Natalie Mariduena defends David Dobrik as “a good person” after sexual assault scandal

Dexerto says “Mariduena holds close ties with Dobrik having grown up together and takes a leadership role within his company. She was asked about the accusations very early on in her appearance in the interview that was published on July 22.

Mariduena still describes Dobrik as her “bestie” said she’s “probably the closest person to David” and “know him the best out of anybody.” She described the allegations as “really sh**ty” and said, “it sucks when you see someone who’s actually a good person getting accused of really terrible things.”

When asked if she “stood behind him 100%,” she replied immediately saying “yeah he’s my best friend.” Later in the podcast, she described him as “just a normal average dude.””

In this episode, she continued to defend David saying “even the shit that went down, it was really about another dude. Another guy did something and David just happened to be there”.


When she was asked about whether it was hard on her, she replied, “of course, anyone who goes through something like that. It’s extremely difficult and there are millions of people saying terrible things about you.”
