A.J. Calloway Officially Out At 'Extra' After Sexual Assault Allegations

A.J. Calloway is officially out at Extra after allegations of sexual assault and other forms of misconduct. Extra‘s parent company, Warner Bros, has parted ways with the television personality.

“The Company has investigated the claims made into Mr. Calloway’s conduct and he and the Company have mutually agreed to part ways,” said a statement from Warner Bros obtained by multiple outlets including Deadline.

The Extra host was previously suspended for months after author and domestic-violence activist Sil Lai Abrams came forward last June, accusing him of sexual assault in 2006. Calloway was accused of similar behavior by two more women in a January 2019 article from The Daily Beast, which seemingly prompted further investigation after Abrams’ accusations were published. The new Deadline report says that their sources suggest that Calloway was on paid suspension during this time prior to Warner Bros officially parting ways.

At that time of suspension, the former 106 & Park host denied all wrongdoing despite the mounting accusations. He had been with Extra since 2006.
