    Of course, what he should do is claim that he’s the victim of anti-semitism - a victim of the trope of grasping, greedy Jewish plutocrats wanting to despoil innocent shiksas as a form of racial revenge.

    The fact that he’s bang to rights shouldn’t stand in the way of his right to take refuge in identity politics, after all.

    Given the curious nature of that business and that town, haven't his victims essentially been blackmailing him all this time? It's surprising he hasn't had them all done for extortion. I mean, who would go to Hollywood without the promise of lurid sexual escapades#Asking4It
    "Plenty of strikers can score goals," he said, gesturing to the famous old stands casting shadows around us.

    "But a lot have found it difficult wearing the number 9 shirt for The Arsenal."

    It would appear that hyperbole is the new reason.
    F˙cking hell, now his wife's left him! There's loyalty.

    Oh, that's fair enough, I think. It seems clear he actually "left" her decades ago, after all.

    Perfect opportunity for her to get the best financial settlement out of the divorce.

    I would have thought he could drag the rest of Hollywood down with him. The threat of that is normally enough to put something like this to bed, as long as you threaten before it goes public.

    That would be superb.

    It would at least be fair and consistent. And I still wouldn't care. Hollywood doesnt purport to be a fair, just, diverse and inclusive environment or a meritocratic industry. Quite how one vacuous celebrity comes to receive more attention than another is of literally no interest to me.

    The funny thing is they will never get round to going after the music industry because the young girls blowing the rock bands were not being promised anything in return. Its fine to treat them like **** and tell them to **** off afterwards but if you promise them anything in return its suddenly coercion/abuse of power/rape. If you think about it, that is a bit ****ed up.

    An excellent point, p. During Yewtree, legend has it that Bill Wyman, Jimmy Page and various others lawyered up and rocked up to their local plod trying to pre-empt the long arm of the law. To a man, they were told to go forth and sin no more because old rockers fvcking schoolchildren wasn't the crime du jour and - by the way - could you sign my copy of Houses Of The Holy, Mr Page?

    Erm, the groupies didn't expect to get married to their targets. They just fancied the socks of them and wanted some fun. No comparison at all, as long as they're old enough.

    And not promising anything is precisely the point. It makes it merely consensual sex and not an abuse of power.
