Ryan Seacrest Is Being Accused Of Sexual Harassment
Here we go again...it seems like the 2 major stories of the year, so far are School Shootings and Sexual Misconduct!
This time it's Ryan Seacrest! He's being accused of sexual harassment by his former personal stylist Suzie Hardy, who worked for Seacrest from 2007 to 2013 and in November 2017 filed a complaint with E! about his behavior, the network started an investigation.
Even though Ryan is denying the allegations, saying "I eagerly participated in the investigation in order to demonstrate my innocence because I know my truth, and I believe in due process," Seacrest said this past Tuesday in his statement.
A investigation was done by an independent third-party and didn't find enough evidence to support the claims. So Ryan reiterated that he'd been cleared by a third-party investigator and said Hardy had repeatedly asked him for millions of dollars to keep quiet. However, on yesterday, Hardy was supported by a former co-worker who said."She would go to tie his shoe and Ryan would shove her head toward his crotch. I saw that more than once," the source told Kate Snow of NBC News.
With all of that being said, this weekend is the Oscars, you know each year E! has Ryan on the red carpet right? There's reports that some Hollywood publicists plan on steering their clients AWAY from him. I don't normally watch the Oscars but I may have to see watch them on the red carpet so I can see how this is going to play out!
