The Sex Scandal That Marked Hollywood

Diario Hoy recalls the celebrities who were the protagonists of rude moments in public places.

Hollywood has always been giving so to speak according to the actions of its members. Especially when there have been moments in your intimate life that crossed the limits and became public ridicule.

It is worth starting in another century with the marriage of the comedian and filmmaker Charles Chaplin, who knew how to mark a milestone for his productions such as Modern Times, for example. In his early years, nearing 40, the man dated a much younger girl named Linda Gray, who was exactly 15, and got her pregnant. Then they passed through the altar and established a large family. What followed was a scandalous divorce where she gave an account of the ill-treatment meted out to her.

At the turn of the times, with the arrival of the 1990s, a woman from an aristocratic family began dating magnates and founded an escort agency that offered her services to Hollywood celebrities. Thus, Heidi Fleiss, known as the “Hollywood Madam”, served almost two years in prison for money laundering and prostitution. She boasted that celebrities visited her when she had the agency, although the only glimpse was of actor Charlie Sheen who was called to testify at the trial. Other names surfaced but were never confirmed: Johnny Depp, Billy Idol, Jack Nicholson, director George Lucas, and Hugh Hefner.

Another case was the discovery of Hugh Grant having sex in a car with a transvestite. There he was in the midst of promoting a film and he was also dating actress Elizabeth Hurley. After this scandal, he gave a statement in a program and apologized to his loved ones.

For his part, Bill Cosby was denounced by 40 women for misconduct and inappropriate sexual behavior. This came at the height of the Me Too movement. So he invited her to his house for acting classes but gave her a sedative. In all cases, very few were successful and were sentenced to 10 years in prison.

One of the references to this market was actor Kevin Spacey, who has also been accused of harassing young minors at leisure or at work. At the time he said: “As those close to me know, I have had relationships with both men and women in my life. I have loved and had romantic encounters with men my whole life and today I have decided to live as a gay. In addition, he went to a clinic to treat his sex addiction. She was then pulled from a series she starred in as well as from some films that were on her agenda.

King of Pop Michael Jackson was also targeted by two children who accused him of abuse. It happened that they invited their families on tour and the incidents happened on more than one occasion. The parties came to a settlement in the private sector where he was awarded $20 million in compensation.
