In October, Alice Glass accused her former Crystal Castles bandmate Ethan Kath of sexual assault and nearly a decade of physical and emotional abuse. Crystal Castles canceled their remaining tour dates, and Kath sued Glass for defamation (resulting in some schmuck pretending to be a fan and serving Glass a court summons after one of her shows). According to a new report from The Daily Beast, the Toronto Police Department has confirmed that Kath is under investigation for alleged sex crimes:
“At this point we are able to confirm that there is an investigation. However, because of the nature of the investigation, and for the privacy of the alleged victims, there isn’t anything else that we can say pertaining to it.”
However, The Daily Beast spoke to a “source with knowledge of the investigation” who claims it involves complaints from multiple women. One of whom spoke to The Daily Beast anonymously, to not impede the investigation, and says that she met Kath online when she was 15. Their sexual relationship allegedly began when she was 16. “I want this guy’s insane horrible mistreatment of underage girls to be out in the open for everyone to know and to protect themselves,” she said.
