MARIO BATALI IS BEING INVESTIGATED BY THE NYPD FOR ALLEGEDLY ASSAULTING A WOMAN IN A 'RAPE ROOM

The NYPD is investigating celebrity chef Mario Batali after accusations emerged that he drugged and sexually assaulted a woman in a private room at a posh Manhattan restaurant.

The woman told 60 Minutes Sunday that, while she worked at Batali's Babbo restaurant in 2005, he invited her to a party at the Spotted Pig, a restaurant with celebrity investors including Jay-Z and Michael Stipe.

The Spotted Pig featured an exclusive third-floor playroom where celebrities can party in private, according to the New York Times. But it earned a notorious nickname: the "Rape Room."
