Someone had called my agency to say I had gotten fat. paul’s texting increased, telling me how excited Paul Marciano was to see me, that Paul Marciano wanted me to change in front of Paul Marciano so Paul Marciano could see my naked body getting into Paul Marciano clothes. Paul Marciano asked if I thought of Paul Marciano when I was posing sexy on set. All the language Paul Marciano used was extremely dominant and possessive.

It was an emotional and non-stop battle of games, power struggles and creative avoidance tactics.
