"Here's how I knew I didn't wanna be married. This kept happening. I didn't realize then, but I realize now, all right? It's very symbolic. You know when you live with someone and walk into a room, and they're in the room, and it ends up scaring the shit out of you, right? Though it's the one thing that should be in that room, 'cause it's their room, too, you're not thinking, you're doing something else. That kept happening, okay?"

In September 2020, reports emerged that when actress Megan Drust agreed to give D'Elia a ride home from a West Hollywood restaurant in 2011, he unzipped his pants in her car and asked Drust to touch him. When she refused, he allegedly began pleasuring himself. Drust allegedly got out of the vehicle and told D'Elia, "You're defiling my car."
"constructed a manipulative, controlling, and abusive dynamic in which he demanded Ms Doe provide him sexually explicit images of herself over the internet, directed her what specific sexual poses and acts she should perform for him, and psychologically punished her when she refused."
Chris D'Elia's response to the accusations
D'Elia addressed the allegations in a YouTube video in February 2021:
"I know I have said and done things that might have offended people during my career, but I have never knowingly pursued any underage women at any point. I have never met or exchanged any inappropriate photos with the people who have tweeted about me."
