Life Actor James Franco charged with sexual abuse By weekster Posted on October 5, 2019 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Two years after five women accused James Franco (41) of a sexually unacceptable behavior while they were his students, two of them actually sue the actor. According to the women, Franco had sexually abused his power as a teacher at the time. Rolling Stone reports this. Franco’s two female students at his Studio 4 acting school, Sarah Tither-Kaplan and Toni Gaal, sue not only the actor but also his business partner Vince Jolivette. He would have been just as guilty of the abuse. The women filed the case on Thursday at the Supreme Court in Los Angeles. Franco is said to have forced the alleged victims to follow a ‘master class’ in sex scenes. He would have filmed auditions that remained in his possession. The students would have had to sign a statement stating that they waived all their rights regarding the recordings. They now demand destruction of the made material.
