John Galliano lawsuit Page 1
With John Galliano‘s trial for public insult set for today in Paris, his lawyer has revealed a few details of her defense argument. Aurelien Hamelle told reporters late yesterday that her client isn’t anti-Semitic. He’s just a guy who took way too many anti-depressants.
When John Galliano finally has his day in court tomorrow, he’s expected to play the “I was drunk and stupid and I’m really, really sorry” card like it’s the last one in his deck. But according to a new report from Newsweek, which managed to get its hands on the designer’s case file, his drunkeness didn’t impede his ability to say and do some specifically nasty things to his accusers, Geraldine Bloch and Philip Virgiti.
After months of being judged by the fashion community (and insult-hurling paparazzi), John Galliano finally knows when he’ll have to sit in front of a judge for his public insult trial. Galliano is scheduled to go to the High Court in Paris on June 22.
It’s official: Stephane Zerbib, former legal counsel to lawsuit-beleaguered designer John Galliano, is now suing the designer for slander and defamation.
As if embattled designer John Galliano didn’t already have enough lawsuit drama to worry about, he’s now suing his former lawyer Stephane Zerbib for stealing several million euros of his hard earned money.
As part of an ongoing investigation of the alleged dispute between John Galliano and a French couple, the designer has been ordered to meet with one of his accusers at a Paris police station tomorrow afternoon.
