CONTENT WARNING: The following article discusses allegations of rape and sexual assault
Alice Glass has spoken out against Crystal Castles’ Ethan Kath for the first time since he filed a defamation lawsuit against her in November.
Now, Glass broken her silence saying that she believes that the lawsuit was handed to her to intimidate her.
In an interview with Daily Beast, she said that his motivation was to, “make my life harder for the next however many months,” and, “to intimidate all of these women that probably don’t have access to a lawyer and so they’d be too scared to speak out if they think they’ll be sued for hundreds of thousands of dollars.”
“I refuse to be intimidated by him,” she further said.
“Things didn’t work out the way he thought they would, which would be me just cowering and crying in a little ball. He doesn’t know me anymore and I’m not a little girl anymore.”
Glass has been releasing music through all of this. She released her self-titled EP last year and dropped a new single ‘Cease And Desist’ earlier this year.
