After a skiing accident last year left hotelier André Balazs bedridden, he ended up in Paris.

Now, about a year later, he’s reportedly returned; he celebrated last night by hosting a party in his Soho loft, according to the New York Post. Ben Stiller, Gina Gershon, Helena Christensen, Uzo Aduba and Eric Schimdt were among the attendees.

While he was gone, the #metoo movement began. In November of last year, the New York Times reported allegations of Balazs groping multiple women and, in one incident, digitally penetrating a former employee. The hotelier did not respond to the accusations at the time of the report. [NYP]–Erin Hudson
