Seacrest did not name the former E! stylist whose representation sent a letter to the "Live With Kelly and Ryan" host, 43, late last year stating the accusations was unnamed in the piece, but rather described how he felt after the allegations emerged, especially as someone who prides himself on being gracious and respectful to his colleagues.
"In November, I received a letter from a lawyer representing a former show stylist," Seacrest wrote in The Hollywood Reporter. "She claimed that I mistreated her more than a decade ago when we worked together. This arrived during an unprecedented public reckoning by women in our industry and beyond, courageously coming forward to share their stories, many of them heartbreaking."
Seacrest: "I absolutely want to be part of the change, the progress, that is coming. I did not want to be a postscript of evidence of its cause" https://t.co/mT6LUPn02D— Hollywood Reporter (@THR) February 6, 2018
The reckoning that Seacrest is referring to is the wave of stories of sexual misconduct that have come to light in the past few months. Both women and men have been speaking out and naming those who allegedly harassed or assaulted them.
