Either he actually did rape his ex girlfriend

or

his ex girlfriend regretted having sex is trying to call it rape.

I’m leaning towards the second one in this situation. Completely gut feeling, no evidence to support it besides the way he says “things aren’t always what they seem”, and the fact that I’ve been hearing similar stories a lot lately.
