Versace Executive Sued for Sexual Harassment


A former assistant to a top Versace executive has slammed her boss with a sexual-harassment suit. Fay Rodriguez says she was forced to deliver her boss Patrick Guadagno's "intimate" phone messages from his gay lovers. For example, one such caller told her that he left his glasses at her boss's apartment and alleged that Guadagno drugged and date-raped him. When Rodriguez complained, Guadagno told her to "grow up" and "be a big girl." Versace has issued a statement saying: "Versace takes these types of allegations extremely seriously and we are confident that when the situation is resolved the company will not be held responsible in any way."
