Waffle House CEO: Forced Sex Claims False

But Joe Rogers said he did have "infrequent consensual sexual encounters" with his housekeeper, who is from Acworth.

Waffle House CEO Joe W. Rogers Jr. late Tuesday acknowledged a nearly 8-year consensual sexual relationship with his former housekeeper, but denied the Acworth woman's allegations of forced sex as a condition of employment.

In a statement sent to various media outlets, he accused the woman of trying to extort "millions of dollars" from him.

Last week, the Atlanta Police Department said it was investigating allegations that Rogers repeatedly forced the woman to perform sex acts on him during her time as Rogers' personal assistant.

Patch does not usually identify people who claim to be victims of sexual harassment or assault. But the Marietta Daily Journal, which first reported the investigation, identifed the assistant as Mye Brooke Brindle, 43, of Acworth.

More than two months after Brindle resigned in June, Rogers sued her on Sept. 14 in Cobb County Superior Court. Brindle countered with a suit of her own on Sept. 19 in Fulton County State Court. Both suits are sealed, according to the MDJ.

A hearing on the Cobb County lawsuit is scheduled for today, according to the Associated Press.
