Numerous sources have confirmed to NewsChannel 5 that publicist Kirt Webster is back at work after months of silence following sexual misconduct allegations.

Webster is allegedly working with Strategic Brand Alliance, a company that has no website or address, but was listed as "Project Management" on Larry's Country Diner's website.

NewsChannel 5 reached out to representatives with Larry's Country Diner, and they said they have "no current professional relationship with Kirt Webster or Strategic Brand Alliance" despite the company being listed on their website as Project Management.

Within an hour of the inquiry, Strategic Brand Alliance was removed from the Larry's Country Diner website, and Larry Black sent a statement saying he was friends with Kirt Webster, but there was no formal business arrangement with the publicist.

This all comes after Austin Rick, a former Country Music artist, came forward earlier this year with sexual misconduct allegations against Webster.

Following that allegation, many others, including former employees, spoke out against Webster and the way he ran his office and conducted business.

No charges have ever been brought against Webster, but many pledged to never work with him again if he re-entered the music industry.

As for Webster, he said he's out of town and hasn't announced any projects, and he sent a statement that said the following: 

"I am a friend of Larry Black's and he has remained a friend of mine. Just like all the previous reporting over the past 6 months, you can't believe everything you hear or read." 

We'll update this story as we get more information.
