Ethan Kath has now filed a lawsuit against Alice Glass, claiming he suffered "emotional distress" following the statement.
Issuing a note to Pitchfork, Ethan Kath called his former band mate's actions a "dastardly plan" to "ruin his good name and reputation in the industry, destroy Crystal Castles… and in turn boost her own career."
The musician claims he "fully supported" Glass when she left left Crystal Castles, saying this was an effort to “handle her mental heath issues and substance abuse issues."
Ethan Kath adds: "I will continue to support her quest to wellness but I can’t support extortion, false claims, and accusations put forth after the band attained new success without her."
