Following the 58-year-old actor’s response to Anthony Rapp‘s allegation that he attempted to make a pass on the 46-year-old Star Trek actor when he was just 14 years old on Sunday (October 29), stars are bashing Kevin for coming out as a gay man in his statement – seemingly to deflect from his alleged behavior. “Kevin Spacey sexually assaulting a minor has nothing to do with homosexuality. Also, someone should explain this to #KevinSpacey,” wrote Aimee. “Nope to Kevin Spacey‘s statement. Nope. There’s no amount of drunk or closeted that excuses or explains away assaulting a 14-year-old child,” added Dan. See more responses below.

The records company and its former president “mutually agreed” to parting ways, according to a statement given to Variety on Wednesday (March 28). The move comes after five female former employees accused Charlie of sexual harassment. He was initially placed on leave from the company at the end of January, as well as being axed from The Four‘s season finale. He was a judge on the show. “I did not do these things and this is not who I am. Throughout my career I have always sought to conduct myself professionally and appropriately. It is upsetting to be presented with false claims from long ago that I know to be untrue and were never reported. I support the national discussion taking place right now because I believe fully in the importance in treating everyone with respect and dignity at all times,” Charlie said, defending himself to Rolling Stone at the end of February.

The company will now serve as her worldwide music partner, with Republic Records serving as her label in the United States. The 28-year-old superstar posted a note on her Instagram page, explaining the deal and some important details. “I’m ecstatic to announce that my musical home will be Republic Records and Universal Music Group,” Taylor announced in a post on Instagram. “It’s…incredibly exciting to know that I’ll own all of my master recordings that I make from now on. It’s really important to me to see eye to eye with a label regarding the future of our industry. I feel so motivated by new opportunities created by the streaming world and the ever changing landscape of our industry…I also feel strongly that streaming was founded on and continues to thrive based on the magic created by artists, writers, and producers.” “There was one condition that meant more to me than any other deal point. As part of my new contract…I asked that any sale of their Spotify shared result in a distribution of money to their artists, non-recoupable. They have generously agreed to this, at what they believe will be much better terms than paid out previously by other major labels. I see this as a sign that we are headed towards positive change for creators – a goal I’m never going to stop trying to help achieve, in whatever ways I can,” she continued. Taylor then went on to thank her entire fan base for their “dedication, trust, and loyalty…who have cared about the worlds and melodies I’ve written. My biggest goal moving forward is to make you proud….I can’t wait to show you what I’m making next.” Taylor was previously signed with Big Machine......»»

Kevin Spacey"s Brother Confidently Calls The Actor "A Monster" While Sharing More About Their Past

Kevin Spacey's brother has been waiting the A-lister's "twisted" nature to come to light for some time. For a candid chat with The Sun, Randall "Randy" Fowler opened up about his sibling's recent controversy and dished all about the House Of Cards star's dark side. This isn't the first time that Fowler has spoken out as, [...] Kevin Spacey's brother has been waiting the A-lister's "twisted" nature to come to light for some time. For a candid chat with The Sun, Randall "Randy" Fowler opened up about his sibling's recent controversy and dished all about the House Of Cards star's dark side. This isn't the first time that Fowler has spoken out as, at the end of October, Randy claimed he and Kevin were raised by a father who was physically and sexually abusive. Photos: Hollywood Bigwigs Accused Of Sexual Misconduct Over The Past Month! Per Randy, the industry vet was drawn to acting at a young age in an attempt to deal with his sexuality and to process the abuse he was getting at home. Fowler explained: "Kevin turned to acting as a little kid. He ditched the name Fowler and created the character of Kevin Spacey to mask a monster. It helped him hide from his demons. He struggled with his sexuality, always denying he was gay. On stage he pretended to be somebody else. It gave him power, transformed him. We grew up with abuse and neglect in a house of horrors. Our violent dad whipped me with a riding crop ... I've never had children in case that evil personality could be passed on. Now it sadly seems one of us may carry those twisted genes and that person might be Kevin." Man, oh man. And allegedly Kevin felt at home in sinister roles because there was a "dark side to him." Kevin's brother continued: "His fans love the sinister characters he plays, but he's not acting, that's really him. He hid behind his acting career to maintain a secret sordid life and in reality he was a monster. I've long suspected there was a dark side to him. I just hope he gets the help he needs so nobody else is harmed by him." It seems the truth about Kevin almost came out back in 2004 when the Oscar winner claimed he was mugged during a walk with his dog in a London park at 4 a.m. Later, Spacey admitted that he wasn't "mugged" but had fell for a "con" where a youth asked for his cellphone and took off with it. On this particular incident, Randy added: "That was when the wheels of his fake life first started to come off. I thought then it was only a matter of time before the world would know the real Kevin Spacey. He'd been trying to lie about who he was for years. In interviews he reinvented his entire childhood." Those are certainly fighting words. Supposedly, Kevin's lied about breaking "an officer's leg at military school" and burning "down a building at the back of [their] house." Both stories were allegedly plucked from Randy's life as the Idaho resident noted: "He has taken pieces of my life and claimed them as his own, trying to portray a man who was a troubled child saved by the theatre." Well, there's no denying that Kevin's a deeply troubled man. In case you missed it, Spacey has checked into rehab following accusations of sexual misconduct. It'll be inneresting to see if Spacey bounces back from this immensely huge scandal... [Image via Petra Schönberger/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

Actor Harry Dreyfuss Reveals Kevin Spacey Groped Him As A Teenager

This is so awful. As news continues to come out around Kevin Spacey, we're starting to hear more stories about his allegedly awful behavior — and this time, it's actor Harry Dreyfuss that has come forward to share. Related: Thank Goodness Kevin Spacey Has Been FIRED! In a piece posted this afternoon to BuzzFeed News, Dreyfuss — the [...] This is so awful. As news continues to come out around Kevin Spacey, we're starting to hear more stories about his allegedly awful behavior -- and this time, it's actor Harry Dreyfuss that has come forward to share. Related: Thank Goodness Kevin Spacey Has Been FIRED! In a piece posted this afternoon to BuzzFeed News, Dreyfuss -- the son of actor Richard Dreyfuss -- reveals how he was groped without warning or consent by Spacey as an 18-year-old. It was back in 2008, with the younger Dreyfuss being in a room alone rehearsing lines with Kevin and Richard, and Spacey opted for a moment when the elder Dreyfuss wasn't looking to make his (unwanted) move. Harry explains in his own words (below): "We were in Kevin's kitchen when my dad ducked out for a moment to go to the bathroom. Kevin and I were looking out his window at the lights of London, when he came to my side and asked me how my Christmas had been. I had had a terrible Christmas, I told him, because I was too shy. I was 18, I'd mustered the courage to leave our hotel and go get legally drunk for the first time in my life, but I didn't have the nerve to speak with anyone. Instead, I had a few drinks and then promptly returned to my hotel room to watch Tropic Thunder for the fourth time. After I'd told him that, Kevin slid his hand into mine. He wrapped his fingers between my fingers, and peered into my eyes, and warmly said, 'Don't be shy.' Then, 'You'll get over it.' I was stunned." And later, Harry continues, describing how Spacey used reading lines as an opportunity to get unnecessarily close to the boy to physically touch him. More here (below): "After a few minutes, he put his hand on my thigh. Finally (finally, finally) I became suspicious. It took that long because it just never occurred to me that Kevin would be interested in me in the first place. He was an adult man, a hero of mine, my dad's boss, none of which were categories on my radar for sexual interactions. Besides, I thought, Surely he can't be coming on to me like this right in front of my dad. But his hand stayed there. So after a bit, I came up with what I thought was a brilliant safety tactic: I stood up and walked to the other side of the couch, and sat back down. Bulletproof. But without missing a beat, Kevin stood up too, and followed me. He sat just as close and immediately put his hand back on my thigh." So sickening.
