Former Playboy Playmate Accuses Paul Marciano Of Abusing His Power To Sexually Assault Her

The floodgates are opening.

As we reported, Kate Upton has spoken out with sexual misconduct allegations against Guess co-founder Paul Marciano — and now another model has come out accusing him of abusing his power to sexually assault her.

Apparently, the creative director (who should be fired immediately, BTW) even referenced Upton's successful career when forcing himself on other aspiring models.

Former Playboy Playmate Kristina Shannon (pictured above left) — who is known for posing alongside her sister, Karissa — told The Blast that she met Marciano back in 2012, and he promised to make her a star. He told her she reminded him of the late Anna Nicole Smith, and even set up a shoot replicating one of Smith's.

Shannon recalled:

"He specifically told me about Kate Upton and how he spotted her and made her famous. He promised me the same."

After the "test shoot" was finished, Marciano invited himself over to Shannon's apartment where they were to review the photos and "talk shop."

That's when the late Hugh Hefner's former girlfriend says Marciano "forced himself" on her before the two engaged in sexual intercourse:

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

Shannon says Marciano claimed to have slept with Upton and bragged:

"Look where she is now."

Unfortunately, the misconduct did not end there. Shannon admits she continued to be intimate with Marciano in hopes he'd fulfill on his promise of a Guess campaign. That never happened.

He would also constantly ask her to send him nude photos with messages like:

"Send me some pix baby!"

Shannon stopped communicating with the designer last year. She was inspired to come out with her story after witnessing Upton's bravery:

"Now that I'm talking about this, I'm getting so emotional. The whole reason my sister and I did Playboy is because we wanted to be models. He hung that over me. I hate him."

So far, no response from Marciano. We suspect this won't be the last we hear about him.
