Kate Upton details sexual misconduct allegations against Guess co-founder Paul Marciano

"He promised me the same", Shannon said, claiming he told her he slept with Upton and said, "'Look where she is now'".

"I would love for people around these (assailants) to come out so they're not enabling them and so that victims not only have to live through this, and then relive it again when they come out with their story", she said.

She saw the excitement the women harbored and remembered how she once felt that way, until her view of the industry quickly changed after her meeting with Marciano.

Upton added the hashtag #metoo, thrusting her into the movement that has spread virally after public reports of sexual harassment allegations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. The fashion designer was accused by one model of groping her and attempting to kiss her during a business meeting in 2016, and another filed a lawsuit in 2009, which was reportedly settled, in which she stated that he sexually harassed her repeatedly, according to paperwork first obtained by The Blast.

When Upton rejected Marciano, she says she was sacked and labeled "fat".

The stunning model continued to work with Guess, but has said that she and Tsai made sure that she was never alone with Paul. "Do everything I could to wiggle away and avoid his pursuit, or punch the CEO of Guess". Upton also alleges he tried to walk her to her hotel room, but a photographer stepped in, in order to protect her from Marciano.

She said his behavior happened in the prescence of otehrs, includign photographer Yu Tsai, who corborated her story with ABC News. "Someone had called my agency to say I had gotten fat and would not be needed on set (that day)".

Marciano has claimed Upton was hungover and unprofessional on that final shoot. Von Unwerth told Time she doesn't recall the incident.

In a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission in early February, the company denied any misconduct on the part of Marciano, but said it would investigate Upton's concerns if it determines they had merit. "Nor would I ever refer to a Guess model in such a derogatory manner", he said. "They shouldn't be also expected to change the entire culture inside all these corporations and businesses".

"I will not allow others to defame me and tarnish my reputation". "I think what she's doing is fantastic and I think that being able to speak out and speak up is important". "The company is committed to completing an extensive and impartial investigation into all of the facts", Guess said in a statement.
