Maino is currently being sought out by the NYPD for questioning, after an adult film star accused him of assaulting her inside of his truck after they partied at Griffin on Monday night with Drake, Ashanti, JR Smith and more. According to the police report filed by the porn star, Mellanie Monroe, “he started punching her and fled,” but I spoke directly to Maino and her story has quite a few holes in it.
Maino explains he met Mellanie about a year and a half ago on Twitter, and they exchanged phone numbers at the time. Though they’ve briefly text messaged since then, they hadn’t actually met until the party on Monday night. Prior to meeting and even that night, what was supposed to transpire between them was always quite clear – nothing more, nothing less. While in the club, both Maino and Mellanie were on the same page, made evident from what she was saying in text messages to him, and after the party, the “after-party” was supposed to be good to go. It wasn’t the same story once they got into their awaiting SUV, however.
