Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Kate Upton, 25, has accused Guess co-founder Paul Marciano of sexually harassing women in the fashion industry.

The American supermodel, who is married to MLB Houston Astros player Justin Verlander, first tweeted, "It's disappointing that such an iconic women's brand @Guess is still empowering Paul Marciano as their creative director #metoo."

She then posted a screenshot of her tweet on Instagram and wrote, "He shouldn't be allowed to use his power in the industry to sexually and emotionally harass women #metoo."
