Ryan Seacrest is the latest famous name to face allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the ubiquitous TV and radio personality has been accused of acting inappropriately with a former stylist.

This same publication reports that the the alleged victim made a substantial financial request of Seacrest in exchange for her silence.

The American Idol emcee and Kelly Ripa co-host refused said request.

The unnamed woman worked as a wardrobe stylist for E! and says the incident took place about 10 years ago.

No details about her claims against Seacrest have been made public.

A spokesperson for E!, however, has confirmed that the cable network is conducting an investigation into the matter.

And Seacrest has released a lengthy statement in his own defense.

Ryan Seacrest is Smiling

It reads as follows:

Recently, someone that worked as a wardrobe stylist for me nearly a decade ago at E! News, came forward with a complaint suggesting I behaved inappropriately toward her.

If I made her feel anything but respected, I am truly sorry.

I dispute these reckless allegations and I plan to cooperate with any corporate inquiries that may result.

I treat all my colleagues with kindness, dignity, and understanding, as this is a principle that’s core to who I am.

Throughout my 25 years in the entertainment industry, the majority of my co-workers have been women, and I’ve endeavored to foster a positive work environment of mutual respect and courtesy, as that’s how I believe it should be.

I’m distraught that anyone or any situation would call that into question.

I’m proud of my workplace reputation, and believe my track record will speak for itself. I’m an advocate for women.

I will continue to support their voices.

Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest

Seacrest, of course, is a very busy and successful producer and host.

He currently sits each morning opposite Ripa on Live With Kelly and Ryan” weekday mornings on ABC; is scheduled to serve as host of that network’s upcoming revival of American Idol next spring.

This news comes amid a wave of sexual harassment and assault allegations that have rocked Hollywood over the pastfew weeks, starting with back-to-back bombshell reports in The New York Times and The New Yorker that detailed allegations of sexual assault by Harvey Weinstein.

Since then, accusations of misconduct have been leveled against such significant stars as Kevin Spacey, Lous C.K. and Jeffrey Tambor, just to name a few.

We'll update this story with more details as news breaks.

Even Justin Bieber Couldn’t Save Knock Knock Live! Ryan Seacrest’s Show Cancelled After Only Two Episodes!

Knock knock! Nobody's home! Or watching TV, at least.

FOX's summer series Knock Knock Live! has just been axed after only airing two episodes.

The Ryan Seacrest-hosted and produced reality TV show -- where celebrities surprise deserving families at their homes -- bombed in the ratings, despite its super star power. David Beckham only drew 1.7 million viewers in the premiere, and 100,000 fewer people tuned in to see Justin Bieber this week. Ouch!

Reruns of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Last Man On Earth will fill Knock Knock's time slot for the rest of the Summer.

See which other shows got cut (although not as quickly) this year!!!

OK, Fallon's injury was pretty serious, and while Seacrest's wasn't quite as significant that doesn't mean the two couldn't share a laugh comparing injury stories!

Ch-ch-check out the video (below) to hear how Seacrest injured his hand, and why he's comparing himself to Fallon:

See, it can be tough being on vacation -- especially when you have one of those swanky celeb suites! LOLz!!

Seacrest even snapped a picture of his hand on Twitter before-hand, so you've gotta hand it to the handsome host:

At least both hosts are A-OK, and everybody is healthy enough to laugh about it now!

You Won’t Believe What Harry Styles Said When Asked If He’s Going Solo!

Ever since Zayn Malik left the band, everyone has been putting bets on the next member to leave One Direction.

The biggest contender? Mr. Harry Styles -- and it's not even a surprising choice!

Hazzah has always been favored to go solo. He's easily the one girls swoon over the most and he's often on his own writing or writing for other artists like Ariana Grande or Meghan Trainor.

With all of that being said, Ryan Seacrest was chatting with HareBear on Thursday morning and just HAD to ask him about the rumors of going solo!

What did the 21-year-old have to say about that?? Harry said:

"We have the album and the tour that we're working on right now. I think when you have so many goals that you feel like you have yet to achieve, it's hard to kind of see past those. It's important to kind of focus on what's going on and don't kind of lose track. So we're all working hard towards the same thing right now, and I don't think we're thinking much past that. I think we're just having a lot of fun and we're working hard and we're having a good time."

Sounds like he's not looking too far into the future yet, so plans of going singular aren't on his mind at all??

Hm, that's something we don't believe, but hey! 1D as a collective have said before that they're happy touring together.

[ Related: Is Zayn Returning To One Direction?! ]

We're sure going solo is inevitable, but let's just enjoy the time we have with all four of them together. As we've learned a couple of months ago, group time is precious!!

15 Top Reality TV Salaries: Who’s Making the Biggest Bucks Just For Being Themselves?

They may get criticized for lacking talent or offering up fraudulent versions of their lives and personalities, but the reality TV stars who help score the big ratings also bring in the big bucks.

Kris Jenner and her brood just earned $100 million for four more seasons of Keeping Up With the Kadashians. The imprisoned Teresa Giudice made $700,000 for her final year of filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey. 

Not bad salaries for a bunch of non-college grads who can't sing, act, dance or play sports, but you know what's really shocking?None of those folks are even in the top five when it comes to reality show earners.

Check out the list below to see who's really getting rich from what's arguably America's favorite kind of entertainment:

 

15. Simon Cowell

Simon cowell smiles
Cowell raked in a cool $95 million a year for his final seasons on American Idol. Sometimes being a jerk can really pay off. Of course, Cowell is also a producer and co-creator of the former hit series, so he didn't earn that cash JUST from tearing people down.

14. Howard Stern

Divisive personalities do well on the reality stage and Stern has earned $15 by becoming an unlikely favorite amongst contestants and viewers alike on America's Got Talent. Of course, the show is just one of many revenue streams for the King of All Media.

13. Ryan Seacrest

Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood aren't the only ones who got rich off of American Idol. After earning $15 million every season since 2009, Ryan Seacrest is no doubt sad to see the series come to an end.

12. Christina Aguilera

X-Tina comes and goes from her judges' seat on The Voice, but that doesn't seem to be affecting her earnings. The pop star brings in a reported $12.5 million for each season as a judge/coach.

11. Adam Levine

Allowing a camera crew to document your life is all well and good, but the real money is in evaluating talent. Sources say Adam Levine pulls in between $10 and $12 million as one of the chair-spinning A-listers on The Voice.

10. The Kardashians

Keeping up with the kardashians promo pic season 9
The K-Clan pulls in about $25 million a season, which sounds like a lot, until you remember how many ways they have to split it. Kim is the family's top earner (obviously) pulling an estimated $18 million a year from her shows, product lines and endorsements.
