The WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon is accused of having a past affair with a former employee. Vince McMahon is under investigation by World Wrestling Entertainment’s board for alleged secret $3 million hush-money settlement to the former employee.
Vince has been married to his wife Linda since 1966.
The WWE board found out about the recent $3 million agreement after receiving a series of anonymous emails from someone claiming to be a friend of the woman, who allegedly had an affair with Vince. The emails also uncovered that the promoter hired the woman as a paralegal at a $100,000 salary, then bumped her pay up to $200,000 after they began having a sexual relationship.
According to the Journal, the preliminary investigation shows McMahon made a payment using “personal funds.”
As for WWE, the company told WSJ they’re fully cooperating with the board’s investigation, and added the relationship with the woman was consensual
