THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, with as many as 8 women coming out and telling their stories of how they were physically abused by Jian Ghomeshi, I wanted to come forward with my own information on how I first came to know and ultimately what I thought was “bond” with Mr. Ghomeshi. I don’t work in the media, but all I can and will say is that I was inside the studio where he did his radio show as I was visiting Toronto from British Columbia. We struck up a conversation and got along really well, which was difficult for me because anyone who knows me knows I am incredibly shy. He followed me on Twitter briefly so we could exchange DMs where we later exchanged numbers. He would always insist that I go to his place, but being the shy person I was it took me a good three months of us talking, just by phone or by text as I wasn’t a Toronto native anyway, until I felt fully comfortable in meeting up with him outside of his place of work the second time I travelled to Ontario. At first things were normal – we conversed like normal human beings. But without getting all TMI, I’ll just say that one thing led to another. I was completely taken aback by Jian’s aggressive stance in the bedroom, and he was violent on many occasions when we were “together.” Knowing what I know about him now and have read, it’s really scary, and I’m glad to have gotten away from that.
The greasy hair says it all.- nik
