For most of Harvey Weinstein’s professional life, he was allegedly living like Caligula’s even grosser, less-consensual, more power-hungry cousin. Then October 2017 happened, and Harvey was publicly exposed by both The New York Times and The New Yorker. (Scooby-Doo villain voice) And he could have been exposed sooner if it wasn’t for those darn executives at NBC! At least according to The New York Times, that’s the case.
The NYT published a piece in which they accused NBC of actively working to make sure a Harvey exposé by Ronan Farrow never saw the light of day. NBC is shooting back, saying they absolutely never had such diabolical intentions.
Asia Argento is being accused of sexually assaulting actor Jimmy Bennet when he was 17. She paid him off to the tune of $380, 000 despite claiming that the sex never happened, saying: “I have never had any sexual relationship with Bennett.”
Then she made things even darker and grosser by claiming in a statement that her recently-deceased ex Anthony Bourdain was the one who initiated the settlement. There’s now a picture and alleged text message receipts proving that Asia did have sex with a minor. Grab your popcorn! …and then immediately dump out your popcorn: you’ll need a bucket to throw up into. Continue reading
Asia Argento Has Issued A Statement That Claims Anthony Bourdain Initiated Her Sexual Assault Settlement
Asia Argento may have just used up the last of any public goodwill she had earned, by dragging her recently deceased boyfriend Anthony Bourdain into the sexual assault scandal that surfaced against her this week. Asia stands accused of sexually assaulting 17-year-old Jimmy Bennett in 2013, not long after she made allegations of her own against Harvey Weinstein. Jimmy was paid $380,000 in hush money, a fact that was made public when somebody showed the New York Times incriminating photographs of Asia and Jimmy in a presumed post-coital embrace. Now Asia has come forward with a statement in her defense. One that claims that the pay-off was all Tony’s idea. Prepare to be disturbed.
Looks like Lindsay Lohan really is back y’all. And by “back” I don’t mean she was cast in any new movies or anything like that–nobody except MTV (who works with hot messes annually and is used to it) wants to work with her still–but she is back in the sense that she’s saying stupid shit she needs to apologize for. Which is honestly, like, 73% of what fame whores do anyway, right?
Ashley Judd was one of the first actresses to speak out and name Harvey Weinstein as an alleged creep when The New York Times and The New Yorker blew the lid off his reputation as a handsy horror. Ashley wasn’t content with just telling her story; she also sued him a few months ago. But because Harvey thinks he’s done nothing wrong, he’s trying his damndest to have Ashley’s lawsuit thrown out.
I guess when your asshole ways have you facing life in prison, you have to pick and choose when to defend your horrid name in order to maybe (?) have a chance at getting out of the slammer before you’re six feet under. Harvey Weinstein may be the original festering fungus that got the #metoo movement ball rolling, and there may be a phone book’s worth of names of women who allege he forced them into pretty horrific sexual scenarios, but he now claims “FAKE NEWS!” about an article that says he admitted to exchanging parts in a movie for sex.
