A month ago, the cable network announced that an independent investigator hired to look into Hardy's claims found "insufficient evidence" of wrongdoing on Seacrest's part. In November 2017, news broke that a former E! wardrobe stylist claimed that he behaved inappropriately towards her, though we learned this in a statement Seacrest released ahead of any public accusation.

The cabler, however, won't confirm the delay, instead insisting it's "business as usual" on the carpet.

The network made a decision to keep Seacrest as the host of the red carpet special, to which Hardy responded by standing by her story.

News say it has spoken to a hardy co-worker who says he witnessed the alleged harassment. 'I am not a judge.

Kelly had fans convinced things were going well between the two despite everything during their show on Thursday, March 1, when she told him she couldn't wait to see him at the Oscars on Sunday. "I am not a jury ... that is where this stuff gets tricky".
