    Legendary fashion photographers Bruce Weber and Mario Testino have been dropped by magazine publisher Conde Nast after nearly 30 male models and assistants accused the pair of coercive sexual behavior in a New York Times expose.

    Several models told the newspaper that Weber grabbed their privates and put his hands down their pants. Others accused Testino, 63, who has photographed the English royal family several times, of pinning them on the bed during hotel room castings and masturbating in front of them. "He was a sexual predator," said model Ryan Locke.

    Testino's lawyers challenged the "credibility" of his accusers, while Weber, 71, called the claims "outrageous."

    Famed Vogue editor Anna Wintour, now artistic director of Conde Nast, said the allegations had been "heartbreaking to confrton" but that Conde would not work with the two photographers "for the foreseeable future."

    Interesting. Weber is famous for his soft porno images of men together. Wonder if this notoriety will increase sales of his photo books. ("There is no su c h thing as bad publicity.")
