The lawsuit, filed in Manhattan Federal Court, alleges that the 76-year-old Nygard raped seven teenage girls, ages 14 to 16, at his private Nygard Cay getaway in the Bahamas — with some of the terrified teens drugged before they were sexually assaulted.

Among the guests at Nygard’s luxury property over the years was Prince Andrew, who came under scrutiny for his close ties to Jeffrey Epstein before the convicted sex offender committed suicide last year.

According to the 99-page lawsuit, Nygard asked his house guests to defecate on him, urinate in his mouth and use a sex toy on him. Four of his teen rape victims were virgins before they were lured into the bedroom at the multimillionaire’s warm-weather home, court documents say.

Nygard, 76, amassed a decades-old database of more than 7,500 women and underage girls, dating back to 1987 and maintained by the Nygard Companies’ information technology department, according to the class-action suit that identified 10 “Jane Does” as plaintiffs.

The victims were often recruited through regular company events known as “pamper parties,” where women who had been promised interviews for high-end modeling jobs were instead used for sex at parties featuring cocaine and alcohol inside the Bahamas residence, the federal court paperwork charged.

“Nygard used his considerable influence in the fashion industry, his power through corruption of officials, and a network of company employees under his direction to groom and entice underage girls and women,” the lawsuit alleged.

“Nygard would use means of alcohol, drugs, force fraud and/or other forms of coercion to engage in commercial sex acts with these children and women … in many cases, with knowledge that they were less than 18 years old.”

Former Bathurst teacher pleads not guilty to drug trafficking charges

An email to Nygard’s business for comment on the allegations was not returned Thursday.

Two years ago, the company — with its Times Square global headquarters — marked its 50th anniversary, the culmination of its founder’s unlikely ascension from Finnish immigrant to worldwide success and head of his eponymous clothing empire. The self-made man, who borrowed $8,000 to launch his women’s clothing business, once lived in a Manhattan apartment near his flagship Midtown store.

A New York Daily News reporter was escorted from the building after asking about Nygard and the lawsuit.

According to the lawsuit, some of the girlfriends were placed on the Nygard company payroll and paid monthly for “modeling and promotional services” rather than their duties as full-time sex workers.

Nygard, known for a flowing mane of hair spilling down to his shoulders and a buff physique belying his age, launched his business in 1968. He has steered clear of the Bahamas property since he was sentenced last year to 90 days in jail and a $150,000 in fines for alleged environmental violations at Nygard Cay.

In 1987, Nygard designed and built the luxurious property that, according to the lawsuit, was turned into a den of torture where underage girls were routinely assaulted.
