Rashida Jones did exit Toy Story 4 early on in the project's development, but it wasn't because she was creeped out by Pixar co-founder John Lasseter.

The Angie Tribeca star and her writing partner Will McCormack issued a joint statement on the nature of their departure from the animated film following Lasseter's announcement that he will be stepping down from his position as head of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation.

After the animator's memo to staff went public, multiple allegations surfaced detailing years of Lasseter making his employees uncomfortable with unwanted hugs and inappropriate touching.

One source even claimed that Jones and McCormack left Toy Story 4 early on after Lasseter made an "unwanted advance" toward her.

The writing duo clarified the rumors on Tuesday, admitting it wasn't Lasseter that made them exit the project, but Pixar's general treatment of female and minority employees.

In a joint statement to The New York Times, they wrote:

John Lasseter's Alleged Misconduct Exposed! Did Rashida Jones Exit Toy Story 4 Over An 'Unwanted Advance' From The Pixar Co-Founder?

Sounds like Disney has been using all its Fantasia brooms to sweep years of in-house drama under the rug.

On Tuesday, John Lasseter stepped down from his position as head of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation after acknowledging "missteps" in which he made his employees "feel disrespected or uncomfortable" over the years.

After the executive shared the memo to his staff, tongues began to wag about the type of environment Lasseter ran at the imaginative company — which, according to sources, included lots of inappropriate touching. Though it wasn't just company employees Lasseter apparently made feel uncomfortable.

According to a Hollywood Reporter source, Rashida Jones — who is credited as a writer on Toy Story 4 with her then-partner Will McCormack — exited the project early on after Lasseter made an unwanted advance toward her.

Disney declined to comment on the alleged incident, however a studio source told THR that Jones's departure was over "creative differences."

Unlike Jones, unfortunately, Pixar employees couldn't walk away from the co-founder's alleged behavior. One longtime company employee said Lasseter was just as well known for hugging employees as he was for "grabbing, kissing, making comments about physical attributes."

Multiple sources say some women at Pixar routinely turned their heads quickly when encountering him to avoid his kisses. Others even used a move dubbed "the Lasseter" to

Elders should be respected, not swindled!

Yet music legend Quincy Jones claims he's the victim of financial elder abuse in the court battle over Michael Jackson royalties.

The case went to trial this week in L.A. this week, and now reports are saying the record producer has filed a new claim against MJ's estate.

According to TMZ, Quincy says Sony Music and MJJ Productions took advantage of his age and pulled an accounting trick that screwed him out of a large chunk of revenue from a number of hits he produced.

The documents allege that the studios labeled a sum of money from Jackson's music as profits, opposed to royalties, which the 84-year-old claims he is entitled to.

Rashida Jones' dad — who produced classic MJ albums Off The Wall, Bad, and Thriller — is suing for at least $10 million and is expected to testify next week.

We hope the man gets what he's due!

Porn Star Says Netflix's Hot Girls Wanted Docuseries Exposed Her Without Her Consent!

no title

Netflix's Hot Girls Wanted was a documentary that gave an inside look at what the porn industry was like for young women just getting started.

The followup six-part docuseries Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On is meant to be a further exploration of what being in the industry is like in the digital age.

Unfortunately, it seems directors Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus, along with exec producer Rashida Jones, were a little careless and made a huge information age mistake with one of their subjects.

Gia Paige appears in the episode entitled Money Shot, and she says the filmmakers knowingly displayed her real first and middle name in a scene, despite her request that the episode be re-edited. And just that much information being out there is enough to cause the adult performer major problems.

In an interview with The Daily Dot, Paige says it only took a week after the April 21 release for strangers to get everything:
