Roy Moore

A woman has come forward claiming Alabama GOP candidate Roy Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her when she was just 14 years old. Three other women allege he attempted to have relationships with them when they were all 18 or under.

Moore — who is currently running for a U.S. Senate seat — is taking a page out of Donald Trump's playbook and calling the allegations "fake news."

According to Leigh Corfman, she and her mother were approached by then-32-year-old assistant district attorney back in 1979. He offered to watch Corfman while her mother went inside the courthouse for a custody hearing.

The experienced designer told The Hollywood Reporter she first felt inclined to open up about it when Donald Trump's Access Hollywood tapes came out. She shared:

"I kind of buried it for a long time until Trump came out with his 'Grab 'em by the pussy' thing. When that happened, I started reeling. People think that's a joke, but that really happened to me."

Susan recounted her horrifying experience, explaining how she went to Robert's trailer to drop off some clothes for him. Her hands were full, and while reaching a rack, she says he "jumped up" and grabbed her crotch "as hard as he could" under her dress.

Jean-Claude Van Damme & Green Power Ranger Jason David Frank Almost Got Into A Fight At Comic-Con — Get The Crazy Story!

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsComic-ConViolenceMMA

no title

A brawl from the stuff of Comic-Con fan-fiction nearly became a reality when Jean-Claude Van Damme *almost* threw down with Green Power Ranger Jason David Frank over the weekend!

For those who don't know, the two stars have had an ongoing beef since Van Damme and Frank exchanged nasty words at the 1995 premiere of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. Yes, this feud goes way back.

Frank publically challenged Van Damme to a fight in 2010, but the Bloodsport star never responded… until La Mole Comic-Con on Saturday!

Frank was asked to share his green room with the Belgian action star and his 20-person entourage at the Mexico City convention. Frank agreed, despite their turbulent past, but soon learned Van Damme was still holding a grudge.

After signing autographs at the event, Frank went back to his green room to find that Van Damme's security staff was blocking off anyone from entering — including the person the room was arranged for in the first place.

Rather than make a stink about it, Frank secured a different room from an event promoter and got some food and rest while waiting for Van Damme to leave his room. As the MMA fighter was speaking with the promoter about a future engagement, a member of Van Damme's entourage told him that the action star insisted they take a photo together before leaving.

After Van Damme's crew came out with a bunch of cameras, Frank knew it was "all a setup" — and he was right, because that's when Van Damme confronted him demanding an apology!

Speaking to FloCombat, the Green Ranger remembered:
