Philip Green faces allegations of grabbing and making sleazy comments to six female workers at the Canyon Ranch.
The fashion mogul is accused of groping a women on the treadmill and in the locker room at the Tucson luxury spa in Arizona.
Judi Edelen, 64, who worked there for 14 years, says four women made allegations to her but that two others had also come forward to other people.
She said that they described Sir Philip as ‘grabby’ and alleged he groped their bottoms and used ‘inappropriate’ language, The Sun reports.

He was accused of placing his hand on a woman’s bottom as she used a treadmill in allegations that surfaced three months ago.
And a third woman, 30-year-old Jennifer McAmis, said last week that she wore three jackets while working in the spa because of the grabbing.
She says that bosses did nothing when she raised her concerns with other workers at the ranch.
Ms Edelen says that one woman allegedly subjected to groping had a ‘boys will be boys’ mentality.

Two other women are said to still be working at the ranch, where colleagues have described Sir Philip’s hands as ‘octopus-like’.
The retired personal trainer – who now lives in Mexico – said Sir Philip like working with blondes and slammed the spa’s handling of the allegations as ‘despicable’.
She claims that there was a lack of action because of how much cash Green pumps into the venue, where he also has a £2.3million home.
And she compared his alleged behaviour to US President Donald Trump who was once caught bragging about grabbing women ‘by the pu***’ on tape.
The former aqua fitness instructor branded both men as ‘entitled’ and suid that they think they can ‘treat people like dirt’.
A spokesman for the spa said Canyon Ranch does not condone or tolerate inappropriate behaviour to anybody associated with their brand.
He claims it has strict polices to prohibit any such behaviour and takes swift action based on allegations.
Green has denied any wrongdoing.
