Rande Gerber, the husband of supermodel Cindy Crawford, has been sued by two women for subjecting them to a sexually hostile work environment at his company, Gerber Entities.
According to the women, they complained to Gerber’s human resources department about the abusive behavior. After the company failed to take any actions, the two former employees decided to file the lawsuit.
Over the past few years, several well-known celebrities have been accused of bullying their employees. Last summer, actor Christian Bale went on a profanity-laced tirade during the filming of the movie “Terminator Salvation” after the movie’s director of photography accidently walked on the set.
“Am I gonna f—— rip your lights down in the middle of the scene? Then why the f— are you walking right through ‘Duh-duh-duh-duh-duh’ in the background,” Bale allegedly screamed. “What the f— is with you? What the f— don’t you understand?”
One of the most notorious bad boss celebrities is supermodel Naomi Campbell, whose hostile behavior has repeatedly made headlines. In January 2009, Campbell settled a lawsuit with a former maid who claimed that the supermodel hit her and called her racist names. In January 2007, Campbell pleaded guilty to a assaulting another former maid with a cell phone.
Naomi Campbell has been described by at least half a dozen former employees and personal assistants as being extremely abusive, repeatedly screaming at and humiliating her employees.
