A professional model has accused world-renowned fashion photographer Bruce Weber of sexual harassment and discrimination in a lawsuit alleging “casting couch practices.” The lawsuit, filed today in New York City by attorneys for model Jason Boyce, also names Weber’s company, Little Bear Inc., modeling agent Jason Kanner and Kanner’s company Soul Artist Management, which has represented Boyce since 2013. Boyce is seeking unspecified punitive and compensatory damages, as well as damages for emotional distress. “I’m very proud to represent Jason Boyce in this important case,” Boyce’s attorney Lisa Bloom said. Representatives for Weber, Little Bear Inc., Kanner and Soul Artist Management did not immediately respond to requests for comment. According to the lawsuit, which was obtained by ABC News, Boyce claimed that during a December 2014 photo shoot with Weber he was “subjected to a series of practices by Mr. Weber that were unlike any he had experienced previously.” Read more at ABC News.
