Fox News star anchor Megyn Kelly has reportedly accused her former boss Roger Ailes of making sexually inappropriate comments to her and later sexually harassing her shortly after she first joined the cable news network in 2005.
Radar Online reports that Kelly has made a last-minute addition to her forthcoming first memoir, Settle For More, in which the anchor alleges that Ailes physically harassed her in his New York office and then hinted she could be fired if she didn’t give in to his alleged advances.
Kelly said the alleged harassment began in 2005, shortly after she was hired as a legal correspondent at the network.
“Roger began pushing the limits. There was a pattern to his behavior,” Kelly accuses in her memoir. “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.”
