John Galliano May Be Getting Ready For An El Lay Lifestyle!

Is John Galliano about that El Lay life?!?

The ex-Christian Dior designer was spotted getting some grub at Sunset Tower's Tower Bar restaurant in West Hollywood last month with LVMH executive Katherine Ross.

Sounds harmless right? Everybody's gotta eat. Nerp!

Because the next day, Johnny Boy and his partner Alexis Roche, were hanging out with some friends and mentioned they're looking for an El Lay apartment to call home.

If John does pack up his things and move to the Hills of Beverly or Hollywood, we hope he can resist temptation. We'd hate to see his stint at The Meadows go to waste!

Good news for Robert Duffy!

The president of Marc Jacobs has revolved the sexual harassment suit brought on by the company's ex-COO Patrice Lataillade.

In case you forgot, Lataillade said he was fired last September after complaining about Duffy's sexual misconduct in the workplace, which included naked photo shoots and pole dancing.

LVMH denied the COO's claims and promised to vigorously defend the case in court, but it looks like that won't be necessary now.

As of last week the case was officially closed with a rep for LVMH saying the lawsuit was "resolved to the satisfaction of both parties".
