Legendary opera singer Placido Domingo, “one of the most celebrated and powerful men in opera, has tried to pressure women into sexual relationships by dangling jobs and then sometimes punishing the women professionally when they refused his advances,” according to the Associated Press.
A total of eight singers and one dancer have accused the 78 year-old of sexual harassment over the past 30 years.
Of the accusers, one accused him of sticking his hand down her skirt, while three others accuse him of kissing them on the lips.
In addition to those nine, six others told the Associated Press that they were made uncomfortable by things Domingo had said.
Dozens of others who worked with Domingo said “they witnessed inappropriate sexually tinged behavior by Domingo and that he pursued younger women with impunity.”
