Model Heidi Mount and her husband Shawn have told of their relief after allegations he raped a model during London Fashion Week were dropped.
The hairstylist was arrested on suspicion of a serious sexual assault in September after an unnamed catwalk model, 24, claimed she was attacked at a hotel in the U.K. capital.

New York-based Mount was not charged and was released on bail pending further inquiries – but the investigation has since been dropped.

He tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, “I am so relieved that this is over. I have always maintained my innocence.”

And Chanel model Heidi says she is standing by her man, adding: “We are still together. Nothing about these false accusations has changed our relationship.”

A Scotland Yard spokeswoman confirmed to WENN that Mount is no longer under investigation.
