LISTEN TO Episode #144 Hollywood Child SEX SCANDAL
Remember this podcast, back on March 13th? We do. We can never forget the ugly truth about child slavery, forced labor, trafficking… whatever you want to call it, it’s evil and must stop now. In episode #043 we heard from John Paul Rice, a long time Hollywood producer who warned us back then that this was much bigger than we thought. He even mentioned a young actress’ name as being one that has been abused through labor trafficking of children; Britney Spears. Now, months later, Britney is speaking out against the ‘conservator’ that stole her life; her father and others.
LISTEN TO Episode #043 Hollywood Insider Exposes Human Trafficking
Big Announcement from Rose McGowan on Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Confidential court records obtained by The Times reveal that the singer has urged changes to the arrangement that controls her life, and her father’s role in leading it.
In dramatic testimony last week, Britney Spears spoke out against the conservatorship that has ruled her life for more than a decade. But overnight, a judge denied her request to stop her father’s involvement. NBC national correspondent Miguel Almaguer reports for TODAY from Los Angeles.
During her testimony, Spears said, “I just want my life back. It’s been 13 years and it’s enough.”
In her closing remarks, she said: “I feel ganged up on, bullied, left out and alone. And I’m tired of feeling alone. I deserve to have the same rights as anybody does, by having a child, a family, any of those things and more so.”
Harvey Weinstein was once at the very top of Hollywood. As accusations of his sexual predation came to light, it didn’t just trigger his downfall. It ushered in a tidal wave of exposure of sexual impropriety in the film industry.
