horrible. I am sorry for doing that livestream. I should have ended it, but I chose not to. I said what I said and I can’t take it back. I just want you to know I’m not OK with what I said. I’m not trying to justify it at all.’

Ecimovic took to Instagram Live on Monday  to make crude comments about Brown, as well as to allege several sexual encounters with the British actress, Brown and Ecimovic are seen in 2020

He expressed frustration over the commenters on his livestream and said their negativity was the reason the conversation had reached that place.

 Ecimovic explained: ‘I wanted to address the livestream incident that happened. It should never have happened in the first place. It was stupidity on my part. It was not ok for me to go live as it was getting more and more negative in the comments.

‘I probably live-streamed for about two to three hours and in those two to three hours, I was getting more and more drunk. So after I kept seeing how negative the comments were and seeing whatever people were saying to me, when they don’t know about anything ever, it was getting me more and more irritated and then the alcohol – so I became more careless.

‘I said stuff that should have never been said. My natural instinct when I see people saying that stuff … that’s how I decided to handle it.’

On Tuesday, Millie’s team branded the comments on his livestream as ‘dishonest, irresponsible, offensive and hateful’ as she denied having a sexual relationship with him when she was just 16.  

Ecimovic hosted an Instagram Live on Monday and made a series of wild and salacious claims about the actress. 

The pair had been photographed together in 2020, embracing and looking happy.

Ecimovic claimed in his Instagram that he lived with Brown, then 16, and her parents for eight months and that he ‘thought her mum and dad knew about everything.’

A representative for the Stranger Things star said that Ecimovic is not only being 'untruthful,' but also 'irresponsible, offensive and hateful' and that they are 'taking action to ensure he stops this behavior once and for all'

‘Instead of engaging in a public discourse with him through the press or on social media, we are taking action to ensure that he stops this behavior once and for all.’

The age of consent in California, where Ecimovic is based, is 18. 

Brown is a British citizen, where the age of consent is 16. She also owns a home in Atlanta, Georgia, where the age of consent is also 16. 

Brown has this summer been dating Jake Bongiovi, the 19-year-old son of Jon Bon Jovi, who is currently studying at Syracuse University.

She was previously linked to David and Victoria Beckham’s son Romeo, 18. 

Fans of the actress were angered by Ecimovic’s comments on Monday, and flooded the comment section with questions and criticism. 

Ecimovic during the Instagram Live doubled down, and refused to say sorry for his lewd claims about their sex life.

‘You guys don’t know anything. You guys are just following after one person saying one thing, like, everybody hates him so that everyone’s going to hate me,’ he said. 

‘You guys just follow each other like a big duck followed by little ducks. Whatever the top thing is, you just follow up. 

‘You guys don’t know the story of anything, and I will never apologize. I hope you know that.’

Ecimovic, shirtless and with his friends chuckling from behind him, continued: ‘I have nothing to apologize for, so make that clear. I have zero things to apologize for. You guys do not know a single thing at all.’ 

After Ecimovic ended his Instagram Live, footage was screen-grabbed and shared across social media.

In response, supporters of Brown created their own social media accounts to ‘expose’ Ecimovic.

Ecimovic’s Instagram is currently unavailable.
