ANDREW Cuomo’s ex Sandra Lee was spotted out with a new man in St Tropez as a sexual harassment scandal stacks pressure on the governor.
Lee, a celebrity chef, was reportedly spotted with another man nearly two years after she split from long-term boyfriend Cuomo.

On Monday, Lee and her man were spotted dining out at the posh L’Opera restaurant, according to Page Six.
Lee, 55, and Cuomo, 63, dated for 14 years before splitting, amid allegations that he cheated on her, which the governor has denied.
A source told the outlet that Lee is feeling good at the end of a weight loss journey she’s been sharing with fans.
“Between her recent birthday, and feeling great and healthy, Sandra feels especially grateful and blessed for her life right now,” the source said.
The same can’t be said for her ex, whose sexual harassment scandal reached new heights on Tuesday.
CUOMO SEXUAL HARASSMENT INVESTIGATION
New York Attorney General Letitia James announced that a probe into Cuomo’s conduct revealed he had “sexually harassed multiple women,” including members of his own staff, members of the public, and state employees.
James said that the governor, “sexually harassed current and former state employees in violation of both federal and state laws.
“The independent investigation found that Governor Cuomo harassed multiple women, many of whom were young women, by engaging in unwanted groping, kisses, hugging, and by making inappropriate comments.”
James also accused the governor of cultivating a “toxic workplace,” leaving employees fearful of coming forward with complaints of misconduct, enabling “harassment to occur.”
The allegations have led to widespread calls for the governor to resign.
More than half a dozen sexual harassment allegations were leveled against Cuomo earlier this year, with the claims ranging from instances of unwanted kisses, hugs, and groping, to inappropriate remarks of a sexual nature.
The investigation has also led to calls for the governor’s brother, Chris Cuomo, to be booted from CNN because of his involvement in helping his brother draft statements after the harassment allegations first began coming out.
The AG investigation found that the CNN host was emailing his brother’s advisers about how to respond to allegations in a public statement.
Chris, however, did not mention anything about the scandal during the Tuesday or Wednesday night episodes of his news show, Cuomo Prime Time.
Meanwhile, Gov Cuomo has denied any wrongdoing.
After the report came out on Tuesday, he held a press conference saying that any discomfort he caused was not intentional.
“I have never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate advances,” he said.
“I’m 63 years old and I’ve lived my entire life in public view,” he added.
“That’s just not who I am and that’s not who I have ever been.”
Cuomo admitted that he does sometimes “slip” and embrace, hug, or kiss people he knows, and even strangers, but denied the acts were motivated by sex.
