So, we couldn't help but wonder how the blonde beauty is doing during this rough time.

Shopping for American Apparel online is about to get easier.
The hipster retailer is teaming up with eBay to launch their own storefront on the auction website starting in September.
When asked about the reasoning behind the new partnership, CEO Dov Charney explained:
"There are more than 30,000 searches for American Apparel on eBay each month and right now those customers are not buying from us directly. I’m excited to connect that demand with our vertically integrated production and distribution platform to create a new revenue channel for American Apparel."
Is it really that difficult for people to go their actual website AmericanApparel.net???
Besides, we all know the real reason why people are browsing eBay for American Apparel: to get it for less.
Another day, another lawsuit for Dov Charney.
The lawsuit filed on Tuesday said Irene Morales, Alyssa Ferguson and Tesa Lubans-Dehaven suffered "emotional distress, invasion of privacy and impersonation online" after three fake blogs were created in their names.
The NSFW sites (which are still live) feature nude photos of the accusers, emails and text messages allegedly sent to Dov as well as admissions of extortion.
We viewed the sites a while ago and couldn't help but notice some of the emails look really shady and/or fake.
All three are seeking damages.

Welp, apparently that couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, AA's newest lifeline claims Dov was the number one reason why he invested into the struggling clothing company.
Michael Serruya, a private investor from Canada, said of his $15 million investment:
"I think American Apparel is a tremendously strong brand and Dov is a remarkable visionary and entrepreneur. I think he is one of the top trend-setters in America today. I think given the proper resources, American Apparel has the ability to really deliver results."
We hope you're right, Mikey.

Way to knock a guy when he's down.
Good news, right? Well, not for Dov Charney.
Sources close to the situation say if AA is sold, it's highly unlikely the buyer will allow the CEO to stick around.
We can't say we're too surprised. In fact, that might be good for the company since Charney seems to only attract negative publicity.
Meanwhile, Dov remains in denial about the whole situation.
He told Counselor magazine the 'bankruptcy' mention in their SEC filings was "something we did as an obligation to shareholders… To say that the company is unstable is not accurate".
Whatever makes you sleep easier at night, Dov.
