Nelly used to be the Band-Aid enthusiast who gave instructions on the best way to deal with a sudden rise in indoor temperature (1. Take off all your clothes). Lately he’s been known more as someone who has been racking up sexual assault allegations. A few weeks ago, Nelly was accused for a second and third time of sexual assault by two women in the UK, known only as Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2. One of those allegations caught the attention of the police, and now Nelly is under a criminal investigation.
As if I even needed to specify it was Ivanka Trump.
It’s been alleged that porn star Stormy Daniels was paid $130,000 a month before the election to keep quiet about an affair she had with Donald Trump in 2006. The only thing is, Stormy originally spoke to In Touch in 2011 about the affair, long before she allegedly took the $130,000 and signed an NDA. So yesterday InTouch Weekly was like, here, have at it, folks, and republished parts of their story.
The physical manifestation of a wink from a drunk at a bar, James Franco, and his brother Dave Franco, were scheduled to give a talk tonight in association with The New York Times about their new film The Disaster Artist. But James and Dave’s TimesTalk isn’t happening, and it’s not because James is still fighting with Tommy Wiseau over control of the mic.
Children of the 80s, be prepared, because this story will ruin Uncle Phillip from Webster for you. And your eyes may be giving you the truth if you read his hat as, “sexual enforcer.”
In 2015, Tony winner Ben Vereen directed a community theater production of Hair (he was in the original Broadway production) at the Venice Theater in Venice, FL, and several of the female cast members say that he took the show’s theme of free love to horrific and illegal levels of NO. Now it makes sense as to why The Leading Player from Pippin supported Bill Cosby and wondered, “Aren’t there more important things to talk about in this world?” I bet ole’ Ben is wishing we’d go back to talking about Cosby instead of him.
Why yes, I did try to find the creepiest picture possible of Dustin Hoffman in a pervert-looking trench coat for this story.
Here’s some news that will no doubt have John Oliver holding a Tootsie DVD to his ear, like “Sorry, what was that you said about having incredible respect for women?” Yesterday Variety published the stories of three more women who claim to have been sexually harassed and assaulted in the 80s by Dustin Hoffman.
Last month, a former model named Keri Claussen Khalighi alleged that Russell Simmons had raped her (while Brett Ratner watched) in 1991. Russell claimed everything was consensual. Then screenwriter Jenny Lumet accused him of alleged rape. Russell released a statement implying it was all consensual. Yesterday, The New York Times published the accounts of four women accusing Russell of sexual assault, three of whom accuse him of rape. Prepare for a case of déjà-vu, because Russell has responded, and he recycled his favorite denial about everything being consensual.
