Original story: The CBS board of directors is likely to announce the deal and Moonves may step down by Monday morning, several media outlets reported. CNN cited two executives with direct knowledge of the matter.
The new allegations include claims that Moonves forced the women to perform oral sex on him, that he exposed himself to the women without their consent and that he used intimidation and physical violence against them, The New Yorker reported.
In a statement to the magazine, Moonves responded to the new allegations, saying that three of the new accusers were participating in consensual sexual actions, The Hollywood Reporter said.
“The appalling accusations in this article are untrue," Moonves said in his statement. "What is true is that I had consensual relations with three of the women some 25 years ago before I came to CBS. And I have never used my position to hinder the advancement or careers of women."
One of the new accusers, television executive Phyllis Golden-Gottlieb, told The New Yorker that she filed a criminal complaint last year with Los Angeles police. However, police said that even though her accusations were credible, the alleged incidents occurred during the 1980s so the statute of limitations had run out.
The new accusations come six weeks after The New Yorker’s original article about accusations against Moonves, which was published on July 27.
come about six weeks after Farrow published his first New Yorker expose on Moonves on July 27.
