Lost’s Henry Ian Cusick Slapped With Sex-Harassment Lawsuit
Apparently, Henry Ian Cusick, unlike his Lost character Desmond Hume, can’t see into the future. Otherwise, he might have saved himself a lot of trouble.
The Associated Press reports that Cusick, along with the network ABC, is being sued by a woman who claims that he sexually harassed her and says that she was fired from the show after she she complained.
In the suit, which was filed in Los Angeles on Friday, crew member Chelsea Stone says that Cusick fondled her breasts and buttocks and kissed her on the lips in October 2007.
She goes on to claim that she informed her supervisor of the alleged harassment but was told to ignore Cusick. Twelve days later, Stone—who had worked for ABC since 1997—was fired in supposed retaliation for complaining about Cusick’s behavior.
It’s not known how much compensation Stone is seeking in the suit.
