Before Asia Argento was accused of having sex with a 17-year-old named Jimmy Bennett in 2003, she might have been known as Rose McGowan’s fellow #MeToo soldier and friend. But ever since Asia began to fight against the accusations that she’s a sexual predator, Rose has slowly (very slowly) moved away from her. Eventually Rose accused Asia of being a major creep and liar. Asia isn’t happy that Rose has been running her mouth, and is threatening Rose with a lawsuit.
It appears there are two possible ways to react if you’re a famous American politician and have recently found yourself humiliated at the hands of Sacha Baron Cohen on his Showtime series Who Is America?. If you’re Georgia Republican state Rep. Jason Spencer, you might pull up your pants and resign in an attempt to save what little shred of dignity you might have left. If you’re Sarah Palin, you would throw an internet tantrum and claim you were duped. Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama (and creep) Roy Moore looked like a fool on Who Is America? in a segment involving a fake pedophile detector, and now he’s suing.
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 know that the “Assault? Did he look at his face? Cause it sure is killing me” jokes write themselves when it comes to Johnny Depp. But this assault is the kind that is causing one more problem for Johnny’s already overworked lawyers. In May it was reported that Johnny had allegedly attacked a location manager during the filming of his latest film City of Lies. That location manager has recently decided to sue him.
I came of age on the social fringes of the gutter punks and squatters who viewed catching a little case of the bed bugs (or scabies or crabs, for that matter) as a crusty rite of passage. They would be raising a brown bag of Mickey’s 40 OZ to Brazilian model Sabrina Jales St. Pierre whom People announced is suing Palm Desert Embassy Suites for allegedly giving her a bad case of the skin nibbles caused by bed bugs. Try to get through this story without itching and you win a gold star.
Ed Sheeran seems pretty harmless, but according to the company that partly owns the rights to the late Marvin Gaye’s song “Let’s Get It On,” he’s a shady plagiarizer who ripped off Marvin for his song “Thinking Out Loud.” The Guardian says that Ed is now facing a copyright infringement lawsuit, and the “Let’s Get It On” people want to be compensated to the tune of $100 million.
