Former Disney teen star Jordan Pruitt has gone public with shocking allegations of grooming and sexual abuse.

In a lengthy Facebook post, Pruitt, now 27, alleges that she suffered at the hands of an older man in the entertainment industry when she was just a teenager.

Pruitt, who rose to fame in 2006 as a Disney Channel star, claimed a man began grooming her when she was just 15.

According to Pruitt, it started when the man began withholding food from her so she lost weight and then complimenting her appearance.

“At fifteen this person had brainwashed me into thinking that the things that were happening were ‘natural’ and ‘okay,’” Pruitt wrote.

“For the record, while all of this was happening to me, he was engaged to be married. While I will spare you any of the mind-piercing details, I can honestly and unfortunately say that this man sexually abused me for almost two years of my life. I am a victim of child molestation because of him.”

Pruitt said she eventually told another woman who alerted her parents and led to the police being called.

But Pruitt said she denied everything because she was scared, resulting in no charges being filed against the man.

From there Pruitt claimed things became worse, with Pruitt alleging the man “brainwashed” her into thinking she needed to get away from her parents.

“The months following were the most painful I’ve ever experienced. This person had brainwashed me against my parents and even made me believe that I needed to get emancipated from them at some point because they were too controlling,” Pruitt said.

“He made me believe that they were just in it for my ‘Disney Money’. (This one makes me laugh now).

“He made it almost impossible for me to cut ties with him. He made it so difficult that I almost lost my record deal entirely.”

Eventually, Pruitt said she was able to get away from the man with the help of a manager and “started to rebuild myself.” She said she decided to tell her story now because “secrets make you sick.”

“He can no longer take my everyday happiness away,” Pruitt wrote. “At this moment in time, I couldn’t be happier that I am able to share this with you. Share this with my fans that unfortunately might have similar experiences.”

Pruitt rose to fame signing on the soundtrack of popular Disney Channel original movies like “Read It and Weep” and “Jump In!”

The teen also toured alongside The Cheetah Girls in 2006 and in 2012 appeared as a contestant on “The Voice” in the US.

Pruitt now works as a songwriter in Nashville and is married to a former tour mate.

Amy Winehouse’s ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil stuns ‘Good Morning Britain’ audience with shocking appearance

Amy Winehouse’s ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil’s appearance shocked “Good Morning Britain” viewers today as he slammed her dad’s plans for a hologram tour.

Amy Winehouse’s ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil’s appearance shocked “Good Morning Britain” viewers Tuesday as he slammed her dad’s plans for a hologram tour.

The 36-year-old was married to the late singer from 2007 to 2009 with the pair having a notoriously turbulent relationship.

Appearing on Tuesday’s show, Blake shared his unhappiness at Mitch Winehouse’s plans to stage a hologram tour for his daughter’s fans.

Blake said: “The way I feel about the actual hologram itself it’s no different to watching a video clip or listening to her music.

“I object to every sort of opportunity that’s been made, it seems since Amy passed away seven years ago there’s been three films, a hologram tour, to me I can’t see many other reasons for this tour.”

However host Piers Morgan pointed out Blake had also cashed in on his late wife’s memory by selling his story to the press.

Blake said it wasn’t “life-changing money” and added: “To call it cashing in is a bit misleading, I would have done it without any money but the reason I ended up taking money was I had been in a situation where I found it really hard to get a job and couldn’t really earn money any other way.”

In response to his comments, Amy’s family released a statement that read:  “All the family’s proceeds from the hologram tour will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation which is helping 1000s of young people around the UK and abroad through its drugs and alcohol education, music programmes, women’s recovery house and much more.

“Though there has been a positive reaction from her fans, not everyone has to welcome the hologram. But ultimately Amy believed passionately in helping those in need and that is a vital part of her legacy we want to secure.”

Later on the show Blake also tried to defend claims he was the one who got Amy — who died at 27 — into hard drugs during their relationship.

He said: “The drug thing has been attributed to me for years, the fact me and Amy only used drugs together six months of our marriage.

“I’m not willing to be the only person to take responsibility.

“I feel like I’m the only one who has taken responsibility since Amy died.

“People don’t realize Amy didn’t do anything Amy didn’t want to do.

“I will always carry a burden of guilt of how I should have acted.”

However, viewers were too distracted by his appearance to pay much attention to what he was saying.

One wrote on Twitter: “Kids, Blake Fielder-Civil on #GMB should be a warning to live healthily and brush your teeth.”

Another added: “Omg amy winehouse’s husband is a state #gmb” while a third tweeted: “What a mess…..The blake fellow is…get him off.”

A fourth agreed, writing: “Blake should be on #jeremykyle #gmb.”

‘Aquaman’ wins big in Chinese box office, ‘Ralph’ stays No. 1 in U.S.

In the calm before the Christmas storm at the box office, “Ralph Breaks the Internet” remained No. 1 for the third straight week, while the upcoming DC Comics superhero film “Aquaman” arrived with a cannonball-sized splash in Chinese theaters.

In the calm before the Christmas storm at the box office, “Ralph Breaks the Internet” remained No. 1 for the third straight week, while the upcoming DC Comics superhero film “Aquaman” arrived with a cannonball-sized splash in Chinese theaters.

For the second week in a row, no new wide releases opened in North American theaters, allowing Disney’s animated sequel to again lead domestic ticket sales with $16.1 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The top six films at the box office were all unchanged. Universal’s “The Grinch,” still a major draw in its fifth weekend, trailed in second with $15.2 million.

But the weekend’s biggest new arrival was in China, where Warner Bros.’ “Aquaman” debuted with $93.6 million in ticket sales. That marked a new opening-weekend record for both Warner Bros. and DC in China. Considering the checkered recent history of DC films (“Justice League,” ”Suicide Squad”), the big launch in China was a promising sign for the spinoff starring Jason Momoa.

“Adding to the success of ‘Wonder Woman,’ this is a really solid performance and portends big numbers for North America in two weeks when it opens,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Comscore. “This is a movie, along with ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ and ‘Bumblebee’ and other movies, that’s going to give December that boost that a ‘Star Wars’ movie would give us.”

“Aquaman” will expand to 40 international countries next week and arrive in North American theaters Dec. 21.

“Aquaman” wasn’t the only big-budget holiday season release receiving a lift this week. Paramount’s “Transformers” prequel “Bumblebee” played a one-night sneak preview in 326 theaters nationwide ahead of its Dec. 21 release.

Paramount declined to share ticket figures but domestic distribution chief Kyle Davies said theaters were mostly sold out. Perhaps more importantly, the film directed by Travis Knight and starring Hailee Steinfeld aided its word of mouth with largely glowing reviews — a rarity for the “Transformers” franchise.

Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns,” due out Dec. 19, also helped its cause with four Golden Globe nominations Thursday, including best picture, comedy or musical, and acting nods for Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The feel-good interracial road trip period tale “Green Book” fared even better at the Globes (five nominations, including best picture, comedy or musical, and acting nods for Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen) and had good results at the box office to show for it. In its fourth week of release, “Green Book” held with a rare 0 percent drop, earning $3.9 million in 1,181 theaters. It has grossed $20 million in total.

Yorgos Lanthimos’ comic period drama “The Favourite” continued to pick up steam. The acclaimed Fox Searchlight release, starring Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, expanded into 91 theaters over the weekend to gross $1.4 million ($15,000 per theater).

A more traditional royal drama, “Mary Queen of Scots,” also opened strongly in limited release. The Focus Features title, starring Saoirse Ronan as Mary Stuart and Margot Robbie as Elizabeth I, debuted in four theaters with a robust $50,045 per-theater average. Lis Bunnell, president of distribution for Focus, said the film’s modern spin “made it resonate with audiences in a powerful way paralleling so much of what is still going on today for women.”

Also opening in limited release were “Ben Is Back,” the family addiction drama with Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges (a $20,243 per-theater average in four theaters), and the caustic pop music critique “Vox Lux,” with Natalie Portman (a $27,000 per-theater average in six theaters).

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s “Schindler’s List,” Universal re-released the Holocaust epic in 1,029 theaters. But it failed to turn out large crowds, grossing a modest $551,000.

Next weekend, the box office is expected to be significantly busier with the release of “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” ”Once Upon a Deadpool” and Clint Eastwood’s “The Mule” and “Mortal Engines.”

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Comscore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included.

1. “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” $16.1 million.

2. “The Grinch,” $15.2 million ($25.9 million international).

3. “Creed II,” $10.3 million ($5.2 million international).

4. “Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald,” $6.8 million ($22 million international).

5. “Bohemian Rhapsody,” $6 million ($29.2 million international).

6. “Instant Family,” $5.6 million ($1.7 million international).

7. “Green Book,” $3.9 million.

8. “Robin Hood,” $3.6 million ($7.5 million international).

9. “Possession of Hannah Grace,” $3.2 million ($4.8 million international).

10. “Widows,” $3.1 million ($4.5 million international).

Kid Rock is getting into the holiday spirit.

Inspired by Tyler Perry’s good deed, the 47-year-old “Only God Knows Why” singer paid $81,000 to clear off the balances of 350 layaway accounts at a Walmart store in Nashville, Tennessee, WBIR reports. On Friday after the “Nobody’s Fool” director dropped over $430,000 to pay off layaway items in Atlanta stores, Rock took to Twitter to share that he also wanted to pay it forward, and do the same.

“@tylerperry Great idea! I followed your lead and paid off the layaway at my local Walmart in Nashville,” the rock star tweeted. “Merry Christmas and God Bless You!”

According to the Nashville store’s manager, Tom Meyer, the musician called the store on Friday morning, explaining that he wanted to spread some holiday cheer. Rock’s manager later came in and made the generous payment.

Perry started the trend on Thursday, when he shared the exciting news with the shoppers at two Walmart locations in Georgia.

“I have paid for all of your layaways for Christmas. So Merry Christmas to everybody,” he said in a video he posted on Twitter. “You got to go into the Walmart, get your layaway and pay a penny, one penny, and you get your layaway. I know it’s hard times and a lot of people are struggling. I’m just really, really grateful to be able to be in a position to do this. So, God bless you. Go get your stuff.”

Jenna Bush Hager hosts heartfelt tribute to her late grandfather George H.W. Bush

NBC News’ Jenna Bush Hager hosted an hour-long special that acted as a tribute to her late grandfather, former president George H.W. Bush, who died earlier this month at 94.

Notable Quotables as Americans say goodbye to Bush 41

Highlights from another busy week across the nation.

NBC News’ Jenna Bush Hager hosted an hour-long special that acted as a tribute to her late grandfather, former president George H.W. Bush, who died earlier this month at 94.

Bush, the 41st president of the United States, was memorialized last week, and his granddaughter capped off the coverage with the Dateline NBC special in his honor. Currently available to view online, the tribute, titled “Remembering George H.W. Bush: A Love Letter to Gampy,” aired Saturday and focused entirely on both the professional and personal life of the departed commander-in-chief.

“Tonight a deeply personal look at George H.W. Bush, one only our family can show you,” the special began, narrated by Jenna.

A choked-up Bush Hager continued: “It seemed like my grandfather packed six lifetimes into one. He was a fighter pilot, congressman, ambassador, director of the CIA, vice president and president. In the rough and tumble world of politics, he tried to work across party lines. Someone even called him the presidency’s last gentleman. But to me, he was Gampy. The one who cried as easily as I do, wrote prolific love letters, shaved his head to support a child with cancer, once drank martinis in his hospital bed and jumped out of planes again, and again, and again. Tonight, the man I’ll miss.”

The special ran through a slew of home movies, private interviews with the late president and conversations about his legacy with former President George W. Bush, Laura Bush, the late Barbara Bush, former President Bill Clinton, and many more who knew the former personally.

Troubled “Mighty Ducks” actor Shaun Weiss was arrested in November for allegedly shoplifting over $200 worth of merchandise from a Los Angeles Rite Aid, TMZ reported Sunday.

Weiss, 40, best known for playing goaltender Goldberg in the Disney franchise, is said to be facing a petty theft charge, as well as a probation violation, police sources told the gossip site.

The alleged incident comes months after the former child star entered rehab, following an arrest for public intoxication in August.

“At this time, in an effort to break free from the self destructive patterns of behavior and drug abuse that have landed me at rock bottom, (to be real… BELOW rock bottom. Even rock bottom is like ‘holy s–t, how’d you get all the way down there?’),” Weiss posted on Facebook at the time.

“I have checked in to a well reguarded, long term rehabilitation center. I have surrendered to the reality that without immediate treatment my life is in eminant danger,” he continued.

Weiss was previously arrested on drug charges in 2017, days after being released from jail for a separate crime.

A rep for Weiss did not immediately return our request for comment.

‘Game of Thrones’ The Mountain star Hafthor Bjornsson talks finale, spinoffs and being World’s Strongest Man

As fans far and wide prepare for the final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the series’ literal biggest star, Hafthor Bjornsson, opened up about his role in the final season, being the world’s strongest man and a new strength challenge presented to him by fans.

‘Game of Thrones’ ‘The Mountain’ named World’s Strongest Man

‘Game of Thrones’ actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who portrays ‘The Mountain,’ won the 2018 World’s Strongest Man competition in the Philippines. He is is the first to win the World’s Strongest Man, Europe’s Strongest Man and the Arnold Strongman Classic competitions in the same calendar year.

As fans far and wide prepare for the final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the series’ literal biggest star, Hafthor Bjornsson, opened up about his role in the final season, being the world’s strongest man and a new strength challenge presented to him by fans.

Bjornsson, known as the physically imposing Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane on “Game of Thrones,” rose to fame after being cast in Season 4. An avid fan of the show himself, Bjornsson spoke with Fox News in a recent phone interview where he teased what little he could about the finale.

“I can tell you this,” he told Fox. “I myself am super-excited to see the season. I’ve never been this excited before. I’m a fan myself and this was the hardest season that I have done ever for ‘Game of Thrones.’ It was the most difficult. Like, physically and mentally for me.”

Unfortunately, the 30-year-old strongman couldn’t go into more detail for fear of spoiling the show. However, hearing that this was the most physically taxing on a man that spends his life breaking physical records can lead fans to some logical conclusions.

As previously reported, Season 8 has teased a major battle, unlike anything the already-mammoth show has presented on screen before. While Bjornsson couldn’t confirm The Mountain’s involvement in that conflict, it’s hard to imagine one of the world’s most ruthless fighters would be sidelined.

In addition, fans have been clamoring for what’s become known as the “Clegane Bowl” for a while now, referencing the bad blood between The Mountain and his on-screen brother Sandor Clegane leading to a climactic throw down.

Despite his physically imposing build, Bjornsson is known to be an endlessly kind and positive individual. However, he plays a particularly mean man on the popular show. Now that the series is coming to a close, he told Fox he’d be open to playing a good guy in the future.

“I’ll definitely try anything, at least once. I did enjoy my time on ‘Game of Thrones’ filming as Gregor Clegane, the Mountain. So, I could definitely see myself being the bad guy again, you know? I had a good time. I enjoyed it. Each time I was on set,” he explained. “I could definitely see myself being the bad guy again, but I’ll definitely try being the good guy again if the opportunity comes.”

As for whether or not he’ll hang up his giant sword in the world of Westeros after the conclusion of “Thrones” in 2019, the actor said he wasn’t so sure. With HBO developing prequel and spinoff projects, Bjornsson isn’t ruling out the possibility of playing The Mountain outside the flagship series.

“Oh yeah, for sure. I’d discuss anything. I’m always open to ideas and if it sounds good then, you know.” he said. “Yeah, I’m a very open guy and I’d do anything as long as it fits into my schedule. Yeah. That’s definitely something I’d do.”

However, fitting things into his schedule is tricky. In addition to playing one of the most interesting characters on TV, Bjornsson won the title of 2018’s World’s Strongest Man and continues to focus his time and attention on keeping that accolade for another year. While he enjoys what acting has done for his life, he’s not ready to talk about retiring from professional strength competitions until at least 2020 – maybe beyond.

“It’s not something that a regular person gets to do, you know?” he said. “It’s definitely something that I enjoy a lot.”

In fact, Bjornsson plans to dominate another area of the professional strength competition world and break new records in the coming year.

“I’ve won all the titles that I can win in the Strongman sport. But I still don’t feel satisfied yet. I want to win the title again. And that’s what my goal is now. I want to compete at least one more year, win the title once again and we’ll see,” he explained. “I’m actually competing in Iceland on the 15th of December, I’m trying out a powerlifting competition for the first time in a long time. That’s kind of a new challenge for myself because I compete in Strongman and powerlifting is a different sport. That’s definitely a challenge for me. People have been talking a lot on social media and on podcasts in the strongman and powerlifting world. People have been talking about me having the chance to break the all-time world record in powerlifting. That would be the first time in history that someone would be the best in Strongman and go into powerlifting and be the best in that sport in the same year. No one has ever done that, so that would be a huge accomplishment or success for myself in my career.”

To help keep him sharp while he trains to achieve these goals, Bjornsson took on a different kind of strength challenge than he’s used to. The star, who previously lent his strength and likeness to products like SodaStream partnered with Krazy Glue, which claims that it can hold up to 1,000 lbs. The man that’s previously pulled airplanes and thrown washing machines, let fans on social media decide what he’d lift to test his might against the glue. In New York City, Bjornsson lifted a 450 lbs ice sculpture in the shape of, of course, a mountain. He then lifted a bench with three fans totaling 638 lbs and 750 lbs of canned food that was then donated to City Harvest after the event.

Things concluded with Krazy Glue holding up Bjornsson himself, proving the company’s assertion that it can indeed hold up against the World’s Strongest Man.

“I”ve been in strength competitions for ten years and I’ve done all kinds of different strength movements in my life. When it comes to lifting things, that’s where I feel most comfortable,” he said.

‘SNL’ sketch asks what would happen if Donald Trump was black

“Saturday Night Live” took a jab at the Trump administration as well as the FBI in a sketch from its Dec. 8 episode that simply posited the question: What if Donald Trump was black?

“Saturday Night Live” took a jab at the Trump administration as well as the FBI in a sketch from its Dec. 8 episode that simply posited the question: What if Donald Trump was black?

The sketch plays out like a commercial for a TV show called “Them Trumps” done in the style of Fox’s “Empire,” a high-class family drama with a predominantly black cast. In the sketch, an advisor warns the president that the prosecution is closing in. That’s when Kenan Thompson turns in his chair, adorned in a Trump wig and reveals himself as Darius Trump.

It then introduces the key cast members including First Lady Malika, Darius Junior and L’evanka.

“Sir they know everything, they know about Russia, they know you used campaign money to cover up an affair with Magic City stripper Cinnamon Mercedes and they now about they pyramid scheme you’ve been running through your company, Darius Trump hams,” the advisor says. “This might be the end.”

Darius Junior explains that the media has been out for him since the beginning, and Malika agrees noting that no one thought he’d get this far to begin with. That’s when the president begins to explain that he’s too powerful to be arrested, even if he is black.

In the middle of his rant, two FBI agents come in to arrest him.

“Yep, that sounds about right,” an unsurprised Darius Trump says.

The sketch ends with a fake preview clip from next week’s episode in which Darius Trump returns to the Oval Office and begins a speech about how a sitting president cannot be charged, to which he is quickly informed that he’s being impeached.

“Yeah, I was waiting on that,” he says, just as surprised as the first time.

Nick Cannon calls out Sarah Silverman, Chelsea Handler, Amy Schumer for old homophobic tweets

Following the controversy that led to comedian Kevin Hart stepping down as the host of the Oscars, his friend Nick Cannon, made a move on social media to point out the hypocrisy behind his critics.

Following the controversy that led to comedian Kevin Hart stepping down as the host of the Oscars, his friend Nick Cannon, made a move on social media to point out the hypocrisy behind his critics.

As previously reported, Hart stepped down as host of the show after critics surfaced homophobic tweets from 2010 and 2011. The star released a video explaining that he’d addressed the issues and didn’t feel the need to apologize for them again, despite what the Academy was asking.

On Friday, the 38-year-old  “Wild ‘N Out” host took to Twitter where he posted tweets from comedians Amy Schumer, Chelsea Handler and Sarah Silverman that he deemed to also be homophobic and asked where the backlash was for them.

“Interesting,” he wrote over an old tweet of Handler’s, “I wonder if there was any backlash here.”

The 2010 tweet in question read: “This is what a f– bird likes like when he flexes.” The image was no longer available.

“And I f—ing love Wreck it Ralph!!!” he wrote over an old tweet of Silverman’s.

That tweet from 2010 read: “I dont mean this in a hateful way but the new bachelorette’s a f—–.”

Cannon concluded his point with a tweet from Schumer saying, “I’m just saying… should we keep going???”

The original 2012 tweet from Schumer read: “Enjoy skyfall f–s. I’m bout to get knee deep in Helen Hunt #thesessions.”

While reactions from fans on social media were mixed, one user challenged Cannon to do an audit of his own tweets, to which the star replied, “Nope!!”

“You know I’ve been saying f—ed up s— since twitter started! I don’t play that politically correct bulls—! F— politics!! Only Truth.”

As People notes, Silverman recently addressed her old jokes in two interviews prior to Cannon’s social media sleuthing, telling The Guardian that she cringes at her old material. She explained to Variety that she feels it’s important to cop to old things like that in order to prove you’ve grown.

“I feel like unless you can admit to those things, you can’t be changed by them and you can’t even forgive yourself for them” she said.

Prior to Hart stepping down as the show’s host, Cannon posted a showing of support on Instagram.

Meghan Markle’s dad claims he hand-delivered a letter to her mom asking why he was shut out

Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas, is once again trying to publicly reconnect with his daughter.

The pregnant Duchess of Sussex has been on the outs with her dad for quite some time now, but the 74-year-old retired TV lighting director is done with being ignored, and has even asked his ex-wife, Doria Ragland, why Meghan is putting up “a wall of silence.”

“I have been frozen out and I can’t stay silent,” Thomas told the Mail on Sunday in an interview published on Saturday. “I have made dozens of attempts to reach my daughter via text and letters, but she and Harry have put up a wall of silence.”

Meghan Markle’s Father Thomas Speaks Out About Her Pregnancy For the First Time

“Everyone says, ‘Why don’t I just shut the f**k up? That Meghan can’t speak to me because I’ll give away secrets.’ But that’s bulls**t. I’ve been accused of every terrible thing you can think of,” he continued, adding that he’s sent several texts. “Her number hasn’t changed and they haven’t bounced back.”

Thomas, who says he hasn’t spoken with Meghan since after her wedding, was involved in a staged paparazzi photo scandal prior to his daughter’s nuptials. He then gave several negative and public paid interviews in which he bashed the royal family and Prince Harry. He later vowed to never disrespect his daughter and her husband by making any more negative remarks.

Now that the holidays are upon us, Thomas has even reached out to Meghan’s mother, asking for her help.

Meghan Markle Is Getting a Musical About Her Life

“I’ve pleaded with her to pick up the phone. I wrote her a two-page letter and sent it by certified mail via her representative in Los Angeles. I asked her why she was believing the lies,” Thomas explained. “I even hand-delivered a letter to Doria asking her why our daughter won’t speak to me.”

“If she would just speak to me, things could be different,” he continued. “I love Meghan very much. I want her and Harry to have a beautiful, healthy baby and a great life. But I want them to stop believing the lies.”

This new interview is the first one since October, when Thomas spoke about his daughter’s pregnancy for the first time.

At the time, he explained how he didn’t want “anyone to feel sorry for me” about finding out about the pregnancy on the radio. “Me not getting a call is most likely a misunderstanding about my two back-to-back heart attacks and me missing the wedding,” he said at the time. “There has been so much misinformation and lies that perhaps made them mistrust me.”
