BREAKING: Megyn Kelly Goes Rogue – Makes MASSIVE Claim Against Fox
Megyn Kelly has been alienating Fox News fans for months with her frequent attacks on Donald Trump as she attempts to appeal to more mainstream audiences. She was hoping that this would result in a bidding war between the liberal networks and Fox when her contract expired this July, but this came back to bite her when no other networks bid on her.
Now in the middle of bitter contract negotiations with Fox, Kelly has just pulled out the big guns in the hopes of securing herself a salary of over $20 million.
According to Radar Online, Kelly just told Fox executives that she too was sexually harassed by disgraced CEO Roger Ailes, saying he allegedly tried to sexually assault her in his New York office and hinted she would be fired when she “pushed him away.” This bombshell was reportedly added to Kelly’s long-planned memoir, Settle For More at the last minute.
In her book, Kelly wrote that when Gretchen Carlson first filed her sexual harassment complaint against Ailes, the CEO commenced an “intense campaign” to get her and other stars to speak in his defense.
“I was approached several times, and several times I refused,” Kelly wrote, adding, “There was no way I was going to lie to protect him.”
Kelly wrote that Ailes first began harassing her in the summer of 2005, a few months after she was hired as a legal correspondent in Fox’s Washington bureau. She claims her managing editor told her she had “captured the attention of Mr. Ailes” and she was summoned to his office for a meeting.
“Roger began pushing the limits,” she alleged. “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.”
Ailes offered to advance her career “in exchange for sexual favors,” she claimed., Though Kelly said she rejected “every single one,” she claimed he tried “physical advances” on her. In January of 2006, however, Kelly alleged that Ailes “crossed a new line — trying to grab me repeatedly and kiss me on the lips.” She responded by shoving him away, at which time “he asked me an ominous question: ‘When is your contract up?’ And then, for the third time, he tried to kiss me.”
The harassment finally ended after six months, and Kelly believes this is because she reported him to a supervisor. Kelly said she didn’t say anything until now for a reason.
“Crossing him was a major risk,” she wrote in the book, “but what if — God forbid — he was still doing it to someone?”
