A.J. Calloway Officially Out at Extra After Sexual Assault Investigation

The host was suspended in February after accusations from multiple women

Malcolm Venable

Warner Bros. Television has formally terminated its relationship with Extrahost A.J. Calloway after an investigation into numerous allegations of sexual assault, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"The company has investigated the claims made into Mr. Calloway's conduct, and he and the company have mutually agreed to part ways," a Warner Bros. rep told THR in a statement. It is unclear when Warners severed ties with Calloway.

A representative for Warners and Calloway's attorney did not immediately return TV Guide's requests for comment, but Calloway has previously denied all wrongdoing.

The news comes nearly six months after Extra suspended Calloway in February, just as THR was about to publish a story detailing accusations from several women who said Calloway sexually assaulted them, including three alleged rapes. The THR story was followed by a Calloway had been on Extra for 14 years.

In June of 2018, writer Sil Lai Abrams said in a lengthy profile in The Hollywood Reporter that Calloway assaulted her in 2006, leading to an arrest that was later dropped on procedural grounds. Abrams claimed the former 106 & Park host tried to force her head onto his penis, and when she refused, grabbed her hand and used it to masturbate. In a statement provided to TV Guide in June, Calloway denied the allegations, saying he was "disappointed to read the false allegations about me in The Hollywood Reporter ... I intend to vigorously defend my reputation against these false accusations and will not let this cause further harm to my family." More accusers came forward in a Daily Beast article published in January 2019.

In a statement to THR, Abrams applauded Warner Bros. decision to terminate its relationship with Calloway. "Though it took to longer than it should have, the investigation apparently came to the right conclusion. If survivors have the strength to fight, know that there is value in staying the course," she said.
