Valentino’s representative says they are prepared to take legal action “against what appears to be a weak yet calculated attempt to obtain financial gain through ulterior motives in the matter.”

The rep added, “Bobby takes any allegation against women very seriously. However, false allegations damage true victims of sexual abuse.”
