Kate Upton: I felt pressured to stay quiet about sexual assault

I have always been so grateful to Ellen for doing that.

"A lot of girls were sharing how excited they were about the different opportunities they got and the start of their career, and I remembered being in that place", Upton said, "whenever I got the meeting to go meet with Paul Marciano and how different my view of the industry after that meeting was". She says he also called her "disgusting" and spread lies about her being drunk or unprofessional on set.

News of the investigation came shortly after former Playmate Kristina Shannon accused Marciano of sexual assault, claiming he dropped Kate Upton's name in an effort to allegedly coerce her into sexual acts. He then told Yu Tsai to leave us alone.

They would drop my brother and I off there and we'd go skiing all day and my parents would pick us up after work. He has been such a big part of my life. "But I know that he is going to help me and I am going to win for him".

Tsai declined to comment to ABC News on why he was fire and Guess did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment about Upton's interpretation of the firing.

In an earlier this week, Upton said about her experiences with Marciano: "It took a huge toll on my confidence and self-worth".

"He forced himself on me", Shannon told journalist, adding that he started "caressing my breasts and grabbing my crotch and walked me over to my bed and laid me on my stomach".

Condolences to your family. "We lost a sweet, sweet man and a sweet, sweet, SWEET artist today". "Just read that Reg E. While no cause of death has been confirmed, early reports claim that the actor had been battling lung cancer .

But Upton isn't the only person alleging misbehavior on Marciano's part.

Upton said when the incident first occurred, she had thought she was acting professionally going into a professional meeting - and for a time, she blamed herself. I have never touched Kate Upton. "Nor would I ever refer to a Guess model in such a derogatory manner". Quoting Marciano, Roberts said, "I fully support the Me Too movement". At the same time, I will not allow others to defame me and tarnish my reputation.

Days later, Paul slammed Kate's allegations as "malicious and false".

Obviously the next Kim Possible! Disney's Kim Possible is making a return, but this time she's got the big screen in her sights. Most importantly, hopefully a live-action Rufus (voiced by The Simpsons' Nancy Cartwright ) is not terrifyingly creepy.

"I have pledged to Guess and its Board of Directors my full support and cooperation with a fair and impartial investigation", he continued. "So you're con aptly pushed to show up on set no matter what happens and they're bringing up examples of other women who are fine with this behavior and have really successful careers so you're suddenly being pushed to be there". "It used to work in the past but that's not the case anymore". She welcomes any investigation that Guess or other companies undertake, the actress said. "Mr. Marciano denied the allegation at that time, and a contemporaneous investigation conducted in 2009 by the Company and outside counsel did not corroborate the plaintiff's claims", the statement read. "So that victims not only have to live through this and relive it again when they come out with their story".
