RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that Fox News' Jerusalem-based foreign correspondent, John Huddy, has nearly become an outcast in the industry after his sister's lawsuit against the network.

Juliet Huddy received $1.5 million after she filed a sexual harrassment suit against co-president Jack Abernethy and her mentor Bill O'Reilly. The suit came right on the heels of Fox founder Roger Ailes' ousting.

But John, who's been at the network since 2014, now seems to be taking heat for sharing the same bloodline, insiders believe, despite his father, John Huddy Sr., being a consultant for the network for many years. His father was also one of Ailes' top lieutenants and confidantes before both men were fired last July.

"John's stressed out," a source exclusively told Radar. "He's out there in Israel. He's underpaid and he's working without a contract and he's gotten no bites from other networks."

"The Huddy name didn't use to come with any baggage," added the insider.

"An Emmy-award winning journalist shouldn't have trouble finding work elsewhere," said the source.

"And John isn't handling that news well."
