Marc Jacobs, the designer, was not named in the suit. Lataillade, who was fired in September, is accusing Duffy of using company money to pay for personal expenses, making employees look at gay pornography, and the production of an MJI book comprised of photographs of employees in sexual positions.

(Sorry, but now all we can think about is Robert Duffy tweeting those naked bums at the Marc Jacobs Boom Boom Room party a while back. Hehe.)

Lataillade says he was fired from the company because he retaliated against Duffy.

LVMH told WWD that Lataillade was fired for "serious matters unrelated to the allegations."

Interestingly enough, this brings us back to another disgruntled employee: the intern who recently hijacked Marc Jacobs International's Twitter account, calling Duffy a tyrant.
