Bethenny Frankel’s new beau Michael Cerussi was once accused of rape by a college co-ed at Union College.
Cerussi and another fraternity brother were accused by a college co-ed of raping her, Cerussi did admit to having sexual relations with the co-ed, insisting that it was consensual. The co-ed never did file a complaint with the local police department, she did however file a complaint with the college with lead to Cerussi’s expulsion from the university in 2000.
Cerussi filed a lawsuit against the college and alleged victim in 2001. The case went on two years before a settlement was reached and the case was dismissed. Union College agreed to reverse the expulsion and reinstate Cerussi as part of the settlement agreement. Cerussi never returned to the college.
Cerussi whose full name in Michael A. Cerussi III is 34, making him 9 years younger than Frankel. ”Mac” as his friends call him works in finance in New York and allegedly comes from a wealthy family. He’s father Michael A. Cerussi Jr. was a corporate lawyer at the time of his death in 2011. Michael’s mother Kathryn was reportedly an executive with a major magazine.
Well, it looks like we can rule out Mac being after some of that Skinny Girl coin, I’m guessing he’s never seen Bethenny in action berating Jason Hoppy. Hmm, what does he see in her?
