Alice Glass says she "won in court" and the defamation lawsuit against her has been dismissed

23 February 2018, 18:22 | Written by The Line of Best Fit

Alice Glass has said that the defamation lawsuit against her, filed by former Crystal Castles bandmate Ethan Kath, has been "dismissed".

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.

As NME point out, earlier this month 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 recently shared new single "Cease And Desist". Check it out.
