Ex-employee sues Frank Miller and his girlfriend

Kimberly Cox and Frank Miller

One of Frank Miller’s former employees is suing for discrimination and mental anguish, claiming she was repeatedly mistreated by the comic creator’s girlfriend Kimberly Cox.

The New York Post reports that Joanna Gallardo-Mills, who was hired as Miller’s executive coordinator in November 2008, accuses Cox of verbal abuse, smearing her work area with feces, throwing phones at her, using a hammer to destroy her printer, and leaving dirty underwear and a “used menstrual pad” by her desk.

Gallardo-Mills says that after she complained, Miller agreed to allow her to work from home. However, she asserts that her complaints ultimately cost her the job.

Cox, who had a small role in Miller’s 2008 adaptation of The Spirit, told the newspaper she’s “shocked” by the lawsuit, as Gallardo-Mills “was offered a very heavy settlement and declined.”

oh good God this is funny shit…

Sounds like a job I had once ;)

“What? You can’t just abuse people then buy them off? I’m shocked!”

“Cox, who had a small role in Miller’s 2008 adaptation of The Spirit, told the newspaper she’s “shocked” by the lawsuit, as Gallardo-Mills “was offered a very heavy settlement and declined.””

Now see, it seems to me that she probably would have included something about not having smeared shit and period blood on her employee’s desk if, you know, she hadn’t done those things.

I know if the word “feces” appeared in a lawsuit against ME, that would be the very first thing I would address, not settlement talks.

Miller is a rank weirdo wingnut of the highest order. It doesn’t surprise me to read this. Unless it was second hand, I stopped buying his books a long time ago.

Girlfriend?! I thought he was married to Lynn Varley?

Clearly she has a case otherwise they wouldn’t have tried to settle. Looks like Miller is going to have to pony up some cash.

Kory: Miller and Varley divorced around 2005.

Wow. Not only is this story bizarre, but that is a creepy photo (I hope it’s somehow out of context).

I agree that my first response would be “Really? Feces?”

Makes you wonder if the woman that Miller dates has any affect on how he writes women…

So this happened around the time of Miller’s last major work (Ass)”Holy Terror”?

He’ll blame this on “I-Pad babies”.

Makes you wonder if the woman that Miller dates has any affect on how he writes women…

Considering that Miller’s own public statements on society have come to sound progressively more and more like the things said by his more satirical characters back in the 1980s, is it any wonder?

Dindi Gallardo is a former Miss Philippines representative to the 1993 Miss Universe Pagenat. She is also an actrees from the Philippines.

Its good she didn’t settle. Anybody should never be subjected to that! Much more to a beauty queen and an actress from Ther Philippines who is just wanting to have a normal life in the states.
