The supermodel took to Twitter to accuse Paul Marciano, 65, of sexual harassment back in 2010 and 2011.

JLo who is the face of Guess’ new spring 2018 campaign was asked about the #MeToo movement in an interview with Billboard. The "Amor, Amor Amor" singer said, this “a beautiful time for women.” She added, “We are really finding our voices. We are really coming out of the shadows and saying how we feel. [It’s about] knowing our worth and our value and making the opposite sex aware of our worth and our value.”

“It’s a groundbreaking thing that’s going on in the world right now,” said Lopez. “Of course, I always support women speaking up. I’m super-excited about the time we are living in right now — especially for my daughter.”

On Feb. 1, the Shades of Blue star also released a statement to PEOPLE, regarding her stance on ending sexual harassment in all workplaces.

“My position on these issues is well-known, as I have been very vocal about them,” she shared. “I do not condone any acts of sexual harassment, violation or misconduct. Any accusations should be fully and thoroughly investigated. I will continue to support our rights as women.”
