Reva Seth, an attorney and author, has come forward as the second publicly identified woman to accuse former CBC broadcaster Jian Ghomeshi of physical abuse in the context of rough BDSM sex a la "Fifty Shades of Grey."

Ghomeshi was fired from CBC last weekend after the company claimed it had learned of information that "precludes" it from continuing a professional relationship with the broadcaster, according to The Toronto Sun.

The 47-year-old has brushed off the allegations as a smear campaign concocted by jilted ex-flames, and has even vowed to file a $50 million wrongful termination lawsuit.

"Let me be the first to say that my tastes in the bedroom may not be palatable to some folks," he said in a Facebook post earlier this week. "They may be strange, enticing, weird, normal, or outright offensive to others . . . But that is my private life . . . And no one, and certainly no employer, should have dominion over what people do consensually in their private life."

A woman named Lucy DeCoutere came forward Thursday and detailed her alleged experience with Ghomeshi and now Seth is doing the same in a first-person post on The Huffington Post.

According to Seth, she first met Ghomeshi in 2002 when she was 26. They had "fooled around" a few times and dated casually, she wrote, but everything changed one night at Ghomeshi's house.

"Suddenly, it was like he became a different person," she wrote for The Huffington Post. "He was super angry, almost frenzied, and disassociated . . . Jian had his hands around my throat, had pulled down my pants and was aggressively and violently penetrating me with his fingers. When it was over, I got up and it was clear I was really angry. My sexual interactions until then had always been consensual, enjoyable, and fun."

"I remember he gave me some weird lines about how he couldn't tell if I was actually attracted to him or not, and somehow this was meant to explain his behavior. I called a cab and I left right away."

Seth admitted she did nothing about the incident, but said it was because she didn’t know what there was to do.

"I hadn't been raped. I had no interest in seeing him again or engaging the police in my life," she wrote. "I just wanted to continue on with my life as it was. And even if I had wanted to do something, as a lawyer, I'm well aware that the scenario was just a 'he said/she said' situation."
