"Four," Judge Charlie Foot Denies Allegations Of Sexual Harassment
Another music industry exec comes under fire in the #MeToo movement.
Charlie Walk is the last prominent man in entertainment under fire in #MeToo movement. The Four-judge and president of the Republic Records has denied the sexual harassment accusations made against him by the Life Lab founder Tristan Coopersmith.
"It's very disturbing to learn of this false allegation made by someone who worked with me 15 years ago, without incident, to Walk," he said on Monday (29 January). "There has never been a single HR claim against me at any time during my 25-year career, which covers three of the main companies.
"I have been a supporter of the women's movement and this is the first time I have heard of this or any other accusation — and it is false."
In his open letter to Foot, Coopersmith alleged Foot, often made obscene comments and told him about her sexual fantasies while working at Sony Music. She claims that the music mogul groped their dinners on multiple occasions and once took her to his bed for an event in your home.

Although the incident took place before the Walk joined Republic Records, his current employers are looking for in the pleadings.
"Though it seems that this blog relates to the period prior to the Lord to Walk to the appointment of her position at Republic Records, we take the allegations very seriously and intends to conduct a full and complete review of this matter," Universal Music, the parent company of the Republic, said in a statement.
FOX, the home of The Four, is also the assessment of the situation.
"We only recently have learned of these recent allegations that the Lord's Walk," FOX said in his own statement on the matter. "We are currently reviewing this issue and are committed to fostering a safe environment for all of our shows."
The Four airs on Thursdays at 8 pm EST. DJ Khaled and Diddy also serve as panelists in the program.
