“During my relationship with Gérald Marie, I knew nothing of these sexual allegations against him, so I was unable to help these women,” Evangelista told the outlet of her ex-husband to whom she was married from 1987 to 1993. oVK世界播


“Hearing them now, and based on my own experiences, I believe that they are telling the truth,” she continued. “It breaks my heart because these are wounds that may never heal, and I admire their courage and strength for speaking up today.” On Saturday, Evangelista posted an Instagram photo that read, “When fear equals silence.” oVK世界播

In September, the 70-year-old businessman, now chairman of Oui Management, was accused of rape and sexual assault by three models (Carré Sutton, 51, Jill Dodd, 60, and Ebba Karlsson, 51) and one journalist (Lisa Brinkworth, 53), incidents that allegedly occurred in the 1980s and 1990s, according to the New York Times. oVK世界播

据《纽约时报》报道,今年9月,这位70岁的商人,现在是Oui Management的董事长,被三名模特(51岁的CarréSutton,60岁的Jill Dodd和51岁的Ebba Karlsson)和一名记者(53岁的Lisa Brinkworth)指控强奸和性侵,这些事件据称发生在20世纪80年代和90年代。oVK世界播

The outlet reports that the allegations are outside the French statute of limitations, however one claim with new evidence could be an exception. In September, Marie told The Sunday Times of London that he “categorically”denied the allegations and his lawyers told The Guardian, “He intends to actively participate in the manifestation of the truth within the scope of the opened criminal investigation.” oVK世界播


The Guardian states that Evangelista was dating Marie at the time of the alleged incidents and the women’s claims don’t suggest she was aware any crimes. A secondary article published Saturday included claims from a total of eight women. oVK世界播


On Saturday, Sutton, largely known by her professional name Carrie Otis, wrote on Instagram, “I am grateful this issue is being acknowledged but we have a long road ahead of us to seek justice. It has been incredibly disturbing for me and other survivors to have our words and woundings fall on deaf ears. For too many years. I encourage women to speak up and out now. We are safer in numbers.” oVK世界播

周六,莎顿(Carrie Otis)在Instagram上写道:“我很感激这个问题得到承认,但我们在寻求正义方面还有很长的路要走。对我和其他幸存者来说,我们的话和创伤被置若罔闻,这令人难以置信地不安。已经有太多年了。我现在鼓励女性直言不讳。我们在人数上更安全。“。oVK世界播

According to the New York Times, in her 2012 memoir Beauty, Disrupted, Sutton described being raped by Marie when she was 17 while under his management. oVK世界播


Karlsson, who reportedly said that Marie assaulted her during a meeting in Paris posted, “Finally, a lot more models are coming out to talk, and Gérald can try to deny his actions as much as he wants. Our voices are strong, and our testimonies speak for themselves.” She added that sexual abuse is common in the modeling industry and that as a young woman, she was intimidated into silence. oVK世界播


Evangelista, considered one of the “original” supermodels who rose to fame in the 1990s, is the subject of a new Apple TV Plus series called The Supermodels, reported Variety, along with fellow beauties Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington. oVK世界播

据“综艺”报道,伊万杰丽斯塔被认为是20世纪90年代成名的“原创”超模之一,她与其他美女辛迪·克劳福德、娜奥米·坎贝尔和克里斯蒂·特灵顿一起,是Apple TV Plus新系列“超级模特”的主角。oVK世界播
