John Galliano Headed to Rehab Immediately, Reportedly Aiming to Fight Dior Dismissal

>> Christian Dior began legal action to dismiss John Galliano this morning, but it sounds like the designer, who helped the house break the billion-dollar barrier, won't go without a fight. According to one of his colleagues, Galliano plans to fight his dismissal from Dior and has retained London lawyer Gerrard Tyrrell, of Harbottle and Lewis — the same man who represented Kate Moss in 2005 during her cocaine scandal.

In the meanwhile, friends of Galliano said they have "finally persuaded the troubled designer to go immediately into rehab," Suzy Menkes reports, "and that the pace of fashion today, and particularly the rigorous structure of a corporate fashion house, broke the fragile, artistic creator."

As for whether anyone will stick by Galliano, Menkes writes: "Most other designers, preparing their collections for Paris Fashion Week, and stunned by Mr. Galliano’s swift fall from grace, asked not to be quoted on the record. But Victoire de Castellane, Dior’s jewelry designer, summed up the general feeling when she said: 'It’s terrible and pathetic at the same time. I never knew that he had such thoughts in him. Or that he so needed help.'”
