Former The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson host Gretchen Carlson has sued Fox News CEO Roger Ailes for sexual harassment.
The suit alleges that Ailes terminated Carlson’s contract because she rebuffed his sexual advances.
“I think you and I should have had a sexual relationship a long time ago and then you’d be good and better and I’d be good and better,” Ailes allegedly told Carlson, during a meeting she called to address what Carlson saw as unfair treatment in the newsroom. The suit also claims Ailes described Carlson as a “man hater” attempting to “show up the boys.”
Carlson is represented by Nancy Erika Smith of Smith Mullin and Martin Hyman of Golenbock Eiseman.
