MORE THAN TWO DOZEN WOMEN ACCUSE RON JEREMY OF SEXUAL ASSAULT: REPORT
August 6, 2020
More than two dozen women have come forward with allegations of sexual assault and rape against porn star Ron Jeremy, according to a new report.
The wave of accusers contacted prosecutors in Los Angeles shortly after the once-revered king of smut was charged with raping and sexually assaulting four women, the Los Angeles Times said.
The accusations from 25 women across the nation ranged from “misdemeanor sexual battery to rape” — with the LA County Sheriff’s Department receiving 30 allegations of forcible rape and groping in incidents that took place in LA County since 2000.
None of the claims the Sheriff’s Department is handling have been presented yet to prosecutors and it’s not clear how many of those claims overlap with the 25 new alleged victims.
Six women contacted the LA Times with their stories, claiming the disgraced 67-year-old adult film star forced himself on them — with some saying they kept silent about the alleged abuse because of his powerful status in the industry.
“You have everyday citizens who are already excusing and validating his sexual assaults because we work in an industry where we are ‘whores,’” porn star Elle Hell told the publication.
She claims Jeremy attacked her in a limousine in Chicago in 2014, forcing oral sex on her and trying to rape her as she wept and repeatedly said “no.”
“He takes his [penis] out, and I remember this vividly, I’m crying,” she said.
Jeremy allegedly pressed his penis against her so hard, he left an abrasion on her genitals. But he angrily gave up, leaving her a note inside the club they were just at.
“You would cry, I hope … if I ever leave,” he wrote in the signed note, which Elle tweeted a picture of in 2016.
Lianne Young, who went by the porn name Billie Britt, said Jeremy forced himself inside her during a porn industry Halloween party in 2000 — and that there were at least three other people from the industry in the room.
She said she fought Jeremy off and was dismissed by colleagues when she recalled the harrowing ordeal.
“People were just like, ‘That’s Ron,'” said Young.
Another woman, who didn’t want to be identified, also claimed Jeremy raped her in an outside area at a restaurant at brothel owner Dennis Hof’s Bunny Ranch in Nevada.
“He bends me over the railing at the restaurant, lifts up my dress and does his thing,” she recalled. “I’m in shock. I don’t really know how to process what’s going on because it’s such a public area. What do you do?”
Alana Evans, who’s done scenes with Jeremy, claimed women have long complained of the porn star running his hands up their skirts and trying to digitally penetrate them without their consent.
“He’s done that to me,” she said. “When enough women describe something that you have felt, then you know, OK, it’s absolutely real.”
Sabrina Alvarada, aka Marcela Latinbabe, accused Jeremy of grabbing her breasts and putting them in his mouth at the Exxxotica Expo in New Jersey in 2015, and former adult film actress Colleen Pinto said she also had her breasts grabbed by Jeremy in 2005.
“Any of us that were ever dancers or in the porn industry, we all have a Ron story,” Pinto told the LA Times. “You don’t ever meet Ron without him doing something to you.”
Jeremy, whose real name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, remains jailed on $6.6 million bail after pleading not guilty in June to charges he raped three women and sexually assaulted a fourth.
His lawyer, Stuart Goldfarb, told the LA Times that he wasn’t aware of the new allegations.
“It’s too early for me to even take it to him and discuss it,” Goldfarb said. “There’s so many other things that we’re working on right now. … I know as much about them as you said to me.”
Jeremy denied the allegations in 2017, following a report in Rolling Stone.
“I have never and would never rape anyone. All serious allegations have been investigated by police and dismissed by judges,” he said at the time.
