Sinatraa’s Ex-Girlfriend Says She Didn’t Drop Charges
Sinatraa’s former girlfriend Cleo “cle0h” Hernandez stated that she didn’t drop the charges against the former Valorant pro. In March 2021, Cleo accused Jay “Sinatraa” Won of sexual abuse, which began an investigation by Riot Games. Then in May 2021, Sinatraa was suspended for six months for ultimately being uncooperative during the investigation around the charges brought by his ex-girlfriend. The six-month ban is over, and it’s the talk of the scene. Cleo has since stated that she didn’t drop the charges, which some have read as a conflict. Back in April, a deleted tweet said she didn’t pursue the investigation anymore.
Could The Investigation Re-Open?
All that means is Cleo chose not to pursue the investigation further. Our own Jake Lucky originally posted a tweet reading “There will be no further investigation for Sinatraa,” but he was since given a corrected statement:
“His accuser originally posted that she will not be pursuing the investigation, I have now been corrected in saying that she can re-open this investigation through Riot Games at any point, but is choosing not to do so for now.”
On September 10th, the ban officially ended, and according to rumor, there are teams interested in Sinatraa again. In response to the ban ending, Cleo made a simple tweet, reading “didn’t drop the charges btw LOL,” which was picked up by a friend of Sinatraa, Dafran:
“Sinatraa is no longer banned and alot of teams are interested in him. Cle0h dropped the charges. I am incredibly dissapointed by all the streamers/organizations who immediatly judged him as guilty. We will never know what happend, its annoying as fuck but nothing was proven”
Cleo’s response was to say Dafran is “off his rocker,” so the real question now, is if the former girlfriend of Sinatraa, Cleo didn’t drop the charges, what’s actually going to happen now? It’s entirely likely that she is able to open the case again later if that’s what she wishes. When the original charges were filed, it was pretty clear that Cleo was going through a lot of trauma, and wasn’t in the right frame of mind to pursue the investigation.
There’s no telling if Sinatraa is actually going to be picked up by another team, or if that’s just hearsay. According to Cleo though, the charges haven’t been dropped, so we’ll just have to see where this goes next. One of the problems seems to be in this investigation that Sinatraa didn’t cooperate initially, which feels like nothing was actually cleared or truly finalized. That could be why the charges were never dropped, but nothing is being pursued right now. There’s truly no telling; it could still be ongoing behind the scenes. We will keep you updated as this story develops.
