(DAILY MAIL) — A series of racy emails have emerged that were purportedly sent by news pundit Scottie Nell Hughes to Fox Business host Charles Payne during their three-year affair.

The emails come amid accusations by Hughes that Payne sexually harassed her and coerced her into the relationship with threats of reprisals – claims he denies.

Fox have suspended Payne in light of the allegations, but he says her claims are an ‘ugly lie’.
