Quite a few of the allegations against human-shaped nightmare Harvey Weinstein happened outside the statute of limitations. But some didn’t, like those from Paz de la Huerta. In November, Paz came forward with two allegations of rape, and was working with the NYPD. Now Paz has decided to take it one step further by filing a lawsuit against Harvey.
While it’s been a decent week for his estranged wife Georgina Champman, who continues to benefit from some celebrity damage control, Harvey Weinstein’s isn’t so great. Variety is reporting that a complaint against Harvey has recently been filed in New York, in which he’s been accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old.
While the most horrific aspect of Harvey Weinstein’s saga was how he allegedly assaulted and harassed many, many women, there was also the bit about how he was the unofficial leader of the Marchesa Mafia. His soon-to-be ex-wife Georgina Chapman runs the brand, and Harvey would reportedly make the actresses in his movies wear Marchesa on the red carpet. Just ask Felicity Huffman! Now that Harvey is facing charges, women have been rallying around Georgina’s attempt to salvage a career since she claims she never suspected Harvey was such a pervy asshole. Scarlett Johansson worked Marchesa to this year’s Met Gala, and now Priyanka Chopra is having a go at it.
Rose McGowan did an interview with The Sunday Times Magazine where she shat all over Hollywood actresses and the industry at large. She called for a boycott of movies (not sure if she specified which ones or if she just means in general) and compared them to child porn (again, not sure if she specified which movies…).
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
