Guess Is Formally Investigating Paul Marciano For Allegations Of Sexual Misconduct

FILE Model and actress Kate Upton

Kate Upton is sharing more about what inspired her to go public with details of Guess co-founder Paul Marciano's alleged sexual misconduct.

Supermodel Kate Upton chose to take part in the #MeToo movement when she wrecked Paul Marciano's image in a social media post.

"I think what she's doing is wonderful and I think that being able to speak out and speak up is important", Baldwin added.

The model told Time that the harassment began when she was just 18 years old, the age she was starting her professional modeling career.

"Despite doing everything I could physically do to avoid his touch throughout the meeting, he continued to touch me in a very dominating and aggressive way, grabbing my thighs, my arms to pull me closer, my shoulders to pull me closer, my neck, my breasts, and smelling me".

"I have never been alone with Kate Upton", he said.

"I remember not wanting to say 'Get off of me, ' " Upton recounted, "because I didn't want to open my mouth to say anything because I didn't want him to be able to put his tongue in my mouth".

Guess declined to provide further comment to BuzzFeed News.

She also revealed that he bragged about being the man responsible for making Kate Upton famous, and she alleges that he claimed to have slept with Upton.

Later, in the evening she visited Army Hospital, Satwari and enquired about the condition of those injured in the attack. Earlier in the day, a group of three-to-five heavily armed terrorists stormed the Sunjwan Army camp.

She said his behavior happened in the prescence of otehrs, includign photographer Yu Tsai, who corborated her story with ABC News.

Shannon, 28, told The Blast that Marciano first approached her to model for him in late 2012 and that he set up a test shoot for her.

On GMA, Roberts said Marciano denied Upton's claims, deeming them "preposterous". "Nor would I ever refer to a Guess model in such a derogatory manner", he stated.

"I am told that she has been working with others for some time to defame me and will claim that I groped her among other things".

"I have pledged to Guess and its Board of Directors my full support and cooperation with a fair and impartial investigation", he continued.

The newlywed tells TIME she's exhausted of having to "laugh off" the misconduct of fashion bosses and photographers in the industry: "I'm sick of being expected to laugh off these aggressive advances and accept the power imbalances that exist", she rages. "It used to work in the past but that's not the case anymore".

She stopped communicating with him past year. "Mr. Marciano denied the allegation at that time, and a contemporaneous investigation conducted in 2009 by the Company and outside counsel did not corroborate the plaintiff's claims", the statement read.

"Honestly, I don't really need his validation for what happened", she said.

She said Hadid "date-raped" her at an apartment, according to the post. "So that victims not only have to live through this and relive it again when they come out with their story".
