AceShowbiz - Incarcerated fashion designer Anand Jon Alexander has launched a lawsuit after he was reportedly stabbed in prison.
The style guru, whose celebrity clients have included Paris Hilton and Mary J. Blige, was convicted in 2008 on 16 charges of sexually assaulting girls and young women. He was ordered to serve 59 years to life in prison in California.
Alexander has been serving his time at R.J. Donovan State Prison and is now suing the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation after being repeatedly stabbed in the face by a fellow inmate.
"(Alexander was) waiting by the telephones at R.J. Donovan State Prison to call his mother for her 70th birthday (in May 2019 when) he was the victim of a grievous assault perpetrated by another inmate...," the lawsuit reads. "(The attack) caused grave bodily injuries, including multiple stab wounds to his face and right eye, (plus) five facial fractures."
Alexander is seeking punitive damages, alleging jail personnel failed to follow their own protocol or turn over the case to the district attorney's office, according to the New York Post's Page Six.
