D.L. Janney, Christopher Cates, Alex Geerman and Ryan Vigilant went on the record with allegations against the photographer in a report published by The Business of Fashion. The models’ assault allegations date back to 1982.
Janney, who just released a memoir about his experience in the industry, told Business of Fashion that he believes he was blacklisted from the industry after refusing Weber on two separate occasions. In 1982, Weber allegedly asked Janney to strip naked during a shoot for British Vogue and, on another shoot for GQ, Janney and his brother were asked by the photographer to take off their shirts and “pretend to be boyfriends,” Janney said.
