therealdeal.com – He’s back in black, and may be back in court.
Leather-loving designer Peter Marino is once again facing a sexual harassment lawsuit from a former employer, who’s accusing him of making homophobic slurs and sexually suggestive comments.
Jonathan Michaud, a former senior textile specialist at Marino’s eponymous design firm, says Marino mocked him for being gay, subjected him to unwanted sexual advances and wore extreme attire at the office which exposed his private regions.
In the suit, filed Thursday in New York State Court, Michaud also accuses Marino of decorating the company’s offices with sexually explicit artwork and even offered to give Michaud a sex toy among other inappropriate comments.
