Selling Sunset’s Bre sued for over $12million by previous employees over ‘vulgar behaviour’

In the lawsuit she’s been accused of homophobia and threatening violence

According to multiple reports, Bre Tiesi from Selling Sunset is being sued by three previous employees, over her behaviour towards them whilst they worked for her.

She has been accused of being “vulgar and violent” as well as allegedly harassing staff members, making homophobic comments and causing “emotional distress”. In court documents obtained by Page Six, it’s been said the three accusers are each asking for $4,250,000 in damages.

The publication reports that Lucy Poole, Amanda Bustard and Kenneth Gomez filed a lawsuit against their former boss in a Los Angeles court last Thursday. They claim they were subjected to “continuous, pervasive, objectively, and subjectively offensive harassment” during their time working for the real estate agent. The claimants worked as a nanny, social media manager and assistant and stylist for Bre.

The documents added: “Plaintiffs were harassed, discriminated against, and/or retaliated against on the basis of their sex, gender, and/or sexual orientation, and for having repeatedly reported, and demanded cessation of the harassing, discriminatory and retaliatory conduct.”

They claim that since leaving their jobs they have “suffered severe emotional distress, loss of earnings, and loss of employment benefits, among other things.”

According to the documents, Lucy Poole “suffers a mental disability” and claimed she was called several names, including a “short bus riding bitch,” a “dodo head” and an “ADHD idiot.” Poole has claimed she was treated in a “vulgar and violent” manner “if a task was not performed to [Bre’s] satisfaction” and forced to throw away things in her son’s closet that could “be construed as feminine or girly.”

Bre has been accused of saying to Poole “that her child was not going to grow up to be a fa***t” and the lawsuit has claimed this was said with Bre knowing Poole was a member of the LGBTQ community.

Amanda Bustard has claimed she was “subjected to inappropriate and violent behaviour” and witnessed Bre “scream” at employees and allegedly threaten them with physical violence. The lawsuit claims Bre had said things such as “I’m going to kill her” and “I’m going to slam her head against the wall.”

Kenneth Gomez, who is also a member of the LGBTQ community, has claimed: “Ms. Tiesi-Moran would repeatedly make derogatory and demeaning comments about members of the LGBTQ community.”

The Tab has reached out to Bre’s management for comment but has not yet received a reply.
