Crawford's Husband Sued for Sexual Harassment

May 01, 2009 | 7:43pm EDT

Cindy Crawford's restaurateur husband Rande Gerber is facing a messy legal spat with two former female employees who have accused him of sexual harassment.

Gerber is being sued by two former waitresses, who claim they were fired from a restaurant owned by his company after ignoring his alleged advances -- and those of the venue's managers.

The pair filed suit in San Diego County Superior Court in March, according to TMZ.com.

One of the women claims Gerber attempted to kiss her when she worked at the Moonstone Lounge in the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego last year, and then "put his hand up (her) dress in between her legs in an attempt to fondle her crotch."

The women are suing for unspecified damages.

Gerber's spokesman says, "These allegations were previously investigated and shown to be baseless. This lawsuit has no merit."
