Henson says that her remarks to Seacrest were “misconstrued.”
I did it to keep his chin up. It’s an awkward position to be in. He’s been cleared but anyone can say anything.
When asked whether she was supporting the E! host, Henson replied
Later, Seacrest addressed the situation on Twitter, writing that he had “nothing but love for his friend”

Henson’s close friend, Mary J. Blige, also says she supports Seacrest. The Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominee said that he is
fighting for his life right now.
She also admitted that she loves Seacrest and that she doesn’t know the whole truth of what happened. As previously reported, The E! host has been accused of sexual misconduct by his former personal stylist. He’s denied the allegations.
