Sexual Harassment Controversy
Since the photographer has worked with the big name in Hollywood, he is also among few notable personalities, who have been accused of indulging in inappropriate acts in the past.
In 2018, after model Kate Upton (age 26) accused fashion designer Paul Marciano of sexually harassing her during a photo shoot in the past, Yu backed up her claim to be valid.
But, he immediately backed away from testifying for Kate after the celebrity photographer was himself accused of sexually harassing a male model in 2012 at a fashion show for Guess brand.
