Ed Henry rape accuser Jennifer Eckhart’s legal team has released graphic text messages allegedly from Henry.
Many of these are very dark and seem like something from a BDSM script, including “F*ck you and your safe word. You will know when I am done” and “Whatever when you are owned you don’t get a choice.”
Mediaite reports explicit texts allegedly sent by former Fox News anchor Ed Henry to former Fox Business producer Jennifer Eckhart — who accused Henry of rape in a new lawsuit — were revealed this week as part of the legal action.
The lawsuit from Eckhart and journalist Cathy Areu, filed against Ed Henry and other current personalities at the cable news network, included screenshots of the messages Henry allegedly sent to Eckhart. They included, “Fuck you and your safe word… You will know when i am done,” “When u r owned U dont get a ‘Choice’,” “Gona make you my little whore again,” “Owned & submissive… More anal,” and “Good long session last time… Left you bruised batter dazed sated begging for more.”
The messages and accusations were so graphic that the lawsuit contained a “trigger warning” at the top.
According to the lawsuit, “Mr. Henry, approximately twice Ms. Eckhart’s age, preyed upon, manipulated and groomed Ms. Eckhart starting at the young age of 24, by exerting his abuse of power over her and her career.”
“Mr. Henry not only leveraged this imbalance of power for control over his victim, Ms. Eckhart, but asked her to be his ‘sex slave’ and his ‘little whore,’ and threatened punishment and retaliation if Ms. Eckhart did not comply with his sexual demands,” the lawsuit alleged, claiming Henry “sexually assaulted her on office property, and raped her at a hotel where Fox News frequently lodged its visiting employees.”
