Fired Fox News host Bill O’Reilly made a $32 million settlement to a woman who accused him of sexual harassment one month before the network re-upped his contract, reports The New York Times.

According to the report, two people briefed on the matter said 21st Century Fox — the parent company of Fox News — were aware of the complaint and settlement made by O’Reilly, which had been brought against the anchor by a Fox analyst.

The complaint alleged O’Reilly engaged in a pattern of sexual harassment and a non-consensual sexual relationship and was settled for $32 million in January.

According to the report, 21st Century Fox nonetheless offered a four-year contract extension worth $25 million to O’Reilly in February of this year — only for the now-former ex-Fox to be ushered out the door in April.
