TMZ reports that Weber forced himself on two male models who are now being repped by celeb attorney Lisa Bloom. During a news conference on Tuesday, Jason Boyce and Mark Ricketson discussed their lawsuit, which alleges the shutterbug forced them to touch their privates back in 2014 during a photo session at his NYC showroom, resulting in depression, substance abuse and career/financial fallout.

Talk about career fallout. The photog, who has a studio in Golden Beach, Florida, has now been axed from a major Art Basel event: a fancy VIP party Friday to celebrate Weber’s book “All-American Volume XVII.” Cardi B was set to perform

But a rep for the magazine told Page Six: “Vanity Fair and [car company] Genesis, the dinner’s sponsor, have agreed to cancel.”
