Former Crystal Castles frontwoman Alice Glass has taken to Twitter to give an update on the developments of the defamation lawsuit filed against her.

Kath (real name Claudio Palmieri) filed a defamation lawsuit in response to Glass' open letter alleging a decade of sexual, physical, mental, and psychological abuse.

She has now taken to Twitter to express that her bandmate was denied the appeal.

As NME point out, is February a lengthy piece was published on The Daily Beast claiming further abuse by Palmieri, with interviews from a number of alleged victims and further details from Glass herself. Palmieri was recently revealed to be under investigation by the Toronto Police Force's Sex Crimes Unit.

Palmieri has denied all accusations multiple times. In a statement to TMZ last year, Palmieri said: "I can't support extortion, false claims, and accusations put forth after the band attained new success without her. False allegations take away voice from true victims and that's what saddens me most about all of this."

Glass revealed a new single "Cease And Desist" in January 2018. Check it out.
