In 2019, the New York Post revealed emails between CK and Melngailis from 2012, in which she was "upset and freaked out" over him allegedly giving her an STD. “hey. I understand you’re upset," CK allegedly responded. "This kind of s–t is tough. I never swore that I was clean. I told you I may or may not have given this to you. I’m sorry if I did. If you gave it to me, it’s okay. We all share the current human bloodstream, which includes this kind of stuff. I should have worn a condom, you should have made me, we should have a lot of things. we are human."
