Hollywood Scandals 2018: Moonves Forced out of CBS after 25 Years

Leslie Moonves has claimed “untrue allegations” about his behavior in his parting statement following his forced resignation on Sunday from CBS, the company he has steered for nearly 25 years.

In a statement issued Sunday evening, Moonves said he was “deeply saddened to be leaving the company.” Moonves was forced out amid a growing list of sexual harassment and assault allegations leveled against the powerful executive by a dozen women.

Moonves’ departure was hastened Sunday by the publication of an expose in the New Yorker by Ronan Farrow. Six women accused Moonves of sexual misconduct and in one instance, violently throwing a woman against a wall.

Sunday’s story followed a previous report by Farrow with allegations from six women that Moonves harassed them and sought to retaliate or damage their careers in entertainment when they rebuffed his advances.
