Often, danger can come not only from strangers on the street, but also from the people we see on TV screens or in Instagram feeds every day. The stars from our selection were accused of molesting minors. And this is definitely a reason to think.
In December 2018, a scandal erupted on the Web, the protagonist of which was Gosha Rubchinsky. The designer was accused of pedophilia. His correspondence with a teenager surfaced on the Web, in which Gosha asked the boy to send him his photographs taken in the bathroom. At the same time, the parents of the student should not have known that he was sending pictures to Rubchinsky.
Representatives of the designer hastened to explain themselves. In an official message, they stated that Gosha's words were taken out of context. “We have been doing street casting for fashion shows and making model lookbooks for many years, and next week we will go to London for this. Gosha talked to the young man on FaceTime and then asked him to send a photo so that it would be in the archive along with the pictures of other models,”representatives of the brand tried to justify themselves.
In 2017, writer Anna Graham Hunter stated that when she was 17, she was harassed by Dustin Hoffman. According to the girl, at that time she worked as an intern on the set of the television movie "Death of a Salesman" and often crossed paths with the famous actor.
At the same time, every time he started talking about sex, felt her buttocks, offered to give him a massage, flirted and let go of vulgar jokes at her. Anna experienced extreme stress, recorded all the humiliations in her diary and regularly complained to colleagues, but they only laughed and offered to come to terms with such behavior of the Hollywood star.
Surprisingly, Hoffman did not deny his guilt. He apologized and expressed regret that his behavior caused someone moral suffering.
Michael Jackson was accused of pedophilia during his lifetime, but then direct evidence of his connection with minors was not found. Not so long ago, the scandal erupted with renewed vigor. This time, the reason was the new film Leaving Neverland by Dan Reed, in which the king of pop music again tried to accuse little boys of molesting.
The tape contains excerpts from an interview with dancer Wade Robson, who claims that Jackson raped him from the age of seven for several years. The young man sued the musician and demanded about one and a half billion dollars in moral damages, but his claim was rejected.
Michael's family denies all charges. The singer's relatives are sure that this whole story is another provocation, an attempt to denigrate the deceased and make money on his name.
Jason Momoa also became the hero of the scandalous headlines. A video from the presentation of the film "Aquaman", filmed in Hawaii, was leaked on the Web. The recording shows how the actor tried to hug his daughters by the shoulders, but netizens saw this as harassment and accused the actor of pedophilia. It seemed to some that Jason felt the girls' breasts, and he did it on purpose. Another part of the users defended Momoa, noting that he was so carried away by the welcome dances that he stroked the girls unconsciously. Fortunately, it never came to serious litigation.
Drake also managed to get caught up in the distribution of ridiculous accusations. The rapper was convicted of friendship with 14-year-old actress Millie Bobby Brown. The hype rose after the girl's interview with the Access portal, where she said that Drake supports her and gives advice on relationships with guys.
Moreover, Brown did not begin to tell what kind of guidance she received from the rapper. The artist's fans were alarmed by such friendship. Many advised him to stay away from the baby and not spoil his already impeccable reputation.
A series of sex scandals also affected Jared Leto. It all started with the post of Barbara Palvin's boyfriend Dylan Sprouse, in which he accused the lead singer of Thirty Seconds to Mars of bombarding popular models with Direct messages.
"Yo Jared, now that you've got into direct with every female model between 18 and 25, what about your success?" - wrote the actor.
The post was commented on by director James Gunn. "On the Internet, does he start at 18?" - asked the filmmaker. Because of this, heated debates erupted on the Web. Many recalled Leto the times when he was accused of harassment. The haters noted that they would not be surprised if their speculations turn out to be true. Jared himself did not respond to the provocation, so the hype soon subsided.
In 2017, against the backdrop of "harwigate" accusations of harassment fell in the address of Charlie Sheen. They tried to "hang" the rape of a 13-year-old boy on the Hollywood actor on the set. The actor Dominic Brasia dared to call Shin a pedophile. According to him, in 1986, while working on the film "Lucas", Charlie abused the young Corey Hayme. Unfortunately, Haim died several years ago, so it will no longer be possible to find out his version of what happened. Shin himself did not admit his guilt, noting that the charges brought against him were sheer slander.
