Controversy and legal matters
Though he is known for his funny attitude, many people do not support him or his vines due to the fact that he was charged with raping his girlfriend, though he insists that he did not.
In October 2013, Lepore allegedly raped his then-girlfriend Jessi "Smiles" Vazquez. The incident in question was when Vazquez was in Los Angeles recovering from a concussion. Vazquez stated that Lepore came over to help while she was recovering and once asleep, Lepore raped her. Charges were filed in January 2014; Lepore, who pleaded not guilty to the charge, was released on $100,000 bail. In February 2014, Lepore took a plea deal in the case, the rape charges were dropped and Lepore pled guilty to felony assault.
In February 2015, Lepore's felony assault charges were reduced to a misdemeanor.
Curtis has collaborated with many other viners such as KingBach, Christian Delgrasso, etc.
