Eliza Dushku revealed that she was pregnant with her first child at the premiere of her new film, "Mapplethorpe", on Thursday, after discreetly marrying former tennis professional and current property manager Peter Palandjian in August.
A source from the Cinema Society screened at Cinepolis in Chelsea told Page Six: "His hump is really tiny. She spoke openly with people about her excitement. The star then confirmed the pregnancy on the red carpet.
Dushku and Palandjian got married at a private ceremony at the Boston Public Library. She told fans in September that they would get married.
Then, in December, it was revealed that CBS had paid $ 9.5 million to Cush, former favorite of the movie "Buffy Against the Vampires", as part of a settlement following harassment complaints against Michael Weatherly, with whom she co-starred in the TV series "Bull" in 2017. She claimed that Weatherly was afraid of spanking her, made a remark about a "rape van" and had mentioned a threesome in front of the cast and the team.
After speaking, she was dismissed from the series. In an editorial after the revelation, Dushku wrote that Weatherly's behavior was a "deeply insecure game of power, focused on the need to dominate and belittle. In no case was it entertaining or joking with two willing participants. "
She added, "It was a classic harassment at work that became bullying in the workplace. I was afraid almost all the time I was in his presence. . . It was undeniably daily humiliating behavior that is unacceptable in the absolute sense. "
The settlement concerned Dushku's salary if she had not been excluded from the show. "Bull" is currently broadcasting its third season on CBS. Weatherly, the star of the show, has already attended Jessica Alba at the age of 30 and just 18 years.
Dushku and Palandjian are producers of "Mapplethorpe". After the screening of the film, guests such as Charlotte Gainsbourg and Patrick McMullan went to a party in the new Fleur Room at the Moxy Hotel.
