Country queen Dolly Parton has found herself in the middle of a sex scandal after an employee at her Tennessee restaurant allegedly molested two children there.

ARMANDO GONZALEZ is on the run from police after bosses at Parton's eatery Dixie Stampede fired him when two girls accused him of groping them after a show they performed at the restaurant last Christmas (04).

Court papers filed by the girls' mothers state, "The restaurant should have known that Gonzalez had been engaging in inappropriate, sexually related behaviour."

One of the victims is seeking $10 million (GBP5.5 million) in damages, claiming she has nightmares about Gonzalez molesting her.
