Guess Forms 'Special Committee' to Investigate Paul Marciano for Sexual Misconduct

In it Vee said, "It is time people like @paulmarciano & @mohamedhadid get exposed for who they really are!"

Eventually, Tsai - Upton's friend, protector, and Guess photographer - was sacked (the photographer told Time that Upton's account is accurate). I was able to send a quick text to Yu Tsai asking him to stay. I constantly blamed myself after it happened: "What am I doing to invite someone to treat me like that or grab me like that?" "I was extremely shaken, surprised and scared". "I was devastated, especially because at this point no one from Guess had even seen me".

"I would love for people around these (assailants) to come out so they're not enabling them and so that victims not only have to live through this, and then relive it again when they come out with their story", she said. "Do everything I could to wiggle away and avoid his pursuit, or punch the CEO of Guess. So I made a decision to just wiggle away".

Yu Tsai was the witness of Kate's fear, since she told him, in confidence, that fear would not let her model for a shoot with the company anymore.

She was sacked from the shoot the next day, as was the protective snapper, she claims.

The song features in the second trailer which sees Rikku leaving his Keyblade behind for the other version of him to use. According to Square Enix, there are roughly three worlds per game section, but that doesn't equate to nine total worlds.

Upton told Roberts that Marciano's alleged behavior greatly affected her.

The alleged incident with Marciano changed her perception of the modeling world, Upton said, and caused her to question herself. Since photographer Yu Tsai knew what he was trying to do and could feel Kate's fear, he insisted on being the one walking the model to the room. "I'm not looking for him to come forward and tell the truth and, honestly, I expected him to do that".

She said: "Now that I'm talking about this, I'm getting so emotional". She said Marciano threatened her career or more, by saying he would make her "disappear" if she said anything.

Marciano has denied Upton's allegations, calling them "prepostorous".

He denied he was ever alone with Upton and claims he "never touched her inappropriately".

Hong Kong Bus Accident Claims Lives
Hong Kong's public transport is usually safe, and deadly accidents of this scale are relatively infrequent. The bus, operated only on race days, was packed with passengers leaving the Sha Tin horse-racing course.

But Upton isn't the only person alleging misbehavior on Marciano's part.

Then, in May, 2011 Marciano allegedly forced her off a shoot, stating, "Get that fat pig off my set".

"[He was] caressing my breasts and grabbing my crotch and walked me over to my bed and laid me on my stomach".

According to the report, Upton opened up about the alleged sexual harassment she endured from the designer while speaking to TIME magazine earlier this month and in the report, Upton said she began to experience sexual harassment on her very first day of shooting with 65-year-old Marciano. She accused him of groping her and forcibly kissing her during shoots for Guess' 2010-11 campaign.

All of this sounds reminiscent of the behavior of disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein, i.e. the forceful invitations to spend time alone, the mention of other successful women he'd supposedly slept with.
