LA, CA — La Beauty Spa is shutting down after a series of sexual harassment claims against its owner and two female staff members, the company announced Tuesday.
The LA Times reports that two women alleged in an internal email that the spa’s owner, Lula Jones, “inappropriately touched them on the genitals, breasts, or buttocks” and that her “totally inappropriate comments” to them made them feel uncomfortable.
Jones has denied the claims.
Jones was not immediately available for comment.
The company said in a statement to the Times that it “will cooperate fully with the ongoing investigation.”
