This week, rap star 50 Cent acknowledged the reporter’s current media nightmare.
A few days ago, a woman came forward to accuse Touré of multiple past workplace sexual harassment encounters.
In the post, a make-up artist, who goes by the name ‘Dani,’ alleged that Touré sexually harassed her while she worked with him on a show, saying, “He couldn’t stop asking me to do anal, how I looked naked, if I had sex over the weekend, what it would be like to f–k me.” Dani then states that she would make sure to have crew members in the room with her while she got him ready for the People/Entertainment Weekly show. Eventually, Dani quit but allegedly reported Touré to human resources and according to her account, he was immediately fired. (ESSENCE)

The woman also came forward and provided details on their past working relationship.
“I worked with him most of 2017, I left in October, before he left,” she claims. After Dani quit, she says she reported Toure´ to human resources. He left Time after that; according to his rep because his agreement was over. … He went on [radio station] Hot 97 to talk about Harvey Weinstein (after he apologized). I accepted his apology and was ok to move on but, you can’t be a sexual predator and go around shaming other predators.” (ESSENCE)
