Las Vegas casino magnate Steve Wynn reportedly pushed former female employees to have sex with him or perform sexual acts, and touched several female workers inappropriately in new allegations that span decades, according to a new report.
The revelations were detailed in the Wall Street Journal report Friday and span more than 10 years. Wynn, who also serves as the finance chairman of the Republican National Committee, denied the allegations and claimed they originated with his ex-wife, Elaine Wynn.
“The idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous,” he told the newspaper. “We find ourselves in a world where people can make accusations, regardless of the truth, and a person is left with the choice of weathering publicity or engaging in multi-year lawsuits. It is deplorable for anyone to find themselves in this situation.”
Wynn, 75, also said, “the instigation of these accusations is the continued work of my ex-wife Elaine Wynn, with whom I am involved in a terrible and nasty lawsuit in which she is seeking a revised divorce settlement.”
