A second woman has come forward to sue celebrity hotspot Nobu Malibu over alleged sexual harassment and other actions by managers and customers.

A woman identified only as Jayne Doe II filed the latest suit Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court. The legal documents allege sexual assault and battery, gender discrimination, harassment, retaliation, failure to prevent discrimination and harassment, and negligent hiring and supervision.

The latest plaintiff joins a complaint filed on Sept. 13 by a 23-year-old hostess. That plaintiff also alleged that she and her female colleagues were routinely subjected to sexual assault by customers and managers.

The Nobu restaurants were founded by chef Nobu Matsuhisa and are coowned by actor Robert De Niro and producer Meir Teper. The restaurant is a celebrity favorite, and legal documents say the venue is frequented by such clients as the Kardashians, Beyonce, and Justin Bieber.

Nobu has not commented on the latest lawsuit

Jayne Doe II’s legal documents state that Nobu requires its hostesses to greet guests in scantily clad black uniforms. The venue allegedly did not protect them from “overt sexual harassment” from both patrons and supervisors, the suit states.
