Famed shutterbug Bruce Weber is slapping back at accusers who claim he sexually assaulted them.
According to new legal documents filed January 2nd and obtained by TMZ, Weber is claiming that one of the accusers who formally filed a lawsuit initiated contact with him. Models Jason Boyce and Mark Ricketson claimed in December of 2017 that Weber forced them to touch their genitals doing a shoot. Boyce recently tacked on claims that Weber tried to force him into sex trafficking.
Weber has responded, TMZ reports, claiming that Boyce and his agents sent him text messages for years, some of which included "pornographic poses in a desperate attempt to get Mr. Weber's attention."
When Weber didn’t respond, Boyce continued to hound him, he claims, often sending shots "in a blatant attempt to be sexual, posing and bending shirtless in a manner to emphasize his genitals."
He is claiming the shots serve as evidence that Boyce was doing the soliciting, and he wants the sex trafficking allegations dropped from the suit.
