Model Kate Upton accuses Guess founder of sexual harassment
WASHINGTON - AFP
Upton, who was once the face of Guess, became the latest star to add her voice to the global #MeToo campaign against sexual misconduct that kicked off following accusations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
She repeated this on Instagram and added: "He shouldn't be allowed to use his power in the industry to sexually and emotionally harass women #metoo."
Upton is married to star Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander, and is known for appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated swimsuit editions. She has also done some acting.
She became a celebrity spokesmodel for Guess in 2011. Other models holding that position have included Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford, and more recently Gigi Hadid.
