British actress Millie Bobby Brown on Tuesday denied having a sexual relationship with a Los Angeles-based TikTok star, after he made a series of explicit claims about the 17-year-old and said he ‘groomed’ her.
Hunter ‘Echo’ Ecimovic, 21, hosted an Instagram Live on Monday and made a series of wild and salacious claims about the actress.
The pair had been photographed together in 2020, embracing and looking happy.
Ecimovic claimed in his Instagram that he lived with Brown, then 16, and her parents for eight months and that he ‘thought her mum and dad knew about everything.’
A representative for Brown, star of Stranger Things, star told DailyMail.com on Tuesday that he was not telling the truth.
‘Mr Ecimovic’s remarks on social media are not only dishonest, but also are irresponsible, offensive and hateful,’ the spokesperson said.

A representative for the Stranger Things star, 17, said that Ecimovic is not only being ‘untruthful,’ but also ‘irresponsible, offensive and hateful’ and that they are ‘taking action to ensure he stops this behavior once and for all’
‘Instead of engaging in a public discourse with him through the press or on social media, we are taking action to ensure that he stops this behavior once and for all.’
The age of consent in California, where Ecimovic is based, is 18.
Brown is a British citizen, where the age of consent is 16. She also owns a home in Atlanta, Georgia, where the age of consent is also 16.
Brown has this summer been dating Jake Bongiovi, the 19-year-old son of Jon Bon Jovi, who is currently studying at Syracuse University.
She was previously linked to David and Victoria Beckham’s son Romeo, 18.
Fans of the actress were angered by Ecimovic’s comments on Monday, and flooded the comment section with questions and criticism.
Ecimovic during the Instagram Live doubled down, and refused to say sorry for his lewd claims about their sex life.

‘You guys don’t know anything. You guys are just following after one person saying one thing, like, everybody hates him so that everyone’s going to hate me,’ he said.
‘You guys just follow each other like a big duck followed by little ducks. Whatever the top thing is, you just follow up.
‘You guys don’t know the story of anything, and I will never apologize. I hope you know that.’
Ecimovic, shirtless and with his friends chuckling from behind him, continued: ‘I have nothing to apologize for, so make that clear. I have zero things to apologize for. You guys do not know a single thing at all.’
After Ecimovic ended his Instagram Live, footage was screen-grabbed and shared across social media.
In response, supporters of Brown created their own social media accounts to ‘expose’ Ecimovic.
Ecimovic’s Instagram is currently unavailable.
