Noelle Dunphy, a published writer and business consultant, has made explosive allegations against Rudy Giuliani, claiming she was sexually harassed during her employment as his associate between 2019 and 2021.
Dunphy, who worked for Giuliani while he served as Donald Trump’s personal attorney, has filed a federal lawsuit in Manhattan, detailing instances of regular sexual abuse and coercion.
The lawsuit also includes claims of Giuliani’s involvement in making her lie to the FBI during their investigation of him.
Accusations of Sexual Abuse and Deception
According to Dunphy, she endured two years of regular sexual abuse by Giuliani while working for him during the final years of Trump’s administration.
She asserts that she was forced to keep the nature of their arrangement a secret due to Giuliani’s ongoing divorce proceedings at the time.
Allegedly, she was made to work off-the-books, with Giuliani deferring her pay until after his divorce was finalized.
However, Dunphy claims that he failed to fulfill his promise and has not paid her a single cent of her $1 million salary.
Legal Actions and High Stakes
Dunphy first announced her intention to sue Giuliani in January, prompting him to demand a criminal complaint.
In response, she has now filed a high-profile lawsuit, seeking $10 million in damages for various causes of action and the alleged $2 million in back wages.
The lawsuit emphasizes Giuliani’s failure to fulfill his responsibilities as an employer and accuses him of perpetrating a sham employment arrangement driven by a secret desire for a sexual relationship.
Dunphy’s Background and Interactions with Giuliani
Noelle Dunphy has a diverse professional background, working as a business consultant, writer, model, and interviewer.
She ran a website and podcast called Great Interviews, where she engaged in conversations with political and business figures.
Dunphy’s LinkedIn profile showcases her writing credentials and her participation in events attended by prominent politicians, including Giuliani and members of the Trump family.
Seeking Justice and Exposing Abuse
Dunphy alleges that Giuliani subjected her to a hostile work environment and regularly made inappropriate demands, such as insisting she work from his apartment in revealing attire.
She claims that she has evidence in the form of saved calls, text messages, and other documentation to support her claims.
The lawsuit aims to hold Giuliani accountable and seeks justice for the trauma Dunphy endured during her employment.
Giuliani’s Denial and Dunphy’s Courage
Rudy Giuliani has vehemently denied all the allegations, including accusations of battery, and plans to contest them in court.
In response to the lawsuit, Dunphy described Giuliani as a “sexist sexual predator and abuser” and emphasized her determination to seek justice against a powerful individual.
She spoke out against the fear and intimidation often associated with confronting figures like Giuliani, stating that she can no longer remain silent.
