Former actress Jodie Fisher wants to set the record straight on her involvement in the resignation of Hewlett Packard‘s C.E.O. Mark Hurd.
Fisher, who also worked in the computer company’s marketing department, was recently identified as the source who came forward and made sexual harassment claims about the head honcho. However she wants everyone to know that she never meant for any of it to go this far.
“I was surprised and saddened that Mark lost his job over this. That was never my intention. … Mark and I never had an affair or intimate sexual relationship. I first met Mark in 2007 when I interviewed for a contractor job at the company. At HP, I was under contract to work at high-level customer and executive summit events held around the country and abroad. I prepared for those events, worked very hard and enjoyed working for HP. I have resolved my claim with Mark privately, without litigation, and I do not intend to comment on it further. I wish Mark, his family and HP the best,” Jodie told press in a statement released by her attorney Gloria Allred.
We really don’t see how she’s so sad over this when she’s the one who made the allegations…but oh well!
