'The Calling' Singer

SUED for Allegedly Trying

To Bang the Secretary

"The Calling" singer Alex Band -- famous for his song "Wherever You Will Go" -- is a creepy pervy boss who stopped at nothing to bang his secretary ... this according to a new lawsuit.

A woman named Tali Sigalus has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Band, claiming she worked for Band's record label as an office administrator back in 2012 ... but was forced to leave months later thanks to his constant advances.

According to the suit, Band repeatedly came on to Sigalus despite her protests -- including trying to kiss her, telling her he loved her, calling her incessantly, and trying to have sex with her.

Tali says the harassment didn't stop until she left the job.

Now she's suing for unspecified damages for sexual harassment. She also claims she's owed overtime money. A rep for Band tells TMZ, the singer "vigorously disagrees with the accusations and awaits the truth to come out."

FYI -- The Calling's been on indefinite "hiatus" since 2005 ... and will probably never get back together. Sorry.

Okay. You only have one life... well that your aware of and you would rather be the person who sues someone because they find you attractive than the person who can say "damn I am so fine that I can get that"... Sexual harrasment comes with being a woman... IT BLOWS but thats the life we live in... be grateful if its coming from the lead singer of a successful band and not a old bald guy who says if you dont do stuff with him your fired... You left cuz you had a choice... aka avoid the days they band comes in and let your manager know so he can talk to the band leader... if anything its a resume builder for a woman in a society filled with pervy men ... GET USED TO IT AND STOP SUING FOR THE PUBLICS ATTENTION!!!

First of all the photo shown above was when Alex was 15; he is now 31... The Calling were an amazing band and Alex Band are now an equally amazing band. This guy is so sweet and amazing; has all the time in the world for his fans from all over the world.Tali herself has stated this is an outright lie on several websites and Alex has also made a statement. Don't believe it for a minute!!! All the love xxx

Ummmm, actually, from what I read, Tali never said this was an "outright lie" , what she said was, "and for the most part a fabrication" Big difference. And seriously, you guys don't even know the guy, he has time for his fans? because why? He hires someone to tweet to them. You fans are so clueless. And seriously, You think this chick wrote something, probably more like someone from his camp trying to diffuse the situation. Just because you think someone writes good music (his songs are ****ty btw, you would know this if you guys didn't have English as your second language) doesn't mean they are a good person!
