Blaze Bernstein May Have Been Sexually Pursing Friend When He Was Stabbed More Than 20 Times

The 20-year-old man arrested on charges that he allegedly killed his friend Blaze Bernstein told investigators that Bernstein had made unwanted advances toward him before his disappearance, Fox News reported.

Salma Hayek Says Harvey Weinstein Sexually Harassed And Threatened To Kill Her

Film producer Harvey Weinstein has been accused of sexual abuse by numerous women. Actress Salma Hayek is the latest woman to come forward, revealing in an op-ed for The New York Times about ongoing harassment she experienced from the Hollywood mogul.

“Harvey Weinstein was a passionate cinephile, a risk taker, a patron of talent in film, a loving father and a monster,” she said.

The actress opened up about wanting to collaborate with Weinstein on her movie “Frida”: “The Weinstein empire, which was then Miramax, had become synonymous with quality, sophistication and risk taking — a haven for artists who were complex and defiant. It was everything that Frida was to me and everything I aspired to be.”

The partnership proved predatory according to Hayek. She said that Weinstein continually pushed her to be sexy in the role, pressuring her to do a sex scene with

Roman Polanski Is Being Investigated For Allegedly Sexually Assaulting 10-Year-Old Girl

Sexual abuse accusations continue to surface in Hollywood. Authorities are now investigating a new sexual assault accusation against director Roman Polanski. Despite its severity — the accusation is that he molested a child when she was 10 — he can’t be prosecuted as the statute of limitations has run up.

As The Los Angeles Times reported, the accusation comes from artist Marianne Barnard, who came forward to the police in October. She says Polanski molested her during a photoshoot at Will Rogers State Beach back in 1975. She was a child model, but says that she became quickly uncomfortable when he asked her to pose naked with a fur coat.

“Then at some point I realized my mom had gone. I don’t know where she went and I didn’t really register her leaving but she was no longer there,” she said per The Sun. “Then he molested me.”

Barnard said that actresses sharing
