‘I Never Touched Kate Upton’

Guess Jeans co-founder Paul Marciano says Kate Upton is lying when she says he sexually harassed her, adding she’s about to make a false claim he groped her.
Marciano gave TMZ a statement, responding to Upton’s tweet that he used his position “to sexually and emotionally harass women.”
Marciano says, “Ms. Upton provided no details … She leveled this malicious and false accusation only hours before a gala event at our headquarters in Los Angeles unveiling a new Guess campaign. Ms. Upton told TMZ that ‘I’m excited to tell my whole story.'”
He goes on … “I am told that she has been working with others for some time to defame me and will claim that I groped her among other things.”
Marciano’s response … “This accusation is false. I have never touched Kate Upton. I have never been alone with Kate Upton. I have never acted inappropriately towards her.”
Sources connected to Marciano tell us he believes Upton is lashing out because Guess ended its relationship with her after a disastrous photo shoot.
