What accusations were made against Tony Robbins?
In May 2019, Buzzfeed News published their investigation into Robbins.
The six-part article series featured accusations of sexual misconduct against Robbins by fans and people who had worked for him.
All of the alleged incidents were said to have taken place between the 1990s and the early 2000s.
Robbins was accused of pursuing two women after they turned him down, and two other accusers alleged that they were expected to work alone with Robbins while he was in his hotel room naked.
One woman claimed that, after having a consensual sexual relationship with the self help giant, she lost her job.
In total, ten women claimed that Robbins groped them, exposed himself, or sexually harassed them.
The report also claimed that Robbins reprimanded victims of rape and domestic violence and two former bodyguards claimed they were sent out to find attractive women for Tony in his audiences.
Robbins responded to the claims in an open letter to Buzzfeed.
He said: "Let me be clear, while my open-classroom therapeutic methods are not for everyone, and while I am on my best day still only an imperfect human being.
"I have never behaved in the reckless, irresponsible, or malicious manner intimated by false, unfounded, and incendiary allegations suggested by BuzzFeed story-tellers."
Just months later, in November 2019, BuzzFeed News then accused Robbins of molesting a teenage girl.
The claimed that the incident occurred during Tony's time as a "star speaker" at a summer camp in California in 1985.
