"It made me question what I was doing". But the whirlwind rollercoaster ride started when Marciano went to Shannon's home to supposedly show her the pictures from her photoshoot.

News of the investigation came shortly after former Playmate Kristina Shannon accused Marciano of sexual assault, claiming he dropped Kate Upton's name in an effort to allegedly coerce her into sexual acts.

Tsai declined to comment to ABC News on why he was fire and Guess did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment about Upton's interpretation of the firing.

Upton said Marciano grabbed her breasts and said he was "making sure they're real". "They are setting incredible examples and paving the way for those who may be afraid or even more so - for those that who feel voiceless and destined to suffer in silence".

"Now, she has expanded on her allegations in a TIME piece, claiming the Guess boss did in fact grope her breasts during a 2010 meeting, stating, "(He) started feeling them - playing with them actually.

"I fully support the #metoo movement", he continued. He also said he was never alone with the model, which Upton agreed with.

Cops: Man spanked stranger's son, 2, in grocery store
James Morris was not bothering a soul Tuesday as he stood in the self-checkout area of a local Kroger with his 2-year-old son. Officers reportedly noticed slurred speech and a strong odor of alcohol coming from him.

The newlywed tells TIME she's exhausted of having to "laugh off" the misconduct of fashion bosses and photographers in the industry: "I'm sick of being expected to laugh off these aggressive advances and accept the power imbalances that exist", she rages.

Marciano has claimed Upton was hungover and unprofessional on that final shoot. "Nor would I ever refer to a Guess model in such a derogatory manner", he stated.

All of this sounds reminiscent of the behavior of disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein, i.e. the forceful invitations to spend time alone, the mention of other successful women he'd supposedly slept with.

What happened between her and Marciano went on, Shannon narrated, as Marciano promised her a striving and high-flying career, as well as a Guess partnership. "I have pledged to Guess and its Board of Directors my full support and cooperation with a fair and impartial investigation". "I have devoted my entire career to building a fashion company and brand that have a long and proud record of empowering women. It used to work in the past but that's not the case anymore".

Guess has said it won't "condone such misconduct in any form", and has brought on law firms O'Melveny & Myers and Glaser Weil to assist. She welcomes any investigation that Guess or other companies undertake, the actress said. "So that victims not only have to live through this and relive it again when they come out with their story".
