Republic Records president out amid sexual misconduct probe

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Republic Records president Charlie Walk is leaving the company in the wake of a sexual misconduct investigation.

Republic, a subsidiary of Universal Music Group, said in a short statement Wednesday that “Republic Records and Charlie Walk have mutually agreed to part ways.”

Walk had been on leave since late January.

The company hired an independent law firm to investigate. Nothing was revealed Wednesday about its findings.

Former employee Tristan Coopersmith said Walk regularly made lewd comments to her when she worked for him at Columbia Records. She also said he put his hand on her thigh and once pushed her onto a bed.

Walk denied the allegations and said in a statement that “there has been an extreme rush to judgment against me.”
