Channing Tatum Refuses to Work in Weinstein Company Movie

Famous actor Channing Tatum has decided to refuse a work project following allegations that Harvey Weinstein sexually abused and harassed a series of women. So, Channing will no longer work on a movie about sexual abuse in collaboration with Weinstein’s company.

“The brave women who had the courage to speak their truth about [Mr] Weinstein are true heroes to us,” Channing Tatum said according to BBC. “They are lifting the heavy bricks to build the equitable world we all deserve to live in,” he went on to add. Channing was working with The Weinstein Company at a movie about a boy who had been sexually abused. The actor was both starring in and directing the movie.

“While we will no longer develop it or anything else that is property of TWC, we are reminded of its powerful message of healing in the wake of tragedy,” he went on add. “This is a giant opportunity for real positive change that we proudly commit ourselves to. The truth is out – let’s finish what our incredible colleagues started and eliminate abuse from our creative culture once and for all.”

Weinstein denied all the sexual abuse allegations made against him. He did admit that his behavior may have “caused a lot of pain” in the past and apologized. A representative for the famous Hollywood producer said that all the sexual relationships that Weinstein had were consensual.

Ed Sheeran Hospitalized after Car Accident

It has been revealed that Ed Sheeran had to be rushed to the hospital following an accident. The famous singer was actually hit by a car. It all happened in London, when Ed was riding his bicycle. Apparently, the famous singer broke his arm and this is why some of his upcoming concerts might be affected.

Ed revealed that he suffered this accident in an Instagram post. “I’ve had a bit of a bicycle accident and I’m currently waiting on some medical advice, which may affect some of my upcoming shows. Please stay tuned for further news,” the famous star said. He also shared a picture of his injured hand. However, Ed provided no other details at this point, so it remains unclear how severe his injuries were.

Furthermore, it is not very clear if the whole incident will have an impact on Ed’s tour. Currently, Ed is on break from his music tour, which started in March. He is set to resume his concerts on October 22, but it remains unclear if this will really happen at the scheduled time.

Without a doubt, Ed is enjoying a huge success with his latest album, Divide. The album sold in no less than 600k units in the UK in its first week. It is yet to see when the star will be back on the stage and perform in front of his numerous fans.

28 Women accuse Harvey Weinstein of Sexual Harassment and Abuse

A total of 28 women have spoken against Harvey Weinstein until now. And the numbers seem to grow by the day. Among these women are some very famous actresses and models. So, Ashley Judd, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Cara Delevingne are among the women who have experience a sort of sexual harassment from Weinstein and who decided to share their experience.

Several women talked about what happened to them after an extensive investigation published by The New York Times, claiming that Weinstein has been linked to multiple cases of sexual harassment, including some that have been settled throughout the years. Three cases of rape have also been reported against Weinstein, who is currently under investigation by authorities.

Many stories shared by these women seemed similar when it comes to way Weinstein contacted and made proposals to them. Such a story was shared by actress Melissa Sagemiller. She said that it all happened in 2000, when she was working at the movie Get Over It. The actress revealed that Weinstein asked her to come to his hotel room and told her to give him a massage. The actress said that Weinstein also told her that he would not let her leave unless she kissed him.

“I said fine and kissed him on the lips. He sort of held my head and made me kiss him, and then he’s like, ‘OK, you can go now. That’s all I wanted. Just do what I say and you can get your way,’ ” she said. The actress went on to say that she had another unhappy encounter with him when she was flying back to New York, after filming was done in Toronto. She said that Weinstein wanted her to travel with him on his private plane.

The actress claimed that when she arrived at the airport, she was escorted by the personnel there to Weinstein’s private plane. “See, Melissa, you can’t say no to me. I always get what I want,” he told the actress when she on boarded the private plane. Luckily for Melissa, there were other actors on the flight as well, so she said she stayed with Shane West throughout the entire time.

Adidas Involved in Corruption Case

Adidas managed to create a lot of headlines lately with its involvement in a severe corruption case. The scandal first emerged at the end of September, when the FBI arrested a company executive on allegations of offering bribes to high school students and their families for certain benefits for Adidas.

The case is considered to be very widespread and it actually came as a shock in the world of sports. The Adidas executive charged in the case is Jim Gatto, the company’s Global Marketing Director for Basketball. The authorities charged him with wife fraud, money laundering, as well as paying $250,000 in bribes.

The whole case is quite complicated and also involves other defendants, including a former Nike employee and assistant basketball coaches from Arizona, Auburn and California, among others. The Adidas director was accused of paying money to basketball players that are still in high school, and their families, if they promise that they would go to play at certain schools. Furthermore, the young players had to give Gatto guarantees that they would sign endorsement deals with the sportswear company sponsoring those schools, when turning professional.

An important thing to mention is that the name of the sportswear company was not specified in court filed documents. The court papers do not mention Adidas’ name, but the references made when talking about the “company” point to the sportswear giant. The names of the universities part of the case have not been revealed, either.

Adidas previously stated that it would cooperate in the investigation. “Today, we became aware that federal investigators arrested an Adidas employee,” the company said. “We are learning more about the situation. We’re unaware of any misconduct and will fully cooperate with authorities to understand more,” the same statement added. The company also said that it will also conduct its own investigation into the case.

So, besides Gatto, the FBI also charged several college coaches in relation with the corruption investigation. Thus, the case is expected to get bigger and most likely other people will also be charged in connection with the claims.

FBI to Investigate Harvey Weinstein

It seems that the FBI has also joined the case involving Harvey Weinstein. It has been reported that the FBI started an investigation against Weinstein, following allegations of sexual harassment and rape from several women.

The Daily Mail reported that the FBI’s decision was rushed by rumors that Weinstein was planning on leaving the Unites States to move to Europe. This means that he might be able to avoid prosecution. So, the FBI will be looking into the allegations against Weinstein. A TMZ report claimed that Weinstein was actually planning on leaving the country this week and fly to Switzerland. The same report claimed that the Hollywood producer later changed his mind.

The star wanted to go to Europe to get treatment for sex addiction. However, it was reported that his team finally found a facility for him to attend in Arizona. Weinstein will allegedly get treatment for sex addiction and behavioral issues at this facility. However, this does not mean that things are looking better for Weinstein.

In fact, the producer is constantly linked to new sexual harassment allegations. While more women start to speak up about his abuses, some cases have also been reported outside of the US. So, reportedly, there are five accusers talking about his misconduct in France, as well as some in London, although the exact number has not been revealed for the moment. Most likely, the FBI will collaborate with the local authorities when it comes to their investigation.

One of the most serious allegations against Weinstein had been made by Lucia Evans, who said that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him. Lucia said she was a student who wanted to become an actress in 2004, when this happened. The incident occurred in New York. Several actresses, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Ashley Judd, claimed that they were sexually harassed by Weinstein on different occasions at the beginning of their careers. They each shared different stories on how the abuse happened.

Matt Damon Denies Covering Up for Harvey Weinstein

Without a doubt, the subject of the moment when it comes to the world of celebrities involves Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment, abuse and even rape by a series of famous women. Actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie or Rosanna Arquette have talked against the movie producer.

However, along with Weinstein, some other famous names were also dragged into the scandal. One of them is popular actor Matt Damon. Damon was accused of trying to cover up Weinstein’s mistakes, allegation which the actor denied. So, reporter Sharon Waxman accused Damon of trying to “kill” a story about Weinstein about 13 years ago.

The reporter said that she became aware of some rumors indicating that one of Weinstein’s employees in Italy was trying to procure women for him. However, she did not get to investigate too much, because she soon got a phone call from Damon and actor Russell Crowe, who wanted to vouch for the employee. Finally, the story was never published and the allegations were never made public. According to the reporter, Weinstein had actually asked Damon and Crowe to call her and make her take the story back.

“They were calling me to vouch for this executive. They were calling me to say that they knew the guy, they hung out with him in Italy, and he seemed like a good guy,” Waxman said. Well, Matt Damon denied conspiring with Weinstein or knowing about any allegations. He said he never tried to end the story. “I would never, ever, ever try to kill a story like that,” the Hollywood star said according to Deadline. “I just wouldn’t do that. It’s not something I would do, for anybody,” he went on to add.

The actor also said that Weinstein told him that the story was about the executive not having professional experience, and Weinstein asked Damon to “tell her that he was a professional and you had a good experience, and that was it”. “I was never conscripted to do anything. We vouch for each other, all the time,” he explained. “I’m sure I mentioned to her that I didn’t know anything about the rest of her piece, because I didn’t,” the actor concluded. Damon also said that he never knew about Weinstein’s behavior related to sexual abuse allegations.

Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow Talk against Harvey Weinstein

Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow are the latest stars to join the list of accusers against Harvey Weinstein. The two famous actresses talked against Harvey while contacting the New York Times. Both Gwyneth and Angelina said that they were sexually harassed by the movie producer.

Gwyneth Paltrow claimed that she was 22 years old when the incident occurred. Harvey called her into his hotel room, allegedly for a work related meeting, after he cast her in the main role of the movie Emma. The movie, based on a Jane Austen book, made Gwyneth a worldwide known star.

So, before filming for Emma started, Harvey called Gwyneth and asked her to go to his suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel. He tried to put his hands on the actress and asked her to go to the bedroom for massages. Gwyneth refused him and the actress said she was very scared. “I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,” she said.

The popular actress went on to say that she told her boyfriend of that time, Brad Pitt, about what happened and the famous actor confronted Harvey Weinstein about the incident. Of course, he left her alone, but Harvey asked Gwyneth not to tell anyone else about what happened. “I thought he was going to fire me,” she explained.

Angelina Jolie also shared a similar story with The New York Times. The actress claimed that it all happened in the 1990s, after she starred in the movie Playing by Heart. Once again, the sexual harassment happened in a hotel room. Angelina said he made some sexual advances which she naturally rejected. “I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did,” the actress explained. “This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable,” she also said in an email sent to the New York Times.

Harvey Weinstein was accused by several women of sexual harassment, abuse and even forced oral and vaginal sex. He denied the allegations of forcing women into sex.

Tom Cruise Refuses to Talk to Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are a couple. The news was confirmed after years of speculation. Of course, one of the first things that got the spotlight after the dating rumors were confirmed was what Katie’s former husband, Tom Cruise, thinks about this whole story. Well, several reports have claimed that Tom was not happy at all.

A new report from Celebrity Insider claimed that ever since he found out about Katie and Jamie dating, Tom has stopped all connection with his former wife and their 11 years old daughter Suri. The report said that Tom’s entire family has done the same, so no one is in connection with Katie and Suri at the moment. The same celebrity site claimed that Tom has actually not seen Suri for about four years.

A source talking to the site said that Tom has been quite indifferent, although Katie has made a lot of efforts in the attempt to have a cordial relationship with the famous actor, of course, all for the sake of her young daughter. “[Katie] has reached out [to Tom] in the hopes of opening a dialogue about resuming contact with Suri,” the insider said.

Apparently, Katie did not want her issues with Tom to come between Suri and her father and she would really like him to have a relationship with Suri. However, it appears that the actor does not want the same. Some have claimed that Tom stopped contact with Katie because of her turning against the Church of Scientology.

Since photos of Jamie and Katie holding hands while walking on the beach emerged, a series of stories have been published on this subject and a lot of speculation has been made. Some claimed that Tom had absolutely no idea that Katie and Jamie were seeing each other and got very upset when he found out. Ever since the end of her marriage to Tom, Katie has been mostly single. At least, this is what the actress claimed. Jamie Foxx constantly denied dating Katie, although the two were always linked. She was previously linked to Joshua Jackson and Matthew Perry.

Kylie, Kim and Khloe Starting to Plan their Nurseries

It’s an exciting time for the Kardashian-Jenner clan. The rumors are saying that Kim, Khloe and Kylie are all going to welcome babies. Kim is the only one who has confirmed the baby rumors for the moment. She and her husband Kanye West are going to welcome a baby via surrogate. Kim revealed nothing else for the moment on this subject. This will be the third child for Kim and Kanye.

However, we cannot say the same thing about Khloe and Kylie. The two have not confirmed or denied the rumors, although they have been linked to baby news for a few weeks now. The rumors said that both Khloe and Kylie are going to welcome their first child around the same time. Kylie is allegedly pregnant with Travis Scott and is expecting a baby girl. Khloe is said to be pregnant with Tristan Thompson.

Well, some sources talking to People magazine claimed that the three sisters have already started to prepare for the moment when they will become moms. “Khloé and Kylie are both starting to plan out their nurseries, and Kim and Kourtney are also involved in the process,” the insider explained. “All the sisters are super excited, and Kris has been helping as well,” the same source went on to add.

The source also revealed that when it comes to Khloe, the change is going to be even bigger because she will actually move into a new home. Allegedly, Khloe is searching for a new home with her boyfriend Tristan Thompson. The famous Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is said to be very happy. “The while family is being super supportive of each other,” the source also said. However, she is not ready to share the baby news with the whole world.

Kylie also wants to keep a low profile for now and she spends most time at home. “Even though this is a very exciting time for her, she wants to be more private for now, and is doing her best to stay out of the public eye,” the source said. The insider explained that Kylie just wants a bit of privacy and she is very happy about the baby.

Shakira and Pique Separation Rumors Not True

Although a previously released media report indicated that Shakira and Pique are going to end their relationship, it seems that the rumors were not true after all. Even though there is still no official confirmation or denial from the two, a source talking to US Weekly claimed that the pair have not separated and are still happy together.

Shakira and Pique have been a couple for six years and have been first linked to split rumors a couple of days ago. The separation news was first reported by Spanish website Cotilleo, which allegedly talked to a source close to the couple. “It’s something serious and she has been the one who has finally made the decision,” the source said without revealing too much additional detail.

Well, US Weekly denied these claims. “They have 100 percent not split,” an insider told the celebrity site. The same source explained that their relationship is as strong as ever. As already mentioned, the two stars have not addressed the rumors themselves, so it remains unclear for the moment if they are really true.

Furthermore, it is quite curious that Shakira and Pique were linked to separation rumors, as the two seemed very much in love. They have two sons together, Milan, who is 4, and Sasha, who is 2. And Shakira claimed during a 2014 interview that she and Pique share real love. “There’s real love, there’s no ulterior motives. And I’m with him because he’s the most amazing man I’ve ever met. We want the same things, we like the same things, we hate the same things. I have never been with someone so passionate in my life,” the singer said.

Shakira also revealed during an interview that she gets a lot of help from her boyfriend when it comes to taking care of the children. She claimed that both she and Pique are hands-on parents and they love to spend time with the kids. Shakira also said that she wanted a big family with Pique. It is yet to see if other rumors will also emerge on this subject.
