John Galliano‘s former lawyer St├ęphane Zerbib is counter-suing the disgraced Dior designer over defamation.

Gallianos Continuing Legal Woes

Zerbib was initially fired by Galliano last week over alleged discrepancies in the handling of Galliano’s financial affairs.

Galliano then made it official, suing Zerbib a few days later for $4.1 million, on the grounds that Zerbib had made several cash withdrawals from a company Galliano owned that managed revenue from his image rights and work at Christian Dior.

Zerbib himself now has a lawyer and is expected to file a defamation charge, among other complaints, against his former client today.

Talk about adding insult to (alleged) larceny. In addition to the Zerbib situation, there’s also that matter of the anti-Semitic rant heard round the world, for which a trial date will finally be set this Thursday, May 12th. [WWD]
