Jemele Hill, who is now employed under The Undefeated brand with ESPN after being an SC:6 anchor with Michael Smith, has denied that that legendary ESPN anchor Chris Berman left his a “racially disparaging” voicemail to her in 2016.

She admitted that the two did have a conflict. However, she said it was resolved professionally.

“[She said Berman] never left any racially disparaging remarks on my voicemail,” she said.

In addition to Hill, ESPN has also denied the claims. The lawsuit, which was made by former ESPN legal analyst Adrienne Lawrence, alleged that Berman made the racially disparaging voicemail to Hill.

“A few years ago, I had a personal conflict with Chris Berman, but the way this conflict has been characterized is dangerously inaccurate,” Hill said. “Chris never left any racially disparaging remarks on my voicemail and our conflict was handled swiftly and with the utmost professionalism.”

The lawsuit, which was part of a 93-Page complaint, against the World Wide Leader in Sports. It was a sexual harassment lawsuit filed on Sunday in Connecticut in U.S. District Country.

Lawrence alleges that ESPN has a toxic work environment for women. The former legal analyst was part of a two-year fellowship program.

She also made previous claims regarding ESPN anchor John Buccigross. She said ESPN let her go after rejecting his advances — and she believes she was let go after talking to Buccigross.
