More Webster Accusers

A month after Nashville publicist Kirt Webster stepped down from his firm amid allegations of sexual harassment, more accusations have emerged.

Three ex-employees and two former interns have recently alleged further harassment and abuse on the job, according to The Tennessean, bringing the number of people who have alleged a toxic environment at Webster PR to 22.

A 26-year-old former employee said that Webster showed her gay pornography while at work and would ask her repeatedly in front of male coworkers if she was having sex with them, according to the paper, and once during a ride to a music awards show told her that he could see her genitals.

A former intern claims Webster would press him about his sex life and once followed him to a restroom to peer at him, among other allegations.  Another former intern who was transitioning from female to male claims Webster propositioned for sex during work hours.

Webster, who represented acts like Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers and Kid Rock, recently shuttered his publicity firm after an initial allegation of sexual misconduct turned into an avalanche of similar stories. Webster said he needed to take time off to combat the allegations, and has not communicated publicly since then. 

Meanwhile, with Webster’s main clients firing him, the firm has been closed.
