Mohamed Hadid is denying sexual misconduct allegations made by model Miranda Vee in the wake of allegations made by Kate Upton against Guess co-founder Paul Marciano. Upton, a one-time Guess model, took to Instagram this week and shared her experience with the brand, writing, “It’s disappointing that such an iconic women’s brand @GUESS is still empowering Paul Marciano as their creative director #metoo."
After she spoke out, PEOPLE reports, Vee then recounted her own alleged experience working with the brand and meeting Hadid, also on Instagram. “Thank you @kateupton. It is time people like @paulmarciano & @mohamedhadid get exposed for who they really are!”
She then recounted in detail her allegations against the real estate mogul, who she said invited her for coffee, and says it was during this encounter, which she says was "just me, him & champagne," "where he date raped me in [an] apartment." She then alleged she was later asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
Mohamed is now addressing the claims, telling TMZ that her account of the events is "totally untrue." He shared that the meeting took place about two years ago, after he said that she said she was a fan, and "when we met it was not a date and not once did I touch her."
Hadid also told TMZ that he plans to file a defamation suit against the 23-year-old model, and noted that she should go to the proper authorities and not social media to address her allegations.
