Disgraced designer John Galliano has been abandoned by his Jewish lawyer weeks before he stands trial for allegedly hurling anti-Semitic abuse in a Paris bar.
Stephen Zerbib had represented Galliano, left, since his arrest in February. The designer could face up to six months in prison and a £20,000 fine following two alleged rants against fellow drinkers. His lawyer has quit, with a source claiming: "Mr Zerbib has had enough."
Galliano, 50, who was raised in London and lives in Paris, is on bail. He was sacked from Christian Dior because of the alleged anti-Semitic rants and was fired as boss of his eponymous label.
