In the documentary Jagged, which makes its debut today at the Toronto International Film Festival, Morissette makes multiple allegations of statutory rape. In a statement released hours before the premiere, Morissette said she "agreed to participate" in a film celebrating the 25th anniversary of her album Jagged Little Pill and was interviewed by director Alison Klayman during "a very vulnerable time" while in the midst of what she says was a third postpartum depression during lockdown. "I was lulled into a false sense of security and their salacious agenda became apparent immediately upon my seeing the first cut of the film," Morissette explained in her statement. "This is when I knew our visions were in fact painfully diverged. This was not the story I agreed to tell. I sit here now experiencing the full impact of having trusted someone who did not warrant being trusted."
