Bobbie Phillips is an actress and one of the multiple women accusing TV exec Les Moonves of sexual assault.
Bobbie has come forward accusing the disgraced former CEO, claiming in a NY Times article that she was also one of his victims back in the mid-90’s.
As you may have heard, at least 12 women have come forward accusing the 69-year-old. Back in July the New Yorker published an article where six women accused Moonves of harassment and intimidation. In September another six women had raised accusations against him. As a result Moonves stepped down from his role as CEO of CBS that same month.
Bobbie’s accusations not only shine new light into Moonves but it also adds a new component. According to the stunning actress, Moonves tried to hush her up years later by helping to line up casting opportunities.
Bobbie Phillips told The New York Times, when she was 25, she signed with Hollywood agent Marv Dauer. In 1995, Dauer arranged for Phillips to meet Moonves, then the president of Warner Bros. Television. The two wound up meeting at the Warner Bros. studio on March 7 of that year. It was there that Phillips says the attack took place. According to Bobbie, Moonves forced her to perform oral sex.
When her agent asked how it went, she told him that Moonves had ‘violated her.’
Moonves said in a statement to the Times, “I strongly believe that the sexual encounter with Ms. Phillips more than 20 years ago was consensual.” Bobbie’s story could potentially ruin the $120 million exit deal Moonves has with CBS. He is said to receive the money upon completion of CBS’s internal investigation.
