Rachel Witlieb Bernstein, one of the six women who reportedly settled with Bill O'Reilly for sexual harassment, sued the former Fox News host on Monday.

When the New York Times published its story about O'Reilly, the cable news network's parent company responded, "Notwithstanding the fact that no current or former Fox News employee ever took advantage of the 21st Century Fox hotline to raise a concern about Bill O'Reilly, even anonymously, we have looked into these matters over the last few months and discussed them with Mr. O'Reilly".

As a result of the statements made by O'Reilly and the Fox News, Bernstein stated that she suffered reputational harm, emotional distress, physical sickness and loss of income, states the suit. While O'Reilly has denied all sexual harassment allegations, he allegedly entered five secret settlements with victims, according to The New York Times.

Bernstein complained in 2002 that she was mistreated by O'Reilly when she worked for the network, and ultimately reached a settlement agreement with the network.

"He's gone far beyond that and painted our client in a bad light", lawyer Neil Mullin told WaPo, claiming that O'Reilly violated the 2002 settlement case by implying that Bernstein's claims were politically motivated, Variety reported.

"In fact, Ms. Bernstein repeatedly complained to Fox Human Resources, Bill Shine, and other Fox executives, about Mr. O'Reilly's mistreatment and both defendant Fox News Network LLC and O'Reilly knew that before making the statements above", the complaint says. In her lawsuit, Bernstein pushed back against O'Reilly's narrative. Her story was among those included in the New York Times report, although her suit said she was not the source of the information.
