Roiland, left, was accused of sexual assault and messaging young fans in a bombshell NBC News report published on Wednesday.

The report published on Wednesday was based on interviews with 11 women and nonbinary individuals who had communicated with Roiland via text, email, and social media between 2013 and 2022.

According to the outlet, nine of the individuals claimed that Roiland engaged them in sexual conversations while three of those alleged victims were only 16 years old at the time.

The shocking report was accompanied by evidence provided by Roiland’s alleged victims – including photos, videos, social media posts, emails, and receipts.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the new allegations made against Roiland this week came months after domestic violence charges were dropped against the Rick and Morty co-creator in March.

Roiland was previously accused of domestic battery and false imprisonment by another alleged victim earlier this year.

The previous charges involved allegations of battery and false imprisonment made by an individual only referred to as Jane Doe who was dating Roiland in January 2020 when the alleged incident occurred.

When approached for comment regarding the latest allegations against him, Roiland's lawyer – Andrew Brettler – reportedly directed the media to a previous statement posted on Roiland's Twitter account in March.

"I have always known that these claims were false – and I never had any doubt this day would come," Roiland tweeted at the time.

"I'm thankful that this case has been dismissed but, at the same time, I'm still deeply shaken by the horrible lies that were reported about me during this process,” he continued.
