More than 100 women have come forward to allege decades of sexual misconduct by casino mogul Steve Wynn, who is CEO of Wynn Resorts Ltd.

The Wall Street Journal interviewed around 150 women who worked for the 75-year-old casino magnate and hotelier. Some told the Journal that Wynn was known to make advances on female employees and request sexual favors. They said they felt pressured to follow through given the power their employer wielded over them.

The investigation st爱上海同城对对碰

arted from a lawsuit by Wynn’s ex-wife, Elaine Wynn, which sought to lift restrictions on her Wynn Resort stock. That suit revealed Wynn paid a female manicurist $7.5 million in 2005 after allegedly forcing her to have sex with him.

Employees at the Wynn Las Vegas’ on-site salon — which Wynn frequented — told the Journal they sometimes created fake appointments and had others pose as assistants so female workers wouldn’t have to be in Wynn’s office alone with him. Some female employees reportedly hid in the bathrooms or back rooms when they heard Wynn was on his way.

By early Friday afternoon, Bloomberg reported that shares of W爱上海同城

On Saturday, BuzzFeed reported Wynn had resigned from his position as finance chair 阿拉爱上海同城

Wynn called the allegations “preposterous” and claimed the Journal’s investigation was instigated by his ex-wife, amid their “terrible and nasty lawsuit” over her Wynn Resort shares.
