(Before It's News)

With former Fox News boss Roger Ailes facing his own sexual harrassment scandal over the summer, some questioned his proximity to Donald Trump – now facing his own allegations – but as Vanity Fair claims the long-time allies have reportedly parted ways.

The former Fox News boss had reportedly served as an advisor to Trump throughout the campaign. He was said to have played a particularly important role as of late, helping him prepare for the presidential debates.

That’s all changed now, according to Sherman and Vanity Fair contributing editor Sarah Ellison.

The reason for the fallout depends on who you ask…

“Ailes’s camp said Ailes learned that Trump couldn’t focus—surprise, surprise—and that advising him was a waste of time,” Sherman said. “These debate prep sessions weren’t going anywhere.”

On the Trump side, Ellison said the story is different: “Even for the second debate, Ailes kept going off on tangents and talking about his war stories while he was supposed to be prepping Trump.”

Ailes, 76, resigned from Fox News on July 21, just 15 days after a sexual harassment suit was filed against him by former host Gretchen Carlson.

The news of Trump and Ailes reportedly no longer speaking comes as Trump and Clinton take to the stage Wednesday night in Las Vegas for the third and final presidential debate of 2016.
