Ousted CNN Host Chris Cuomo Demanding $60 Million Settlement From Network

Former CNN host Chris Cuomo is demanding a massive $60 million payout from his former employer in the wake of the scandal that brought down former network president Jeff Zucker.

Cuomo’s unfinished contract with CNN was for just $18 million, but now he wants three times that much.

Many people are speculating that Cuomo has some dirt on CNN that would make things even worse for them if they don’t give him what he is demanding.

The New York Post’s Page Six reports:

Multiple sources tell Page Six that Cuomo — who was fired in December for helping his brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, fend off sexual harassment allegations — is ready to dig his heels in by claiming that Zucker not only knew about his dealings with the governor, but that the network boss had his own inappropriate dealings with Andrew.

And he is prepared to demand not the $18 million left on his contract, but as much as $60 million.

“He wants Megyn Kelly money,” we’re told.

One source said: “Chris insists he never did anything for his brother Andrew that Zucker didn’t know about.

“His camp believes Zucker wasn’t fired for an inappropriate relationship with Allison Gollust. Everybody knew about that and nobody cared.

Things have been bad for CNN for the last few weeks but it could get even worse.
