Gerald Marie Age

Gerald Marie, 70, president of Elite Model Management in Paris for 25 years, is believed to have carried out a series of attacks on various women in the 1980s and 1990s.

In legal documents filed this week with the Paris Judicial Court, Carré Otis, 51, and Jill Dodd, 60, accuse Marie of raping her when they were 17 and 20, respectively.

Two other women accuse Marie of assaulting her at the same time.

Marie, now president of another agency, Oui Management, denies the allegations.

She said: “It would not be appropriate for me to comment on the historical allegations of misconduct against me at this time, except to make it clear that I categorically oppose them.”

To date, no criminal proceedings have been initiated and the prosecution may decide not to prosecute the charges.

 

Models who represent Elite

Some of the world’s most famous models, including Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Claudia Schiffer, were represented by Elite.

Otis, originally from the United States, moved to France to work for Elite when she was 17 years old and says she felt unable to introduce herself at the time of the alleged attack.

She said she was doing it now to “put an end to the intolerable acts of those in power who appear capable of acting with impunity.”

Dodd claims

Dodd claims to have been raped by Marie in 1980 after moving to France to work for Paris Planning, where she was then a reservations director.

She says in legal documents that the PTSD experience left her behind and made it difficult for her to trust men.

“I was so scared and embarrassed that I hadn’t talked about it in years,” she said.

“It still has an impact on my life, I don’t know if it will ever go away.”

A third woman, Ebba Karlsson, 51, said she was assaulted during a meeting with Marie at her Paris office and returned to her home country “traumatized” shortly thereafter.
