Two women who allege fashion executive Peter Nygard raped them when they were teenagers are suing Nygard’s so-called “top girlfriend” and “recruiter,” and the talent agent and agency representing her.
The accusations are made in two separate lawsuits filed in the U.S., in which the women allege the defendants conspired to provide Nygard “with a steady pool of victims.”
The first lawsuit was filed in Miami by a Florida woman on Oct. 22. She claims Nygard raped her in 2010 when she was 18, and that Instagram model Suelyn Medeiros was partially to blame for allegedly luring her to the Bahamas.
