Right now, Tory Burch is somewhere wishing her billionaire status hadn’t been revealed.
Shortly after winning one legal battle, the designer has had another one brought up, but this time it’s by an ex-employee instead of an ex-husband!
Jessica Jones, a black, bisexual woman, claims she was called a "n***er" and a "disgusting" homosexual while she worked at the company's Beverly Hills flagship from July 2011 to July 2012.
She also alleges co-workers treated her badly and told people not to work with her while Jessica’s manager described her girlfriend as "that thing that comes to visit her at work" and would ask if she was going to get some fried chicken on her lunch breaks.
Rude and completely uncalled for!
As a result, Jessica says she had no choice but to resign because of how she was treated.
While Tory isn’t mentioned in the allegations, it is interesting that the ex-employee would wait six months until the net worth of the company has been released to bring up these issues.
