Billionaire fashion mogul Peter Nygard has traded Caribbean islands, private jets, and red carpets for the cold loneliness of a Canadian prison cell. After decades of sexual assault allegations against him, the designer was arrested in Canada on December 15, 2020.
Up next, American authorities say to expect an extradition to the U.S., where he will face justice in New York City.
That's not all that awaits him there: Nygard is the defendant in a class action lawsuit from more than four dozen women who are claiming he sexually abused them - charges Nygard denies.
The twisted story of how he hid his darkest secrets for years is the subject of a captivating new book, Predator King: Peter Nygard's Dark Life of Rape, Drugs and Blackmail, by investigative journalist Melissa Cronin.
"Peter Nygard is just the latest in a growing line of sexual predators to be brought to justice," Cronin told Front Page Detectives, "in the same class as Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein, and Jeffrey Epstein. Like them, he probably thought he was untouchable. Like them, he's learning that's not true."
Pick up Predator King on Amazon and prepare for the trial of 2021.
