There’s an old Public Enemy song called Burn Hollywood Burn that comes to mind whenever I think about all of the sexual misconduct allegations taking place right now. Bill Cosby is currently on trial. Harvey Weinstein has a Soul Train line full of accusers ready to throw that ass in the clink. And Def Jam founder Russell Simmons has also been accused by quite a few women for the same crime. Now one of his accusers, filmmaker Jennifer Jarosik, has decided to drop her lawsuit against him.
For the past week Taylor Swift has been easily morphing into that super-extra, entitled sorority sister everyone tolerates but doesn’t really like. First, she fucked up a classic cookout jam. Then in a surprise twist she received praise from the creators of said cookout jam (because they know they about to get PAID!) And now, in a move that can only be summed up as “have several seats little girl,” a judge is scolding her for trying to make the plaintiffs. who lost against her in a recent copyright infringement lawsuit, pay for her legal fees.
One of the #MeToo stories that came out late last year was against 66-year-old Geoffrey Rush. He had been accused of “inappropriate behavior” while performing in King Lear with The Sydney Theatre Company in 2015 and 2016. Geoffrey responded to the allegations, published by Sydney’s The Daily Telegraph, by denying any inappropriate behavior, and added that STC received the complaint after he had finished working with them.
In February, Geoffrey filed a defamation lawsuit against Nationwide News (The Daily Telegraph’s parent company) and journalist Jonathon Moran (who wrote of the allegations). According to Deadline, in court today, Geoffrey’s lawyer accused The Daily Telegraph of damaging his career and forcing him to hide in his house.
Donald Trump currently has several lawsuits on his plate, and one of those is from Stormy Daniels. Earlier this month, Stormy’s lawyer Michael Avenatti filed a lawsuit on behalf of his client against Donald Trump, for attempting to enforce an unsigned non-disclosure agreement. The lawsuit claimed that Trump’s team had been bullying and badgering Stormy into keeping quiet about their alleged 2006 affair with the NDA she signed, even though it wasn’t technically legally binding, thanks to Trump’s missing signature.
The Washington Post says that Stormy recently went to court to amend her lawsuit, and she’s dragging Trump’s favorite lawyer Michael Cohen into it now.
Fred Savage Is Being Sued For Allegedly Going Crazy And Getting Violent With A Crew Member On “The Grinder”
The pristine image of sweet little Kevin Arnold was ruined for many earlier this year when Alley Mills said that The Wonder Years was cancelled after a costume dresser accused Fred Savage and his TV brother Jason Hervey of sexually and verbally harassing her. The case was settled out of court and The Wonder Years was put down by ABC. And according to a new lawsuit, the alleged Harvey Weinstein Jr. of his time didn’t outgrow that raging pus-filled butt zit phase, because it wasn’t a phase.
Lisa Marie Presley’s estranged husband Michael Lockwood has demanded she pony up $450,000 for the attorney fees he’s racked up during their divorce battle. Lisa Marie responded by saying that she can’t pay because she’s broke. $450,000 is a drop in the suck bucket for Lisa Marie, who claims to be $16 million in debt. A few months ago, Lisa Marie said her former financial manager Barry Siegel is the reason why she’s got money problems. She also threatened him with a lawsuit. TMZ says that Lisa Marie recently made good on that threat.
