Roman Polanski Accused Of Raping Another Woman — A German Actress When She Was Only 15

no title

Such disturbing allegations…

According to The New York Times, former German actress Renate Langer is accusing director Roman Polanski of raping her when she was 15, making her the fourth woman to publicly accuse him of sexual assault.

The now-61-year-old says the alleged incident happened at a house in Gstaad in February 1972 after he had shown interest in casting her in a movie.

A month later, the filmmaker apparently apologized, offered her a small part in his movie Che?, and allegedly raped her again at a house in Rome where she tried to defensively attack him with a bottle of wine and a bottle of perfume.

Langer filed a report with Swiss police, who are still trying to determine whether they could move forward with a criminal complaint. While Switzerland has eliminated its statute of limitations on child sex abuse cases, the law still limits prosecution on older incidents.

Renate did not previously report Polanski to authorities out of concern for her now-deceased parents. She said:

The Manson Family Murders Are Just One Of Hollywood's Darkest Moments

no title

The news that Quentin Tarantino is doing his own take on the Manson Family murders has renewed interest in the crime spree that shocked the nation.

If you're not sure why it remains one of the bloodiest stains on the streets of Tinseltown, here's the short version:

Not only was movie star Sharon Tate (seen above in her husband Roman Polanski's film The Fearless Vampire Killers) murdered, she was done so in brutal fashion — while eight-and-a-half months pregnant. Four other people were murdered that night after Charles Manson's followers broke into the couple's Los Angeles mansion.

And one of the most disturbing parts? The motive for the crime has never been confirmed as Manson didn't even know Polanski, Tate, or their friends. Police even theorize he meant to kill the home's previous tenant, a record producer who had snubbed him.

Breitbart News Says Milo Yiannopoulos' Pedophilia Comments Are Bad… But Lena Dunham Is Worse!

no title

Once you offend Breitbart News, the people who brought us the headline "Trannies Whine About Hilarious Bruce Jenner Billboard," you may need to rethink your life.

After Milo Yiannopoulos' comments in defense of pedophilia between an older gay man and a young gay teen went viral, it looks like he may have finally found the line.

The professional troll has already had his gig as keynote speaker at CPAC and his book deal canceled. We'd heard Breitbart was considering dropping their not-so-golden boy over his comments, but now we've heard straight from the horse's mouth.

Speaking on the company's Sirius XM radio show Tuesday morning, Editor-In-Chief Alex Marlow said:

"It was something that was a total surprise to people in the Breitbart organization that there is video that surfaced that appeared to show him justifying sex between an adult and a minor, at least in certain circumstances which was very troubling and upsetting."

Oh, good. An understandable reaction. Buuuuuuut that's when Marlow started to justify it with context:

Exiled Director Roman Polanski Wants To Return To The U.S. To Settle 1977 Child Rape Case

Roman Polanski

Exiled director Roman Polanski is ready to return stateside to settle that controversial child rape case from 1977.

In case you need a refresher, the Oscar winning filmmaker fled to Europe after pleading guilty to U.S. charges for having sex with a 13-year-old girl at Jack Nicholson's home in 1977.

At the time, Polanski made a plea deal with the now-deceased judge Laurence Rittenband to spend 48 days at Chino State Prison… and after he was released after serving 42 of those 48 days, Rittenband had a change of heart and ordered Polanski to spend up to 50 years behind bars.

Cue Polanski packing his bags and fleeing to Europe as a fugitive.

In 2009, the Chinatown director was captured in Switzerland and spent 334 more days in custody while U.S. authorities unsuccessfully attempted to extradite him.

Now, TMZ reports the 83-year-old's attorney Harland Braun wants U.S. courts to honor the original plea deal and unseal secret testimony that proves the agreement so that his client can travel freely around the world.

The Polish government isn't letting Roman Polanski off the hook that easily!

Back in the '70s, the Oscar winning filmmaker fled to Europe after pleading guilty to U.S. charges for sleeping with a 13-year-old girl in 1977.

But it looks like the Chinatown director will have to face a fresh extradition to the U.S. — because on Tuesday, Polish officials announced they would appeal a court decision not to force the 82-year-old to face U.S. courts.

Adrien Brody Believes Woody Allen & Roman Polanski's Sexual Assault Allegations Are 'Not Something To Focus On' — SMH!

adrien brody defends woody allen roman polanski

Cannes was certainly not drama free this year as a rape joke at the opening ceremony and a letter penned by Ronan Farrow thrust the allegations of sexual assault against Roman Polanski and Woody Allen back into the headlines.

As a result, several actors who've worked with Allen have since been asked about the separate controversies. On Monday, Adrien Brody addressed the topic on Jenny McCarthy's radio show Dirty, Sexy, Funny, and suggested that an artist's personal life should be separated from their body of work. Oh no.
