FASHION tycoon Peter Nygard's Instagram model girlfriend lured a teen girl to be raped at his Bahamas holiday compound, legal papers claim.
Two women, who both allege Nygard sexually assaulted them when they were younger, are suing his so-called "top girlfriend" and "recruiter", and a talent agency that "represented her".
The accusations are made in two separate US lawsuits in which it is alleged they conspired to provide Nygard "with a steady pool of victims", reports CBC.
Nygard has been charged with racketeering, sex trafficking, and related crimes involving at least dozens of victims in the United States, the Bahamas, and Canada, among other locations.
Lawyers for the model - Suelyn Medeiros - say she "vehemently denies these false and salacious allegations."
