Vince McMahon hurled with more allegations
The Wall Street Journal recently posted another story on Vince McMahon and this one alleges that McMahon paid $12 million in hush money to four women in the past 16 years to suppress allegations of sexual misconduct and infidelity. This amount is a lot more than was previously known.
The outlet has also reported that the payouts went to women formerly affiliated with WWE and they all signed agreements that prevented them from discussing potential legal claims or their relationships with him.
The story notes that there was a $7.5 million pact with a former wrestler who alleged that McMahon forced her into giving her oral sex and then demoted her and then declined to renew her contract in 2005 after she resisted more sexual encounters. The news outlet has further reported that the wrestler and her attorney approached McMahon in 2018 to negotiate a payment in return for her silence. They reported that a WWE contractor presented the company with unsolicited nude photos of McMahon that she reportedly received from him and McMahon agreed to pay this person $1 million.
