Chris Hardwick Faces Allegations of Abusing His Ex-Girlfriend Chloe Dykstra!
Dykstra published a lengthy essay on Medium on Thursday, alleging that she was subjected to sexual assault and controlling behavior over the course of a three-year relationship. She did not name Hardwick, but offered sufficient details that he was quickly identified.
Our relationship started out poorly. Within 2 weeks, rules were quickly established. Some of these included:
- I “should not want to go somewhere at night”. My nights were expected to be reserved for him, as he had a busy schedule. This alienated me from my friends.
- I was to not have close male friends unless we worked together. All photos of male friends were to be removed from my apartment. This was heartbreaking for me, as my best friend happened to be male.
- As he was sober, I was not to drink alcohol. Before we began dating he said, “I noticed you have a glass of wine with dinner. That’s going to stop.”
