Charlie Rose Sued By Former Makeup Artist for Sexual Harassment

Charlie Rose Sued By Former Makeup Artist for Sexual Harassment

Charlie Rose is facing legal trouble after he was fired from CBS over sexual harassment allegations back in 2017.

The 77-year-old former CBS and PBS host is being sued by a makeup artist who worked with him for 22 years.

She is accusing Charlie of years of unlawful behavior toward female employees including verbal abuse and making derogatory comments about her weight.

“Throughout the workday, and at work events, Mr. Rose routinely groped and pawed at his female staff, pressed himself against them, hugged them, kissed them, pulled them toward him, whispered in their ears, stared at their breasts, looked down their shirts, and otherwise subjected them to inappropriate and unwanted physical contact,” the suit alleges, according to Variety.

Charlie‘s attorney Jonathan Bach is denying the allegations.

Mr. Rose vehemently denies and will vigorously contest these allegations. Among other things, the allegations in the complaint are completely inconsistent with written statements made by the plaintiff to Mr. Rose, including ‘I love working for you at your show, and would love to be part of any show that you host,’ ‘I consider it an honor to be a member of your team,’ and ‘hope to see you more often! Please stop by any time,’” Jonathan told Variety.

Last year, three other female employees filed suit against Charlie and CBS.
