You Won’t Believe Who’s Denying Luke Hemmings’ Group Sex Claims
It was the Rolling Stone interview heard ’round the world (or, at least among the #5SOSFam). While it should be listed as a crowning achievement that a group of guys in their late teens/early twenties graced the cover of the renowned music magazine, the members of 5 Seconds of Summer are actually being dragged through the mud for their quotes; Luke Hemmings, in particular.
According to the glossy publication, the 19-year-old Australian musician said, “When you put four young dudes on a tour bus, playing theaters, then arenas, you’re going to have sex with a lot of girls, I guess… We had a good time.”
When asked about if his “good times” consisted of multiple girls in one night, he allegedly said, “I feel like I shouldn’t say… You could say the possibility of that is high.” What about at the same time? He repeated, “The possibility is high.” And with a supposed devilish grin on his face, he added, “The possibilities are endless.”
Fans were, obviously, pissed about the sexist remarks. And, in one of his first tweets since the quotes made their rounds on the Internet, Luke didn’t even deny the claims, further fueling the fire:

His girlfriend, Arzaylea, who leaked private bedroom pictures of the blond “She’s Kinda Hot” singer and herself, went on a long Twitter rant, saying that the media twists things around, but like… no one wants to think about their boyfriend having sex with other females, let alone a bunch of them all at once, so she’s not exactly credible.
Don’t worry, though — Luke’s dad, Andy Hemmings, is on the case, also denying the accusations:
You're spot on , he never would talk like that. Ever. No drama if you actually know Luke https://t.co/swT8SczGQe

Kinda cringe-worthy when you think about it: Would you want your parents to defend you in an instance such as this? Plus, not to make dear ol’ Dad feel bad, but fame can, in fact, change a person. Just sayin’.
Luke’s fellow 5SOS member, Michael Clifford, is also in hot water for a supposedly misconstrued quote as well. Rolling Stone reports that he said, “I think [Justin Bieber hates us,” adding, “I probably shouldn’t say this, but he had his own album on loop for, like, two or three hours” at his American Music Awards after-party.
Justin refuted the story, saying, “sorry guy. Don’t hate you. Don’t even know u. And are u sure u came to our party because my album wasn’t on loop? Strange.”
“wish u the best. Don’t use my name for headlines. U are already on the cover. U don’t need it. Just be honest. Big hugs buds…And now can we call move on. No hate all love. Happy to make it clear. Happy times,” he concluded.
Justin has since deleted those messages on Twitter, but Michael’s response is still available:
@justinbieber done nothing but praise ur album; no idea why that's even in the article. big fan since the start man, take care
