Keith Urban has broken his silence over the alleged rape that took place at his concert last weekend.

The 46-year-old posted a statement on his website Thursday—saying he was "horrified" by what allegedly happened, and sending "hearts and prayers" to those affected.

"My team and I were horrified to learn of the events reported in Boston this past weekend and our hearts and prayers go out to all those affected," Urban wrote. "This type of behavior stands in stark contrast to the spirit of our shows."

Meanwhile, cops continue to investigate the alleged sexual assault. 18-year-old Sean Murphy was arrested Saturday night after concert goers claimed they witnessed him raping a 17-year-old girl on the lawn of the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, about 30 miles from Boston. Murphy has pleaded not guilty to rape charges, claiming sex was consensual.

In addition to the alleged sexual assault, 46 people were treated for alcohol related illnesses at the concert and of those, 22 were taken to hospital.
