Networks investigating Neil deGrasse Tyson over sexual misconduct claims

Famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is under fire this weekend, facing serious new allegations of sexual misconduct from two different women.

A year ago a musician claimed that deGrasse Tyson raped her when they were both graduate students.

"We have only just become aware of the recent allegations regarding Neil deGrasse Tyson", they wrote, adding that they "take these matters very seriously" and were now "reviewing the recent reports". He later spoke about how all people needed "release" and asked what hers was. She claims he grabbed her arm and followed the planets into her dress.

Tyson does issue apology for his behavior regarding the woman with the astronomical tattoo, saying "I only just learned (nine years after) that she thought this behavior creepy".

Watson claims she left Tyson's employ because of inappropriate behavior, including "misogynistic comments" and remarks about women's weight. After he apologized profusely, the woman said that would be her last day working there. She agreed to meet him for a glass of wine, feeling she really couldn't tell her boss a flat no on the invitation. She recalls that he had taken off his shoes and was wearing a tank top.

"For a variety of reasons, most justified, some unjustified, men accused of sexual impropriety in today's "me-too" climate are presumed to be guilty by the court of public opinion". He reportedly mentioned how hard it had been for him to be away from home for several months. She told a supervisor about the alleged incident, and later quit. It was a smart way to diffuse a tense situation, but she says he was unfazed...

Wilder retains WBC heavyweight belt after battling to draw against Fury
Former two-weight world champion Andre Ward wrote on Twitter: "A draw, I understand (even tho I feel Fury won by a 2 or 3 rds)". With just two minutes left in the fight, a vicious right-left combination from Wilder left Fury flat on his back.

The next night, however, in the auto, she says that Tyson told her that she was too "distracting" to work as a producer.

Watson provided The Post with a text describing the incident she sent to a friend several days later.

CNN has reached out to both networks for comment.

Tyson also goes into detail about his relationship with Amet, whose accusations he says are as if "a false memory had been implanted, which, because it never actually happened, had to be remembered as an evening she doesn't remember". Patheos published an update on that allegation earlier this month including a recorded phone interview with Amet.

Later, as she was leaving, she says Tyson said he wanted to show her a Native American handshake that involved feeling each other's pulses and staring into each other's eyes to make a spiritual connection. She told me she was at his apartment when he offered her water, and the next thing she remembered was waking up to an assault.
