▪ Serena Williams married Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian this week in a lavish Beauty and the Beast–themed ceremony attended by Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, and dozens of other celebrities from the worlds of sports, music, movies, and technology. During the $1 million New Orleans bash, guests were seated at tables named after each of Williams’ 23 Grand Slam titles, complete with trophy replica placeholders. The couple’s 2-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia Jr., served as a pint-size bridesmaid, while Williams, 36, danced in sparkly white Nike sneakers.
▪ Sylvester Stallone was once accused of sexual assault by a 16-year-old fan who claimed he forced her into a threesome with his bodyguard, according to a decades-old police report obtained by the Daily Mail (U.K.). The unnamed teenager made the claim to Las Vegas police in 1986, when Stallone was 40. She claimed she was having sex with the Rocky actor at the Hilton hotel when he encouraged his bodyguard, Michael De Luca, to join them. The teenager felt “very uncomfortable” with the situation, according to the report, but felt too “intimidated” to refuse. Stallone threatened to “beat her head in” if she told anyone, she said. The police report, which the cops confirmed was real, states that the teen decided not to pursue charges against the two men because she feared possible retaliation. Stallone, now 71, said through a spokeswoman that the story was “categorically false” and that at no point was he “ever contacted by authorities or anyone else regarding this matter.”
▪ Jeffrey Tambor says he’s quitting a starring role as a transgender woman in Amazon’s hit show Transparent, after a sexual harassment allegation by transgender co-star Trace Lysette. Lysette accused him of saying she looked so good he wanted to “sexually attack her,” and of rubbing his penis against her. Tambor’s former assistant Van Barnes, who is also transgender, also accused the actor of making sexually inappropriate remarks to her. In a statement, Tambor, 73, admitted to having “flaws,” but vehemently denied being a “predator”—“and the idea that someone might see me in that way is more distressing than I can express.” The “politicized atmosphere’’ on the set, Tambor said, made it impossible for him to continue in the role. ■
