Craig McLachlan has denied allegations of harassment made against him by three women.

The accusations against the 52-year-old Australian actor concern his time performing in a 2014 production of the Rocky Horror Show.

Three cast members accused the former Neighbors actor of inappropriate touching and harassment.

Craig McLachlan stepped down from the Rocky Horror Show‘s current Australian run on January 8, but rejected the allegations as “entirely false”.

The actor wrote in response to allegations published by the Australian Broadcasting Corp: “Frankly, they seem to be simple inventions, perhaps made for financial reasons, perhaps to gain notoriety.”

The three actresses, Christie Whelan Browne, Erika Heynatz and Angela Scundi, said they had come forward to protect other cast members. Craig McLachlan had been reprising his role as Dr. Frank N. Furter in Adelaide.

The allegations, also published by Fairfax Media on January 8, include Craig McLachlan’s inappropriate behavior against Whelan Browne during a performance.

“I think people who know him know that he’s very generous, warm, funny… I saw a very different side come out in him which was terrifying,” Whelan Browne told the ABC.

Erika Heynatz, who played Magenta, said she was forcibly kissed by the actor, while Angela Scundi, a chorus member, said she was the subject of unwanted advances.

Two actresses raised concerns with the show’s senior producers but no action was taken, the reports said.

In a statement on January 8, the musical’s production company said it was “shocked” to learn of the accusations.

Gordon Frost Organization said in a statement: “In response, we have spoken to Craig and have mutually agreed that it is not appropriate for him to continue in the current production of the show.”

It said it would co-operate with authorities and conduct and internal investigation.

Craig McLachlan is a veteran of the Australian entertainment industry, having won Australia’s top TV award – the Gold Logie – and starred in programs including Home and Away and the Doctor Blake Mysteries.


Former President Barack Obama has been interviewed by Prince Harry on BBC Radio 4.

Prince Harry, the fifth in line to the UK’s throne, is one of several prominent figures who are guest-editing Today program over Christmas period.

Barack Obama warned against the irresponsible use of social media and how such actions were distorting people’s understanding of complex issues, and spreading misinformation.

The former president expressed concern about a future where facts are discarded and people only read and listen to things that reinforce their own views.

He said: “One of the dangers of the internet is that people can have entirely different realities. They can be cocooned in information that reinforces their current biases.

“The question has to do with how do we harness this technology in a way that allows a multiplicity of voices, allows a diversity of views, but doesn’t lead to a Balkanization of society and allows ways of finding common ground.”

President Donald Trump is a prolific user of Twitter, but Barack Obama did not mention him by name.

Donald Trump has been accused of overusing Twitter and following only a narrow range of users, though he maintains it allows him to connect directly with the American people.

Barack Obama suggested face-to-face contact would help counteract extreme views.

He said: “Social media is a really powerful tool for people of common interests to convene and get to know each other and connect.

“But then it’s important for them to get offline, meet in a pub, meet at a place of worship, meet in a neighborhood and get to know each other.

“Because the truth is that on the internet, everything is simplified and when you meet people face-to-face it turns out they’re complicated.”

The former president added: “It’s hard, being in the public eye is unpleasant in a lot of ways. It is challenging in a lot of ways.

“Your loved ones are made vulnerable in ways that might not have been true 20 years ago or 30 years ago.

“So it is a sacrifice that I think everybody has to be at peace with when they decide to go into politics. But, ultimately, I think the rewards of bringing about positive change in this world make it worthwhile.”

Barack Obama pays tribute to the support of his family, especially his wife Michelle, describing how glad he is that she was “my partner throughout that whole process”.

He compared his time in office to being a relay runner: “If you ran hard, you did your best and you were able to pass that baton successfully and the world was a little better then you had done your job.”

He cited ObamaCare – ensuring more people can afford basic healthcare – as a major achievement.

“What an enormous blessing it is to say that 20 million Americans have health insurance that didn’t have it before.”

Prince Harry’s program focused on issues such as the armed forces, mental health, youth crime and climate change.


Meghan Markle has joined the Royal Family for the Christmas Day service at Queen Elizabeth’s Norfolk estate.

Prince Harry and his fiancée arrived at a carol service at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Queen Elizabeth returned after missing last year’s service due to a heavy cold.

Princes Philip and Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles also attended, along with other members of the family.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip also attended an early Holy Communion service at the church.

They will return home for a traditional turkey lunch, before watching the Queen’s speech together.

This year, the Queen will pay tribute to London and Manchester for the manner in which they dealt with this year’s terror attacks, as well as praising Prince Phillip for his support in the year of the couple’s 70th wedding anniversary.


We’ve heard of father and son as well as mother and daughter matching shoes. What you don’t hear about as much (and what might be the cutest of all) is father daughter matching shoes.

Like father like daughter is a phrase you hear all the time. Celebrate the closeness and similarities between a father and daughter by purchasing a pair of matching father daughter sneakers. No one will be able to resist the cuteness.

Your daughter will look back at photos of you both in matching sneakers and be so happy about the bonding time you had while she was young. With so many shoe stores online, it might be hard to find the right pair of shoe that matches both you and your daughter’s personalities (while still pleasing your wallet, too).

We’ve researched the most adorable pairs of matching father-daughter sneakers online and this is what we found!


Adidas shell tops are in style again. They are everywhere.

Get a pair of these Adidas classics for you and your daughter and you both will be stylin’. The photo above is from the kids section, but you’d never guess because the kids and adult shoes look so similar.

Imagine a father daughter day out and how many heads would turn to look at the cuteness that is upon them.

Not only that, but if she hasn’t learned to tie her shoes yet, this is a wonderful experience to teach her. You’ll be wearing the exact same pair of shoes, so you can teach her how to tie laces and use your own as an example.

Ok, keep reading and try not to shed a tear!


Though technically some of these pairs of are not sneakers, we just had to include Sperry. They did devote a whole section to parent/child shoe matching!

Sperry has a section specifically for kids to wear shoes like their parents called “Just Like Mom and Dad.” They have lots of adorable miniature sized shoes that are otherwise identical to what their parent would wear.

All of the shoes in this special section are shoes that a father could buy and match with his daughter. Go hiking, boating, or take a walk in the forest, braving the elements together in matching Sperrys.

How cute!


Universally cool, timelessly in fashion, Converse a fantastic choice for the rocker/alternative dad when matching shoes with his daughter.

These shoes look like they could easily be adult shoes. That’s because Converse offers most of the same styles in adult, so matching father daughter shoes are super easy (and cheap!) to acquire.


Like most of these choices, Vans are always in style. Easy to slip on and off, they made a practical kids shoe. Take advantage of the efficiency of the shoe and buy a pair for yourself as well!

Dressed up or dressed down, these vans come in a variety of colors and choices to wear to different events. Wear them on a walk to the park, a day at the playground, or celebrating someone’s birthday.

Whatever the choice, the people around you will be delighted.


Light up your day and grab two pairs of light up sneakers – one for you and one for her!

Who knew light up shoes would not only come back in style, but that they would become hugely popular with adults of all ages?

Skechers offers adult male light up sneakers along with the kids. Imagine walking around the mall in matching light up shoes. So many kids will see and tell their parents they want to do the same!

Light up birthday parties, weddings, and anything else that calls for fun!


What’s cuter than tiny Nikes?

Be the coolest father daughter duo in town by grabbing a pair of matching Nikes. They’re comfortable, so you can walk around all day sporting your favorite athletic brand while father daughter bonding.

If you want to make it even more darling, you could even buy completely matching nike outfits.

Maybe that’s not such a good idea, because people will probably start fainting of cuteness-overload at that point.

Air Jordan

For those who are more into Jordans, there are unbelievably cute matching father daughter sneakers to buy.

These pairs definitely run higher on the price range, but true Jordan fans will sacrifice for their favorite brand.

You will be sporty along with your stylish daughter. Teach her how to pair Jordans with pants, jeans, and shirts for that perfect look. You’ll both be the talk of the neighborhood!


Dress simply in clean white Keds. They go with almost any outfit, and most importantly, you’ll match with your daughter. Heck, the whole family could wear these together!

She can wear these with a light sundress or dressed down in jeans and a t-shirt along with her father. However they’re worn, they’ll look nice. Afterall, they’re Keds!

The only challenge, of course, will be teaching her how to clean them clean.

Father Daughter Bonding

Sure, matching pairs of shoes is cute and all, but what it’s really about is bonding! Unforgettable childhood moments like this will live on in her memory forever.

Honestly though, you could wear matching shoes well into her adult life and it would still be awesome.


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set their wedding date for Saturday, May 19, 2018, Kensington Palace has announced.

The palace tweeted: “His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle will marry on 19th May 2018.

“Today’s announcement follows earlier confirmation of the month of the wedding and its location at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.”

The date breaks with tradition as royal weddings usually take place on a weekday – Queen Elizabeth wed on a Thursday and Prince William on a Friday.

The wedding will be on the same day as the FA Cup Final, which Prince William normally attends as FA president.

The time of the match has yet to be confirmed, but in recent years it has taken place at 17:30 GMT.

The Royal Family will pay for the wedding, including the service, music, flowers and reception.

The event will take place just a month after Prince William and Kate Middleton are expected to welcome their third child to the family.

Meghan Markle will be baptized into the Church of England and confirmed before the wedding.

Earlier this week, Kensington Palace announced the couple will be spending Christmas together at Sandringham with the Queen.

Prince Harry and the 36-year-old American actor carried out their first official engagement in Nottingham on December 1.


Ari Behn, the former son-in-law of King Harald V of Norway, has accused Kevin Spacey of groping him after a Nobel Peace Prize concert.

The Norwegian author, who was married to King Harald’s daughter Martha Louise until 2016, told radio station P4 that it happened after Kevin Spacey had hosted the event in 2007.

“I am a generous person, but this was a bit more than I had in mind,” he said.

Kevin Spacey has been accused of abuse and harassment by a string of men and has been written out of House of Cards.

A spokesman for the Hollywood star said last month that he was “taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment” in the wake of the allegations.

Recalling the alleged incident, Ari Behn said: “We had a great talk, he sat right beside me.

“After five minutes he said, <<hey, let’s go out and have a cigarette>>. Then he puts his hand under the table and grabs me by the b**ls.”

Ari Behn said he put Kevin Spacey off by telling him: “Er, maybe later.”

He added: “My hair was dark at the time, I was 10 years younger and right up his alley.”

Last month, the Old Vic theatre in London said it had received 20 personal testimonies of alleged inappropriate behavior by Kevin Spacey while he was artistic director there.

The actor and producer has faced other allegations too, with the claims leaving his career in ruins.

He has been removed from the sixth season of House of Cards, which will instead focus on his on-screen wife, played by Robin Wright.

Kevin Spacey has also been replaced by Christopher Plummer in the new Ridley Scott movie All the Money in the World.


In an interview about his life, Jay-Z has admitted for the first time that he cheated on Beyonce.

The musician told The New York Times Style Magazine that he had built up walls due to issues from his childhood, which led to him shutting down and infidelity.

Jay-Z said: “The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone’s face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself.”

Beyonce and her husband had both hinted about it in their music.

“You have to survive,” Jay-Z said.

“So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You shut down all emotions.

“So, even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can’t connect. In my case, like, it’s deep. And then all the things happen from there: infidelity.”

Jay-Z and Timbaland Cleared over Big Pimpin’ Copyright Infringement Case

Jay-Z hinted that they could have got divorced but he had had therapy to help him deal with his past experiences.

“You know, most people walk away, and, like, divorce rate is like 50% or something ’cause most people can’t see themselves.”

In 2013, rumors came out that the rapper had been cheating and then there was #elevatorgate when Solange Knowles attacked him, while sister Beyonce stayed silent.

More recently Jay-Z’s album, 4:44, alluded to him being unfaithful.

The rapper wrote: “Look, I apologize/Often womanize/Took for my child to be born to see through a woman’s eyes.”

A year before 4:44 came out, Beyonce sang about “Becky with good hair” on her album Lemonade.

“He only want me when I’m not there/He better call Becky with the good hair.”

Jay-Z and Beyonce had planned to do a joint album but ended up doing solo records instead.

“We were using our art almost like a therapy session. And we started making music together. And then the music she was making at that time was further along.

“So, her album came out as opposed to the joint album that we were working on.”

The rapper also talked about his relationship with Kanye West.

“I [talked to] Kanye the other day, just to tell him, like, he’s my brother. I love Kanye. I do. It’s a complicated relationship with us.”

Jay-Z admitted that it hadn’t always been an easy relationship.

Kanye West reportedly left Jay-Z’s streaming service, Tidal, over a money dispute and he also ranted about him during a concert.

“I’m sure he feels that I’ve done things to him as well. I’m not a perfect human being by no stretch.

“Hopefully when we’re 89, we look at this six months or whatever time and we laugh at that.”


NBC’s The Today Show host Matt Lauer has been fired by the network over an allegation of inappropriate behavior.

NBC said: “On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate s**ual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer.

“As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment.”

Matt Lauer co-hosts The Today Show. NBC said it had “reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident”.

NBC News chairman Andy Lack said while it was the first complaint about Matt Lauer’s behavior in his time there, more than 20 years, it represented a “clear violation of our company’s standards”.

In 2016, Matt Lauer signed a new contract with the network worth a reported $20 million per year.

As well as fronting the morning show, he was chosen to moderate an election debate between Donald Trump and rival Hillary Clinton.

Matt Lauer has conducted high-profile interviews, such as the one in which Charlie Sheen confirmed he is living with HIV in 2015.

In an emotional interview, Today co-hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb said they were “heartbroken”.

“As I’m sure you can imagine we are devastated and are still processing all of this,” Savannah Guthrie said.

“I’m heartbroken for Matt – he is my dear, dear friend and my partner and he has been loved by many people here.

“And I’m heartbroken for the brave colleague who came forward to tell her story and any other women who have their own stories to tell.”

Savannah Guthrie added: “This reckoning that so many organizations have been going through is important, it’s long overdue and it must result in workplaces where all women – all people – feel safe and respected.”

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump commented on Twitter: Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for “inappropriate s**ual behavior in the workplace.” But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News. Check out Andy Lack’s past!”

Matt Lauer’s departure comes two weeks after NBC executive Matt Zimmerman, who was reported to have worked closely with Lauer, was fired after allegations of inappropriate behavior.

Last week, CBS fired Charlie Rose, one of its leading anchors, amid allegations of assault. In April, Fox News fired its best-known presenter, Bill O’Reilly.


Prince Harry’s future wife, Meghan Markle, will not be known as Princess Meghan when she ties the knot with him in May 2018.

By the standards of British royal protocol, the American actress lacks “royal blood”.

That means that she cannot call herself Princess Meghan.

The arcane rules mean that Meghan Markle will be compelled to follow the example of her future sister-in-law, Kate Middleton.

When Kate Middleton married Prince William in 2011, she automatically became Her Royal Highness, Princess William of Wales. The overwhelming likelihood is that Meghan Markle will in turn become HRH Princess Harry of Wales.

Kate Middleton was not of royal blood, and what applies to her will also apply in the case of Meghan Markle.

Royal blood meant that Queen Elizabeth’s late sister Margaret was entitled to call herself Princess Margaret. Likewise the Queen’s daughter is Princess Anne and her granddaughters are Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

Royal blood made them princesses in their own right.

Sarah Ferguson was never Princess Sarah and Sophie Rhys-Jones – the wife of Prince Edward – is not Princess Sophie.

The rules also meant that Lady Diana Spencer was never officially Princess Diana. She was the Princess of Wales and, after her divorce from Prince Charles, she was Diana, Princess of Wales.

From the point of view of Buckingham Palace, handy titles or “handles” are required for the members of the family who occupy prestigious but somewhat peripheral roles to the main business of monarchy.

Queen Elizabeth’s first cousins are, respectively, the Dukes of Gloucester and Kent, and when her disgraced uncle abandoned the throne to marry an American divorcee in 1936, he became the Duke of Windsor.

Such ducal titles are frequently bestowed upon marriage precisely because they give the new entrant to the family a grand-sounding title without making them princesses or princes in their own right.

In 1986, when Prince Andrew married Sarah Ferguson, the Queen made him Duke of York, thus she became the Duchess of York – a title she continues to hold despite her divorce.

Similarly, when Prince Edward married Sophie Rhys-Jones, he became the Earl of Wessex and his new wife the Countess of Wessex.

It could be that the Queen makes the same kind of move in the cases of Kate and Meghan, and dusts off a long-defunct royal dukedom – Sussex (the favorite for Harry and Meghan), Albany and Clarence are among the vacant ones.

However, as with many things connected to British royal protocol, there is always an exception to the rule – Queen Elizabeth’s husband Philip married into the royal family, and yet he is a prince.

When Philip married the then Princess Elizabeth in 1947, the then British King, George VI, created him “Duke of Edinburgh”.

He only became Prince Philip in February 1957 when the Queen “accorded him the style and title of a Prince of the United Kingdom”.

The Queen could also make both Kate and Meghan princesses in their own right – but such are the rigid traditions surrounding this issue that Britain’s first Princess Meghan is likely to be some time away.


Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle will marry at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, in May 2018, Kensington Palace has announced.

The Royal Family will pay for the wedding, including the service, music, flowers and reception – the date will be announced later.

Meghan Markle, 36, a Protestant, will be baptized into the Church of England and confirmed before the wedding.

A spokesman for Prince Harry said the pair would make sure the wedding “reflects who they are as a couple”.

Jason Knauf said Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were “leading the planning process for all aspects of the wedding” and were working through ideas on how members of the public could “feel part of the celebrations”.

“This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy that will reflect the characters of the bride and groom,” he added.

Jason Knauf described Windsor as a “very special place” for the couple, saying they had spent time there together since meeting in July 2016.

He also revealed that Meghan Markle intends to become a British citizen and will work towards it in the coming years.

St George’s Chapel was the venue for a service of prayer and dedication after Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles, married the Duchess of Cornwall at the Windsor Guildhall in 2005.

It was also chosen for the wedding of Prince Harry’s cousin, Peter Phillips, and Autumn Kelly in 2008, and the Earl and Countess of Wessex in 1999.

Prince Harry, 33, who is fifth in line to the UK’s throne, and Meghan Markle announced their engagement on November 27.

Jason Knauf said it was “an incredibly happy day” for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and they were “overwhelmed by support from the UK and around the world”.


Prince Harry has announced he is to marry girlfriend Meghan Markle.

The fifth in line to the UK’s throne will marry Meghan Markle in spring 2018.

The couple, who have been dating since the summer of 2016, smiled as they posed for photographs outside Kensington Palace in London, where they will live.

Prince Harry said it had been a romantic proposal, while Meghan Markle said she was “so very happy, thank you”.

Asked by a reporter when he knew Meghan Markle “was the one”, Prince Harry said: “The very first time we met.”

Kensington Palace said Meghan Markle’s engagement ring was designed by Prince Harry and features two diamonds which belonged to his late mother Princess Diana.

At the center of the ring is a diamond from Botswana, a country the couple has spent time together over the last year and a half. The band is made from gold.

Writing on Instagram, Uma Thurman said she had “a few reasons” to be angry.

She added: “#metoo in case you couldn’t tell by the look on my face.”

The hashtag has been used by women to share stories of harassment and assault.

She also said: “I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact.

“Stay tuned.”

In an earlier interview, Uma Thurman said it was commendable that women were speaking out about harassment and assault.

“I have learned, I am not a child and I have learned that… when I’ve spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself,” she said.

“So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry. And when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”

Uma Thurman has appeared in a number of movies that were produced by Harvey Weinstein, including Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill.

Dozens of actresses, including Asia Argento, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rose McGowan and Cara Delevingne have accused Harvey Weinstein of harassment or assault.


Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys has said he is “shocked and saddened” to be accused of rape by former pop singer Melissa Schuman.

In a blog post published earlier this month, Melissa Schuman claimed Nick Carter forced her into an act against her will and raped her 15 years ago, when she was 18.

Melissa Schuman alleged: “He was relentless, refusing to take my nos for an answer.”

In a statement, Nick Carter said Melissa Schuman had “never expressed to me while we were together or at any time since that anything we did was not consensual”.

The musician went on: “It is contrary to my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause someone discomfort or harm.”

#MeToo: Charlie Rose Suspended by Several TV Networks Following Harassment Allegations

The accusations are the latest in a slew of claims to be made against leading figures in the movie, music and broadcasting industries.

In a lengthy post, Melissa Schuman says she was invited to Nick Carter’s apartment while they were shooting a made-for-TV movie in 2003.

Melissa Schuman, then 18 and a member of girl group Dream, claims she was “forced to engage in an act against [her] will” before being thrown onto a bed and raped.

Nick Carter and Melissa Schuman subsequently recorded a duet and performed together, which Carter said was evidence that he “was always respectful and supportive… both personally and professionally”.

Melissa Schuman said she had decided to come forward after reading a report last month that claimed Nick Carter was investigated for assault against a 20-year-old fan in 2006.

No charges were brought against the singer, whose band – best known for such 90s hits as I Want It That Way and Everybody – currently has a residency in Las Vegas.


Veteran talk show host Charlie Rose has been suspended by several TV networks following allegations of harassment.

In a report by the Washington Post, eight women accused Charlie Rose of inappropriate behavior.

CBS News said: “These allegations are extremely disturbing and we take them very seriously.”

PBS and Bloomberg have also suspended him.

Charlie Rose, 75, has apologized, but said not all the allegations were accurate.

The allegations span from the 1990s to 2011 and include groping, phone calls and unwanted advances.

Charlie Rose is one of America’s most respected broadcasters.

He is known for conducting in-depth interviews, including with such high-profile guests as former President Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Warren Buffett, on his eponymous television program which first aired in 1991.

Charlie Rose, whose show goes out on PBS and Bloomberg TV, also co-hosts CBS’s This Morning and is a contributing correspondent for 60 Minutes.

His interviews have won him Emmy and Peabody awards, and he was named by Time magazine as one of its 100 most influential people in 2014.

PBS quickly suspended distribution of the Charlie Rose show following the allegations, which they described as “deeply disturbing”.

In a statement posted to Twitter, Charlie Rose said: “I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed.

“I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.”

Numerous high-profile figures, including Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman and Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein have been accused of harassment in recent weeks.

The accusations were sparked by multiple women speaking out against Harvey Weinstein, and a subsequent campaign encouraging victims to share their stories of harassment under the #metoo hashtag.

Serena Williams’ coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, wished her a “happy wedding day” on Instagram.

The tennis star and the Reddit co-founder announced their engagement in December 2016 after dating for 15 months.

They made the news public by sharing a poem on Reddit which was titled: “I said Yes.”

Serena Williams gave birth to their daughter, Alexis Olympia, two months ago.


London’s Old Vic theater says it has received 20 personal testimonies of alleged inappropriate behavior by Kevin Spacey, who was its artistic director between 2004 and 2015.

Those affected said they “felt unable to raise concerns”, and the double Oscar winner “operated without sufficient accountability”.

The theatre said it “truly apologizes” for not creating a culture where people felt able to speak freely.

The Old Vic’s announcement follows recent allegations of harassment and predatory behavior made against Kevin Spacey while at the theatre.

Kevin Spacey has not responded to them.

His behavior was alleged to have ranged from making people feel uncomfortable to inappropriate behavior, the Old Vic investigation found.

No-one alleged rape but three people told the Old Vic they had contacted the police, while 14 of the 20 complainants were told by the investigators that they should consider going to the police.

There were 20 individual allegations and 16 were former staff, all of whom were men.

According to Lewis Silkin – the external law firm engaged by the theatre to conduct the investigation – more than half the allegations were said to have taken place inside the Old Vic.

The investigation also found there was not widespread knowledge of Kevin Spacey’s alleged behavior within the organization, the law firm said.

With the exception of one of the claims, none of the reported incidents were raised formally or informally with management.

Kevin Spacey was invited to participate in the investigation but the Old Vic said he did not respond.

The investigation is continuing so more people can come forward.

Current artistic director Matthew Warchus said he had “genuine and deep sympathy for all those who have come forward”.

He added: “Everyone is entitled to work in an environment free from harassment and intimidation.

“The Old Vic is now actively engaged in the process of healing and the process of prevention.”

Matthew Warchus described the allegations as “a shock and a disturbing surprise to many of us”.

“It is incorrect, unfair and irresponsible to say that everybody knew.

“But as a result of the investigation, what we have learnt is how better to call out this behavior in future.”

He said the findings would help “our industry as a whole, as together we rapidly evolve an intelligent new standard of protection and support in and around the workplace”.

The Old Vic’s executive director Kate Varah added that they did not want to “just rush out a statement”, saying: “We have not slept since this came out because we have been doing it in a robust, careful way.”

Kevin Spacey said on November 2 he was seeking treatment, in the wake of the allegations.  However, there is no information about what kind of treatment the actor is seeking.


Rebel Wilson is the latest Hollywood star to reveal her experience of harassment in the entertainment industry.

In a series of tweets, the Australian actress alleged that “a male star in a position of power” had repeatedly asked her to perform an inappropriate act.

“I refused. The whole thing was disgusting,” the Pitch Perfect star said.

Rebel Wilson said the unnamed star’s male friends had attempted to film the incident before she left the room.

The actress complained to the film studio about the encounter, but says she was later “threatened by one of the star’s representatives”.

Rebel Wilson also recounted a second incident which she described as a “hotel room encounter with a top director”.

“Nothing physical happened because the guy’s wife called and started abusing him over the phone for sleeping with actresses… I bolted out of there immediately,” she said.

Wilson added: “If I witness this behavior, whether it happens to me or someone I know, I will no longer be polite.”

A growing number of harassment and rape allegations have been made against public figures in recent weeks.

The allegations have been sparked by multiple women speaking out against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, and a subsequent campaign encouraging victims to share their stories of sexual harassment under the #metoo hashtag.


Steven Seagal is accused of harassment by Ellen DeGeneres’ wife, Portia de Rossi.

Portia de Rossi, who is married to Ellen DeGeneres, made the allegation in a tweet posted on November 8.

The actress alleges that during a movie audition Steven Seagal told her “how important it was to have chemistry off-screen” before unzipping his trousers.

Steven Seagal, 65, is best known for his action roles during the 1980s and 1990s, including Under Siege and Flight of Fury. The star was given Russian citizenship by President Vladimir Putin in 2016.

Several other women have come forward to accuse Steven Seagal of inappropriate behavior and harassment, including the Good Wife actress Julianna Margulies and model Jenny McCarthy.

Steven Seagal is the latest person in Hollywood to stand accused of harassment or assault after women began coming forward about producer Harvey Weinstein.

All the Money in the World has also been withdrawn from the American Film Institute’s (AFI) annual festival in Los Angeles later this month.

Valentina Violo, who plays a secretary in Ridley Scott’s movie, said she had met Kevin Spacey at a party held at the end of shooting this summer.

Kevin Spacey’s career has nosedived since the first allegation of advances were made by actor Anthony Rapp on October 30.

Netflix has axed further production of Kevin Spacey’s House of Cards drama and the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced it would no longer give the actor a special Emmy award, and his agent and publicist dropped him as a client.

Anthony Rapp accused Kevin Spacey of trying to seduce him when he was aged 14.

In response to Anthony Rapp’s claims, Kevin Spacey said he had no memory of the incident and offered an apology.

Since then several others have come forward accusing Kevin Spacey of predatory behavior, including Heather Unruh who said the actor had assaulted her 18-year-old son in 2016.

Kevin Spacey’s representatives say he is seeking unspecified treatment.


More men and women allege Kevin Spacey groped or made advances toward them.

The claims, spanning from the mid-1980s to 2016, raise further questions about Kevin Spacey’s conduct in the decades he worked in Hollywood and as artistic director at London’s Old Vic theatre.

On November 8, the journalist whose October tweet triggered a series of accusations about Kevin Spacey spoke out.

Former TV news anchor Heather Unruh told a press conference in Boston that her son had been assaulted by Kevin Spacey, at the age of 18 in a bar in Nantucket, Massachusetts, in July 2016.

Heather Unruh said Kevin Spacey had bought her son alcohol – the drinking age in Massachusetts is 21.

She said the actor had invited her son to a party, but he had run away from the bar when Kevin Spacey had gone to the lavatory.

A criminal investigation was now under way, Heather Unruh said.

“Shame on you for what you did to my son. Your actions are criminal,” she said through her tears.

In response to Anthony Rapp’s claims, Kevin Spacey said he has no memory of the incident and offered an apology.

On November 3, UK police confirmed they were investigating an alleged assault on a man from 2008.

Meanwhile, Kevin Spacey said he was seeking treatment after facing the allegations but did not give information about the type.

Since then more men have come forward.

Barman Kris Nixon, from Belfast, Northern Ireland, said he had been working near the Old Vic in 2007 when Kevin Spacey groped him at a party.

Two weeks later, Kris Nixon was in the basement of the bar he had been working in, when, he said, he realized Kevin Spacey was two feet behind him.


According to a new report, Harvey Weinstein used ex-Israeli agents to spy on his accusers.

Italian actress and director Asia Argento has described the New Yorker report as “terrifying”.

Reporter Ronan Farrow has published a story claiming Harvey Weinstein used private investigators to try to cover up abuse claims.

Asia Argento has accused Harvey Weinstein of rape.

Harvey Weinstein’s spokesperson denied that “any individuals were targeted or suppressed at any time”.

In his New Yorker story, Ronan Farrow alleged that Harvey Weinstein employed two intelligence companies, Kroll and Black Cube, to try to collect information on several women and on journalists trying to expose the allegations.

Black Cube advertises itself as “a select group of veterans from the Israeli elite intelligence units”. The New Yorker said they included former members of Israeli spy agency Mossad.

After the story was published, Asia Argento tweeted: “Why didn’t I, @rosemcgowan, @RoArquette @AnnabellSciorra speak up earlier? We were followed by ex-Mossad agents. Isn’t that terrifying? Very.”

The Sopranos star Annabella Sciorra and Rose McGowan have also accused Harvey Weinstein of rape. He has denied all allegations of non-consensual contacts.

Ronan Farrow’s report alleges that two private investigators from Black Cube, using false identities, met Rose McGowan to “extract information” from her in an effort to stop the publication of abuse allegations. One of the investigators is reported to have posed as a women’s rights advocate.

Rose McGowan praised Ronan Farrow for his investigation, writing on Twitter that “your words will line the halls of justice”.

Annabella Sciorra told the New Yorker that the alleged use of private investigators by Harvey Weinstein had scared her “because I knew what it meant to be threatened by Harvey”, adding: “I was in fear of him finding me.”

The New Yorker also reported that one intelligence company held a profile of Rosanna Arquette, who has also accused Harvey Weinstein of harassment.

Harvey Weinstein’s spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister dismissed the report, saying: “It is a fiction to suggest that any individuals were targeted or suppressed at any time.”


NYPD say they have a viable case against Harvey Weinstein after Paz de la Huerta accused him of raping her in 2010.

Robert Boyce, of the NYPD chief of detectives, told reporters that the actress had presented a “credible and detailed narrative”.

Earlier, Paz de la Huerta told Vanity Fair that Harvey Weinstein raped her twice in New York seven years ago.

Harvey Weinstein, 65, has denied all allegations of non-consensual contacts made against him.

More than a dozen women have accused the movie mogul of rape and many more have accused him of harassment.

Robert Boyce told a news conference that investigators interviewed an actress and were now looking to gather corroboratory evidence.

“She put forth a credible and detailed narrative to us,” he told reporters.

“We have an actual case here. Right now we are gathering our evidence.”

He added that as Harvey Weinstein was out of the state, police would need a court-ordered warrant if they wanted to arrest him.

NYPD have also been investigating other claims against Harvey Weinstein.

Paz de La Huerta, 33, who played Lucy Danziger in Boardwalk Empire, claims Harvey Weinstein raped her in November 2010 after offering her a lift home.

“It wasn’t consensual,” she is quoted as saying.

The actress claimed Harvey Weinstein raped her again the following month after arriving uninvited at her home.

“I did say no, and when he was on top of me I said, <<I don’t want to do this>>,” Paz de la Huerta is reported as saying.

The actress claims Harvey Weinstein left after promising to give her a stage role.

“I never heard from him again,” she told Vanity Fair.

Meanwhile, UK police investigating Harvey Weinstein are looking at assault allegations from seven women.

House of Cards, an adaptation of the 1990 miniseries of the same name, was first broadcast in 2013.

The first season garnered nine Emmy nominations, becoming the first online streaming series to win such mainstream accolades.

A Netflix spokesman said in a statement: “Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey.

“We will continue to work with MRC [series producer Media Rights Capital] during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show.

“We have also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of the film Gore, which was in post-production, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey.”

MRC said in a statement earlier that it was “deeply troubled” about the allegations against Kevin Spacey.

It said it had dealt with one incident in 2012 in which an unnamed crew member “shared a complaint about a specific remark and gesture made by Kevin Spacey”, that immediate action had been taken and that the issue had been resolved.

Kevin Spacey had “willingly participated in a training process”, MRC added.

The man, aged 23 at the time, is said to have run from the property after Kevin Spacey allegedly said: “Don’t tell anyone about this.”

A police spokesman said it had no record of any arrests having been made in connection with the investigation and police declined to comment on The Sun‘s report, which says the complainant had been interviewed by police.

It comes after a number of allegations, including CNN reporting that Kevin Spacey made the set of Netflix’s House of Cards into a “toxic” work environment through a pattern of harassment.

The CNN report said allegations were made by eight people who currently work on the show, or worked on it in the past, with one former employee alleging Kevin Spacey assaulted him.

House of Cards production has been suspended on October 31 following allegations by Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp, who claimed Kevin Spacey tried to “seduce” him when he was 14.

Kevin Spacey said he was “beyond horrified” to hear of the incident, which he does not remember.

Meanwhile, director Tony Montana also claimed he was groped by Kevin Spacey in a Los Angeles bar in 2003.

Tony Montana said he was left with PTSD for six months after the incident.

Incidents regarding the Oscar-winning actor are also alleged to have taken place in the UK while he was the artistic director at the Old Vic in London between 2004 and 2015.

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos, who acted in several plays at the theater, claimed Kevin Spacey “routinely preyed” on young male actors.

Earlier this week, the Old Vic set up a confidential complaints process for anyone connected to the theatre to come forward.

The Old Vic said in a statement: “We aim to foster a safe and supportive environment without prejudice, harassment or bullying of any sort, at any level.”


Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, director Brett Ratner and NPR senior editor Michael Oreskes the latest high-profile figures to be accused of harassment.

Kevin Spacey and Dustin Hoffman have been accused of misconduct and have issued apologies.

Meanwhile, six women have accused Brett Ratner, director of the Rush Hour movie series and X-Men: The Last Stand, of harassment or misconduct.

Brett Ratner’s lawyer “categorically” denied all of the accusations on his behalf.

A representative for Kevin Spacey released a short statement to the media, saying the actor “is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment. No other information is available at this time”.

A growing number of allegations have been made against public figures in recent weeks.

The allegations have been sparked by multiple women speaking out against the Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, and a subsequent campaign encouraging victims to share their stories of harassment under the #metoo hashtag.

New allegations have emerged from a number of men accusing Kevin Spacey of misconduct.

Director Tony Montana claims he was groped by Kevin Spacey in a Los Angeles bar in 2003. He says he was left with PTSD for six months after the incident.

Tony Montana told Radar Online that he was in his thirties when the incident took place at the Coronet Bar in LA.

It follows an allegation made by Anthony Rapp that Kevin Spacey tried to “seduce” him when he was 14 years old.

Kevin Spacey says he has no recollection of that encounter, and was “beyond horrified”.

Incidents regarding Kevin Spacey are also alleged to have taken place in the UK while the Oscar-winning actor was the artistic director at the Old Vic in London between 2004 and 2015.

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos, who acted in several plays at the theater, claims Kevin Spacey “routinely preyed” on young male actors.

Six women have accused Director Brett Ratner of harassment or misconduct.

The women, including The Newsroom actress Olivia Munn, made the allegations in the Los Angeles Times.

Natasha Henstridge, who appeared in Species and The Whole Ten Yards, claimed she had been forced into an act with Brett Ratner as a teenager.

The actress, now 43, was a 19-year-old model at the time she alleges Brett Ratner stopped her from leaving a room at his New York apartment and then made her perform an act on him.

“He strong-armed me in a real way,” Natasha Henstridge told the LA Times.

“He physically forced himself onto me.”

Brett Ratner’s lawyer “categorically” denied all of the accusations on his behalf in response to the article.

Separately, the director filed a libel case in Hawaii against a woman who accused him on Facebook of rape more than 10 years ago.

Brett Ratner says he has stepped away from dealings with movie studio Warner Bros since the allegations came to light.

Meanwhile, Dustin Hoffman has been accused of harassing an intern on the set of one of his movies in 1985.

Anna Graham Hunter, a writer, says that when she was 17, Dustin Hoffman groped her and made inappropriate comments to her.

Dustin Hoffman apologized, and said he was sorry if he “put her in an uncomfortable situation”.

In a statement to the magazine, the Oscar-winning actor said: “I have the utmost respect for women and feel terrible that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation. I am sorry. It is not reflective of who I am.”

Senior editor Michael Oreskes has resigned from National Public Radio (NPR) following accusations he kissed female colleagues without their consent during business meetings.

The 63-year-old was asked to step down by the network in response to the allegations. He has previously worked for the Associated Press and the New York Times.

Two women spoke to the Washington Post on condition of anonymity, and reported stories of abrupt and unexpected kisses during business meetings. They said they were worried about career development if their names were made public.

One of the women said that while she met Michael Oreskes in the hope of getting a job with the New York Times, he suggested that they eat room service lunch in a hotel, before he unexpectedly kissed her and “slipped his tongue into her mouth”.

Michael Oreskes has not commented publicly on the allegations, and journalists at NPR report that they have tried to contact him for comment, without success.
