American Actress, Raquel Welch Dies At 82
Raquel Welch, who paved the way as both an actress and international sex symbol has died after a brief illness on Wednesday morning at the age of 82.
Welch first rose to fame for her roles in “Fantastic Voyage” and “One Million Years B.C.” both in 1966.
She became an international sex symbol in the 1960s, widely remembered for playing a bikini-clad cavewoman in the 1966 film One Million Years B.C.
Despite her public image, however, she long expressed discomfort with the representation of her body, once saying she “was not brought up to be a sex symbol, nor is it in my nature to be one”.
Welch was named one of the “100 Sexiest Stars in Film History” in an issue of Empire magazine in 1995 … and was ranked #3 in Playboy’s “100 Sexiest Stars of the 20th Century.”
Raquel was married four times and has two kids, Tahnee and Damon Welch.
“The fact that I became one is probably the loveliest, most glamorous and fortunate misunderstanding,” she added.
She was one of the most sought-after female stars throughout the ’60s and ’70s … taking home plenty of hardware in the process, including a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her 1974 role in “The Three Musketeers.”
American Woman Files Lawsuit Accusing Mike Tyson Of Rape In Early ’90s
A woman in New York state has filed a civil suit against Mike Tyson, accusing the former boxing champion of raping her in a limousine in the early 1990s, according to court filings.
The woman, who asked the court to remain anonymous, filed her complaint in early January under a temporary New York state law allowing victims of sexual assault to seek civil damages regardless of the statute of limitations.
Tyson spent three years in jail beginning in 1992 after being found guilty of raping model Desiree Washington, who was 18 at the time.
In a short affidavit dated December 23, 2022, the plaintiff states that she met the boxer at a nightclub “in the early 1990s,” then followed him into his limousine, where he allegedly assaulted her before raping her.
“As a result of Tyson’s rape, I suffered and continue to suffer from physical, psychological and emotional injury,” she said.
She is seeking $5 million in damages.
By late Tuesday, Tyson had not issued any public statement.
Born in Brooklyn in 1966, Tyson had a turbulent childhood before becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion in the 1980s, terrifying his opponents with his fury in the ring and a phenomenal punching power.
But after his prison sentence, he could not retain his titles.
In a notorious 1996 matchup, Tyson bit off a piece of his opponent Evander Holyfield’s ear.
Gripped by depression and addiction, he continued to make headlines, notably for a one-man show in which he described his life’s many ups and downs.
He has recently launched into the cannabis industry with his own brand of marijuana products, and hosts a podcast.
