The letter includes allegations that Mr O’Reilly had called Ms Huddy repeatedly, the newspaper said.
““Juliet Huddy’s letter of intent to sue contained substantial falsehoods which were vehemently denied by Bill O’Reilly,” Fox News said in a statement.
The gossipy episode is the latest dispute to involve O’Reilly, who is never shy about speaking his mind and has over the years never hesitated to defend himself against an array of opponents.

He also invited her to his hotel room on one occasion, then appeared in his boxers when she went to return the room key he gave her after saying she wasn't interested in a sexual relationship with him, according to the reported letter.
