Sexual assault allegations continue to plague Hollywood

It  seems that every day  new allegations of sexual assault, harassment or abuse are levied against high-powered Hollywood figures.


A “PEDOPHILIA RING”

Corey Feldman has named one of his alleged abusers after promising to out Hollywood’s “pedophilia ring.”

The 46-year-old actor accused his former assistant Jon Grissom, who later had bit roles in several movies, of molesting him in the ‘80s.

On “Dr. Oz” Thursday, Feldman called the LAPD to file a report against Grissom. LAPD confirmed they were “aware of the incident.”

The “Goonies” star has claimed for years that he and Corey Haim, who died in 2010, were victims of child sexual abuse.

The child actor recently announced that he’s launching a $10 million fund-raising campaign for a feature film to out the other members of the “pedophilia ring.”

On Monday, Feldman also accused manager Marty Weiss of abusing him.

MORE SPACEY ALLEGATIONS

A former teen actor who says he was in a ‘sexual relationship’ with Kevin Spacey during the mid-1980s told Vulture that Spacey attempted to rape him — the latest in a series of people to accuse the “House of Cards” actor of impropriety.

Meanwhile, actors and former staff at the Old Vic theater in London — for which Spacey was the artistic director for 11 years — accused the theater of turning a blind eye to Spacey’s alleged misconduct.

The now 48-year-old man, who opted to remain anonymous, detailed the pair’s relationship to the outlet.

“I always have said, ‘He tried to rape me.’ I told him I didn’t want that, he went again to do it, I told him no, he went again and pushed harder and grabbed me and pushed harder,” the man recalled.

Spacey’s lawyer told Vulture that the actor “absolutely denies” the allegations put forth by the anonymous accuser. The man claimed the incident happened when he was just 15.

NYPD INVESTIGATION WEINSTeiN

The NYPD is investigating a third set of sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein — this time from actress Paz de la Huerta, who accused the fallen movie mogul of raping her in 2010. De la Huerta told Vanity Fair that she shared the information about the assaults with her therapist. That therapist recently gave the actress a letter providing her memories of those sessions, she said.

De la Huerta, 33, said the first attack took place after Weinstein offered to give her a ride to her Tribeca home after a party at a hotel in Manhattan in October 2010.

De la Huerta is one of more than 50 women to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault or rape.

On Sunday, California bore the brunt of what meteorologists referred to as a bomb cyclone and an atmospheric river, a convergence of storms that brought more than half a foot of rain to parts of the Bay Area, along with high winds, concerns about flash floods and the potential for heavy snow in the Sierra Nevada. Much of the Bay Area was under a flash flood watch on Sunday, with the National Weather Service warning of the potential for mudslides across the region. (NOAA via The New York Times)
