Gay Man Claims Harassment by Billionaires


The gay former house manager for a wealthy New York City couple says the billionaire pair subjected him to antigay comments, and even made him work in the room that once housed the family's pet pig.

According to the New York Post,William Gamble filed suit in Manhattan supreme court. He charges that Lisa Marie Falcone, wife of billionaire hedge-fund manager Philip Falcone, "subjected him to homophobic comments and hit on him during his two-month stint working for the family."

The 47-year-old Gamble began working for the couple in February 2008 and managed the staff at their five homes, including a property on the Upper East Side. There, he claims he was settled in an office previously occupied by Wilbur, the family pig.

According to the suit, as reported by the Post, Ms. Falcone asked Gamble whether he was gay during his first interview, and she made homophobic remarks when he responded in the affirmative. She later put her hands in his pants during a trip to St. Bart's that Gamble joined, and hit him when he resisted.

Gamble was fired soon afterward. His suit seeks unspecified damages. A representative for the Falcones told the Post the lawsuit was a baseless attempt to get money from the couple.
