“I never respond to allegations but when it’s comes to my son I gotta speak,” Holmes wrote. “You have to be goofy as hell to believe that about heart BEATS for my son i live this very life to see him happy and could never raise a hand to harm him EVER.”

The Kings are currently monitoring the situation and released a statement regarding the recent allegations.
