Gerald Marie, formerly the head of Elite Models in Paris, a husband of Linda Evangelista, and one of the villains in my 1995 book Model, is back in the news, charged with raping young models, according to the Sunday Times of London. Its story is locked but today’s New York Post includes a synopsis. If the ick factor doesn’t put you off, you can read all about Marie (who once threatened this reporter, saying that if I ever wrote about him I’d “never take another step” in Paris) in Model. These charges are new, but they date to a time when many similar tales were told in the modeling business–and recounted in the book. UPDATE: The Guardian’s Lucy Osborne advances the sorry story here.
