Ben Affleck: Multiple Sexual Harassment Videos Resurface Amidst Growing Scandal

It’s hard to think of a celebrity who’s been who’s been at once so unfathomably successful and so transparently troubled as Ben Affleck.

With two Oscars, several successful turns behind the camera as director, and a lucrative multi-feature gig as one of the most iconic characters in cinema, Affleck has the kind of career most leading men can only dream of.

And yet, it’s impossible to talk about the 45-year-old without mentioning the persistent dark side that seems to have plagued him at least since young adulthood.

We’ve seen Affleck struggle with alcoholism and endure a difficult divorce that considerable damage to his public image.

He’s been accused of cheating on his wife, gambling compulsively, and indulging in fits of rage indiscriminately.

And now, Affleck may be on the verge of most sordid scandal of his career thanks to a pair of newlt resurfaced videos that show the actoe engaged in some truly unsettling behavior.

On Tuesday night, fans were stunned by allegations that Affleck groped actress Hilarie Burton during an appearance on MTV’s TRL.

Now, video of the incident has emerged, and it’s every bit as unnerving as it sounds:

Yes, at 30 years old, Ben–who was already an established star in Hollywood–took it upon himself to “tweak” the breast of a 20-year-old up and coming media personality in front of a crowd and a camera crew.

Burton laughed off the encounter in the clip above, but she tweeted last night that she “laughed to keep from crying.”

Sadly, that’s not the only example of Ben engaging in egregious misconduct with a young female journalist.

The clip below, shot in 2004, shows Ben pulling a Canadian TV host into his lap and embracing her while encouraging her to do the remainder of the show topless and asking to see more cleavage.

Needless to say, the footage is upsetting, to say the least:

At the 4:00 mark, Ben also mocks people suffering from cerebral palsy. 

The footage was shot over a decade ago, but it’s worth noting that Affleck was 33 years old at the time.

Earlier today, Ben issued an apoplogy for the Burton incident, tweeting:

“I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize.”

He has yet to respond to the uproar over the second clip.

We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Ric Flair in Critical Condition, Facing “Multiple Organ Problems”

We have an update on the status of wrestling legend Ric Flair.

We just wish it were a more positive update.

As previously reported, Flair was admitted to a hospital near Atlanta last week and then placed in a medically-induced coma as his condition worsened.

He underwent significant surgery, which sources initially connected to past heart problems the former WCW and WWE champion had admitted were a result of heavy drinking over the years.

But Melinda Morris Zanoni, the CEO of Legacy Talent LLC and a close friend of Flair’s, later went on record as saying the issue was NOT heart related.

Either way, Flair came out of the procedure on Monday and has been resting under doctor’s supervision ever since.

This doesn’t mean he’s out of the woods, however.

Wendy Barlow released a statement on Facebook on Wednesday afternoon addressing her fiancee’s ongoing condition and rumors that have circulated online since news of his health surfaced.

“Just want to give an update to my friends and family as I have been unable to talk on the phone without crying and just feel shocked over events,” Barlow wrote, adding;’

“I took Ric to the hospital Friday night with severe abdominal pain. From that moment on it all seems like a nightmare … multiple organ problems.”

Barlow did not specify just what caused these organ problems.

“I want everyone to know he still needs prayers as he is still in critical condition,” she added.

“No, he did not have colon surgery… I don’t know how the media comes up with their stories.

“I have been by his side since Friday and will continue to make sure he is getting the best care possible. Thanks for all of the support and love.”

wendy statement

It’s unclear at the moment whether or not Flair is still in a coma.

He’s one of the most respected wrestlers of all time, having worked in every major organization over a career than spanned over five decades.

In total, the “Nature Boy” has held 31 championship belts.

A two-time WWE Hall-of-Famer, Flair had been in the news prior to this health scare because ESPN will air a documentary about him in November.

He spoke to reporters about the project just days before he was admitted to the hospital.

We will continue to send our thoughts to Flair’s family and hope he makes a full recovery from whatever ails him.
