Michael Douglas’ sexual harassment accuser is continuing to speak out.
As RadarOnline.com has learned, journalist Susan Braudy bashed the star – for reportedly verbally harassing her in 1980 – in a sit-down interview with Today. During the talk, she also alleged that Douglas, 73, exposed himself in front of her when they worked together years ago.
“He slid down the floor, unbuckled his belt and put his hand inside his trousers and I could see what he was doing. Then he began to sort of began to fondle himself,” she claimed. “I was very scared.”
The journalist said that the incident occurred during a work meeting in 1988. She added that while she told friends of the sexual misconduct, they urged her to stay quiet because they were “frightened” for her due to Douglas’ power and fame.
“He thought he was the King of the world and that he could humiliate me without any repercussions,” she added.
While Michael Douglas has decided not to speak out on the writer’s accusations, he previously told reporters that the claims were a “complete lie,” and that he was “extremely hurt” by them.
