According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network did not find enough evidence to substantiate the claims made by a former E! wardrobe stylist against Seacrest.

The former employee had alleged that Seacrest has harassed her when he was the host of E! News almost a decade ago. Seacrest denied the allegations, saying “I treat all my colleagues with kindness, dignity, and understanding, as this is a principle that’s core to who I am.”
