The news comes on the same day that Ghomeshi was finally disinvited from a book tour appearance set to take place in Toronto next month, and in the wake of numerous new allegations about what the CBC and the Toronto media community did or didn't know about his conduct.
"thank you to everyone for sharing forward all of the articles and content, you've helped me. the story is incredibly, incredibly sad. given everything i've learned, and especially given how upsetting it would be to so many, jian will not be coming to the show in toronto."
The evening started out fine. We had a drink, we smoked some pot and we hung out chatting. A while later we started kissing. Suddenly, it was like he became a different person. He was super angry, almost frenzied and disassociated.
I distinctly remember the jarring sense of suddenly being abruptly shaken out of my reverie. I remember thinking "what the fuck is going on here? What's wrong with him?" Jian had his hands around my throat, had pulled down my pants and was aggressively and violently digitally penetrating me. When it was over, I got up and it was clear I was really angry. My sexual interactions until then had always been consensual, enjoyable and fun.
In response to numerous media requests, Navigator confirms it does not advise Jian Ghomeshi. Regrettably, the circumstances of our engagement have changed and we are no longer able to continue. No further comment will be issued.
UPDATE: Ghomeshi's long-standing PR firm, Toronto-based rockit-promotions has also just dropped Ghomeshi, tweeting: Going forward, rock-it promotions will no longer be representing Jian Ghomeshi. We won't be responding to or receiving media requests.
