Peter Nygard, a Canadian fashion magnate, gained millions before gaining a reputation as a predator for his heinous actions, including s*x trafficking and r*pe, which ultimately helped him get the big money. The new Starz documentary, Evil by Design: Exposing Peter Nygard, follows his arrest in December 2020 in Winnipeg on charges of r*pe and forced detention.
Nygard is accused of preying on women and young girls throughout the United States, Canada, and the Bahamas for more than four decades, starting in the late 1980s. According to reports, the number of persons on the list of victims might possibly approach hundreds. Nygard routinely silenced women who sought to speak out, using his wealth and power. The three-part documentary, which is set to premiere on Starz on Friday, August 12, 2022, will reveal the disgraced fashion magnate and former CEO of the multibillion-dollar corporation’s decades-long exploitation. Let’s take a look at Nygard’s life before the release of the documentary Evil by Design: Exposing Peter Nygard.

Discussing the current situation and allegations that Peter Nygard is facing
Ten women filed a civil class-action lawsuit against Nygard in February 2020, alleging him of r*pes that allegedly occurred at his oceanfront house in the Bahamas. He was accused of operating an s*x trafficking network and enlisting minor females, some of whom were under the age of 16, in his recruiting efforts. The wealthy has vehemently denied the allegations, claiming that they are the result of a hate campaign sponsored and orchestrated by his Bahamian neighbor, millionaire Louis Bacon. He also claimed that they had been in a long-running feud.
