A new accuser has come forward with disturbing allegations of being forced to perform oral sex on former CBS CEO Les Moonves, and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the news has blindsided network executives – and could ultimately cost wife Julie Chen her job hosting Big Brother!
In a shocking revelation, actress Bobbie Phillips told The New York Times about a meeting she allegedly had with Moonves in 1995, when she was just 25.
Phillips, who had landed small roles in the movie Showgirls and TV series Married … with Children, claimed that she had hopes that Moonves, then president of Warner Bros. Television, could help advance her career.
But according to Phillips, while distracted by a chart showing projects in development, Moonves allegedly dropped his pants, exposing his erect penis.
“Look how hard you make me,” Moonves reportedly said. “Be my girlfriend and I’ll put you on any show.”
Phillips has said that the exec then grabbed her by the neck, pushed her to her knees and forced his penis into her mouth.
Moments later, a phone call interrupted him, freeing Phillips, she has claimed.
“I felt my blood rushing in my body,” Phillips alleged. “I was vibrating. I can still feel it.”
She claimed that she picked up a nearby baseball bat and thought she “wanted to use the bat to knock his head off.”
Instead, Phillips has contended that she put the bat down, and hurriedly made up an excuse to leave.
In a statement to the Times, however, Moonves said, “I strongly believe that the sexual encounter with Ms. Phillips more than 20 years ago was consensual.”
With her story now out, and deleted text messages referencing the meeting unearthed, Moonves' $120 million exit package is in jeopardy, as he could now be determined to have been fired “with cause,” which would completely eliminate his severance.
As Radar has reported, Moonves was forced out as chairman and CEO of CBS in September, after the New Yorker magazine reported that an initial six women had accused him of sexual misconduct.
Phillips now marks the thirteenth accuser to come forward against Moonves. Her lawyer says she wants $15 million in damages and is weighing her legal options after negotiations with Moonves’ lawyers collapsed.
Although his wife Chen is still officially hosting Big Brother on CBS after quitting The Talk, sources now wonder if she'll return to the reality show.
As Radar reported this weekend, Moonves and Chen are sticking together and they enjoyed a date night at ritzy restaurant Madeo.
But now, he's been hit with fresh scandal!
