“I was so shocked, I was not able to get over it,” Theroux said.
“I was like, ‘I’m sorry.
I thought it was going to be a nice quiet day, like the other guys, but it wasn’t.
It was the most unbelievable thing I’ve ever been through in my life.
“Theroux said that he did “nothing” to help the disgraced co-host, who has been accused of inappropriate behaviour, but he was not willing to give up.”
It’s so upsetting.
I can’t believe that someone I had known for so long, a friend of mine, would do something like that to someone who I had a genuine relationship with, and it was so hurtful,” Therouxs said.”
We have talked about it.
It’s something I’ve dealt with for years.
I’ve spoken to [our lawyer] who has dealt with it for me and I know that Justin’s not going to do anything.
“Therouxs, who is currently on leave from his job in the entertainment industry, said he felt betrayed by the show and the women involved.”
When you do something for someone and they are the one who is going to get hurt, it’s just like you’re a bad person and they deserve it,” he said.
