Michael Douglas Denies Masturbation Allegations
Michael Douglas was recently alleged to have masturbated in front of a female employee and later blackballed her from Hollywood.
The star told Deadline that The Hollywood Reporter is set to publish a story chronicling multiple allegations over a span of 32 years: “I don’t know where to begin. This is a complete lie, fabrication, no truth to it whatsoever,” he said.
“I felt the need to get ahead of this,” he said of the apparent THR story, which hasn’t seem to run yet. “It pertains to me but I’m also getting a sense of how it reflects in our culture, and what is going on today.”
“As far as blackballing her, that was completely untrue,” he said. “She was a lady who was involved in development at my company, and we just didn’t have a good development record in the time she was there, so I just moved on. I never blackballed her. If people from the industry called me to ask about her, I would have been honest, but I never blackballed her.”
