Soccer star Sebastian Lletget claims he is victim of EXTORTION after rumors he cheated on Becky G

USA soccer star Sebastian Lletget claims he is victim of EXTORTION due to ‘a 10 minute lapse in judgement’ – after an anonymous internet account said he CHEATED on fiancé Becky G

Less than one week after being accused on social media of cheating on his fiancé Becky G, FC Dallas’ Sebastian Lletget has apologized for his actions – but also claimed he was extorted.

In a long statement posted to his Instagram account, Lletget rued his own ‘bad decisions’ and said he was committing himself to a ‘mental wellness facility’:

‘As an Athlete I have always tried to hold myself to a higher standard, recognizing the blessings & privileges in my career. When I reflect on the past 7 years of my life, I know in my heart that I couldn’t have achieved achieved a lot of my personal & professional growth, let alone navigate the challenges in my life without the love and support of Becky by my side,’ he began the statement.

‘Yet behind this abundance, there is a reality I’ve from from everyone around me. I have struggled with personal trauma and acute anxiety compounded by my own denial, pride and bad decisions. 

‘Over the last several weeks, during a moment I regret deeply, a 10 minute lapse in judgement resulted in an extortion plot. Since this person did not get what they wanted it has now become a public social media spectacle filled with more lies than any truth and false posts aimed at the love of my life, the one person who I should never take for granted or put at risk,’ he continued.

‘While this anonymous internet stalker – who I never met, unlike they claimed – had an ultimate goal that was not clear, for me it has been a wake-up call. The loudest alarm of my life. I cant keep running from demons. I know that any actions made that put us here should have never happened to begin with. Pushing right up to the very boundaries of lines that should never be crossed only hurts me and the people I love most.’

‘This past week of chaos & pain has forced me to face the consequences of my actions, my fears & my lapses from the past. [I] have half-heartedly been participating in therapy, knowing I have deeply rooted anger and mental health issues that require the same commitment and treatment that I devote to my physical well-being. If I am to be the man I aspire to be, I have to do better. I have decided to commit myself to a mental wellness program to work on the parts of me that deeply need healing…

‘To Becky, you have been the light in my life, my strength, who has always shown me unconditional love. Instead of honoring that love every day, I have done the opposite, hurting you, and disrespecting the one person I love more than anything. I am so sorry and know I have to whatever it takes to earn back the trust and love you deserve,’ he said.

‘To my FC Dallas family, my fans, friends & family Thank you for your love and support. I will do my best to be my best.’ 

Lletget’s post follows cheating claims from an Instagram account by the name of @ja29poo last week.

The account claimed that Lletget cheated on Becky in February while at a club with his teammates, and said they had intimate video and photos which they couldn’t release.

The person also shared alleged audio recordings between them and Lletget.
