Leslie's Allegations And Response 

Leslie was the chairman and CEO of CBS, a media company. 

He was accused of sexual harassment by several women, which was published in The New Yorker article

An investigation was started, and there were negotiations about him leaving CBS

Three hours after The New Yorker article, CNN reported that Leslie would step down from CBS

CBS later confirmed Leslie’s departure and stated he wouldn’t get any exit pay until the investigation was complete. 

CBS also appointed new board members and pledged to donate $20 million to organizations supporting #MeToo and women’s workplace equality, which would come from Leslie's potential severance. 

His recent allegation was that six more women accused Leslie of sexual harassment or assault from the 1980s to the early 2000s

These allegations included forced oral sex, exposing himself, physical violence, and career retaliation. 

One woman filed a criminal complaint, but charges couldn’t be pursued due to expired statutes of limitation.  

Leslie admitted to a consensual relationship with three women about  25 years ago. 

He denied the other allegations and said they were an attempt to damage his reputation.

Accusations Created Problems for Leslie And His Wife

In 2018, there were accusations of sexual misconduct against Julie’s ex-husband, Leslie, who used to be the head of CBS

This caused problems for both of their careers. 

Julie left her job on a TV show called The Talk, and Leslie left CBS without getting any money. 

Julie Chen wrote a book called But First God, where she talked about finding faith in God during difficult times. 

She recently did an interview about her book and said leaving The Talk was not her choice, and it hurt her feelings. 

She also mentioned that she talked with her husband about the accusations and had to explain to their son that some people were saying false things about their family. 

When asked about the #MeToo movement about speaking up against sexual harassment, Julie said she wanted to focus on her book and not talk about it too much. 

She wants people to know that her faith in God is genuine and not just for publicity. She is donating the money from her book to her church

Ultimately, she hopes her book helps people find peace and hope through a personal relationship with God
