Kevin Sorbo Alleges Gianni Versace Sexually Harassed Him
Kevin Sorbo is the latest star to speak out about being sexually harassed!
The actor, famous for his role as Hercules in the ’90s, has revealed the late Versace founder and designer Gianni Versace made an unwanted sexual advance towards him.
Talking about the Harvey Weinstein scandal to Adam Carolla for his podcast on Tuesday, the 59-year-old recalled the fashion great wanting to meet with him while he was in Italy modeling:
“He wanted to meet me because of my height. At 6-foot, 3-inches, he wanted me to do fashion shows with these 6-foot tall women.”
Kevin claims he was invited to a star-studded dinner party, and then another and another, with the number of guests growing smaller and smaller. At one, where the two were alone, he remembered Gianni talking to him about starring in a campaign:
“All of a sudden, his hand goes up my leg. ‘Dude, you know I’m straight?'”
To which, he says Gianni replied:
“This is why I like you. You’re not a girly man. You are a man’s man. “In life, you must fuck everything. You must do the dog, and the cat, and the boy, and the girl.”
And added Donatella Versace‘s brother wanted for them to “build a bridge”:
“The bridge was never built, and I never got the campaign. I got four free dinners.”
Kevin further explained to The Hollywood Reporter:
“He booked me for his fashion shows but I never got his campaign, but I knew the game, just like I know the game of Hollywood. Casting couches have always been around. I don’t play that game, nor do I care to.”
