Sinatraa has been suspended for 6 months from all Valorant esports events, Riot Games announced today.
This has come as a result of a three-month-long investigation that ended with no "definitive conclusion" to the case and therefore Sinatraa is only suspended, and not completely removed, at least until the ongoing criminal investigation concludes.
Following the statement of suspension, Sinatraa released a twit longer post, in which he addresses the situation and announces his next steps moving forward.
"I've spent the last 2 months reflecting on how I can be better as a person. I’ve been a pro player for basically all of my adult life and still have a lot to improve on. I’ve been reflecting a ton during the downtime and know how much I hurt Cleo emotionally and I’m truly sorry about it. I will learn from my mistakes and keep on trying to improve myself as a person," Won wrote in a statement, which shows a striking difference from his previous statements in regards to his ex-girlfriend.
When it comes to the suspension from the VCT and the statement from Riot Games, Sinatraa claims that he did want to provide the full audio and video clip he has promised, but now claims that he doesn't have the video, because he "honoured" Cleo's wish for him to delete that video, due to the private nature of it.
Sinatraa emphasizes that he still thinks the video is "a key part in the investigation" but says that he shouldn't have promised something he can't deliver personally.
Sinatraa has recently revealed that he plans to return to streaming "soon" and says that the remaining 4 months of the suspension will use to "develop a better set of interpersonal skills" and will do his best to "earn back the trust of this community."
