The four included three women who said their sexual relationships with Butler were “inappropriate given their age, power dynamics, and the gaps in the circumstances that ensued,” and Butler’s 2015 arrest at his Montreal apartment. A fourth woman said she had sexually assaulted him.

In a statement to Pitchfork, Butler admitted to having had sexual relations with them but strongly denied any non-consensual contact. It was very revisionist, and frankly, it would be wrong for anyone to suggest otherwise,” the website quotes Butler as saying.

Nonetheless, Butler apologized to “people I’ve hurt with my actions,” referring to mental health issues and childhood abuse.

A representative for Butler did not immediately respond to a request for comment by the Montreal Gazette on Saturday.
