'The Four' Judge Charlie Walk Accused of Sexual Harassment

Charlie Walk, the president of Republic Records and now a judge on Fox’s ‘The Four’ has been accused of sexual harassment by a former employee.

According to Tristan Coopersmith, Charlie repeatedly groped her, sent sexual texts, and ultimately forced her to give up her dreams of working in the music industry.

via TMZ:

The accuser, Tristan Coopersmith, claims Walk — currently prez of Republic Records — harassed her while they worked together at Sony Music. In an open letter, Tristan wrote, “For a year I shuddered at the idea of being called into your office, where you would stealthily close the door and make lewd comments about my body and share your fantasies of having sex with me. I was 27.”

She says she repeatedly reminded Walk, her boss at the time, he was married with kids, but claims it had no impact. Tristan claims Walk would grab her leg under the table dinner meetings … sometimes while his wife was sitting across from them.

She detailed one alleged encounter … “And then there was that event at your swank pad when you actually cornered me and pushed me into your bedroom and onto your bed. The bed you shared with your wife… your wife who was in the room next door. You being drunk and me being 6 inches taller was my saving grace.”

Tristan quit the music biz 8 years ago, and is now a psychotherapist. She posted the letter on her website. Tristan says she’s forgiven Walk and hopes he can change his ways.

This definitely not a good look for everyone over at ‘The Four’ — we’ll see if they allow him to stay on the show.
