    D.C. hairstylist Andre Chreky settled a sexual harassment claim filed by a former employee for $7 million, according to The Washington Post.

    This follows five months after a federal jury found him guilty of sexually harrassing another employee. They awarded her $2.3 million.

    It's not clear how the money will be paid since Chreky filed for bankruptcy last week, according to The Washington Post.

    Chreky has denied all allegations. He painted both women as bitter ex-employees, the Post reported.

    The Washingtonian magazine once hailed Chreky’s salon at 1604 K Street NW “far and away Washington’s most popular salon.”

    Chreky was once the hairdresser to first lady Laura Bush.
