Former Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein (71), who is currently serving a 23-year prison sentence for sexual assault and rape convictions, has faced additional legal troubles. Recent reports from Variety stated that several new allegations of sexual misconduct have emerged against Weinstein from multiple sources, both within and outside of the entertainment industry.

An aspiring singer Emaza Gibson filed a sexual harassment lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, against Jason Derulo (34), claiming that he signed her to a record deal with sexual intentions, and even made unwanted advances at her after they started working together. She also allege that he turned cold after she rejected his repeated sexual invitations. Emaza Gibson told NBC News, “I have anxiety; I’m traumatized. I’ve dealt with inhumane work situations. … I’m at this point where I’m back to zero and I have nothing.” However, the musician denied the allegations in a video shared on his Instagram handle. “I wouldn’t normally comment but these claims are completely false and hurtful,” he said in the clip.

Brian Foster

The Last of Us actor Ashley Johnson, with six other women, sued her ex-boyfriend Brian W. Foster, alleging sexual assualt, stalking and intentions of emotional stress. Recently, the seven women filed a civil against Foster suit in an LA County court. “Fueled by chronic abuse of drugs and alcohol, Defendant Brian Wayne Foster has, for the last decade, demonstrated a disturbing pattern and practice of chilling and depraved behavior towards women. The women unfortunate enough to have crossed his path were subjected to a common thread of physical and sexual violence as well as mental and emotional abuse. Foster has left a trail of victims whose lives he sought to control through various lies, threats, intimidation, and manipulation,” the lawsuit read. Foster has not responded to the allegations and there is no legal representation for him in the complaint.

Gerard Depardieu

French actor Gerard Depardieu was also embroiled in rape and sexual assault allegations in a 2018 case, but he denied the same. According to a report by Variety, he wrote an open letter in French in the Le Figaro newspaper claiming he’s ‘neither a rapist nor a predator, which was a response to a 2018 lawsuit filed by Charlotte Arnould, who had accused the actor of attacking her on two different instances in his home.
