Bellamy Young Apologizes to Ryan Seacrest for Speaking Without Knowing Full Story

Bellamy Young has released an apology to Ryan Seacrest after she said that the television personality should not host the upcoming Oscars pre-show amid allegations made against him.

The longtime E! Live from the Red Carpet host was exonerated of the claims against him, but his accuser just came forward with detailed accusations against Seacrest.

Young was put on the spot by Variety, the same outlet that first published the accusations, and asked to give her opinion on a story she hadn’t yet heard about. She said that Ryan should step aside from the red carpet show amid the claims.

“I have an apology to make,” Bellamy told THR in a statement. “On Monday night on the red carpet, I spoke on record about something I had no first hand knowledge of. I trusted that the information that the journalist provided me with was complete, and I gave my general opinion based on the information he provided. The world is changing quickly right now, and many of us have been affected by this issue: I spoke up because I feel deeply that the secrecy of shame plays a significant part in what has kept this shift from happening before now.”

She added, “But never has there been a more urgent time to make sure our voices are used for truth, and I failed in that regard Monday night. Our words matter. Our word matters. I apologize to Ryan Seacrest. He has been exonerated from the allegations I was told about on the carpet, so my opinion is different now. I just want to clarify that anyone who uses my quote going forward is using the quote of an uninformed person and fanning the flames of a non-story by making use of an unwitting accomplice. I’ve learned that ‘I don’t know’ can be a complete answer. I will do better next time.”

    Uh, he was “exonerated” by people less powerful than him at a network he practically owns… And the accuser maintains that their investigation was a half-assed formality staged to find him “innocent.” I’m willing to bet Miss Bellamy got a slap on the wrist from the powers that be at ABC – a network that employs Ryan on both Live with Kelly and Ryan (ugh) and the upcoming Idol reboot (double ugh) – for speaking out of turn about their new golden boy because they have a lot of $$$ invested in him. Her gut reaction was right and it’s sad she’s back-pedaling now.

    Translation: The Kraptashians sent Bellamy a not so subtle message that she’d better shut up or she’d regret it.

    There you go making the same mistake she did. You’re going to make some man out there a very, very relieved divorcee.

    You hit the nail on the head. That’s how the system works to protect those in power and maintain the status quo.

    No one should speak out without learning the facts. Social media is such a quick exchange that it’s too easy not to wait. If he’s guilty than I hope he pays and doesn’t if he’s innocent and that’s known as justice. Too many are just anti-male and spew hate. It should be about the preponderance of the evidence and not about anything else.
