Bestselling author Nicholas Sparks has issued a statement in response to last week’s report on alleged discrimination at the school he helped found.

The Daily Beast cited numerous emails between Sparks and former headmaster Saul Benjamin, who’s seeking legal recourse against Sparks and the school’s other trustees, in its article.

Sparks tweeted a lengthy statement in response — while not commenting directly to the Daily Beast — that called the accusations false and declared that the school remains committed to welcoming students from all walks of life.

Sparks is best known for The Notebook and A Walk To Remember, both bestsellers that were turned into hit movies.
