Megyn Kelly has accused (opens in new tab) former FOX chairman Roger Ailes of sexual harassment in her memoir, Settle For More, and now he's vehemently denying the claims.

"I categorically deny the allegations Megyn Kelly makes about me. I worked tirelessly to promote and advance her career, as Megyn herself admitted to Charlie Rose. Watch that interview and then decide for yourself," Ailes said in a statement (opens in new tab). "My attorneys have restricted me from commenting further—so suffice it to say that no good deed goes unpunished."

Kelly recently spoke about Ailes' alleged harassment on Dr. Phil, saying he would make "specific comments" about her body: "He said he knew I must have some very sexy bras and he'd like to see me in them."

She is not the first person to accuse Ailes of sexual harassment; former Fox News hosts Gretchen Carlson (opens in new tab) and Andrea Tantaros (opens in new tab) have also filed suits against him.
