The Daily Beast reports that Gary Busey allegedly sexually assaulted a female employee during his time on “The Celebrity Apprentice” in 2011. Multiple employees, including the victim, told the publication that Busey “grabbed” the woman “firmly between [the] legs,” as well as her breasts, and forced the staffer to place her hand on the crotch of his pants. The incident is said to have taken place during a shoot in SoHo where the contestants were given the challenge of selling art to a gallery.
The alleged assault reportedly caused havoc on set and employees called for Busey to be removed from the show. Multiple sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the non-disclosure agreements they signed, confirmed to the website that producers and management were made aware of the assault, as was Donald Trump. Five employees of the NBC reality show told The Daily Beast that Trump laughed off the assault and allowed Busey to remain as a contestant.
