Steve Wynn Accused Of Rape And Fathering Child In Resurfaced Police Reports
The billionaire Golden Nugget, Mirage and Bellagio has also been accused of ongoing abuse and assault.
Hotel magnate Steve Wynn has been accused of rape by two women in newly-surfaced police report dating back four decades. The former chairman and chief executive of Wynn Resorts was accused by women in the 1970s, according to the reports obtained by The Associated Press.
In one report, a victim said that Wynn raped her at least three times around 1973 and 1974 at her Chicago apartment. She said that she became pregnant as a result and gave birth to a baby in a gas station restroom.
In another report, a victim who worked as a dealer at the Golden Nuggest casino (a property developed by Wynn) had consensual sex "several times" with Wynn but "felt coerced to perform the acts" because of his position. When she turned him down, she was forced to resign. She said that on another instance, Wynn pinned her against the refrigerator and raped her in her apartment. It's unclear how he got into her home as she had never given him a key.
The names of the victims has not been released.
Ralph Frammolino, a spokesman for Wynn, declined to comment on the latest allegations.
Prior to this, Wynn was accused of ongoing abuse and assault by dozens of employees and associates, including one that he allegedly settled with for $7.5 million, reports the Wall Street Journal. The 76-year-old billionaire, behind such properties as the Wynn Las Vegas, Golden Nugget, Mirage and Bellagio, has denied those allegations. He accused his ex-wife of instigating these assertions as part of their divorce proceedings.
“The idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous,” he said, according to a Reuters' report. “The instigation of these accusations is the continued work of my ex-wife, Elaine Wynn, with whom I am involved in a terrible and nasty lawsuit in which she is seeking a revised divorce settlement.”
Wynn stepped down from his position at his company in early February following the initial allegations. He has experienced financial loss following these abuse claims. Shares of Wynn Resorts fell as much as 10% following the Wall Street Journal article, reported Time.
