HE’S JUST LIKE THE REST OF THEM: More Models Call Disgraced Fashion Photographer Bruce Weber A “Serial Sexual Predator” In New Suit
UNITED STATES — According to a recent article published in Page Six, “More models have joined the chorus of accusations against photographer Bruce Weber“.
The disgraced fashion photographer who has shot for Vogue and Abercrombie & Fitch — was sued by model Jason Boyce in December 2017, alleging sexual harassment and discrimination (see it here).
In January, 15 models spoke with the New York Times, describing “unnecessary nudity and coercive sexual behavior.”
Now, five more models, represented by Lisa Bloom, anonymously filed suit in the Southern District of New York Friday, claiming Weber is a “serial sexual predator” who “exploited his prominence and influence to manipulate men into submitting to his sexual advances.”
All of the victims describe a similar “modus operandi,” saying Weber would do a “breathing exercise” that would lead to him fondling their genitals.
Weber allegedly said things like, “Just relax and you’ll go far in this industry.”
Weber’s lawyer tells Page Six, “These new allegations are outrageous. Bruce Weber has never lured, recruited or forced anyone to do anything and has never inappropriately touched a model. This lawsuit is nothing more than a media-hungry lawyer’s attempt to extort Mr. Weber.”
