Daily Mail & Radar Online are reporting that Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly will come out with alleged, detailed claims of former Fox News boss Roger Ailes’ sexual advancements and harassments made on her. Again, these are just based on Kelly’s claims, with no apparent physical evidence these claims are completely true.
According to Daily Mail and Radar Online, Kelly is adding new information into her soon-to-be-published memoir, Kelly alleges Ailes began harassing her around the summer of 2005, which included “inappropriate sexually charged comments” as well as “physical advances.” The alleged harassment apparently went on for about six months, until Kelly reported Ailes’ supposed actions to a supervisor. In a passage, Kelly writes:
“There was a pattern to his behavior. I would be called into Roger’s office, he would shut the door, and over the next hour or two, he would engage in a kind of cat-and-mouse game with me — veering between obviously inappropriate sexually charged comments (e.g. about the ‘very sexy bras’ I must have and how he’d like to see me in them) and legitimate professional advice.”
Kelly alleges she rejected Ailes’ advances when he offered to propel her career “in exchange for sexual favors.” Kelly then writes: “Crossing him was a major risk, but what if — God forbid — he was still doing it to someone?”
At first remaining quiet about any discussions with the investigation, Kelly had not spoken publicly about her relationship with Ailes until several other women at the company reported similar claims to internal investigators regarding harassment. Another top priority claim came from former Fox News show host Gretchen Carlson. Fox pundit Andrea Tantaros alleges similar claims as well.
Ailes continues to deny the claims, despite being forced to resign from his position at the media company. The investigation remains ongoing.
