Lost's Henry Ian Cusick Sued For Meticulously Described Motorboating
TMZ is reporting that actor Henry Ian Cusick (who plays the beloved Scottish romantic Desmond on Lost) has been sued for sexual harassment. Accuser Chelsea Stone is also targeting ABC in the lawsuit, since she alleges that the conduct happened while she was working on the show and directly led to her dismissal twelve days later. Cusick had no comment, leaving the detailed lawsuit to speak for him. Says TMZ:
According to a lawsuit filed today in Los Angeles Superior Court, Chelsea Stone claims that while working on the show, Cusick placed his hand on her buttocks and caressed the back of her body while making moaning sounds.She also claims Cusick "placed his face on top of [her] breasts, moving his face from side to side." He then squeezed her breasts with his hands.
This is a thing that's unfortunate for everyone. My only solace is wading through the inevitable, hilariously conflicted comments at Jezebel.
