Controversy over Ghomeshi[edit]

In October 2014, DeCoutere joined seven anonymous women in publicly alleging sexualized violence by recently fired CBC Radio personality Jian Ghomeshi. Decoutere was the first alleged victim to publicly identify herself. Later, lawyer and author Reva Seth publicly accused Ghomeshi of sexual abuse.

DeCoutere alleges that in 2003 Ghomeshi assaulted her in his apartment after the two had a dinner date.[5] She claims that Ghomeshi, without warning or consent, choked her to the point where she could not breathe and then slapped her a few times across the face.[3][6] DeCoutere later made her allegations to police, along with two other women. As of October 31, 2014 Toronto Police are investigating the incidents.[7]
