The WWE’s 12-member board is investigating a $3 million “hush pact” payment Vince McMahon paid a former employee after the pair allegedly had an affair.
According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, McMahon paid the woman, who was hired as a paralegal in 2019, $1 million up front with the remaining $2 million to be spread out over a five-year period.
WWE told the outlet they’re fully cooperating with the board’s investigation, and added the relationship with the woman was consensual.
So far a preliminary investigation found that the payments were made using “personal funds.”
Vince and Linda McMahon have been married since 1966.
