The suit alleges that when Rad notified IAC officials of Blatt's conduct, they covered it up and kept Blatt as CEO specifically because he was central to their plan to downplay the valuation. Rad said Pambakian told him about the incident shortly after it happened, and that when he confronted Blatt about it, the CEO threatened him. 'If you take me down, I'm going to take you down with me,'" he told CNN.
IAC's statement did not respond to the lawsuit's allegations of sexual harassment against Blatt.
Tinder has helped change the way that people meet by gamifying dating.
Users can swipe left on a potential date's profile if they aren't interested, and swipe right if they are. When it was introduced, the app transformed the online dating experience and paved the way for a number of competitors that iterated on the format.
It also includes an allegation of sexual harassment against Tinder's former CEO, Greg Blatt.
