The actress alleges Steven Seagal propositioned her while she auditioned for a role

Actress Portia de Rossi has accused actor and producer Steven Seagal of sexual harassment.

The Arrested Development actress, who is married to US talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, made the allegation in a tweet posted on Wednesday night.
She alleges that during a film audition Mr Seagal told her “how important it was to have chemistry off-screen” before unzipping his trousers.
Mr Seagal’s manager told BBC News that the actor had no comment.
The 65-year-old is best known for his action roles during the 1980s and 1990s, including Under Siege and Flight of Fury. He was given Russian citizenship by President Vladimir Putin in 2016.
Several other women have come forward to accuse Mr Seagal of inappropriate behaviour and harassment, including the Good Wife actress Julianna Margulies and model Jenny McCarthy.
He is the latest person in Hollywood to stand accused of sexual harassment or sexual assault after women began coming forward about producer Harvey Weinstein.
Harvey Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex made against him.

In the tweet, Ms de Rossi said her complaints about Mr Seagal’s behaviour were dismissed at the time by her agent.
She did not specify what movie the audition was for or in what year the incident allegedly happened.
The Australian-American actress has been married to television host Ellen DeGeneres for nine years.
Ms DeGeneres shared Ms de Rossi’s tweet with her 75 million followers on Thursday with the caption: “I am proud of my wife”.

      Well, is there any witness to this crime, any third party? Should we conclude its true just because she said it?

    Mind you I’m not supporting or accusing Seagal, but I let’s fact be established first before blames.

Emir of Kano’s singer arrested in Nigeria

Naziru Ahma sings in Hausa and is the chief musician for the Emir of Kano

A popular singer in northern Nigeria has been arrested. He was taken away by officers from his home in Kano city on Wednesday evening.

Naziru Ahmad is the latest performer to be detained by the authorities in what seems to be a crackdown on artists who are seen as critical of the state administration.

Ahmad is the chief musician in the court of the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, who has fallen out with the governor of Kano state.

This is a clip of one of his songs in the Hausa language in which he praises the emir, one of the most influential spiritual and traditional leaders in the country’s largely Muslim north.

But the governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, seems determined to quash the emir’s influence. Earlier this year he divided the land of the historic Kano emirate into five sections – leaving the emir in charge of just one part.

Kano state police spokesperson Abdullahi Haruna confirmed Ahmad’s arrest without giving details of the allegations or charges.

Several other musicians have recently either been jailed or are facing trial for allegedly defaming Mr Ganduje in their songs.

It is causing a lot of anxiety in the large entertainment industry in northern Nigeria, much of it based in Kano city, with some saying the arrests are a threat to their freedom of speech.

EPL: 4 Manchester United players who are against Mourinho revealed

Published

A clique of four Manchester United players, have fallen out of favour with manager Jose Mourinho, according to the Daily Mail.

Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Eric Bailly and Marcus Rashford are the players said to be involved.

Rashford showed his unhappiness, when he kicked a dressing room door at Turf Moor, after being sent off against Burnley last weekend.

Mourinho is under pressure at Old Trafford, after United started the season with two defeats from their opening three games, their worst start to a campaign since 1992.

The United boss still retains the support of the majority of United fans, many of whom have turned against the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, following the club’s disappointing summer in the transfer market.

What Cristiano Ronaldo Earns At Juventus (Photos)

Published

By

Cristiano Ronaldo – The former Real Madrid star is reportedly earning more than three times the amount of the second highest-paid player, Gonzalo Higuain.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the highest-paid player in Serie A and earns three times more than anyone else in Italy’s top-flight, according to a report published by Tuttosport.

The Portuguese star has been the big talking point in Italy since his €100m (£88m/$117m) move to the Bianconeri in the summer.

Juve have a perfect record after their first three games of the season, but Ronaldo is yet to score a goal for his new team and has attracted criticism for his failure to find the net thus far.

Despite his failure to score, it comes as no surprise that Ronaldo is top of the rankings when it comes to earnings, but the wage gap between the Juventus star and the rest of the league is quite astonishing.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport have revealed the wages of all Serie A players, with the 33-year-old taking home far more than any of his team-mates or rivals.

Ronaldo is earning an incredible €31 million (£28m/$36m) per season in Turin and is on a four-year deal with the reigning Serie A champions.

Not only is the five-time Ballon d’Or and Champions League winner by far the biggest earner in the league, but he earns more than three times as much as anyone else.

Gonzalo Higuain, who joined AC Milan from Juve after Ronaldo arrived in Turin, is the next best paid, raking in €9.5 million (£9m/$11m) per season.

After Higuain, it is fellow Argentine attacker and Juventus star Paulo Dybala on €7m (£6m/$8m), with Miralem Pjanic not far behind on €6.5m.

Unsurprisingly, Juventus’ wage budget is far greater than any other teams in the division.

Massimiliano Allegri’s men are currently spending €219m (£197m/$253m) per season on player salaries alone, while AC Milan are next as they hand out €140m (£126m/$162m) per year.

Roma are third, with their spending reaching €116m and €100m (£90m/$116m) respectively.

Empoli are the lowest spending team in the league with expenses of just €16m a season.
