And it appears some stars may have dodged Seacrest as he hosts the red carpet for E!
The stylist, Suzie Hardy, had claimed that she was sacked after she complained about Seacrest to E!'s human resources department. While the network is standing by their man, celebrities are not feeling his presence, and Taraji P. Henson gave him an ominous warning about karma. 'You know what I mean?'
Following her interview with Seacrest, Henson reportedly told the next reporter: "I'm great now that I'm in your company".
The American Idol host was accused of acting inappropriately with stylist Hardy previous year, but E! bosses have declared a third party they called in to investigate the claims "found insufficient evidence" to support them.
Director Dee Rees seemed to wave no when someone asked if she wanted to stop.
Some A-list representatives have said that their clients will choose not to talk to Ryan on the red carpet: "Usually Ryan is the one you want. but there are so many outlets on that carpet, why risk it?"
As you may know, Seacrest's former stylist, Suzie Hardy came forward with allegations of sexual harassment on February 26, 2018.
Hardy told Variety she suffered "years of unwanted sexual aggression" by Seacrest, saying he grinded against her while wearing only his underwear, groped her genitals and slapped her buttock.
Henson's comments were not lost on Twitter users, with some applauding her for cleverly slipping in a Seacrest dig. The Empire actress attended the ceremony in support of her friend, Mary J. Blige, who was nominated for two awards.
Seacrest has vehemently denied the allegations.
A spokesperson for E! gave HollywoodLife.com the following statement: "E!'s investigation was extremely comprehensive and thorough". The investigator is an attorney with almost 20 years experience and is highly regarded professionally.
"Any claims that question the legitimacy of this investigation are completely baseless", E! then responded.
