Back in 2014 she motived her decision to leave Crystal Castles saying her self-expression lacked of “sincerity, honesty and empathy for other” within the band.
These reasons have been explained in her new shocking statement in which she accuses Ethan of rape and several sexual abuses. “The first time he took advantage of me was when I was around 15. He was 10 years older than me. I came to in the back of his car extremely intoxicated (from drinks he had given me that night). We didn’t talk for months after that.”
The statement ends:
Leaving Crystal Castles was the single most difficult decision I’ve ever made—that band was everything to me. My music, my performances and my fans were all I had in the world. I gave that up and started over not because I wanted to but because I had to. As difficult as it was, I knew that leaving was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It has taken me years to recover from enduring almost a decade of abuse, manipulation and psychological control. I am still recovering.
