Fashion designer Alexander Wang is in the news once again, this time for allegedly assaulting a student sexually. The new allegation against the 37-year-old came to light while the high-profile lawyer Lisa Bloom is representing 11 men who have already accused Wang of misconduct on several occasions. A 21-year-old fashion design student, identified as Keaton Bullen, has claimed, according to BBC, that Wang assaulted him at a New York City nightclub in 2019. 

Bullen had revealed that he and his friend were at the Fishbowl Club when the alleged incident occurred. They reportedly encountered Wang on August 24 around 11.30 pm. He told the news channel that he and Wang spoke about their mutual alma mater before they started to drink.

Who is Keaten Bullen?

Bullen is a student at New York’s Parsons School of Design, which also happens to be Wang’s alma mater. His Facebook account shows he’s currently studying fashion design at Parson School of Design and lives in Forth Worth, Texas. 

Recounting the events of the day, Bullen told BBC that Wang invited him and his friend over his table and offered them a bottle of vodka before leading them to the dance floor. He said, "All of a sudden he unzipped my trousers, put his hands in my pants and started grabbing my penis in front of a bunch of people. I completely froze.”

“He then said: 'I want to take you home with me'. I felt weirded out... and removed myself from the situation as fast as possible,” Bullen added. The design student expressed that he felt a “duty to speak out” in support of others who are being branded “liars” for coming forward with the allegations. However, he is not considering seeking any legal action against Wang and didn’t want his picture to be used citing concerns about the public accusing him of “seeking attention”.

A look at Wang’s sexual assault allegations 

Wang’s alleged sexual misconduct against many people came to light after male model Owen Mooney opened up about the 2017 incident where he claims he was groped by Wang at a New York nightclub.

The story soon went viral, drawing allegations of several more, when it was re-shared by whistleblower accounts DietPrada and Shit Model Management. The others to have made similar claims about Wang’s alleged sexual misconduct include New York-based DJ Nick Ward and actor Gia Garison. 

Wang’s representative, however, released a statement in December 2020, brushing these claims as rumors and denying all the accusations. They said the fashion designer intends to "hold accountable whoever is responsible for originating these claims and viciously spreading them online."

One of Wang’s lawyers Paul Tweed, in response to Bullen’s recent allegations, said, he is waiting for the night club's CCTV footage, which he said, “his client believes will totally disprove this allegation".
