11 Celebrities Accused Of Sex Crimes

Ian-Fortey by Ian-Fortey on Jan. 14, 2014

 

 

This past Sunday, Ronan Farrow took to Twitter to, in no uncertain terms, call out his father Woody Allen as a pedophile.  Allen, you may recall, is married to his ex-wife’s adopted daughter in a relationship that, when it become public, was universally acknowledged as creepy but generally accepted because it wasn’t illegal.  Good standard to have.  Now Ronan has brought to light, again, accusations from Mia Farrow’s biological daughter who accused Allen of molesting her as a child.

 

 

The name's Scumbag.  Huge Scumbag.

Now people with no knowledge of the situation will debate this endlessly, is he guilty, is he innocent, you’ll see the same with people like R Kelly, who fans have decided are good enough at their art and still on the streets and not in prison and therefore good people.  But hey, none of us can say for sure, we can just look at the evidence and form an opinion.   Is R Kelly a horrible sex offender?  I’d stake everything I own on it, but of course no one can or will take that bet. Is Woody Allen?  His family all seem to think so.  But they’re not alone in the world of celebrity.  Sexual assault, indecent exposure and more are damn near par for the course in Hollywood, or at least the accusations are.  Here’s a handful more you may have forgotten about.

Jeffery Jones

 

 

You probably remember Jones from memorable roles in some 80s epics like Beetlejuice and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  He played a great scumbag and with good reason, he kind of is a scumbag.  Back in 2002, Jones was arrested for soliciting a 14 year old boy to pose for nude, sexually explicit pictures.  He was also found to be in possession of child pornography.  Basically he went from being the hilarious principal in Ferris Bueller to the creepy monster from Ferris Bueller. 

Jones plead no contest to the charges and is now a registered sex offender for life.  He settled a civil case with his victim and in 2010 was put on an additional three years probation for not updating his sex offender registration.

Mike Tyson

 

 

Mike Tyson is having a renaissance the last few years with movie roles, a one man show and media appearances.  He’s trying to pick up the pieces of a once great career that fell to shambles.

In 1992, Tyson was sentenced to 6 years in prison after being found guilty of the rape of 18 year old Desiree Washington. To this day Tyson maintains his innocence, citing evidence that his lawyer presented on appeal that his victim had, at least once, falsely accused a man of rape in the past.  The appeal failed and Tyson was convicted. He served 3 years of a 6 year sentence.

Britney Spears

 

 

In 2010, Fernando Flores, one-time bodyguard for Britney Spears, sued his former employer for sexual harassment.  Flores claimed in his suit that Spars repeatedly flashed him by doing things like intentionally dropping a cigarette lighter in front of him and then bending over to pick it up, exposing her genitals to him.  Ex-cop Flores also claimed she would routinely walk around naked in front of him until the situation became unbearable and he had to quit.  How did Spears respond? She settled out of court.  Make from that what you will.

John Travolta

 

 

John Travolta had a rather impressive run of sexual harassment and assault claims filed against him over the last few years.  In early 2012 Travolta was sued by not one but two massage therapists who allege Travolta tried to coerce them into sexual situations, grabbed their genitals and left condoms laying around in a manner that suggested perhaps he was looking for more than a massage. That number rose to 7 by mid-May.

 Travolta’s attorney continually denied any wrong doing and claimed a document obtained by Gawker showing massive insurance pay outs to various massage therapists and others who, in the past, worked closely with Travolta, were not for harassment claims but for legal fees.  This document shows dates that correspond to when various lawsuits had been dropped against Travolta and never re-filed so either story is plausible. 

Other claims, like that of Fabian Zanzi, who accused Travolta of assaulting him on a cruise, were dropped after a judge denied private arbitration which would have meant a public trial.  Suddenly Zanzi decided to drop the case entirely and agree to never refile, and also recant his accusations.  His name is also listed on the document Gawker obtained, but no payment was listed at that point.

Ben Roethlisberger

 

 

Steelers quarterback Roethlisberger was accused in 2009 of raping a 31 year old woman in his hotel room after a celebrity golf tournament.  The victim filed a civil suit after not having enough evidence to pursue a criminal suit, and alleged the hotel had a hand in covering it up.  The case was settled in 2012 with neither side confirming the details.

In 2010 another woman accused Roethlisberger of rape in a night club bathroom.  Details were sketchy however, and a medical exam afterwards did not turn up DNA or enough evidence that a sexual assault had happened.  Eventually the victim herself chose to not pursue the case saying a trial would be too invasive but stressing she was not recanting the accusation.  No charges were pressed against  Roethlisberger though he did lose sponsorships and receive some NFL sanctions.

Marilyn Manson

 

 

One time goth poster boy and later glam rock poster androgyny-boy(?), Manson found himself on the receiving end of a complaint after a show in 2001 when he decided to put one of the stage security guards in a headlock.  With his legs.  While wearing a thong.

The guard was not amused by having his head humped by Marilyn Manson as part of a performance and sued for sexual assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress.  Originally charged with criminal sexual misconduct, a judge tossed that charge out and eventually both sides came to a settlement.  Seeing a pattern here?

Pee Wee Herman

 

 

One of the original Hollywood weirdos, Pee Wee Herman’s so-called sex crime was one of those most widely reported in the media and oddly one of the least offensive, at least in terms of seriousness.  Basically he masturbated in a dirty movie theater.  Unfortunately for Pee Wee, cops did a sweep of the premises looking for anyone to pick up on indecent exposure charges and there he was.  His show, which was in reruns at that point, was immediately taken off the air and his toys removed from shelves as early 90s media made him into a monster.

In 2002 his home was searched on a warrant stemming from the case against Jeffrey Jones, alleging he possessed child pornography.  It took two years for the charges to be officially dropped after it was determined that Reubens possessed a sizeable collection of vintage erotica and Rob Lowe’s sex tape, but nothing that depicted children in sexual situations as had been originally claimed.

Tupac Shakur

 

 

Still renowned as the great poet of rap, it’s often forgotten that, in life, Tupac wasn’t always the nicest guy, having a history of assault before being accused of rape in 1993.  Shakur maintained his innocence in the case and noted he’d been with the same woman, consensually, days before.  However, she alleged he and his entourage then raped her in a hotel room, a charge which he was not found guilty of, along with several others.  He was, however found guilty of sexual abuse and sentenced to one and a half to four and a half years in prison.

Michael Jackson

 

 

Wait, was he ever accused of anything?

She signed on to a regular act on the Las Vegas strip just three years later, that isn't the move of a performer in their prime unless they are a magician, stripper or in Cirque du Soleil.

Yes I do remember when Cheney and Bush started the Iraq war after lying to Congress and found no WMD.  However since Cheney was tied in with Halliburton he gained millions of dollars for himself and his friends by Halliburton winning tons of no bid contracts during and after the war.  Oh, and tens of thousands of people died because of it.

Is that the kind of thing you are talking about?

@PlunderBeast@COHockey The no-bid contracts of which you write concerned the putting out of oil well fires. The Halliburton off-shoot that did the job was the only company who could have handled the job of that size. Still, you would have preferred a lengthy, drawn-out process while the fires raged. And you wonder why you are called "useful idiots." Sorry to confuse you with the facts.

@PlunderBeast@COHockeySTFU...all the Democrats had access to the same intel(UK had the same incorrect intel BTW) and voted for the war.

@COHockey

Are you deliberatly omitting the Democrat magority on the intelligence committee who pass the "Lie" on to America and the Commander in Chief?

Or are you pretending the Democrat's were not in a majority agreement to the war act?

Since Hilary was a staunch supporter when it can up for vote, is she off the hook because it would be sexist to expose the truth?

Please note, the same Democrat dominated Senate intelligence committee authored the Patriot Act that was passed by another majority of Democrat and the liberal establishment Republicans.

And yes, Shrillary is part of this democrat majority!

How convenient that the liberals have such a revisionist history, just call yourselves useful liberal idiots living the low info mob thug life.

@Ythefnot11 @PlunderBeast @COHockey 

They won MUCH more than oil fire contracts and no they weren't the only company in the world who could do it.  I only bring it up to even things out since Mr. Hockey can only put down dems when there are plenty of others causing trouble.

Bush built a coffin for the U.S. and Obama chose to put the lid on and pound in the nails.  

Point it they both screw things up, lets not lose track of that.
