Something that Mrs. Éthier refuted on Sunday, according to her Mr. Dubé would have taken the steps alone.

It is also in this message that the columnist, who has been in a relationship for four years with the comedian, confessed to having also been a victim of him. 

“During this relationship, Fred Dubé sexually assaulted me. He threatened me physically, without ever hitting me. These people know when to stop the fist. I have experienced psychological, verbal and sexual violence. I have lost count of the humiliations he has subjected me to, in both the private and public spheres. The betrayals. He also threatened me, once, to kill us both”, she indicated on Facebook.
