As THR noted, Seacrest is not commenting on the specifics of the complaint, so it's now unclear what exactly the accusations entail.

American television presenter and producer Ryan Seacrest has disputed "reckless" allegations from a former colleague that he behaved inappropriately towards her. He also hosts his own radio program "On Air with Ryan Seacrest on KIIS-FM".

He said he was "truly sorry" if he made his accuser "feel anything but respected" and that he would co-operate with the investigation.

Details of the incident are unknown, but a spokesperson for E!

The former "American Idol" host is denying allegations that he engaged in inappropriate behavior with an employee at "E!"

However, Seacrest says he disputes the allegations and will cooperate in any investigation. Every couple of days, a new male celebrity is accused of it by random women, and while the allegations may or may not be legit, their frequency is beginning to make us question if they really are. He has worked as a multi-hyphenated producer as he's earned credit for his work in the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" franchise, among other projects.

He's best known for his role on American Idol but is now a co-host on Live! with Kelly & Ryan alongside Kelly Ripa.

The alleged victim apparently directed her legal team to make a request for a "substantial financial" amount for her silence, though Seacrest and his lawyers outright denied her any money whatsoever.

The accusations from the woman, whom Seacrest worked with at E!

“Throughout my 25 years in the entertainment industry, the majority of my co-workers have been women, and Ive endeavored to foster a positive work environment of mutual respect and courtesy, as thats how I believe it should be, ” he wrote. "News, came forward with a complaint suggesting I behaved inappropriately toward her", Seacrest said Friday in a statement obtained by Variety. I will continue to support their voices'. Seacrest's pictured onstage at the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Festival on September 24, 2016 in Las Vegas.
