Canadian fashion mogul investigated for sex abuse claims

Feb 27, 2020 12:08 IST

Federal authorities raided the Manhattan headquarters of Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard on Tuesday evening, just days after a class-action lawsuit accused the designer of sexual abuse. The lawsuit alleges Nygard enticed women with cash and modeling opportunities and then sexually assaulted them at his estate in the Bahamas. Nygard dismissed the claims as 'fabricated', but stepped down from his role as chairman of Nygard companies. The class-action suit came after 10 women said the billionaire used his wealth and influence to recruit young and impoverished women, then abused them with alcohol and drugs at 'pamper parties'.
