The 90th Academy Awards was supposed to be a good night for Ryan Seacrest. However, things didn’t pan out the way they would have a few months ago considering the recent claims of sexual misconduct against him.
Celebrity Insider reported earlier in the week that Ryan was fighting back against the charges from his former stylist who claims he acted inappropriately toward her on several occasions.
Ryan made his way on to the red carpet last night to report on the event, but according to a source who spoke with E! News, some people strategically avoided discussion with the former American Idol host, possibly due to the allegations.
A source explained, “Seacrest was kind of uncomfortable with the attention. He just wanted to do his job but felt uncomfortable with the way he was scrutinized.”
In the past, A-listers would line up the front door to chat with the American Idol alum, but this year, there was no line to be seen. Be that as it may, another source claimed there wasn’t a lot of stars on the red carpet in the first hour either way.
One insider shared, “people came late.” Furthermore, many people did their interviews in another location, not on the red carpet. With that said, not every person was aversive to the Live With Kelly And Ryan host.
One individual who was kind to Ryan included Mary J Blige, who showed her support for him and praised his appearances on his and Kelly’s TV show.
A source explained, “that made Ryan feel good in that moment because he was feeling pretty ostracized and left out.”
As described at the beginning of the article, Ryan’s former stylist, Suzie Hardy, claimed Ryan sexually harassed her on multiple occasions, a charge the host vehemently denied. Despite all of the negative press, Ryan is still doing well and is keeping his head up.
