Opera Star Placido Domingo Is Facing Sexual Harassment Allegations

It seems like it’s been a while since a high-profile celebrity has been accused of sexual misconduct, but yesterday, nine women accused opera star Placido Domingo of just that.  The allegations were uncovered by the Associated Press.  They span THREE DECADES, and were made by eight singers and one dancer. 

 

They all follow a similar pattern, too.  Domingo allegedly started by promising them help with their careers.  Then came the phone calls and flirty messages, along with unwanted kissing and hugging.  One of the women claims he put his hand down her skirt.

 

About three dozen people who worked with Domingo told the AP that they witnessed him engage in, “inappropriate sexually tinged behavior.”

 

Domingo has been the director of the Los Angeles Opera since 2003, and they say they’re investigating.  Domingo denies any wrongdoing.
