Crystal Castles’ Ethan Kath is under investigation by the Sex Crimes unit of the Toronto Police, according to The Daily Beast. Details are scant, but Police Constable Allyson Douglas-Cook told the publication, “At this point we are able to confirm that there is an investigation. However, because of the nature of the investigation, and for the privacy of the alleged victims, there isn’t anything else that we can say pertaining to it.” The Daily Beast also claims knowledge from a source of “complaints ‘from several women'” about Ethan Kath.

Back in October, former Crystal Castles singer Alice Glass accused Kath (real name Claudio Palmieri) of physical, sexual and mental abuse. Crystal Castles’ tour was canceled following the accusations, which Kath denied. Kath has since sued Glass for defamation of character, with Glass getting served a court summons by someone pretending to be a fan at her Chicago show in November. Whether the current investigation by Toronto authorities is about this or another case remains to be seen. Stay tuned.
