Woman is suing Rudy Giuliani, saying he forced her to have sex and owes her $2 million in unpaid wages


NEW YORK (AP) — A woman who says she worked as a confidential clerk for Rudy Giuliani during his tenure as Donald Trump’s personal attorney is alleging in court filings that the former New York City mayor forced her to have sex, and nearly did her a lot owe $2 million in unpaid wages.

Noelle Dunphy said in the lawsuit that she was Giuliani’s business development director and public relations consultant from 2019 to 2021. She first made her allegations public in January, but elaborated on her claims in a 70-page legal complaint filed in New York on Monday.

Giuliani “vehemently” denied the allegations through a spokesman. His attorney had previously denied that Dunphy ever worked for Giuliani.

“Mayor Giuliani’s years of public service speak for themselves and he will pursue all available remedies and counterclaims,” ​​said Giuliani’s communications adviser, Ted Goodman.

In the new court filings, Giuliani, 78, is portrayed as a hard-drinking, Viagra-using womanizer who made gratifying his sexual desires “a sine qua non of her employment.” She’s aiming for at least $10 million.

Dunphy alleged in the lawsuit that she made numerous audio recordings of Giuliani, including some in which she says he can be sexually commented on, solicited sex, and made sexist, racist, and anti-Semitic remarks.

Dunphy’s legal team denied a request from The Associated Press for the release of those records, saying they were part of the litigation.

Included in the complaint are screenshots of suggestive text messages purportedly from Giuliani.

According to the complaint, Giuliani began making sexual advances almost immediately, including kissing her in the backseat of an SUV on her first date and prompting her to sexually take care of him, sometimes while he was on the phone with high-profile clients.

Dunphy claims that Giuliani often demanded that she work in a bikini or American flag shorts that he bought for her, and he urged her to strip naked for him at video meetings.

Giuliani agreed to a divorce settlement in December 2019, but Dunphy said all she got from Giuliani was a few cash payments totaling $12,000 to cover living expenses. He still owes her $1,988,000, she said.

Dunphy also alleged that Giuliani broke his promise to represent her on a pro-bono basis in a protracted legal battle involving allegations of domestic violence.

In that lawsuit, Dunphy had accused a lover of raping her and throwing her down a flight of stairs. The man she was suing filed a counterclaim, claiming he was the one who was physically assaulted and harassed. He also sued for defamation, alleging that he had been blackmailed.

Dunphy agreed in 2016 to accept $10,000 to settle her claims. However, the two sides were still arguing about a final solution last year.

The Associated Press does not typically identify individuals who claim to be victims of sexual abuse unless they give their permission, as Dunphy did.
