KNOCKED LOOSE Drummer Addresses Allegations Made Against Him Online


Knocked Loose drummer Kevin Kaine is standing up to anonymous allegations made against him on Reddit. According to the accuser, Kaine and themselves engaged in a consensual sexual relationship in 2021. The accuser claims that alcohol got involved, the sex was unprotected, and that they ultimately ended up with an STD. Kaine denied all claims and provided a photo of his health record.

“Hi, it’s been brought to my attention that a story about me is floating around Reddit and Twitter,” wrote Kaine in his post. “I would like to set things straight as this is not an experience that I had. An anonymous person claimed that we met at a show in 2021 and we subsequently had sex in a hotel room and they left pregnant and having contracted STDs.

“The first show we played in 2021 was in August. I was in a committed relationship starting in May of that year. I have never been unfaithful to her. There were no sexual partners other than her.

“This anonymous person also claimed that they spoke to my girlfriend at the time to let her know that she was cheated on. Coincidentally, my ex and I are very close, just spent the last two days together in Nashville. No one reached out and had a conversation with my ex girlfriend. That was confirmed by her.

“To wrap this up, I also have my personal medical results from a general checkup I had dating April of 2024. I do not have any sexually transmitted diseases. Im posting here for clarity.

“I absolutely hate that this has gotten to the point where I have to share my personal medical information with strangers on the internet. I feel deeply violated that an anonymous person has made up a story about me that I’m left to answer for. I hope this clears things up.”

The user who made the claims has since deleted their Reddit account. As for Knocked Loose, they’ll be out on the road with Slipknot this summer. Check out those dates right here. The accusations read as follows:

“I don’t know what’s going on with Reddit or why my account isn’t showing up I didn’t delete it’s just bugging out somehow. So to start, I am not looking to stir up drama or instigate anything or ruin Knocked Loose‘s image. I just want to warn other women, I dont want to engage or argue with anyone about what I know happened to me, and I am using this outlet to keep myself anonymous. Again, I have no issue with the rest of KL and was a big fan before but I feel sick knowing this could happen to someone else.

“I’ll try to keep this short as I am just not comfortable going into all the details. Basically, in 2021 I matched with Kevin Kaine on one of the dating apps, at first I thought maybe it was a fake account but we matched and met up. I had been a fan of KL for years and been to multiples shows/festivals and seen them. And I was interested in him at the time so we matched and talked for a bit and he got me guest listed into a show. I guess they had a day off after performing so they stayed at a hotel. When we met up I was really nervous, I’m not going to lie, he got us drinks and I drank way more than I can handle. He was friendly and everything was okay until we went back to the hotel.

“There we kept drinking and while he didn’t force me I felt like i needed to keep up, not saying thats his fault it was just the situation. We had intercourse and I consented in the beginning but he got too rough for me and I kept tapping him and trying to get him to stop when he had his hands around my neck, I felt like i lost consciouness and things were very in and out for me after that and I remember him finishing. I got sick and threw up in the hotel room, I gathered my stuff and called my mom to get me from the hotel. The sex was unprotected and I had not been with anyone else for probably 2 months before this and a few days later I was very uncomfortable, I had bleeding pus filled sores on my lower half, I went to a clinic and he gave me HSV2 and chlamydia.

“I have never had an STD before and was in a relationship with someone for over a year prior to this. I was in so much pain for weeks and it got worse and worse. The only way we talked was through the dating app and I felt like shit and knew it wouldn’t matter if I reached out,I doubt he’d see it, I’m sure at best he’d just deny having given me anything.”
