Seacrest, who is a longtime host of E! Live from the Red Carpet was acquitted of the claims against him.
Actress Bellamy Young has released an apology to Ryan Seacrest, after she said that he should not host the upcoming Oscars pre-show amid sexual abuse allegations made against him.
Seacrest, who is a longtime host of E! Live from the Red Carpet was acquitted of the claims against him, but his accuser just came forward with detailed accusations against Seacrest.
Young was put on spot by Variety magazine, the outlet that had first published the allegations. The interviewer had asked her if Ryan should step aside from the post, but Young knew nothing of the story. When the journalist explained, the actress agreed that he shouldn’t host.
Now, after knowing the complete story, Young has tendered an apology. In a part of the much longer statement given to The Hollywood Reporter, she said, “I spoke on record about something I had no first-hand knowledge of. I trusted that the information that the journalist provided me with was complete, and I gave my general opinion based on the information he provided...” She went on, “I apologise to Ryan Seacrest. He has been exonerated from the allegations I was told about on the carpet, so my opinion is different now. I’ve learned that ‘I don’t know’ can be a complete answer. I will do better next time.”
