Veteran Journalist Touré Accused Of Workplace Sexual Harassment

Postado Janeiro 12, 2019

Entertainment journalist and television personality Touré Neblett is now involved in a sexual assault scandal of his own after notoriously serving as a talking head in the virally received Lifetime docu-series Surviving R. Kelly.

A make-up artist, who goes by the name 'Dani, ' alleged that Touré sexually harassed her while she worked with him on a show.

"He couldn't stop asking me to do anal, how I looked naked, if I had sex over the weekend, what it would be like to fuck me". Touré was eventually fired from the show.

Dani then states that she would make sure to have crew members in the room with her while she got him ready for the People/Entertainment Weekly show. Touré also allegedly apologized to her in several Instagram messages she shared with the outlet. As to why she reported him to HR after she quit, Dani says that she could not stomach seeing him go on talk shows to discuss the allegations against Weinstein. "I accepted his apology and was ok to move on but, you can't be a sexual predator and go around shaming other predators", she said.

He recently came under fire for some past predatory behavior of his own after a makeup artist saw him sharing thoughts of disgust toward the R&B singer on The Clubhouse Podcast with Mouse Jones and Jamilah Lemieux.

Touré, via a spokesperson, released the following statement in response to the allegations. "I have learned and grown from this experience", read a statement from his rep.
