Taraji P. Henson was one of the few celebrities who did visit Ryan Seacrest for an interview on the Oscars red carpet yesterday for an interview – but we think it was just to let him know how she truly feels about him.
Seacrest has been at the center of sexual misconduct allegations from his former stylist who claimed that the E! News Anchor Ryan Seacrest has made unwanted sexual advances to her for years. Despite her allegations being backed up by a former co-worker, Seacrest is denying any wrongdoing, releasing the following statement:
“Yesterday, Variety published a salacious story that revealed the specific claims against me for the first time — even though an independent third-party investigator found insufficient evidence to support the claims. Much to my dismay, Variety didn’t speak with me or bother to speak with other credible witnesses or even ask for any of the evidence that was obtained during the investigation when offered, all of which clearly challenged the veracity of the claims made against me.
This person who has accused me of horrible things offered, on multiple occasions, to withdraw her claims if I paid her millions of dollars. I refused. I have worked extremely hard to achieve my success, and I don’t take my opportunities for granted. 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.”
Uh, huh. Henson bodied him on the red carpet.
