Donald Trump’s former lawyer Rudy Giuliani is being sued for sexual harassment by an ex-employee.
The $10m (£8m) civil case claims he coerced her into sex acts, making her work naked, and launched into “alcohol-drenched” and racist rants at work.
It claims he frequently exposed himself, took Viagra “constantly” and told Noelle Dunphy satisfying his sexual demands was a job requirement.
Mr Giuliani “vehemently” denied the allegations though a spokesperson.
Ms Dunphy, who says she was hired by Mr Giuliani’s firm in 2019 when he was working as Mr Trump’s personal lawyer, filed the legal case in New York state on Monday.
The lawsuit, which sets out her allegations in graphic detail, says Mr Giuliani began to abuse her almost immediately after being hired and made it clear that satisfying his sexual demands was an “absolute requirement of her employment”.
The lawsuit says the former New York City mayor coerced Ms Dunphy into giving him oral sex “against her will” in his flat.
