UPDATE: Sunday, 12 a.m. EDT — Fox News host Eric Bolling was suspended Saturday after an investigation into accusations that he sent lewd texts to multiple women colleagues began.

"Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway," a Fox News spokesperson told the International Business Times via email.

Following a report of Bolling’s alleged indiscretion, published by Huffington Post on Saturday, the latest episode of Bolling’s “Cashin’ In,” which typically airs on Saturdays, was replaced by a live half hour of news (America's News HQ). He will also be replaced by substitute hosts on “The Specialists.”

The investigation is being handled by Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, an international law firm headquartered on Sixth Avenue in New York City.

“The anonymous, uncorroborated claims are untrue and terribly unfair,” Michael Bowe, Bolling’s Lawyer said, BBC reported. “We intend to fully cooperate with the investigation so that it can be concluded and Eric can return to work as quickly as possible.”

Original Story:

Eric Bolling, 54, the co-host of a number of shows on the Fox News and Fox Business channel has been accused of sending inappropriate pictures to female colleagues, according to a report by the Huffington Post.

The news of Bolling’s reported indiscretion comes after former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes resigned last year following accusations of sexual harassment by former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson. After Ailes was ousted as the network’s head, CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota and other Fox News hosts have come forward, accusing him of similar indecencies.

Even though Bolling sent the lewd texts to his colleagues years ago, the news of the same surfaced Friday after the Huffington Post spoke to 14 internal sources at the network.

One of the recipients revealed she had received pictures of male genitalia sent from a number that belonged to Bolling. She reached out to him requesting him to stop sending her such pictures. However, Bolling did not reply back.

Apart from the recipients themselves, four other people have borne witness to the indecent pictures and eight others said they were aware of the existence of texts.

A Fox spokesperson told the Huffington Post that they were unaware of the accusations until now and will be launching an investigation into the same. On the other hand, Bolling’s lawyer Michael J. Bowe said his client has no recollections of sending any lewd texts to his female colleagues.

“Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made,” Bowe said.

Born March 2, 1963, in Chicago, Bolling graduated from Rollins College in Florida with a degree of Bachelor of Arts in economics. Thereafter, he got a fellowship to study at Duke’s University School of Public Policy.

Bolling began his career as a commodities trader in the Mercantile Exchange Market in New York. He mainly traded in natural gas, gold, crude oil and other commodities. Following his success, he was one of the masterminds behind the program ‘Fast Money’ at CNBC, Not Just Rich reported.

He moved on to work for Fox Business Network in August 2007. He currently hosts the Fox News show “Cashin' in.” In the past, he has served as a co-host of the evening talk show “The Five.”

Bolling's newest gig, which premiered on May 1, is “The Fox News Specialists” where he serves as a co-host along with Katherine Timpf and Eboni Williams. He has also appeared as a guest commentator on Fox News shows such as “O’Reilly Factor,” “Fox & Friends” and “Hannity.”

Bolling is married to Adrienne Bolling and has a son, Eric Chase Bolling. Eric Bolling has an estimated net worth of $15 million.

When a former New York congressman was accused of sending lewd texts to multiple women in May, Bolling said: “He is a sick human being, to continue to do this time and time again, continue to get caught, saying he’s not going to do it again, gets caught again.”

According to the Huffington Post, Bolling was also caught making misogynistic comments on air. In a September 2014 segment of “The Five,” Bolling joked regarding Maj Mariam Al Mansouri, the first woman fighter pilot from the United Arab Emirates who bombed the Islamic State group in Aleppo, Syria. He said whether he would be justifying in saying “boobs on the ground” instead of “boots on the ground.” Bolling apologized for his offensive joke later on.
