PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — Shaun White has dismissed the sexual assault allegations made against him in a 2016 lawsuit as "gossip."

White won his third Olympic gold medal Wednesday in the men's halfpipe, then was criticized on social media and questioned in a press conference about allegations made in a lawsuit by a former drummer in White's rock band.

The woman says White sexually harassed and refused to pay her. The lawsuit was settled last May.

White was asked in a media conference if the lawsuit might tarnish his reputation.

He says, "I'm here to talk about the Olympics, not gossip and stuff." He adds, "I don't think so."

Reporters attempted to follow up about the lawsuit, but the conference moderator shot them down. White rushed off stage as reporters questioned him about the allegations following the conference.
