As we here at thegoldwater.com told you yesterday, US presenter Mr Ryan Seacrest was accused by one of his former stylists (Ms Suzie Hardy) of sexual assault earlier this week in a story with some very rancid details.
According to her lawyer, she reported the harassment allegations against him to human resources and was subsequently fired. She has now shared her story with the press.
Mr Seacrest now hits back: “I don’t want to accuse anyone of not telling the truth but in this case, I have no choice but to again deny the claims against me, remind people that I was recused of any wrongdoing, and put the matter to rest.”
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Ryan Seacrest is speaking out after being accused of sexual harassment, saying the woman offered to withdraw her claims "on multiple occasions" if he paid her millions of dollars <a href="https://t.co/SZXYcTt2ab">https://t.co/SZXYcTt2ab</a> <a href="https://t.co/CF8nF2SNaf">pic.twitter.com/CF8nF2SNaf</a></p>— BuzzFeed News (@BuzzFeedNews) <a href="https://twitter.com/BuzzFeedNews/status/968610930056507392?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">February 27, 2018</a></blockquote>

He furthermore accused Ms Hardy of making a demand for $15 million in order for her not to come out with the story.
His representatives have so far not provided any evidence that Ms Hardy ever made such a monetary request.
Ms Hardy in turn also shot rebuffed him: “I remained quiet for years out of fears that my story wouldn’t be believed and that I would be subject to scorn and ridicule for telling it,”
“I was emboldened by the bravery of others to finally and confidentially tell my story to NBC.“
“Ryan elected to take the story public with a false narrative that he was exonerated and the victim of some sort of money grab. He is not the victim, and I refuse to let him victimize me for telling the truth.”
