IT’S BEEN a rough summer for aging icon Fay Dunaway. First she was fired from her play Tea at Five that was bound for Broadway. Now according to USA Today, “ the Oscar winner is being sued by her former assistant, who alleges verbal harassment.”
In his lawsuit Michael Rocha, who says he worked with Dunaway while she was rehearsing for the play “Tea at Five,” alleges the Oscar winner used his sexual orientation to “demean and humiliate him at work.”
USA TODAY reached out to Dunaway’s rep for comment.
In papers filed, the outlets report, Rocha says he worked out of the actress’ apartment in New York, alleging that Dunaway “regularly and relentlessly” subjected him to demeaning tirades.
