The week after Kimberly Guilfoyle lost her spot on Fox News, rumors are swirling as to why she left.
Ever since it was disclosed that Kimberly Guilfoyle would be leaving Fox News, there have been conflicting reports about whether or not her departure was voluntary.
According to Guilfoyle’s Instagram announcement this week, she’s left her role as weekend host and legal analyst to pursue opportunities working on behalf of President Trump. She has been dating his son Donald Trump Jr. since the spring, and will now serve as vice chairwoman of America First Policies, a nonprofit organization that promotes the Trump platform.
The official word from Fox News, according to a statement to Yahoo Entertainment, gives little indication of what prompted Guilfoyle’s departure. The network confirmed only that it had “parted ways” with her.
But sources have insisted that there’s more to the story. HuffPost has now reported that Guilfoyle’s exit was allegedly prompted by an investigation into sexual misconduct claims made against her. The publication spoke to 21 unnamed sources, some of whom are said to have connections to Fox News and 21st Century Fox.
According to the HuffPost report, Guilfoyle was allegedly told to leave the network after Fox News’s human resources department looked into claims of inappropriate behavior — including that she showed co-workers photos of naked men.
