Husband of model Crawford facing lawsuit

  |   May 2, 2009 at 1:26 PM
SAN DIEGO, May 2 (UPI) -- Rande Gerber, husband of model Cindy Crawford, sexually harassed two female employees at a San Diego business he owns, the women allege in a lawsuit.

Shelly Scott and Gillian Walker allege in their suit filed in San Diego Count Superior Court in March that they both endured sexual harassment while working at the Gerber Group's Moonstone Lounge, TMZ.com reported Friday.

The women allege they lost their waitress jobs after refusing the sexual advances of staff members, including Gerber.

One of the women alleges Gerber attempted to kiss her and reach under her dress on one occasion in 2008, E! Online said.

A representative for Gerber dismissed the women's allegations.

"These allegations were previously investigated and shown to be baseless. This lawsuit has no merit," the unidentified representative said.
