Accusations of sexual harassment from a former Fox News contributor are "100% false and a complete fabrication," according to Fox News commentator Sean Hannity.

Debbie Schlussel said in an interview with Tulsa, Oklahoma, radio station KFAQ that Hannity repeatedly asked her to come with him to his hotel during a book signing event and a broadcast of his radio show in Detroit.

She claims Hannity called her after the show and yelled at her. "It was made clear to me that I didn't go back to his hotel with him after," Schlussel said.

In a statement to the New York Daily News, Hannity said Schlussel has been lying about him for more than a decade "in an effort to slander, smear and besmirch" his reputation.

In an interview with on Monday morning, Schlussel is denying that she was ever sexually harassed by Sean Hannity.

While Schlussel stands by her description of the incident, Schlussel said she doesn’t believe what happened between the two amounted to sexual harassment by any legal definition.
