The father of the model blamed by British-born killer Elliot Rodger for his murder spree says she is “devastated” by his bizarre claims – and can barely even remember him.
Rodger, 22, branded Monette Moio an “evil b****” and claimed in his 141-page manifesto of hate that she “teased and ridiculed” him after they met at school.
He claimed it sparked his hatred of women and the deaths of his three flatmates and three students in a horror attack in Santa Barbara on Friday.
But Monette’s father, Hollywood stuntman John Moio, branded the suggestion “ridiculous”, reports Asian Town.
He said: “She was 10 years old for God’s sake – she can barely remember the guy. He’s a sociopath. She hasn’t seen him since school.
“She is devastated. She’s being implicated in this terrible tragedy for something she hasn’t done and can’t even remember.”
He rejected Rodger’s claims that Monette had teased him, saying: “How can a girl of 10 bully a 12-year-old boy? Maybe the girls she hung around with did poke fun at him, but they were kids.”
Rodger's had a secret crush on Monette Moio (left) more than 10 years ago In his murder manifesto, titled My Twisted World, Rodger said his resentment of women started with Monette.
He wrote: “The way I was treated by girls at this time, especially by that evil b****, sparked an intense fear of girls.
“The funny part of this is that I had a secret crush on Monette. She was the first girl I ever had a crush on, and I never admitted it to anyone.”
