NEW YORK — Friday’s showdown between Naeem Khan and his disgruntled former creative director Lionel Geneste stemmed from a wage dispute, but drug use, the gift of a fake Birkin bag and manic behavior were among the accusations hurled by witnesses in Manhattan Supreme Court.
Geneste is seeking between $150,000 and $200,000 in unpaid commission, excluding interest for that sum, according to his attorney Bernard Daskal. After Friday’s court testimony, Khan said he was determined to see the legal dispute through without a preliminary settlement.
