John Galliano is suing his former lawyer Stephane Zerbib for abuse of trust, charging that he stole $4.1 million. Galliano fired Zerbib this week, his spokesperson said, after discovering some abnormalities in Zerbib’s accounting practices. Apparently, in 2010 Galliano entrusted a company he owns that manages revenue from image rights and his Dior work to Zerbib, who relinquished the duties in February. Galliano claims that Zerbib had his way with the company’s funds.
