Former Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly paid $32 million to settle a sexual harassment claim a month before Fox News extended his contract, The New York Times reported Saturday.

Two people briefed on the matter told the Times that 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, knew about the complaints against O’Reilly, which were brought by Fox analyst Lis Wiehl.

The complaint contained allegations of sexual harassment and a nonconsensual sexual relationship with O’Reilly, among other allegations, and was settled for $32 million in January, the Times said.
