New York magazine's Gabriel Sherman reported Tuesday that Fox News star Megyn Kelly has accused the network's chairman of sexual harassment.

The blockbuster report comes on the heels of Sherman's Monday story, citing sources at Fox News's parent company, indicating Roger Ailes was soon to be fired.

The decision to remove Ailes in the coming weeks was the result of misconduct discovered after a legal review of his actions in the wake of claims made by former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson. 

Carlson has filed suit in New Jersey Superior Court claiming the Fox News chairman requested they sleep together for favorable treatment.

But it was unclear as to the immediate cause motivating Ailes pending dismissal, New York said, "until now."

New York reported the bombshell revelation:

"According to two sources briefed on parent company 21st Century Fox's outside probe of the Fox News executive, led by New York–based law firm Paul, Weiss, Kelly has told investigators that Ailes made unwanted sexual advances toward her about ten years ago when she was a young correspondent at Fox. Kelly, according to the sources, has described her harassment by Ailes in detail."

21st Century Fox executives have told Ailes to quit by Aug. 1 or be fired, according to the report.

Ailes has hired lawyer Susan Estrich, Michael Dukakis' former presidential campaign manager, to head up his defense strategy.

New York also claims Ailes has turned to Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani for advice on the widening scandal.

New York said Fox and its parent company, as well as Kelly, declined to comment for the story.

Since the Carlson suit filed in June, nine women have accused Ailes of sexual harassment during his five decades as a media and entertainment executive.
