LOS ANGELES (AP) _ AMC Networks says Chris Hardwick’s talk show is on hold and he has withdrawn as moderator of AMC and BBC America’s Comic-Con panels.

The media company said that it’s had a positive relationship with Hardwick but takes seriously what it calls “troubling” allegations against the host and producer.

Hardwick’s former girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra, lodged a sexual assault claim against a man whom she didn’t identify in an online post.

But she included details that led some to link the allegations to Hardwick.

In a statement Saturday to The Associated Press, Hardwick denied assaulting Dykstra. He said he was “heartbroken” by her claims, saying he was supportive of her.

AMC Networks said “Talking with Chris Hardwick” won’t air on AMC while it assesses the situation.
