Warner Bros. Television has dismissed “Extra” host A.J. Calloway following the studio’s investigation into sexual assault allegations against the American TV personality.
The company said it decided to part ways with Calloway, 44, after investigating the claims against him, according to a statement obtained by Variety. The statement said it was a “mutual” decision by Warner Bros. and Calloway.
A Warners rep in the statement, said : “The company has investigated the claims made into Mr. Calloway’s conduct and he and the company have mutually agreed to part ways.”
This comes after Warner Bros. had previously suspended Calloway in February after the total number of women accusing Calloway of misconduct rose to six.
Back in 2006, the host was arrested after author and activist Sil Lai Abrams accused him of sexually assaulting her, but those charges were dropped. Last January, two women told the Daily Beast that Calloway had sexually assaulted them.
At that time, Calloway denied the accusations in a statement released through his attorney Lisa E. Davis. Calloway said in the statement, “As I have maintained from the beginning, these allegations are not true. When I was first notified about these allegations by law enforcement more than a decade ago, I fully cooperated from the beginning and the case was dismissed.”
