Scotland Yard Launch Investigation Into Sexual Assault Allegations Against Kevin Spacey

Following a series of allegations of sexual assault made against the actor Kevin Spacey, Scotland Yard issued a statement today revealing that they were investigating an incident reported in Lambeth. Spacey is not named in the statement, which centres on an incident from 2008 where ‘it is alleged a man assaulted another man’. According to the report in Variety, the man, now 32, was 23 when the alleged incident happened. At the time, Spacey was artistic director of The Old Vic theatre in London. He is accused of performing oral sex on a man who had passed out after smoking pot with the actor. Spacey allegedly warned him to never tell anyone what happened.

This news comes shortly after actor Anthony Rapp told Buzzfeed of an incident from his youth, where at the age of 14 Spacey allegedly made an aggressive and unwanted advance on him. After indefinitely suspending the production of the final season of House of Cards, Netflix fell under further scrutiny after CNN reported on eight accusations of sexual misconduct by Spacey on the set of the show, where he is said to have created an incredibly toxic work environment. This week, Vulture also interviewed an anonymous accuser who went into painful detail about the relationship he had with Spacey when he was 14. I heartily recommend you read the full piece, although this paragraph is worth a particular focus.

I would call him a pedophile and a sexual predator. When I turned 25, I looked at every 14-year-old boy I could see, to try to understand what those men had seen, because I still on some level thought I had been a tiny adult. That whole year I was 25, I tried to just see the ones who were like six-foot-two, and 200 pounds — they all looked like children. They all looked like somebody who was 10 years old four years ago. Nobody looks fuckable. Nobody … I couldn’t conjure it up. I couldn’t conjure up the desire. It was nauseating to think of having sex with them, and that was, I think, certainly when I understood, on a very deep level, these men were fucked up. Up until then, I just thought about him as somebody who had really done me wrong and tried to rape me, but not as somebody who had functioned as a predator. And then, if you’re interested in sexual predation, you start to read about it, and you realize all these patterns and techniques, and it all kind of falls within a set of practices.

Are Kristina and Dean Still Friends After Bachelor in Paradise? An Investigation

It’s practically impossible to discuss season four of Bachelor in Paradise without acknowledging the cringe-worthy love triangle that developed between Dean Unglert, Kristina Schulman, and Danielle «D-Lo» Lombard on that beach in Mexico. Although Kristina and Dean started out strong and even spent time together during the infamous shutdown at the beginning of the season, that all changed when D-Lo came into the picture, forming an awkward-as-hell love triangle that revealed Dean’s true colors to hordes of now-former fangirls. So, how does Kristina really feel about things now that the cameras aren’t rolling?

The BIP star has had a handful of interviews lately, including an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and a chat on the Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast,» in which she hashed out her post-season thoughts. Below we’ve outlined her most notable statements for all you die-hard Bachelor Nation members who are itching for the latest scoop.

On how it felt watching the entire season:

While chatting with Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti on their podcast, Kristina said that she was watching back the entire season for the first time along with the rest of America. While doing so, she got to see parts of D-Lo and Dean’s relationship that she didn’t witness in person. «I was believing that Dean and I had something, but I was not seeing that he also had something with Danielle until watching it back.» When Ben asked whether Paradise was as much of an emotional rollercoaster for her in person as it was for viewers, Kristina admitted, «I would say not as emotional as watching it back. Whenever I was in the moment, it was just the relationship between myself and Dean. I wasn’t focused on anyone around me, really, because I was trying to figure out for myself: what am I doing with this?»

On how her relationship with Danielle has evolved:

A lot has changed since D-Lo and Kristina both appeared on Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor. Back then, the two were «friends,» Kristina said. «I mean, she wasn’t the person I would text on the daily like with other girls, but she and I were friendly; we’d comment on each others’ social media posts, and we spent a week in Vegas together before that. I considered her a friend more than an acquaintance; not like a best friend.»

But since leaving Paradise, there’s certainly an awkward energy between the two. They recently spent a whole 24 hours together for fellow cast member Raven Gates’s birthday and managed to keep things cordial for the festivities. «It’s like we knew the discomfort and the awkwardness was there, but neither of us was saying anything. It is what it is now.» She added, «I don’t really have anything against Danielle. Yes, it’s awkward, but I know we’ll be hanging out in the same circles in the future and we’ll just have to get over it, to be honest.»

On how she feels about Dean now:

Similar to how she feels about D-Lo, Kristina admitted that she doesn’t have anything against Dean. «I just think we’re young and we are learning and I know both of them are getting a little — well, a lot — of backlash on social media. I’m not going to burn all my bridges and just be upset with them; I just want to rise above and keep talking to Danielle and Dean.»

It doesn’t look like she’s ready to cut off Dean completely just yet, either. In an interview with HuffPost‘s Here to Make Friends podcast, she explained, «I’m trying to be friendly — understanding him a little bit more and what he was trying to do. Look, yes, it hurt me in the process a whole lot, but I try to see the best in people . . . I’m trying to understand where he was coming from.»

On how she felt after learning that Dean loved her:

During the finale after show, Dean confessed that he «loved» Kristina while on Bachelor in Paradise, despite his decision to pursue D-Lo. Kristina’s reaction to his confession? «To be honest, I think he may have said something like that prior to giving me a rose,» she explained on the Almost Famous podcast. «Partially that’s why I stuck around, to see if he meant it. Hearing it again, it kind of melted my heart just a little, I will admit. But at the same time, it’s like why now? So much has happened since and it’s always too bad to realize it’s too late.» Too late is right!

On how she felt after seeing Dean’s cryptic Instagram:

The same evening the episode aired showing Kristina’s BIP departure, Dean posted an Instagram picture (see above) that had fans confused AF. The photo showed the two looking smitten while in Kentucky, and the caption read, «You were way out of my league.» Though this pissed off many Bachelor Nation members, Kristina didn’t really seem to read into it much, admitting to Ashley I. and Ben that it’s simply a nod to a song by Fitz and the Tantrums that they both like. «I don’t know, maybe he really feels like I was out of his league,» she said nonchalantly.

On whether there’s still hope for a future relationship with Dean:

Though Kristina is certainly still reeling from Dean’s f*ckboy ways, it doesn’t exactly look like the door is 100 percent shut for the two — maybe only about 75 percent shut. During the finale’s after show, when Dean was on the hotseat, Kristina turned to him to say, «I hope that whoever is next in your relationship that you will never treat them like that. I think I took a lot.» But she was also (somehow) very sweet to him, adding, «I’ll always have that love for you. It was intense, but it was real, and I’ve never experienced that before. I will always have a special place in my heart for you, Dean.»

On top of that, when she, Dean, and D-Lo chatted about their love triangle with Ellen, the host straight-up asked whether Kristina would ever be open to rekindling the flame with Dean. Her answer was (for some godforsaken reason) pretty open-ended: «Only if this guy learns from his mistakes.» Sheesh.

On what she has learned in hindsight:

«We always hear what we want to hear, but you have to listen to what people are actually saying, and I think in those moments, I was only hanging onto all the positive things Dean was saying,» she said on the «Always Famous» podcast. «I should’ve seen a little bit more clearly that he was truly investing his time in someone else and I should’ve let that happen in that case. I definitely learned not to hang on as much as I did.» Preach, girl!

On whether she’d ever be the Bachelorette:

It’s definitely a possibility for Kristina, although she would have a lot of thinking to do if given the chance. «If asked to be the next Bachelorette, I would have to probably consider when the time comes to it because again, watching Bachelor in Paradise, it was a lot of emotion,» she told Ashley I. during the podcast. «It’s hard to see yourself that emotional. When the opportunity presents itself, if it does, I’ll consider it then. But for now, I have to kind of learn from Bachelor in Paradise and move on from that.»

Are All American Actors Posh? A Serious Pajiba Investigation

Working class actors in Britain are a dying breed. They do exist, but they are a marked minority.

James McAvoy, son of a psychiatric nurse and a builder, addressed the increasing preponderance of the posh and wealthy in the arts thus:

«That’s a frightening world to live in, because as soon as you get one tiny pocket of society creating all the arts, our culture starts to become representative not of everybody but of one tiny part, and that’s not fair to begin with, but it’s also damaging for society.»

Julie Walters, daughter of a postal clerk and a builder and decorator, has also expressed her thoughts on the matter in the past:

People like me wouldn’t have been able to go to college today. I could because I got a full grant. I don’t know how you get into it now. Kids write to me all the time and I think: I don’t know what to tell you.

Working-class kids aren’t represented. Working-class life is not referred to. It’s really sad. I think it means we’re going to get loads more middle-class drama. It will be middle-class people playing working-class people, like it used to be.

In Britain, the arts are once again becoming the preserve of those who can afford to dabble in them, and this is a quiet cultural tragedy. It is something that saddens and angers me on a regular basis. Just the other day, as I was stewing in righteous class indignation, I caught myself looking Westwards. ‘But what about across the pond?’ I thought. America, despite occasional self-mythologising claims to the contrary, has a pretty incredibly class-stratified society—but there are still differences to how things are in Britain, with its centuries of heavily hewn and deeply worn divides. Maybe there, in the Land Of Opportunity, things were different.

I decided to investigate.

All those famous American actors—are they American Posh?

This would of course be a rigorous and scientific investigation, so it would need units, a scale.

But how to measure the poshness?


With the Knava patented Walters-Cumberbatch Scale. One one end, Julie Walters—as already mentioned the daughter of a postal clerk and a builder and decorator. And on the other end, Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch—whose grandfather was a well-known and prominent member of London high society, and whose great-grandfather was Queen Victoria’s consul general in Turkey and Lebanon (!).

Scary Spice Is Reportedly Under Investigation For Possible Witness Tampering

Heidi Klum and Mel B. arriving together at the 'Beauty & Essex' VMA after party

The details of Mel B’s messy divorce from Stephen Belafonte have, so far, followed a bit of a formula. Allow me to put my glasses on and approach the chalkboard. If X represents drama and Y equals the length of this mess, then X = Y + (shit Stephen Belafonte has done x The Nanny). For those following along at home, the solution for X is = VERY MUCH DRAMA. But it always seemed like any drama was the result of Stephen being Stephen. Well, TMZ has a new development, and it looks like Mel B might have found herself representing X in a sticky legal situation.

Mel B and Stephen faced off in court for the first time last Friday. Stephen reportedly showed up extremely late. Mel B’s lawyers asked the judge to modify the details of Mel B’s case against her former nanny, Lorraine Gilles, from civil harassment to domestic violence. The lawyers were arguing the alleged relationship between Mel B, Nanny Lorraine, and Stephen, classify any harassment as a domestic issue. That would, in turn, make it easier for Mel B’s restraining order to become a permanent one.

Anyway, onto the most recent issue. TMZ says that Sisterhood of Hip Hop star and rapper Siya was prepared to testify on behalf of Stephen in a future court date. Siya filed a police report yesterday claiming that Mel B pulled some Mafia Spice tactics and allegedly sent some intimidating texts to Siya strongly encouraging her to keep her mouth shut. Siya’s testimony would have allegedly contradicted any claims Mel B made that Stephen was an abusive asshole.

Siya was also going to testify about Mel B’s alleged drug use. On September 1st, Stephen Belafonte filed documents accusing Mel B of spicing up her life with cocaine and booze. Mel B vaguely denied the accusations, saying that she refuses “to be a victim” and that the truth would come out in court. If the text messages on Siya’s phone are true, it sounds like Mel B might have been afraid of what alleged truths Siya was going to expose in court.

TMZ says that Siya went to the police with the text messages, and police have reportedly opened a felony investigation against Mel B.

Sources close to Mel B are side-eyeing Siya’s allegations of witness intimidation. They also doubt Siya’s relationship to Mel B. Siya reportedly claims she was good friends with both Stephen and Mel B, whereas sources close to Mel B claim Mel B has only met Siya a handful of times.

I don’t exactly know what Mel B allegedly said in those text messages. Maybe Mel B can argue that she was just texting Spice Girls lyrics. “Get your act together we could be just fine – see, that’s just Wannabe. And I’m sure that part that says ‘or else’ was just my phone’s attempt at autocorrecting zigazigah.

Can We Talk About This Insane Murder Investigation Going on in Sweden Right Now?

This is not a movie yet, but it almost certainly will be before it’s all said and done, and given the twists and turns it’s taking, it may need an eight-part limited series to cover all the angles. Niels Arden Oplev will probably direct it, and it will star Noomi Rapace as journalist Kim Wall, and Alexander Skarsgård as the eccentric, temperamental inventor Peter Madsen.

Madsen is a Danish inventor, a self-taught aerospace engineer. Until a few weeks ago, he was building rockets. He had hopes of becoming the first person to build a homemade riding rocket into space. In 2008, he built a homemade submarine using $ 200,000 he crowdsourced. The submarine was pulled out of commission in 2011 for repairs and relaunched in April 2017.

On August 11th, Madsen was set to sail the submarine, but abruptly texted a crew member to cancel the trip the night before. Meanwhile, on the night before, the submarine set sail with only two people aboard: Madsen and journalist Kim Wall. It left Refshaleøen around 7 p.m. and was spotted again the next morning around 10:30 a.m. About 30 minutes later, the submarine sank. Madsen, however, was rescued by a private boat. The Swedish journalist, Kim Wall, was reported missing by her boyfriend.

Madsen was subsequently charged with homicide. The police accused him of sabotaging the submarine in order to hide evidence of the murder of Kim Wall. Madsen initially denied killing Wall, saying that he dropped her off safely at the tip of Refshale Island the night before.

Three days later, investigators concluded that Madsen intentionally sabotaged the submarine.

Yesterday, the case took another twist when Madsen changed his story, confessing to police that Wall died in an accident on the submarine and that he buried the body at sea. Sounds perfectly sane, right? Journalist dies when, say, she falls and hits her head, and instead of radioing authorities to report her death and bringing her body to shore as soon as possible, Madsen decides to bury the woman’s body at sea?


Soon after revising his story, investigators found a body of a woman, although it was missing its head, legs, and arms. Authorities haven’t yet positively identified the torso, and they say it may take days. It was found, by the way, by a passing cyclist.

Madsen, by the way, is known for being argumentative and temperamental. Wall, meanwhile, was set to move to Beijing, where she’d recently signed a lease. The investigation has riveted Scandinavia for days, according to the Times:

For some Danes, the mystery had the air of the Scandinavian crime thrillers for which the region is known. «This story is endlessly fascinating and as in any good crime novel we find the truth piece by piece,» said Lone Theils, the author of «Fatal Crossing,» a novel about two young girls who go missing on a ferry.

«There’s still a lot of mystery and lots of speculation. Everybody here has their own theories on what happened. I haven’t been anywhere at dinner or coffee with more than two people where this story didn’t come up. People share what they’ve heard and what they think.»

What’s the truth? Well, clearly he killed her. What was his motive? Did he chop up her body? What was his account of her accident? (Police are keeping details under wraps while the investigation is ongoing.)
