"I AM a good person. I don’t do anything illegal illegal or at least I don’t do illegal things that hurt people in front of me, if that makes sense," he wrote on his Squarespace website. "I've done drugs but I don’t steal. Not to say that anyone that’s ever stolen something is a bad person and far from it. Meaning I have my moments like everyone else.

"I was frustrated with the whole acting thing so I would take it out on weird things things like clothes," he continued.
