One of the most recent scandals grabbed the headlines on October 5 after the publication of previously undisclosed allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein for sexually harassing a number of women for nearly three decades. His victims include actresses Ashley Judd (in 1996) and Rose McGowan (in 1997), Italian model Ambra Battilana (in 2015) and several other Miramax and Weinstein Company female employees. Hollywood stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie have recently added themselves on the list. While the Hollywood producer's representative refutes all claims of non-consensual sex, his wife Georgina Chapman, who married him in 2007 and has two children with him, has chosen to leave Mr. Weinstein.

Marilyn Monroe and John F. Kennedy
The possible affair between US President and iconic sex symbol have kept tongues wagging for half a century. Rumors reached a peak after Monroe's passionate "Happy Birthday" performance for JFK. She was first introduced to Kennedy in 1954, and were seen together several times afterwards. Multiple historians, including biographer Donald Spoto, who wrote a biography book about the movie star in 1993, claim the two most likely had a sexual encounter during a party at Bing Crosby's home in Palm Springs, CA, in 1962. Anyway, this relationship wrapped in lots of mysteries will always remain one of the biggest sex scandals of that era.
