This is a weird turn of events.
A former employee who worked for Christopher Burch, Tory Burch's ex-husband and business partner, claims he was fired for NOT being gay.
Say what, now??
Jamie Ardigo says Burch told him:
"[He] only hired gay men because they were productive and he trusted them."
Ardigo has now filed a $1 million lawsuit in Manhattan against Burch, stating he found his comments to be "extremely offensive" and "inappropriate."
Naturally, Burch's attorney denies the allegations, adding they are:
"…prepared to mount a vigorous defense."
Oh boy. This is definitely a first. Only in fashion though, right??
