The married owner of a powerhouse real estate firm that caters to Brooklyn hipsters tried to create his own harem using female staffers, a new lawsuit charges.
Guy Hochman of MySpace NYC abruptly canned longtime worker Dena Kology after she refused to become one of his conquests, the woman said in her Brooklyn federal court suit.
“There’s nobody more that I love than you,” Hochman allegedly simpered to Kology during one taped conversation between the pair.
“And it goes even behind the business, emotionally to levels that you can’t even imagine,’’ Hochman insisted, according to the suit. “I don’t share half the things I think about you. You kept saying, ‘Leave me alone, leave me alone.’ What else can I do?”
Kology said she joined the firm in 2009, helping to turn the then-fledgling business into a successful venture now entrenched in gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhoods such as Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Crown Heights and Bushwick.
And Hochman, who has children, repeatedly promoted her and assured her that she had a bright future with the company, the suit said.
But everything changed when Hochman launched a lusty pursuit of Kology in July 2013 — beginning with telling her she provided the inspiration for his grueling gym workouts, she said.
He later told her, “That new dress is driving me crazy — I know because it’s new because I know every dress in your wardrobe,” court papers state.
Another time, the boss allegedly said, “If you choose me, I will make you a rich woman and you would never have to worry about money.’’
Kology said she replied, “I’m not that type of girl who is looking for a handout or a man to supply me with things.”
At the time, office rumors were flying that Hochman was sleeping with another staffer — using the same gym-inspiration line with her.
The other woman “began to make certain the Plaintiff knew [about her affair with their boss], saying ‘I’m seeing the OBGYN and his diagnosis: Too much sex,’ ” the suit said.
“Plaintiff was also told by [the woman], ‘We are just like the ‘Real Housewives.’ You’re divorced, [a third female staffer’s] married, and I’m the mistress.”
After being repeatedly rebuffed by Kology, Hochman told her to take a hike, saying, “It isn’t working out,” she said.
“Hochman then hugged Plaintiff, smelled her hair and said, ‘I wanted to smell you one last time,’ ” court papers state.
