In the latest allegation against him, he is said to have become angry after learning the engaged couple, both senior staff, had only invited him to their reception and not the ceremony.
The fashion group’s 63-year-old founder is alleged to have berated the bride-to-be before pinning her fiance against a wall in February 2016.
He is said to have then paid them off with a gagging clause, The Daily Telegraph has reported.
One witness said: “He [Kelvin] was shouting at this woman. He was talking to her quite aggressively. Then they went into this meeting room.
“She came out after about five minutes, crying. When Ray came out, he was still fuming.
“Then the director came over and wanted to have a word with Ray and then they had a bit of a shouting match.
“It was quite loud and then Ray held him up against the wall.”
Following the incident, the couple left the company but were both given pay-offs after agreeing to sign non-disclosure agreements.
Kelvin already faces bullying and harassment allegations.
He is accused of making sexual innuendos towards staff, stroking people’s necks, talking about his sex life and imposing a “forced hugs” policy.
Kelvin is said to have hugged new recruits for more than a minute.
The firm says a “thorough independent investigation” will be conducted into those allegations, which it disputes.
