SUPERFREAK Peters Jon Peters is a strange fellow, all right, but he's not about to admit to groping a former employee and exposing himself to her three-year-old daughter. Peters's spokesman, Brian Quintana, says the Superman Returns producer intends to fight the sexual harassment suit filed against him last week by his former assistant, Shelly Morita, and file an action of his own in response. "It's a frivolous lawsuit," says Quintana, who is senior vice president of Peters Entertainment. "This is a disgruntled former employee who is part of a trio of people who are all out to destroy Jon."
It should be noted that Quintana, a former party promoter and publicist who earlier this year obtained a restraining order against Paris Hilton, has admitted to lying under oath in the past. It should also be noted that he used to work for Peters's ex-wife, Christine, but recently switched his loyalties to Peters, who offered him $5,000 per month versus the $3,000 he had been earning.
