After an alleged spat with a couple in a Paris restaurant on Thursday, Dior has suspended iconic designer John Galliano, 50, pending investigation. Some reports claim Galliano exchanged slaps with the couple while others cite hair pulling. Some websites state he was arrested while others state he was detained and released. Further, some report that after questioning, Paris police escorted the designer home while others report that his chauffeur drove him home. Sooo…I’m not quite sure what to believe. (All do report that Galliano had been drinking though.) Whatever the truth, these accusations are untimely, as Paris Fashion Week starts Monday, and this is publicity I’m sure Dior would rather do without. As for Galliano, he has denied any wrongdoing, called Dior’s suspension “disproportionate” and has filed a defamation claim against the couple.
