TORONTO – “Trailer Park Boys” actress Lucy DeCoutere is fending off an onslaught from Jian Ghomeshi’s defence lawyer on a series of fawning correspondence she sent to the disgraced broadcaster after he allegedly assaulted her, including one that contained a raunchy photograph.
One of the emails, sent just hours after Ghomeshi allegedly choked and slapped her, shows DeCoutere using racy language to express her sexual desire for him and regret that she didn’t spend the night with him.
She has told Ghomeshi’s sexual assault trial that she doesn’t remember sending it.
