A massage therapist said she “cried uncontrollably” after star West Indian cricketer Chris Gayle allegedly exposed himself to her, telling a Sydney court Wednesday it left her “very upset”. Gayle is suing Fairfax Media newspapers The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and The Canberra Times over a series of stories in January last year detailing the accusations. On the opening day of his defamation action Monday, he denied the allegations and claimed the media group was out to “destroy” him. His teammate Dwayne Smith, who was present at the time, has also denied the incident. The newspapers said the all-rounder exposed himself to a masseuse — who was working for the West Indies team — in a dressing room at the 2015 World Cup in Sydney and indecently propositioned her. She told the Supreme Court she went to the changing room to look for a towel and came across Gayle. She said Gayle asked her: “What are
you looking for?” She replied that she was looking for a towel. She alleges that he then “pulled his towel out and down”. The hearing is scheduled to run for 10 days.
