Charlie Rose’s sexual harassment scandal has just exploded with even more scathing allegations of outrageous behavior.

Former CBS employees Katherine Brooks Harris, Sydney McNeal and Yuqing “Chelsea” Wei have sued the disgraced former 60 Minutes host and the network for sexual harassment during their time working for the 76-year-old.

According to New York Supreme Court documents viewed by, the women, all in their 20’s, claim Rose subjected them “to repeated, ongoing and unlawful physical and verbal sexual harassment, including without limitation: sexual touching; sexual comments; and sexual advances.”

Harris said Rose “sexually touched” her by “placing his hands on her thigh and kissing her cheek” during a required dinner, and called other women “prostitutes.”

He allegedly asked the women about their “sex lives,” and demanded they share sordid details with him.

The shamed newsman allegedly told Harris and McNeal they should “have sex with each other” as part of his “sexual fantasies,” and crudely told them not to swim naked together while on an errand at his Bellport, New York, home.

Wei said he called her “China Doll” as a “fetish” nickname.

The employees also claimed Rose verbally abused them, allegedly calling both McNeal and Wei “f***ing idiots.”

All three women said they filed complaints about Rose’s behavior with managers and human resources, but no corrective action was taken.

After sexual harassment allegations went public in November 2017, Harris and McNeal claimed they were fired by Rose, while Wei said she took a medical leave of absence beginning in March 2018 due in part to CBS’s conduct.

Rose, who was fired by CBS in late 2017, has not yet responded to the complaint.
