Jamie Dimon: Shut Her Up!!

So what's President Obama's favorite banker doing when he is not chillin' with the President? 

According to reports, he is attempting to silence one of his employees at the request of Citibank.

Debrahlee Lorenzana filed a lawsuit saying she was fired from her job at Citibank for being too sexy in her work clothes.

She managed to get a new job at JPMorgan Chase, but the media frenzy surrounding Lorenzana is too much for Citibank and they put a  request into JPMorgan Chase head Jamie Dimon to shut her up. Dimon staying tight with the old boys network is trying to muzzle Lorenzana

NyPo has her Dimon intimidation tale:
The Queens stunner said she was told that if she went ahead with scheduled television interviews today to talk about her suit, she'd once again be without a job.

"They asked me if I was going to proceed. They said if I kept talking, it was grounds for termination," Lorenzana, 33, told The Post yesterday.

 The trouble began Thursday at her new job as a personal banker at a Chase branch in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, when stories about her suit against Citibank appeared in the newspapers, she said.

Her boss said Citibank is upset about all the interviews and that the hush order came from CEO Jamie Dimon, the single mom said.

"I said, 'I'm going to speak to the media -- this has nothing to do with you.' "

When she showed up for work Friday, her bosses kept harassing her to call off the planned TV appearances.

"I was under so much stress, [my boss] said it wasn't up to her and that the only thing I can tell you is pray," she said, in response to whether she would be fired.

Then Saturday night, her manager sent her a text message saying her day-off request for Monday was cancelled. But she still plans to appear on NBC's "Today" show and ABC's "Good Morning America" today.
