Ex-waitresses sue Sin City strip club over sexual abuse

New York, July 30 (ANI): A Sin City strip club has been sued by six of its ex-cocktail waitresses, who say bosses at the Bronx joint subjected them to crude come-ons, physical and sexual abuse.

The class-action suit filed at the Manhattan federal court seeks unspecified damages from owner Gus Drakopoulos and managers Kevin Wells and Danny Cotton.

Allegations contained in the court papers include claims that Wells picked up plaintiff Janelle Denalli’s foot, “stuck it in his mouth and started sucking on it”.

Gloria Fields, another ex-employee, alleges that Wells poked his fingers “into her buttocks”.

While Esmirna Munoz said Wells called her vagina a “double cheeseburger” and “squeezed it really heard on numerous occasions causing physical pain”.

The women also claim that they were routinely ripped off through a variety of short-change schemes, including tip-skimming, improper wage deductions and denial of overtime payments.

But the three accused have denied the allegations, saying the lawsuit has no merit.

“The defendants absolutely deny all the allegations in the complaint and intend to vigorously defend themselves against this meritless lawsuit,” the New York Post quoted Sin City lawyer Stephen Hans as saying. (ANI)
