Hollywood Producer Peters Hit With Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

BARBRA STREISAND's ex-boyfriend JON PETERS has been slammed with another lawsuit from a former employee accusing him of sexual harassment. In a lawsuit filed Tuesday (05DEC06) in California, the SUPERMAN RETURNS producer is accused of sexually harassing former employee SHELLY MORITA and exposing himself to her three-year-old daughter. Morita, who is the plaintiff in the case, claims that during the year she worked as Peter's personal assistant, ending in February 2006, she was "harassed, verbally abused, and intimidated," to the point where she was forced to resign. She alleges that during a car ride the two shared during a trip to Australia, "Peters kept on asking plaintiff to smoke marijuana, and when plaintiff refused, he tried to blow the smoke on Plaintiff's face, leaned towards plaintiff and started kissing plaintiff." Morita also alleges that Peters, who has also produced CADDYSHACK, FLASHDANCE, RAINMAN and BATMAN, exposed himself to her young daughter, asking the child, "Do you want to see how boys go pee?" This isn't the first time the 61-year-old producer has been accused of sexual misconduct toward an employee. In 1998, COLLEEN BENNETT, Peter's former executive vice president of finance, filed suit, alleging that Peters groped her, exposed himself to her and conducted meetings in his underwear.
