Rande Gerber obviously loves the nightlife. But does he like to boogie a little too much?

Cindy Crawford's hubby, who owns celebrity watering holes and other hotspots in more than a dozen cities, has been sued by two former employees for sexual harassment, according to court documents obtained by E! News.

A pair of women who once worked as waitresses at the Gerber Group's Moonstone Lounge at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego, Calif., filed suit against the company and its namesake in March, saying they were fired after refusing Gerber's and other staffers' advances.

One of the plaintiffs claims that, on one night in 2008, Gerber tried to kiss her three times and then put his hand up her dress in an attempt to reach between her legs.

Shelly Scott and Gillian Walker are asking for unspecified damages.

In response to the complaint, a rep for Gerber calls the allegations "baseless" and says the "lawsuit has no merit."
