Meet Gérald Marie Ex Husband of Linda Evangelista
Gérald Marie is a French businessman who used to run a modeling agency. Between 1987 and 1993, he was married to Canadian fashion model Linda Evangelista.
As president of Elite Model Management’s European division, he occupied a position that made him one of the most powerful men in the fashion industry.
Eleven women who have accused former French model agency CEO Gerald Marie of sexual misconduct and rape were invited to Paris in February 2021 to meet with investigators.
Carre Otis, an American model, and actress filed a lawsuit against Gerald Marie in July 2021 alleging that he raped her when she was 17 years old. Carré Sutton, a former model, filed a complaint in August 2021 stating that Gérald Marie repeatedly raped her at his Paris flat when she was only 17 years old.
Marie has been accused of sexual assault by at least 15 women who have come forward in the last 40 years while working as models. Currently, the group is urging French politicians to repeal legislation that dictates how long victims of sexual assault must wait before reporting the incident to the police.
