Dallas Austin has said sorry to Joss Stone (and Christina Aguilera) for what he said about them online. He hasn't, however, retracted the comments:
"The comment I made... were purely an act of retaliation not of malice or cruel intent...I sincerely apologise as this is not my character nor should I have let anyon'e actions push me to this limit."
So, he's sorry for saying Aggie and Stone sleep with the people they're meant to be working with, but for context and not content. Glad that's been cleared up.
