Longtime WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon is in extremely hot water after it was revealed he had paid four women more than $12 million to suppress allegations of sexual misconduct and infidelity.
The Wall Street Journal reported that McMahon allegedly:
*Paid $1 million in 2006 to a former manager who was allegedly in a sexual relationship with him
*Paid $1 million in 2008 to a contractor who claimed McMahon sent her unsolicited nude photos, and also claimed he sexually harassed her.
*Paid $7.5 million in 2018 to a former wrestler who claimed that he pressured her into giving him oral sex, and then demoted her and declined to renew her contract in 2005. The Journal reported that WWE's board was investigating the agreement.
*Paid $3 million to a former paralegal he allegedly had a sexual relationship with, which was previously reported by the Journal last month. The Journal reported that WWE's board was also investigating this agreement.
