In the latest string of sexual misconduct cases in Hollywood, #RyanSeacrest has been accused of engaging in inappropriate behavior towards his former wardrobe stylist during his time at #ENews.
Though the details of her claim have not yet been publicized, the entertainer defended himself in a statement, saying:
“Recently, someone that worked as a wardrobe stylist for me nearly a decade ago at E! News came forward with a complaint suggesting I behaved inappropriately toward her. If I made her feel anything but respected, I am truly sorry.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He continued: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I’m distraught that anyone or any situation would call that into question. I’m proud of my workplace reputation and believe my track record will speak for itself. I’m an advocate for women. I will continue to support their voices.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
According to #Deadline, his accuser previously asked for money to keep quiet, however, Seacrest denied her proposal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A spokesperson for E! said the network is investigating the incident.
