The St. Louis rapper was arrested in Washington on Oct. 4 when a woman called 911 in the early morning hours, saying he’d raped her on his tour bus.

In a statement, Glass alleged that Ethan Kath, the producer for Crystal Castles, repeatedly raped and abused her starting in 2006, when she was only 15.


Kath refuted the claims via a statement through his attorney, saying, “Her story is pure fiction and I am consulting my lawyers as to my legal options.”
