Two Other Massage Therapists Claim Assault By Gore
Trigger warning for some description of assault
This just in via The National Enquirer, which broke the original story:
The ENQUIRER recently uncovered shocking allegations, from two other massage therapists.
The first incident allegedly took place at a Beverly Hills luxury hotel when Gore, 62, was in Hollywood to attend the Oscars in 2007.
The second reportedly occurred a year later at a hotel in Tokyo.
A Beverly Hills hotel source told The ENQUIRER:
“The therapist claimed that when they were alone, Gore shrugged off a towel and stood naked in front of her.
“He pointed at his erect penis and ordered her, ‘Take care of THIS.'”
That’s all that’s available online, and I haven’t got my hands on an Enquirer yet, but that hasn’t stopped the apologists from jumping on it already. As this story breaks further, let’s keep on media outlets to remind them how they should be reporting this story.
UPDATE: I just went in search of the full story, which The Enquirer claims is available “on newsstands now.” But their current issue has nothing about the story that I could find. Do let me know if you see anything more, and I’ll do the same.
