Rande Gerber, the business mogul husband of Cindy Crawford, is being sued for sexual harassment by two women who used to work for him.
A lawsuit was filed in March in San Diego County Superior Court, Usmagazine.com confirms, by a pair of former waitresses. According to TMZ.com, which first broke the news, the women claimed they were fired from a restaurant owned by Gerber's company for refusing to give in to the advances of Gerber and other managers where they worked.
On one occasion in 2008, while working at the Moonstone Lounge in San Diego, one of the women claims the supermodel's husband attempted to kiss her three times during the night, then "put his hand up [her] dress in between her legs in an attempt to fondle her crotch," TMZ reports.
The women are reportedly suing for unspecified damages.
"These allegations were previously investigated and shown to be baseless," a Gerber Group spokesperson told Us in a statement Friday. "This lawsuit has no merit."
Gerber, 47, owns the Midnight Oil chain of bars and lounges. He and Crawford, who have been married for 11 years, have two children, Presley, 9, and Kaia, 7.
