Actress Lucy DeCoutere of the Canadian TV show Trailer Park Boys has come forth and said that CBC host Jian Ghomeshi of the daily arts radio show, Q, physically attacked her during a date in 2003. After meeting at a television festival, she visited him in Toronto, went out on a date and then went back to Ghomeshi’s home, where he allegedly became violent.
DeCoutere’s allegations come after seven, similar accusations from women who did not want to be named. DeCoutere said she had no physical marks on her body and did not report the incident to the police, partially because she felt there were too many holes in her story. Ghomeshi has publicly denied the accusations, calling them lies. CBC fired Ghomeshi on October 26.
