Chris Hardwick's Ex-Girlfriend Chloe Dykstra Accuses Unnamed Boyfriend of Emotional & Sexual Abuse

Chloe Dykstra is speaking out to accuse an unnamed ex-boyfriend of emotional and sexual abuse, and fans are pretty sure she’s referring to Chris Hardwick.

The 29-year-old actress wrote an article for Medium in which she details the “controlling behavior” she fell victim to while dating a man almost 20 years her senior while in her early 20s.

Chloe says her abuser established rules within two weeks of their relationship beginning. These rules included her reserving every night for him, not having male friends, not drinking as he was sober, not speaking in public places, and not taking photos of them as a couple. She says she was expected to be ready for him when he came home from work and she “let him sexually assault” her regularly.

Chloe wrote that her ex-boyfriend “was obsessed with celebrity, being famous, famous people” and “only really made time for industry people who he considered ‘worth it’… When cameras were on us? He was a prince. Turn them off, he was a nightmare.”

During the relationship, Chloe lost 15 pounds within weeks and started pulling out her hair. Eventually, when she broke up with him after three years of dating, he blacklisted her from the industry.

“Because of my leaving him for someone else, he made calls to several companies I received regular work from to get me fired by threatening to never work with them. He succeeded. I was blacklisted,” Chloe said.

Chloe concluded her article, “To the man who tried to ruin my future: A sincere and heartfelt apology could have made my last four years a hell of a lot easier. The person I used to date would try to sue me due to pride- I would not recommend it. I have audio/video that will support and prove many of the things I’ve stated in this post. I’ve chosen not to include it for your sake, in the hopes that the person you’ve become will do the right thing.”

Chris is the host of NBC’s game show The Wall and AMC’s The Talking Dead. He co-founded the company Nerdist and the company has scrubbed all references to him from their website, pending investigation.

    I seem to be one of the few that’s actually surprised about this. Never would have thought he’d be this psycho behind closed doors.

    Because it’s obvious. Not to mention many former employees are blasting him on Twitter and confirming he is an A$$

    women love this type of guys and hate beta males

    He’s really good at turning on the “Nice Guy” act when he’s sucking up to celebrities (which is the context most of us see him in, as a host). It’s scary what people can hide when they want to. It makes it more unforgivable imo when they obviously know they’re wrong because they have the sense to hide it around certain people, but continue to behave that way in “private.”

  • Sansa Squad

    Don’t conflate “alpha males” and ABUSERS. Women most certainly don’t love this behavior, they are emotionally abused, manipulated, and coerced into either believing they deserve it or that they can survive it or fix/help the guy. Read what she wrote before running your mouth, thx.

  • cutitout

    Still having trouble finding the “abuse” in all of this…. He wanted her to do stuff and she did it. That is not abuse. This is what happens when you have no backbone and get involved with a guy that you are so desperate to be with you will do anything to keep him. How does one “allow” someone to “sexually assault them regularly?” Details? If you “allow” it is it still assault? This is vague and inflammatory. If a guy is assigning you ‘rules” in the BEGINNING of a relationship and you go along with it even though you don’t like it, you have to own it. She could have walked away. This would make sense if she was with him for years and they had kids or something…..

  • cutitout

    Some people love to be victims. If this guy was doing weird things early on in the relationship and he was not violent or prohibiting her from leaving then she is clearly one of those people. She gave him control, he did not take it and being given a thinly veiled ultimatum you don’t like from some dude you have been dating for a few weeks or months is not emotional abuse. It’s a warning sign. No one coerced her, it is/was just her personality and lack of self esteem, self worth, and desperation to be attached to this particular dude….for her own reasons.

  • Maria M.

    She was free to dump him. Sounds like a gold digging, famewhoring trash to me.

  • JR_from_Fla

    They had an ‘arrangement’ that did not go well. They admitted as much. Move on. She looks like a cheater.

  • Rhonda Schuck

    she stayed with her “abuser”" for three years? did he hold a gun to her head? Maybe the police should start sharing pic of women that are truly abused. you know the ones found in shallow graves and ditches and chained inside hell holes.

  • Rhonda Schuck

    sounds like she need some money. Sounds like he was her meal ticket.

  • Tra

    He had her blacklisted?!?!? Seriously doubt he has that kind of influence.
