Scoop: Weiner under investigation by child welfare workers

In the wake of Anthony Weiner’s highly publicized sexting, authorities are looking into the shamed former congressman’s treatment of his 4-year-old son.

On Thursday, the New York Times reported that Weiner confirmed that New York City child welfare officials had begun an inquiry, after the New York Post published a lurid crotch-shot of him in bed, with his son, Jordan, next to him.

He told the New York Times that the Administration for Children’s Services sent a letter about the investigation to his mother’s house, and didn’t know why he wasn’t contacted directly.

Meanwhile, the Post reports that his estranged wife Huma Abedin (who has endured multiple similar scandals) is slated to co-host, with Vogue editor Anna Wintour, a high-fashion runway show next week to benefit her boss Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Designers Diane von Furstenburg, Tory Burch and Marc Jacobs will show their work at the affair; ticket prices range from $100 (standing room) to $25,000. An exclusive rooftop party will include appearances by Chelsea Clinton and Demi Lovato.


In an odd public cry, 15-time Playboy cover girl Pamela Anderson is lashing out against pornography.

The 49-year-old sex symbol joined rabbi-counselor Shmuley Boteach in an op-ed against the habit, titled “Take the Pledge: No More Indulging Porn,” published in the Wall Street Journal.

“Simply put, we must educate ourselves and our children to understand that porn is for losers — a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality,” the pair wrote.

Seems like an unusual comment from the former “Baywatch” star, who was the subject of leaked sex tapes (with Tommy Lee and Bret Michaels) in the 1990s.


A New York appeals court has thrown out Lindsay Lohan’s lawsuit against the publishers of “Grand Theft Auto.”

In 2014, the actress filed suit against Take-Two, saying the video game makers used her image for the character Lacey Jonas without her authorization

She wasn’t the only one miffed about the game. “Mob Wives” star Karen Gravano also sued, accusing the publisher of using her likeness (to create the character Andrea Bottino) without permission and violating her privacy.

A five-judge panel did not agree. It ruled the suits were without merit because Lohan and Gravano’s actual names and images were not used, and because the game, being a work of fiction and satire, is protected under the First Amendment.
