Former ‘Neighbours’ star Craig McLachlan denies claims he’s a ‘predator’

Award-winning Aussie actor Craig McLachlan, of Neighbours and Home and Away fame, has denied claims he sexually harassed and assaulted a trio of women.

McLachlan dismissed claims he engaged in “sinister and predatory behaviour” on and off stage during his 2014 run on The Rocky Horror Show as the character Dr Frank-N-Furter, calling the allegations “simple inventions”.

“Frankly, they seem to be simple inventions, perhaps made for financial reasons, perhaps to gain notoriety,” the 52-year-old former Neighbours star said in an email to the ABC.

“In either event, they are to the best of my knowledge utterly and entirely false.”

Victoria Police said “detectives from Melbourne SOCIT are investigating allegations of sexual offences dating back to 2014.”

“As the investigation is ongoing it would be inappropriate to make any further comments,” the statement said.

Former Lululemon employee seeks damages for rape | Well+Good

A former Lululemon employee, who accused her supervisor of raping her in 2016, has filed suit against the activewear retailer, claiming that the company created “the perfect environment for a sexual predator.” The news comes less than a month after Massage Envy therapists were accused of more than 180 sexual assaults—and Yoga Girl author and blogger Rachel Brathen came forward with her own wellness-world-set #metoo experiences and urged others to share their stories.

The complaint details Shayla Famouri’s experiences as a part-time worker at the company from 2014 to 2016, which she describes as a normalized culture of sexual harassment at the Santa Monica, CA, store. It further states that the company was aware of bad behavior by Famouri’s alleged assailant, Philip Silva, before the rape took place. A Lululemon spokesperson denied prior knowledge of any complaints against Silva, CNBC reports.

Former Oklahoma City mayor compares being gay to being a pedophile

A former Oklahoma City mayor is under fire for comparing being gay to sexual harassment and pedophilia.

Kirk Humphreys was originally invited to NBC’s local affiliate’s show Flash Point to serve as a counterpoint to Democratic Rep. Emily Virgin from the Oklahoma House of Representatives. The show segment was centered around Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), who has announced his impending resignation after facing multiple sexual harassment accusations. And Flash Point was supposed to stay on Franken—until Humphreys turned from Franken to former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), who is openly gay.

“Is homosexuality right or wrong?” he asked on the show. “It’s not relative. There’s a right and wrong. You just said it. So it’s either right or wrong, and if it’s OK, then it’s OK for everybody, and quite frankly it’s OK for men to sleep with little boys if it’s OK.”

Virgin, confused by Humphreys’ remarks, pressed him for an answer. But Humphreys didn’t bring

Joan Collins’ Son Says Her Former Husband Anthony Newley Was A Pedophile

Joan Collins‘ son has alleged her former husband—and his late father, Anthony Newley–was a “pedophile,” the Daily Mail has reported.

Sacha Newley, whose memoir Unaccompanied Minor comes out this week, claimed his father’s perversion wrecked his parents’ marriage.

But Collins, 84, the former star of TV’s Dynasty, says Sacha’s allegations aren’t true.

Sacha, 52, told The Sunday Times about singer/actor Anthony, “He was a pedophile. My father was drawn to youthfulness.

“He thought innocence was an aphrodisiac. That was his sexual proclivity and it’s a very dangerous, destructive thing,” he said.

Sacha, an artist, continued that growing up was strange because, “My father put sex front and center. He exposed me to all of that — it was absolutely inappropriate.”

Collins’ son claimed his dad’s 1969 X-rated 1969 film, entitled Can Heironymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe

Former news anchor: “Sexual predator” Spacey assaulted my son — last year

Another alleged sexual assault victim has stepped up to accuse Kevin Spacey, who might find himself in serious legal trouble. “I’m not here as a journalist,” former TV news anchor Heather Unruh told a press conference this morning, “but as a mom.” Unruh and her attorney revealed that Unruh’s then-18-year-old son claims that Spacey reached into his pants and grabbed his genitals in a bar in Massachusetts — and that the assault took place last year, well within the statute of limitations for prosecution.

Unruh makes it clear that she sees this as “a criminal act“:

Unruh emotionally recounted what happened to her son and how, after Spacey plied him with drinks at a Nantucket bar, the actor “stuck his hand inside my son’s pants and grabbed his genitals.”

After the incident, Spacey went to the bathroom, and Unruh claims her son ran out of the bar.

Unruh has her attorney with
