Les Moonves received oral sex from multiple CBS employees, including one “on call” that would allegedly perform fellatio on him whenever he pleased, according to a recently completed network investigation.
The New York Times reports that the former network chairman destroyed evidence and “deliberately lied” to the attorneys CBS hired to look into the dozen-plus sexual misconduct allegations that were levied against him over the past year.
After speaking with employees, investigators found that the 69-year-old “received oral sex from at least 4 CBS employees under circumstances that sound transactional and improper.” They imply that Moonves gave these women acting roles or other network gigs in exchange for sex.
Investigators state that multiple employees were aware of Moonves’ “on call” employee and believed she was “protected from discipline or termination.” The lawyers wrote that Moonves “admitted to receiving oral sex from the woman, his subordinate, in his office, but described it as consensual.”
The report includes sexual misconduct allegations from before and after he joined the network in 1995, and states he engaged in “multiple acts of serious nonconsensual sexual misconduct in and outside of the workplace.” It also includes previously undisclosed sexual misconduct allegations.
Interestingly enough, the misconduct appears to have stopped after his 2004 marriage to Julie Chen, which the report describes as a “bright line.”
Based on their findings, investigators say the CBS Board of Directors has justification to deny Moonves his $120 million severance package, as he violated his employment agreement.
Investigators said they found Moonves “evasive and untruthful at times and to have deliberately lied about and minimized the extent of his sexual misconduct.” Moonves’ attorney, however, told the Times that he “cooperated extensively and fully with investigators” and “denies having any non-consensual sexual relation.”
