Donald Trump Jr.’s Girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle Fired From Fox News After Allegedly Showing Sexual Pictures To Co-Workers: Report
HuffPost reports that Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle was let go from Fox News after an investigation into alleged sexual misconduct at the cable channel.
Guilfoyle’s departure from Fox News has been promoted as her decision to leave and work for a pro-Trump super-PAC.
However, six sources told HuffPost that Guilfoyle showed personal photographs of male genitalia to co-workers, often discussed sexual matters at work, and engaged in emotionally abusive behavior toward hair and makeup artists, and support staff.
The unidentified sources told HuffPost that Guilfoyle was investigated by human resources, knew she was going to be booted out in July, but repeatedly tried to delay her exit and have her allies appeal to Rupert Murdoch, the executive chairman of 21st Century Fox.
HuffPost notes that it spoke to 21 sources inside and outside Fox News and 21st Century Fox on the condition of anonymity.
Guilfoyle’s attorney John Singer issued a statement to HuffPost:
Any accusations of Kimberly engaging in inappropriate work-place conduct are unequivocally baseless and have been viciously made by disgruntled and self-interested employees. During her lengthy and decorated tenure with the company, Kimberly was beloved, well-respected, and supportive of anyone she ever met. It’s utterly preposterous that there are those who are nefariously and greedily twisting innocent conversations amongst close friends into much more than what it actually was for financial gain. Kimberly has happily moved onto the next chapter of her life and hopes others will do the same.
Guilfoyle once organized a lobbying campaign to keep the late Fox News CEO Roger Ailes at Fox News after he was accused by multiple women of sexual harassment.
