Apa detailed the incident on Thursday, July 30. “I split my head yesterday,” he explained in his Instagram story in videos with the wound. “I don’t know if you can see that, but I have two stitches there – metal stitches.”

Earlier this month, the New Zealand resident got a ‘metal shard’ in his eye, which he had to remove himself. He almost refused to take it out in one Instagram video on July 19. “I’m trying not to do that,” he said, using a Q-tip. “I’m not trying to do this right now.”

Disney Channel’s alum continued, “False accusations wreak havoc on victims of actual sexual assault. Besides, I would never try to silence anyone. I encourage people to look at the accusations for themselves, because the detailed events were not actually true. This seems to be the latest statement in a series of incidents that my castmates and I wanted to unfounded. ‘
