“Republic Records is committed to a safe workplace environment where employees are treated fairly and respectfully. We have retained an outside law firm to conduct an independent investigation of this matter and have encouraged anyone who has relevant information to speak to the firm’s investigators. Mr. Walk has been placed on leave, and will remain in leave for the duration of the investigation,” a spokesman for Universal Music Group said in a statement.

He was also reportedly axed from The Four on the same day. While he will appear on Thursday night’s (February 1) pre-taped episode, he will not appear in next week’s live season finale according to Variety.

Charlie previously responded to an allegation made by Tristan Coopersmith earlier in the week: “It is very upsetting to learn of this untrue allegation made (by) someone who worked with me 15 years ago, without incident,” he said.
