The lawsuit also accuses Giuliani of splitting money from “sold” pardons with Donald Trump.
The former mayor of New York and former adviser and former US President Donald Trump’s lawyer has been accused of sexual harassment by one of his employees, who has demanded compensation of ten million dollars (nine million euros).
This is Rudy Giuliani, for whom the plaintiff, Noelle Dunphy, worked since 2019. In the complaint filed by Dunphy and reported by the newspaper ‘The Hill’, Giuliani is accused of making numerous sexual references since the beginning of his work with the woman.
“Giuliani began requiring Mrs. Dunphy to work in his home and in hotel rooms so that she would be at his beck and call. She drank morning, noon and night, and was frequently drunk, so her behavior was always unpredictable.” reads the text of the demand.
In addition to sexual comments, the accused would have made numerous “sexist, racist and anti-Semitic” statements, which made the workplace unbearable. He also accuses her of not having paid the two million dollars a year that she promised him, receiving only 12,000 dollars (11,000 euros).
ALLEGATIONS SPLASHING FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP
Some of the accusations in the sprawling 70-page lawsuit hit former President Trump squarely, with whom Giuliani had an extensive relationship, first as a supporter and later as a lawyer.
According to Dunphy’s complaint, Giuliani offered pardons in exchange for money, specifically two million dollars (1.84 million euros), which would have been shared between him and Trump.
For its part, Giuliani’s legal team has “categorically” denied all the accusations, in a statement sent to CBS, and has described the lawsuit as “not very serious.”
