Jian Ghomeshi

Star reporter to release tell-all book about Ghomeshi

Toronto Star reporter Kevin Donovan has inked a deal to release a long-rumoured book about CBC host Jian Ghomeshi's public downfall last year. Jian Ghomeshi - Secret Life will dig into the former Q host's past and the circumstances surrounding his ouster from the broadcasting network, promising an in-depth look at who Ghomeshi was behind the scenes.

Ghomeshi is currently facing several criminal charges after six women came forward with accusations of violent physical and sexual assault. Before the story broke last October, Donovan and the Star had already long been researching accusations of Ghomeshi's alleged conduct with women. The upcoming book will feature interviews from "a number of women and former colleagues from Ghomeshi's past", according to a press release from the publishers.

The book, to be released in print by ECW Press and digitally by Kobo, is slated for a late June release.
