Footage of Austin saying the singers slept with producers in exchange for songs was posted on YouTube.com, but was later taken down.
Yesterday (March 20) Austin issued a statement apologising for his outburst.
“My statement about Christina Aguilera and Joss Stone was a reaction to an incident I care not to discuss in any forum and while I may have felt justified, I do own an apology to Christina,Joss and their families,” he wrote.
“The comment I made… were purely an act of retaliation not of malice or cruel intent…I sincerely apologise as this is not my character nor should I have let anyon’e actions push me to this limit.”
Meanwhile Aguilera’s representative Cindy Guagenti said: “She’s not commenting on such ridiculous statements, and we are consulting a lawyer to explore her options.”
Stone has yet to respond, reports Access Atlanta.
