Ew. We’re not here to judge anyone, but these new sexual harassment allegations Lena Zawaideh is making against X Games star Shaun White are pretty disturbing, and very graphic. This behavior reportedly went on for 7 years, and Lena has text messages to prove it. See them here!
To give you a bit of background, Shaun White, 29, is being sued by Lena Zawaideh, according to TMZ. They both formed the band Bad Things in 2008, but she was fired shortly after the end of their 2014 tour. However, she claims she wasn’t paid for some of her work. And in new court documents, obtained by TMZ, Lena claims she was subjected to the “darker, misogynistic personality” of Shaun during her seven years in the band.
She claims Shaun sent her “sexually explicit and graphic images of ‘engorged and erect penises’ and forced her to watch sexually disturbing videos ‘including videos sexualizing human fecal matter,'” TMZ notes.
One video, titled Church of Fudge, is a hardcore porn “involving a priest, a nun and fecal matter.” Lena claims she was forced to watch this, and at one point, Shaun allegedly stuck his hands down his pants and then “stuck his hands in her face trying to make her smell them.” Lena also said Shaun tried to kiss her at a Halloween party in 2010, but she shut it down.
The court docs, which were filed by attorney Lawrance Bohm, claim Shaun forced Lena to cut her hair and wear sexually provocative outfits during performances.
“I am pursuing this case because women should not have to tolerate harassment at work. Shaun White should not be allowed to do whatever he wants just because he is famous. Although I am embarrassed to have been treated this way, I cannot sit by and watch him do this to other women,” Lena said in a statement.
It’s not clear how much money Lena is seeking, but she’s “suing for non-payment of her contract plus other damages for the alleged sexual harassment.”
