Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler has been accused of sexual misconduct by a fifth person, a woman who claims their three-year on-and-off relationship was anabusive dynamic” e “ultimately dehumanizing.

The woman’s allegations were published by Forcone, which in August reported three claims of inappropriate sexual misconduct and one accusation of sexual assault against Butler, which he denied.

La donna, who used the pseudonym Sabina, told the outlet that she and the Canadian rocker, 42, had a three-year sexual relationship that wasemotionally manipulative.

Sabina said she met Butler in 2015, quando lei era 22 and newly divorced after leaving astrict religious group.Their first meeting was at the Montreal café where Sabina worked, and they soon struck up a friendship that eventually turned sexual.

“Generalmente, it was an abusive dynamic,” lei disse. “It was really aggressive and I felt like I just had to do what he said. I was not really comfortable with some of the things he was asking me to do, but doing them anyway. And that is ultimately dehumanizing.

Sabina alleged that Butler once sent her an unsolicited photo of himself masturbating, which she claimedwas crossing a line,” and that she felt as though there was a power imbalance in their relationship. She said that she did not ever explicitly turn down his advances, and thinks he would characterize their relations as consensual.

A rep for Butler did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

When the first accusations were published in August, Butler admitted to havingconsensual relationshipsoutside of his marriage to bandmate Régine Chassagne, con cui si è sposato 2003. The two share a 9-year-old son.

I have never touched a woman against her will, and any implication that I have is simply false. I vehemently deny any suggestion that I forced myself on a woman or demanded sexual favors. That simply, and unequivocally, never happened,” Egli ha detto, in parte, in a statement to Pitchfork through crisis publicist expert Risa Heller. “While these relationships were all consensual, I am very sorry to anyone who I have hurt with my behavior. Life is filled with tremendous pain and error, and I never want to be part of causing someone else’s pain.

Chassagne also released a statement in support of her husband, scrivere: “I know what is in his heart, and I know he has never, and would never, touch a woman without her consent and I am certain he never did.

Alla luce delle accuse, several radio stations in Canada pulled the band’s music from their rotation, and Feist dropped out as the opening act of the band’s 2022 European tour.

Arcade Fire’s album WE was nominated for best alternative album at the 2023 Grammy Awards all'inizio di questo mese.
