Michael Douglas fondled himself in front of her, ex-employee says

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Actor Michael Douglas arrived at the 41st French Cesar Awards Ceremony, in Paris, in Feb. 2016. A woman who worked for Douglas in the late 1980s says he fondled himself in front of her, an allegation the actor has vigorously denied.

NEW YORK >> A woman who worked for Michael Douglas in the late 1980s says he fondled himself in front of her — an allegation the actor has vigorously denied.

Susan Braudy appeared today on NBC’s “Today” show.

Braudy, a journalist and author, says Douglas unbuckled his belt, put his hand into his trousers and fondled himself in her presence. She says a friend later cautioned her not to tell anyone.

Douglas, a two-time Oscar winner, told Deadline earlier this month that he anticipated an upcoming report would contain an allegation by a former employee that he acted inappropriately in front of her about 32 years ago. He called it a “complete lie, fabrication.” He says his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, “has been very supportive.”

Douglas’ publicist said he would have no further comment.
