Model Lind Walter has filed a lawsuit against the iconic all-male review Chippendales, alleging that they humiliated him.
According to TMZ reports, the “Lord of Lapdance” Walter is suing Chippendales, claiming that he was forced out of the bow tie bunch by his bitter female boss — only to be exploited by the company he used to work for. The lawsuit states that Lind Walter, a former bodybuilding model and champ, was hired originally back in 2008 to be part of the Chippendales international tour. Walter added that the big bosses of Chippendales liked him so much that he was eventually asked to be the star of their resident show in Las Vegas.
However, Lind Walter claims that the female boss of the Las Vegas show wasn’t happy with the turn of events because it meant that she had to fire another dancer — one of whom she was reportedly quite fond of. Lind added that he quickly became the target of the female boss’ merciless wrath. The model says he was belittled, degraded and verbally abused on an ongoing and regular basis.
The lawsuit states that Lind Walter was fired back in February and was told that it was due to “budget cuts.” But the stud is not buying the story of Chippendales, claiming that the company hired three more people after they let go of him. Lind also claims that Chippendales is still using his image on advertisements and merchandise plastered all over Las Vegas — without his permission. As such, Lind Walter is suing Chippendales for unspecified damages.
