Susan Braudy Alleges Michael Douglas Of Sexual Misconduct

Susan Braudy worked at Michael Douglas’ Stonebridge Production as Vice President between 1986 and 1989. Her job description was to hire writers, read scripts, and somehow watch over Douglas. All of these demand that she stays in Douglas’ apartment as opposed to a contemporary office where one may have expected to find her. Susan Braudy has alleged that during the course of her work with Michael Douglas, she has had to endure all sorts of sexual harassments. She recalls one of such which perhaps was the last straw that broke her camel’s back where according to her, “Michael unzipped his chinos and I registered something amiss.” “His voice lowered at least half an octave. I peered at him and saw he’s inserted both hands into his unzipped pants. I realized to my horror that he was rubbing his private parts. Within seconds his voice cracked and it appeared to me he’d had an orgasm.” Michael Douglas has come out to deny this allegation suggesting that perhaps Susan Braudy’s “disgruntled career” may have been responsible for this grudge. He, however, admits that indeed his language can sometimes be “colorful.” Michael Douglas’ wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones also seems to be backing her husband in this course by trying to rule out the possibility of this allegation.
