He said in a statement: "This person who has accused me of awful things tried to buy her silence by asking for money on multiple occasions - I refused".

Irish PM says remains concerned about UK Brexit position
In a speech last week, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said his party backed remaining in a customs union with the EU after Brexit. In a speech Friday, May said that would break up the U.K.'s common market and is unacceptable.

Tarana Burke, creator of the #MeToo movement, told Variety in an article posted Sunday that the network should not have sent Seacrest. More importantly, he said that having Seacrest on the red carpet at this point in a national reckoning over sexual misconduct is highly insensitive, disrespectful and "tone-deaf".

Seacrest first spoke with Oscar-nominated song writer Diane Warren and celebrities like Miguel, and later interviewed Allison Janney, who is nominated for best actress in a supporting role for her work in I, Tonya. "We shouldn't have to make those choices of, 'Do we or don't we?." she told Variety. It's about there being an accusation that's alive, and until they sort it out, it's really on E! News and shouldn't be on us.... In this case, though, Bellamy issued an apology and said she was "uninformed". Meanwhile, E! has stood by its "comprehensive" investigation, and Ryan is still expected to host the network's red carpet show at the Oscars on March 4. "So it wouldn't be that big of a deal". At recent Golden Globes and Grammys ceremonies, celebrities showed up in clothing and wearing pins in support of victims, and many pre-show interviews focused on those topics. The network previously faced a backlash after former host Catt Sadler reportedly left the network over unequal pay. The producer, Aileen Gram-Moreno, filed a complaint about the matter to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The Oscars, produced by Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd and hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
