A spokesperson for Nole Marin denied claims that the stylist sexually harassed an aspiring young male model named Nicholas Hamman-Howe.

A representative for former "" judge Nole Marin has vehemently denied allegations the stylist sexually harassed an aspiring young male model. In a lawsuit filed at Manhattan Supreme Court in New York on Monday, November 8, Nicholas Hamman-Howe claims Marin, who regularly appears on American style shows, offered to make him a star in the modeling world in exchange for sexual favors.

In the papers, the student alleges he met Marin in 2007 and the stylist invited him to a photoshoot after telling him he had the looks to become a huge earner in the fashion industry. However, Hamman-Howe claims Marin tried to fondle him when he stripped to his underwear, prompting him to storm out of the shoot.

Marin is alleged to have contacted him again in 2010 and offered him a job modeling for an Armani campaign. Hamman-Howe says he agreed to the second shoot, but was dismayed when he found himself alone with Marin once again. According to the suit, Marin allegedly made inappropriate advances and later bombarded the model with lewd texts.

However the fashion expert's manager has dismissed the allegations as untrue, telling the New York Post, "There is no truth to any (of the claims)."
