Cole Sprouse And Lili Reinhart Speak Out Following Sexual Misconduct Claims

Posted on Tue Jun 23rd, 2020 12:00pm PDT       By X17 Staff


It's been a wild week for young Hollywood as a horde of stars have been the subject of sexual assault accusations. Just days after allegations came to light against Ansel Elgort and Justin Bieber, Riverdale's Cole Sprouse, 27, and Lili Reinhart, 23, were two of four cast members outed for alleged misbehavior through a series of mysterious Twitter posts.


On Sunday, Sprouse found himself in Twitter's trending crosshairs when the account @Victori66680029 made four separate posts accusing him of sexual assault dating back to 2013. Additional mystery Tweeters made similar allegations against his Riverdale co-stars Lili Reinhart, Vanessa Morgan and KJ Apa. One of the accounts hinted it was all a hoax by writing, "Do you see how easy it is to lie and you guys will believe it? Vanessa Morgan and Kj Apa didn’t do jack sh**. You will believe anything."

In an effort to set the record straight, Sprouse wasn't wasting any time and quickly sprang into action. The star confidently defended himself and his castmates by stating:


Reinhart backed her boyfriend and co-star by threatening to take legal action against the accusers. In a series of Tweets she said:
    "I have always taken sexual assault allegations seriously. But it was proven that this account was created specifically to create false stories about me and my cast. I can’t think of something more twisted than lying about sexual assault. It invalidates the men and women who are brave enough to come forward with the truth.

    This kind of lie can ruin lives and careers- and I can call it a lie because the person who made the allegations already admitted that the stories were fabricated. We are looking into taking legal action. This kind of sick behavior only harms true survivors. This was incredibly triggering for me and scary because I’ve always supported survivors and believed them. I hope and pray that this does not discourage real survivors from speaking out about their experiences."



Additional Riverdale castmates have come out in support of Sprouse, Reinhart, Morgan and Apa. Including Camila Mendes, who stated:

    "It's incredibly destructive to falsely accuse people of sexual assault. Whatever point this person was trying to make about how quickly people believe what they read, it was not worth damaging the integrity of the me too movement. It’s sickening and doesn’t prove anything except that there are twisted people in this world who have no concern for the consequences of their harmful actions."



Madelaine Petsch also voiced solidarity for her castmates via Twitter:

Posted on Tue Jun 23rd, 2020 11:00am PDT       By X17 Staff



Justin Bieber's world was completely rocked over the weekend when a mystery woman came forth with shocking allegations against the singer stemming from 2014. The woman who goes by the alias 'Danielle', claims Justin sexually assaulted her following a performance at SXSW. Justin quickly went into defense mode by using then-girlfriend Selena Gomez as an alibi and posting receipts in an effort to prove his innocence.. but some fans definitely aren't buying it!


On Monday the singer was spotted looking extra serious while chatting on his cell phone. After adamantly denying the shocking allegations, he blew off some steam by squeezing in a workout at Dogpound Gym. He later hit the studio to work on new music just as wife Hailey Baldwin caught a private flight out of town. The timing of her getaway seems a little suspicious, but apparently she's letting Justin work this one out on his own!

Rachel Green and Phoebe Buffay are united once again! Former Friends co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow sat down for an insightful chat as part of Variety's Actors on Actors series. The duo reminisced some of their favorite Friends moments, discussed working with Steve Carell, and touched on a plethora of other topics.


Throughout the interview, Aniston can be seen flashing her rarely seen 11:11 wrist tattoo, leaving fans wondering just what it means. Aniston was born February 11, which has lead many fans to believe the meaning lies there. It looks like we may never really know as she's managed to keep her lips sealed and won't let the cat out of the bag!


Though she doesn't show it often, cameras have caught glimpses of the tattoo during various red carpet events. Aniston first revealed the ink on June 10, 2019 at the premiere Netflix's Murder Mystery but it wasn't until the 2020 SAG Awards before we really caught a good look. Little do many know, Aniston actually has ANOTHER tattoo on foot. She got the ink back in 2011 as a tribute to her late Welsh Corgi-terrier Noman.
