Dov Charney, already suspended as chief executive of American Apparel, was fired on Tuesday and replaced by fashion industry executive Paula Schneider.

While the company would only say the reason for the termination was "for cause in accordance with terms of his employment agreement," the Los Angeles Times reported that Charney's reign at American Apparel had been marred by sexual harassment lawsuits and allegations of misconduct for years.

Charney, considered an innovative and the public face of the company, was suspended by the company in June, according to the LA Times and Forbes.

"I'm proud of what I created at American Apparel and am confident that, as its largest shareholder, I will have a strong relationship with the company in the years ahead," said Charney, according to the Times.

"Based on this investigation, the special committee determined that it would not be appropriate for Mr. Charney to be reinstated as CEO or an officer or employee of the Company," American Apparel in a statement, according to Forbes. "While under suspension as CEO, Mr. Charney had been serving as a consultant to the Company. This relationship has now been terminated."

The Times reported that Schneider will take over Jan. 5 while interim CEO Scott Brubaker will stay on as a consultant in the transition.

"I'm very, very excited to be part of something that is such a big influence on pop culture and helps so many Americans," Schneider told the Times. She said American Apparel is "the largest manufacturer of apparel in North America. There are a lot of jobs and a lot of people, and we want to keep that going."
