We just got word that John Galliano, the disgraced former creative director of Dior, is now suing his illustrious former employer for a whopping $18.8 million. There's basically no information available right now, except for a trial date: February 4, 2013 — almost exactly two years after his infamous anti-semitic rant in Paris in 2011.
We'll keep you posted as more news comes to light, but it appears that after losing his Chevalier of the Legion of Honor award a week ago, Galliano has had enough of the prolonged (and much-deserved, if you ask us) slap on the wrist he's been receiving from the fashion industry since being fired from Dior after the incident.
