American Apparel CEO Dov Charney targeted in new sexual harassment lawsuit

Kimbra Lo, a 19-year-old former sales associate at American Apparel, has accused the company’s CEO of subjecting her to sexual harassment in December at his house in Los Angeles.

Lo claims that Charney invited her to his home to discuss rehiring her as a model and photographer.  Lo had previously worked at an American Apparel store in New York.

According to the New York Times, “Ms. Lo claimed that Mr. Charney, wrapped in a towel, invited her to his bedroom to talk about a job. Once there, she said he undressed her and tried to have sex. Ms. Lo said she sought to resist but was afraid, and that he tried to take photographs.”

The complaint names three other women, Alyssa Ferguson, Marissa Wilson and Tesa Lubans-Dehaven, who have allegedly filed complaints against Charney.

Charney has been accused of sexual harassment in a separate lawsuit filed by another American Apparel employee earlier this month, and four other sexual harassment lawsuits filed against Charney since the mid-2000′s have been settled or dismissed.
