And another one.
The allegations are based on more than 150 interviews with past and current employees, as well as court records, that say the CEO and chairman of Wynn Resorts and finance chair for the RNC would pressure his employees and salon workers into performing sex acts.
In one example, a married manicurist received a $7.5 million settlement from Wynn after a 2005 complaint that he forced her into having sex. Another massage therapist reported that Wynn regularly demanded that she “massage” his penis to climax during each session, and he would also request oral sex. Others cited incidents in which Wynn would allegedly let his genitals hang out of his shorts and proposition workers. Gross.
“The idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous … We find ourselves in a world where people can make allegations, regardless of the truth, and a person is left with the choice of weathering insulting publicity or engaging in multi-year lawsuits. It is deplorable for anyone to find themselves in this situation.”
He also pointed the finger at his ex-wife Elaine Wynn, blaming a “terrible and nasty lawsuit” from her for these allegations.
In the wake of these damning accusations, the Wynn Resort stock shares have already fallen more than 8% after the news hit. Sucks to suck.
We’ll keep you posted as the story progresses.
