Hef Speaks Out Over Pal Bill Cosby's Sex Allegations

December 7th, 2014 2:02pm EST
Hugh Hefner
Hugh Hefner has opened up about all the sexual abuse and rape allegations against pal Bill Cosby, saying that the stories about all of the incidents are "saddening."

One such incident came to light early last week, when a woman claimed that she was sexually assaulted by Cosby at Hefner's famed Playboy Mansion back in 1974, when she was just 15 years old.

Judy Huth made the claim in a lawsuit she filed against Cosby on Tuesday, and now the Los Angeles Police Department has officially launched an investigation, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Disturbing fact: Walken was a guest on the yacht of his "Brainstorm" co-car Natalie Wood and her husband, Robert Wagner, when the actress fell overboard and die...

For some odd reason, in our culture, the leaked sex tape does not bring shame upon all parties involved. In fact, if even one of the parties is a celebrity, then it could catapult their career into the stratosphere. Paris Hilton did it and Kim Kardashian followed shortly thereafter. Those tapes made their owners a tidy fortune, but there are some tapes that aren't meant to be seen by anyone EVER. We're not saying that there are tapes floating around on the internet of these unfortunate looking celebrities, but if there are, you should probably invest in some eye bleach, stat.
