SA Celebrity suing SABC manager R3.5 million for sexual harrassment.

South African Presenter and Media personality Pearl Modiadie is suing the SABC and a Metro FM programme manager for sexual harrassment claims she laid against her former male manager at Metro FM.

Modiadie who was employed at the station for five years as co-host of Lunch with Thomas and Pearl until her contract was not renewed earlier this year, filed her papers at the Johannesburg High Court last month demanding R3.5 million for sexual abuse.

On 23 June 2021, it was reported that Pearl was allegedly subjected to suggestive comments about her body allegedly made by the male manager in an email thread.

Pearl confirmed the validity of the emails and added that the harrassment took place one more than one occasion.

"More than once, reference made about my body shape and how sexy it is. Uncomfortable sexual innuendos were thrown around during conversations, even in the presence of my now former colleagues", Pearl said.

Pearl also took it to twitter to show how grateful she is that the media picked the issue.

"I kept quiet for too long until media picked it up and never have I been grateful for that because it finally gave me the courage to speak out about the sexual harrassment that I was subjected to at Metro FM", Pearl tweeted.
