Dylan Howard, the top editor for National Enquirer and US Weekly, was investigated in 2012 after a string of accusations that he sexually harassed women at work, making explicit comments about female co-workers and forcing employees to watch porn in the office, according to a report out Tuesday.

The investigation into Howard was launched after two female employees complained of his behavior while he managed the Los Angeles-based office, The Associated Press reported.

Howard is currently the chief content officer of American Media Inc.

"American Media Inc. takes any claims of workplace harassment very seriously," the company said in a statement provided to Fox News. "After a thorough review by a third party investigator, American Media stands by the findings of that investigation. We welcomed Mr. Howard back to AMI in 2012, and since that time he has continued to have the respect of his peers and colleagues, and has been promoted to his current position as Chief Content Officer. In the wake of these baseless allegations, he has the full support of AMI and its executives."

The Associated Press interviewed 12 women with knowledge of the situation. Ten of the women remained anonymous because of nondisclosure agreements, which were reportedly a common practice upon leaving the company.

Maxine “Max” Page told the AP that she reported Howard’s behavior on behalf of two other women in the office.

According to Page and six other ex-employees, Howard told colleagues in the newsroom he wanted to create a Facebook account on behalf of a woman’s vagina, commented on her sex life and forced her and other women at work either to watch or to listen to graphic recordings of sex involving celebrities despite there being no professional rationale for doing so.

Dylan Howard , editor -in-chief of the National Enquirer , has been accused of sexual misconduct , including talking about female employees' sex lives and forcing women to watch or listen to porn. Much of Howard 's alleged misconduct stems from his time running the company's Los Angeles office.

Former employees say Dylan Howard forced women to watch pornographic material and encouraged them to have sex with sources. The top editor of several popular tabloids, including the National Enquirer and Us Weekly, has been accused of sexual misconduct , The Associated Press reported

Howard also reportedly claimed in a meeting that the same woman had had sex with one of her sources, which he allegedly praised saying she needed to “do what you need” to get a story.

The woman at the center of the allegation confirmed the incident, and others, to the AP but did not want to be identified.

Page and others also claimed that Howard talked about his own sexual encounters, including descriptions of his partners’ physical attributes. He also reportedly nicknamed himself after a phallic sex toy, one person said.

Another former employee, Liz Crokin, claimed Howard harassed her, including once when he asked whether she was “going to be walking the streets tonight” because she was wearing heels at work.

It was not clear whether Howard faced any discipline over the accusations. The AP reported it was not aware of any sexual harassment allegations involving Howard since he was rehired.

In a brief phone interview with the AP, Howard characterized the ex-employees' claims as "baseless."

The company’s lawyer, Cam Stracher, told the AP that the firm had hired an outside team to investigate the claims but it was ultimately decided that the behavior didn’t warrant firing Howard.

"It was determined that there was some what you would call as horsing around outside the office, going to bars and things that are not uncommon in the media business," Stracher said.

The investigators also confirmed that they’d filed the report.

Howard quit soon after the report was completed, but the company rehired him one year later with a promotion that landed him in the company's main office in New York.

Stracher said Howard was “cautioned when he returned that” the behavior described “as horsing around was not appropriate,” he said.
