So:

  • Kiddly fiddler?
  • Corpse toucher?
  • Other? (please specify)
  • All of the above?

Distant relatives perhaps?

Saville mingled with the topmost people. Very close to Prince Andrew for a while.

Add Steven Tyler and Axl Rose to your nonce jotters

Because the age of consent in the state was 18, she claims Tyler persuaded her mother to sign over guardianship to him, making her his ward, so she could travel with the star on tour. She also claims she became pregnant with his baby, and had an abortion after coming under heavy pressure from him.

Through the lens of 2021, laid out in black and white, it all seems pretty shocking. But perhaps more shocking is that for years, this kind of behaviour wasn't at all shocking

Signing over the guardianship definitely makes it a bit creepy from whenever you are looking at it.

sign over guardianship to him

I wonder if there's a paper trail?

I seem to recall that teenage Twiggy's parents came to a similar sort of arrangement with Justin de Villeneuve, as he called himself.

Bill Wyman's still walking free.

This is a bit creepy but the varying ages of consent around the US make someone a paedophile then not a paedophile as they travel around the country.

When 49 year old John Derek met 16 year old Mary Cathleen Collins and put her in his films as Bo Derek, they moved to Germany until she was 18.

Mandy Smith was 13 when she met Wyman. I see she has called for the UK age of consent raised to 18 - not convinced that would help much with these ghastly entitled men.

Roy Harper was acquitted on two charges, subsequently another five charges were dropped, according to Wiki.

I have recorded the Sky doc to watch. Does it also discuss Jimmy Page's underage proclivities?

carterbrandon - 14 Sep 2021 15:13:16 (#16938 of 17115)

Didn't the latter raise his hat to the former?

"Tiny Tim was married three times, and had one daughter from his first marriage to the then 17-year-old Victoria Budinger – also known as "Miss Vicki" – at the age of 37."

I suppose you could argue it was worse than reviving the ukulele with that song.

Was that the cunt who sang Tiptoe Through the Tulips?
