Teen actress Millie Bobby Brown, the star of Netflix’s Stranger Things, is reportedly taking action against TikToker Hunter “Echo” Ecimovic after he alleged in his recent live stream to have participated in sexual acts with her.

“Instead of engaging in a public discourse with him through the press or on social media, we are taking action to ensure that he stops this behaviour once and for all,” the 17-year-old’s reps told TMZ.

Ecimovic’s live stream was reposted in part on YouTube, saying: “Everything I did was completely legal, and it was approved by everybody that I was with.”

The 20-year-old, who has more than 1.6 million followers on TikTok, claimed that Brown was the one who initiated the romance with him and further alluded to an idea that her parents weren’t opposed to it.

Responding to a comment on the stream that said, “Imagine being a grown adult and dating a kid,” he replied with: “I know, I groomed her.”

Ecimovic also claimed that he lived with Brown and her parents for eight months.

“How the f*** is there a lawsuit? Her mum and dad knew about everything,” he continued. Complex suggested that Ecimovic was addressing a rumoured lawsuit filed by Brown’s parents.

There was also a leaked photo (that has now been deleted due to Ecimovic’s Instagram page deletion), of Ecimovic appearing to give Brown a kiss on the cheek. It’s unknown when the picture was taken.

TMZ also states that law enforcement sources confirmed that there aren’t any open investigations against Ecimovic.

Taking to TikTok, Ecimovic decided to address the situation on his platform.

“It should have never happened in the first place; it was a stupid idea on my part,” he said.

He also added that he was getting “more and more drunk” in the two to three hours that he live-streamed.

‘I said stuff that shouldn’t have been said. I am sorry for doing that live stream; I should have ended it the moment it started getting bad,” he continued.

She is currently in a relationship with Jon Bon Jovi’s son Jake Bongiovi.
