CNN reportedly learned about a new sexual misconduct allegation against its disgraced anchor Chris Cuomo just days before his firing.
The claim came Wednesday from prominent attorney Debra S. Katz, who is representing the accuser, according to The New York Times.
The article goes on to state the following:
Katz’s client is a “former junior colleague at another network” and the newly emerged allegation against Cuomo is “unrelated to the Gov. Andrew Cuomo matter.”
Katz reportedly said that her client “came forward because she was disgusted by Chris Cuomo’s on-air statements in response to the allegations made against his brother, Gov. Andrew Cuomo” when the CNN host told viewers in March, “I have always cared very deeply about these issues, and profoundly so. I just wanted to tell you that.”
Katz also represents Charlotte Bennett, the second woman to accuse former Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment.
The reports notes that it has not been confirmed whether the new allegation was the “additional information” that CNN referred to in the statement announcing Cuomo’s termination.
“Based on the report we received regarding Chris’s conduct with his brother’s defense, we had cause to terminate,” a CNN spokesperson said. “When new allegations came to us this week, we took them seriously, and saw no reason to delay taking immediate action.”
The media outlet also posted a formal statement on Cuomo’s termination to their official Twitter page.

“These apparently anonymous allegations are not true,” Steven Goldberg, a spokesman for Cuomo, also told the Times.
“If the goal in making these false and unvetted accusations was to see Mr. Cuomo punished by CNN, that may explain his unwarranted termination,” Goldberg added.
