The storm surrounding star cricketer Chris Gayle over an attempt to flirt with an Australian presenter on live TV intensified Wednesday as new allegations about his behavior toward women emerged.

More female journalists aired complaints against the West Indian after he was fined $7,000 on Tuesday for his approach to Network Ten reporter Mel McLaughlin. Gayle apologized and tried to brush off the exchange with McLaughlin as a harmless joke.

Fox Sports reporter Neroli Meadows branded the Jamaican a “creep.”

“He does this constantly,” she told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. “He’s a creep, he has creepy behavior.”

She said Gayle came on to her during a 2011 interview saying, “Sorry, I was totally distracted by your pretty face — could you repeat the question?”

Nine News reporter Yvonne Sampson said Gayle had also asked her on a date after watching her carry out an interview.

“I had a notification via Twitter that Chris Gayle would like to take me out to dinner,” she said. “I’d never met him. I think Chris Gayle is a known womanizer, and that’s a really awful word, but that’s what he is.”

Cricket Australia chief James Sutherland said no one should have to face such comments, which were “completely out of line” and “inappropriate”.
