It’s also important not to look to someone’s partner for said partner’s behavior. According to the CBC, Win Butler’s wife and bandmate, Régine Chassagne, released a statement regarding the accusations.
“I know what is in his heart, and I know he has never, and would never, touch a woman without her consent and I am certain he never did,” she said. “He has lost his way and he has found his way back. I love him and love the life we have created together.”
At the end of the day, Win Butler needs to hold himself accountable.
