Even since the recent sexual misconduct allegations surrounding Harvey Weinstein were brought to the surface and the public, the celebrity world has come under fire. It seems like every time we wake up, a new celebrity is accused of some sort of sexual assault and/or harassment. From Kevin Spacey to Louis C.K. to Dustin Hoffman to Sylvester Stallone, and countless other men, it would appear as though the entire ship that is Hollywood is slowly going down one star after another. At this point, the question is not when will another celebrity be accused of doing something awful, but which celebrity is next?
Based on rumors, hearsay, innuendo, and age-old allegations from yesteryear, we have compiled a list of celebrities who may get exposed next. Keep in mind that we are not throwing allegations at anybody, and at the end of the day, it's all unproven allegations anyway. We are merely reporting suspicious stories surrounding celebrities that have been reported over the years. Our readers are free to do with these speculations and hearsay what they will, but we are not stating anything that has not already been either reported, alleged, rumored, or speculated by other people in the past. Anyway, disclaimer over. Go ahead and read on.
15 John Travolta
Strange rumors have been swirling around John Travolta for several years now. One of the strangest rumors originally hit the presses in 2012 when an anonymous masseur filed a lawsuit against John Travolta claiming sexual assault and battery as the reason. Travolta rebutted that this was merely a case of "complete fiction and fabrication." Eventually, both lawsuits from both parties were dropped. As of this writing, another masseur has come forward against John Travolta as early as this year. This time, citing an incident from 2000 of sexual battery. A police officer who investigated the alleged incident disputed that the details "do not meet the elements of battery...or sexual battery."
14 Bryan Singer
Rumors regarding Bryan Singer's alleged fetish for underage boys have swirled around Hollywood. They seem to be slowly coming to the surface as we speak. So much so that Jessica Chastain called him out on Twitter about the sexual misconduct rumors regarding his name. That seemed to be the starting point for when his alleged victims started to come forward. First was a young man on Twitter named Justin Smith who claimed in a 14-tweet long thread that the director tried to see his penis and tried to "stick his finger inside [him]." It was at this time we were reminded of some 1997 allegations where he was accused of asking minors to strip naked for a scene, though that lawsuit was dropped due to lack of evidence.
13 David Bowie
Dead men may tell no tales, but perhaps their alleged victims do. There was a time when at the height of his fame, Bowie was romantically linked to a 14-year-old named Lori Maddox (sometimes Mattix). In fact, Maddox has recalled that Bowie even went as far as to take her virginity upon seducing her. Technically she "consented" to the act, but seeing as she was underaged, underaged girls cannot properly consent to sex when under the legal age and with a much older man. Therefore, Bowie was a statutory r*pist. Due to rumors, we have reason to believe this was no isolated incident, and if anyone is willing to come forward, maybe we'll find out that Bowie had slept with multiple underage girls.
12 Jimmy Page
As with many rock stars, Led Zeppelin frontman Jimmy Page's life behind the scenes saw him surrounded by groupies. One infamous groupie from his life was Lori Maddox — yes the same Lori Mattix who says she lost her virginity to David Bowie . When they met, Page was 28 years old. Maddox was 14. A man with a flair for dramatics, Page had his manager "kidnap" her (as she put it in a documentary) after he promised that he'll "have her" upon their first meeting. So his manager forced her into a car and drove her to Page's house, and a relationship blossomed from there. Despite the rather cinematic meeting of the two, Maddox recollects her relationship with Page with fond memories, despite the massive age gap. Page must have a thing for young girls as he was dating a woman 50 years younger than him in 2015.
11 Dan Schneider
Dan Schenider is the Nickelodeon producer who helped develop shows like All That, Zoey 101, Drake & Josh, and iCarly (among many others). There have been rumors about him being a suspected pedophile who sexually assaulted the child actors of his shows for years, but they were all just rumors and hearsay. Nothing concrete enough to condemn the man or blow anything out of proportion. These rumors started to garner more attention when RedState ran an article about Schneider called "The Next Big Hollywood Sex Scandal is Already Breaking... at Nickelodeon." In it, the writer compiles a series of Reddit posts that were apparently made by actors who worked for Schneider and were abused by him. It also goes into detail about sexual misconduct rumors surrounding him. As of now, no stories have been publicly confirmed by Schneider or anyone who worked for him.
10 Casey Affleck
Casey Affleck is already in the midst of a major storm of sexual allegations that came at him in 2010 from two former co-workers. One from Amanda White, a producer on Affleck's film I'm Still Here. She alleged that he tried to manipulate her into staying in a hotel with him and when she refused, he violently grabbed her and sent some nasty text messages to her. The same film's cinematographer, Magdalena Gorka, alleged that he drunkenly entered her bedroom while she slept and when she refused his advances, harassed her until she resigned from her job. He wound up settling out of court, but these allegations were brought to the surface in light of his Oscar win.
9 Jared Leto
For the past few years, women have come forward claiming that Jared Leto is a bit of a creep behind the scenes. Some have gone as far as to claim that he sexually assaulted them. He has yet to be taken to court for any such allegations, but the rumors alone have been damning to the state of his character. One of the more infamous stories revolving around Leto that makes the rounds every couple years comes from a Tumblr user alleging an encounter with him that made her "as though [she] was being r*ped." She alleged that while having sex with Leto, she told him he was hurting her during intercourse and he neglected to stop or ease up. Some have even alleged that Leto had s*x with them when they were underage — one girl was 15, another 17.
8 Ric Flair
Ric Flair is many things — a pro wrestler's wrestler, a pop culture icon, and a 16-time World Heavyweight Champion. One thing that Flair is — that not many people call him out on — is a dirty old man. Most men his age are — no surprise there — but when he does some perverted things behind the scenes, it either gets swept under the rug or looked at as a funny story among his peers. Case in point, while travelling from city to city in his heyday as a wrestler, he would pull a "prank" on planes where he'd emerge from the bathroom naked and force the female flight attendants to grope him. When he did this on an infamous plane ride in 2002, he was slapped with a lawsuit that was settled out of court in 2002. These aren't the only sexual assault incidents regarding Ric Flair and more such stories may come to light in the future.
7 Iggy Pop
One of Iggy Pop's more infamous relationships that occurred during his rock career was with the even more infamous groupie Sable Starr. As Pop himself admitted in the song "Look Away," he slept with Starr when she was 13 years old. The way that she speaks of their relationship in the book Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk, it sounds like an abusive relationship. He made her throw away her diaries, her phone numbers, her scrapbook, etc. He basically bullied her and emotionally abused her until they broke up.
6 Rob Lowe
For a huge bulk of his career, Rob Lowe has always had a squeaky-clean image, but that was not quite the case in 1988. It was that year that Lowe was caught up in a messy s*x scandal where he was caught being intimate with a 16-year-old girl on tape. Lowe was in his mid-20s at the time. However, since the tape was filmed in Atlanta, Georgia and the age of consent there at the time was 14 years old, no legal action was taken against Lowe. However, for quite some time, the whole situation was still quite the stain to Lowe's name. Eventually, time went on and this incident was swept under the rug. Hopefully, there aren't any similar skeletons in Lowe's closet that are hiding under the rug waiting to be unveiled.
5 R. Kelly
For as long as R. Kelly has been in the limelight, he's always had a creepy infatuation with underage girls. The proof is in the pudding. This is the same man who illegally married Aaliyah when she was 15 years old in 1994, around the same time he produced her album "Age Ain't Nothing But a Number." The same man who was allegedly featured in a 2002 s*x tape where he was intimate with and urinated on an underaged girl. In the summer of 2017, he was accused by three sets of parents of holding their daughters hostage in a cult, although Kelly and the girls denied that was the case. Keep in mind, this is the creepy stuff we know about regarding R. Kelly. Imagine what kind of creepy stuff we don't know about him that has yet to come to light.
4 Geraldo Rivera
One of the more recent media personalities to be hit with a sexual assault allegation is Matt Lauer, who just lost his job at NBC News due to accusations made against him. In the wake of these allegations, talk show host/reporter Geraldo Rivera came to Lauer's defence by calling the news industry as a whole "a flirty business." In the wake of Rivera's remarks, an old interview between Barbara Walters and Bette Milder resurfaced. In it, Midler recalled when Rivera and his producer came to do an interview with her in the early '70s. With the crew in the other room, they pushed her into a bathroom, pushed two poppers into her nose, and groped her. We can expect more allegations against Rivera coming in the near future.
3 Rick Ross
Rick Ross has yet to be directly accused of sexual assault by anyone, but in 2013, he was once suspected of such misconduct in wake of some suspicious lyrics. For his verse on the song "U.O.E.N.O." Ross said, "Put molly all in her champagne/she ain't even know it/I 3took her home and I enjoyed that/she ain't even know it." As if the implication is not obvious and blatant enough, Ross implied that he drugged a girl, took her home, and had sex with her body. Even if this is just a lyric that isn't based on reality (as Ross backtracked and claimed), he still uttered pro-r*pe lyrics. No wonder why Rebook dropped him from their deal. Perhaps it's time to look at Ross's lyrics with an even more suspicious, critical eye.
2 James Franco
When we look back at the career thus far of James Franco, we come to the conclusion that he has always been kind of a weirdo. The kind of weirdo to post random half-naked selfies that say nothing but "JUMP ROPE." He is also the kind of weirdo to pursue a 17-year-old girl. In 2014, said 17-year-old girl (named Lucy) received a surprise in her Instagram DMs when James Franco made repeated advances toward her to try and rent a hotel room for the two of them while in New York, despite her clearly stating she was under 18. We can only hope that this is merely an isolated incident and that James Franco never imposed creepy behavior on anyone else of any age before.
1 Vince McMahon
Seeing how badly the acting world is getting hit with sexual assault allegations, it's only a matter of time before the sports world is raided next. When that happens, it's a pretty safe bet to say Vince McMahon will be at the top of the list of creeps to get exposed. During the early 90s, WWE had its first female referee, Rita Chatterton. Shortly after her initial introduction, she mysteriously disappeared from television. Years later, Chatterton appeared on Geraldo Rivera's show Now It Can Be Told where she alleged being sexually assaulted by Vince, and then being paid off $5 million in hush money by his wife Linda to keep quiet. The story went quiet after the McMahons sued Rivera, but if these allegations are true, then it could all come back in the news in light of recent events.
