I don't think that's true, at least not in the case of Ralph. Remember after dropping the sex tape, he immediately began loudly denying it by claiming he had been hacked both to Faith and in public. My best guess is that since May is involved, who I suspect who is a bit more shrewd than Ralph, she has advised him to shut his fucking gob. Not talking about a criminal accusation is universally a good idea.I never saw any. I think that speaks more to it being true. They didn't want to acknowledge it in a written form. If it wasn't true, I think they would have been denying it instead of ignoring it. People naturally jump to deny untrue things but may try to ignore statements that are true instead of admitting to it.
If I recall correctly, didn't Faith at some point allege that she had pictures of her bruised neck where Ralph choked her? Not that it really matters in the grand scheme of things; it's almost certain that Ralph will never be prosecuted for a DV charge that has become this stale, especially because it's Faith making the accusation. I think anyone who takes Faith's claims about Ralph choking her with a grain of salt has a good reason to do so, given Faith's previous behavior.
