Amber Harrison ‘driven’ to Twitter over Seven sex scandal

AMBER Harrison, the ex-mistress of Seven West Media CEO Tim Worner, has joined Twitter, saying she's been "driven" to the social media platform by her former bosses.

And she's singing like a bird, saying her Twitter campaign comes after fresh legal moves to silence her. "You want evidence?" she asks. She's happy to provide hers.

Many posts target Seven board member and former Victorian premier Jeff Kennett, following comments he made at the weekend that he was "disappointed" Ms Harrison "continues to defame some of Channel Seven's employees" in the wake of the sex scandal with the married Mr Worner.

Speaking after Seven West Media's statement to the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) that an independent investigation had cleared Mr Worner of corporate misconduct, Mr Kennett told The Weekend Australian he was "confident" the board's review ­established "beyond doubt" that a series of ­explosive allegations could not be substantiated.

"Do you want evidence Jeff? I've got evidence ..." Ms Harrison says in one of her Twitter posts, tagging Mr Kennett.

Ms Harrison labelled Seven's investigation and resulting report a "whitewash" on Friday, and vowed to fight on.

"Channel Seven demands my silence under legalities of two contracts they won't honour so instead I've joined Twitter to chat to Jeff Kennett," Ms Harrison's profile states.

"Bullied. Harassed. Silenced, 300+ legal letters. Wanna see them @jeff_kennett? Does @beyondblue support selective compassion? Elective empathy?" she says in another tweet, tagging the Beyond Blue national health initiative, which Mr Kennett chairs.

Ms Harrison has also posted copies of documents and receipts she says support her allegations - "evidence" she claims were ignored when she presented them.

They include images of receipts she says she put on her company credit card and Seven claimed was "inappropriate spending".

The purchases included two red office chairs - one of which Mr Worner is pictured using in another photo she has posted.

She also posted images of taxi receipts she says show Mr Worner's trips from Seven offices in Pyrmont to her house.

She has also posted other documents relating to her claims she was forced out of Channel Seven after an investigation into spending on her corporate credit card.

Ms Harrison also filed complaints to Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), accusing Seven West Media of releasing "a factually incorrect statement to market" and "trading on this incorrect information".

Seven's summary to the ASX cleared Mr Worner of misconduct concerning the payment of a $10,000 bonus to Ms Harrison, alleged relationships with other female staff, allegations of drug use, corporate credit card expenditure and the way Seven dealt with Ms Harrison being managed out of the business after being paid off with $100,000 that was deducted from Mr Worner's 2014 company bonus.

Ms Harrison asked why Seven West Media's board saw "no need to investigate shareholder millions wasted on pointless 2 year war of law vs. me?" in another Twitter post.

Seven West Media's half-yearly results are due to be presented by Mr Worner to shareholders on February 15.

Seven declined to comment, referring back to it's statement to the ASX on Friday, which said: "This has been a tumultuous time for the entire company and with the receipt of the independent review this matter can now be brought to a conclusion".

"The Board has addressed all the issues that have been raised and is confident that Mr Worner will continue to run the company in the interests of all shareholders."
