John Galliano Sues Christian Dior For $15 Million

John Galliano was shamed and fired after his drunken anti-Semitic rant in Paris earlier this year. And after staying quiet for months, he’s finally firing back—with a lawsuit.

Galliano is reportedly suing his former employer Dior for $15 million. He has reportedly filed an employee/employer dispute claim with French the industrial tribunal Paris Conseil des prud'hommes and a court hearing is scheduled for February 4 2013, according to The Telegraph newspaper.

At the time of his firing, Sidney Toledano, the fashion house's president and CEO, said: "I condemn most firmly the statements made by John Galliano which are a total contradiction with the essential values that have always been defended by the House of Christian Dior."

The British designer has also recently been stripped of France's prestigious Legion d'Honneur award because of his conviction for racism.

Basically—one drunken afternoon at a Parisian bar cost him his career.

So far he’s kept a low profile, mostly because no one wants to see him, but expect to see a lot more of him once this lawsuit gets off the ground.
