TORONTO – Navigator, the public relations firm that had been representing Jian Ghomeshi, is no longer advising the former CBC radio host.

The firm confirmed to Global News Thursday afternoon that due to a change of “circumstances” they are “no longer able to continue.”

The statement comes after Canadian actor Lucy DeCoutere, author Reva Seth, and seven other women accused Ghomeshi of assaulting them sexually and physically.

None of the women have filed a complaint with the police.

His publicist, Rock-it Promotions, announced on Twitter Thursday afternoon they were dropping Ghomeshi as well.

Ghomeshi has not responded to repeated calls for comment from Global News but did release a short statement on Facebook Thursday morning saying he would “meet the allegations directly.”
