A statement released by Allison Gullust which has been widely criticized reads:
“Jeff and I have been close friends and professional partners for over 20 years. Recently, our relationship changed during COVID. I regret that we didn’t disclose it at the right time,”
Former CNN employees and media industry insiders have suggested that Zucker and Gollust have been in a consensual relationship for years and she lied in the press statement.
Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien in a response to Gollust’s statement tweeted:
“I encourage you to google the two parties and read the details about their relationship that dates back years. That said, I’m sure company emails can easily determine if she’s lying in this statement. Again—It was an open secret and I haven’t even worked there for like 8 years,”
