Rovier Carrington Brad Grey

The great-grandson of Three Stooges star Moe Howard filed a $100 million lawsuit against late Paramount Chief Brad Grey, pictured right, and the former president of MTV.

Rovier Carrington, pictured left, accused Viacom of covering up the rape scandal involving Grey. In the complaint, Grey is accused of sexually assaulting Carrington on separate occasions.

Carrington claims Grey, who died of cancer in 2017, assaulted him in December 2010 at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills.

Court documents obtained by The Hollywood Reporter details incidents of coercion, violence and sexual misconduct by Grey.

"Grey indicated to Carrington that if he did not have sex with him, he would destroy any chance plaintiff had of building a career in the entertainment industry," the lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court states.

"Grey demanded Carrington drink alcohol to make it easier, at which point he proceeded to pour the spirit down Carrington's throat, ripped off his clothes, and proceeded to anally rape him, without a condom."

After the assault, Carrington said Grey threatened him and tried to trick him into signing a nondisclosure agreement.

According to the NY Daily News, Carrington claims that in May and June of 2011, Viacom's human resources department contacted him "several times." He was asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement and told he would receive "an envelope filled with money."

He said he refused to sign and that an alleged deal he had to produce his reality TV series "The Life of a Trendsetter" was canceled by Paramount Pictures.

Carrington said he was also blacklisted from the studio's parent company Viacom and he was unable to find work in Hollywood.

Carrington claims Brian Graden, former MTV president, contacted him on social media in September 2014 and offered to contact Viacom honcho Sumner Redstone on his behalf to get the blacklist lifted - but only if Carrington agreed to have sex with him.

Carrington says Graden told him the offer was "his only option if he wanted to work in the entertainment industry" again.

Carrington is seeking damages between $15 million and $100 million, according to the Daily News.

    ? stop itttttt......dude been dead since 2017...why he ain’t say nothing BEFORE?

    These kathys ain't having it. Shit why not. #METOO

  • Blak

    Too suspect. Sounds like he had consensual sex with him and didn't get what he wanted so he waited until he died to make a claim. If he got his TV show or the envelope full of cash, there would be no lawsuit

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    This is a failed lawsuit. The accused is dead. How can a dead man talk?

  • dontgetblocked

    A dramatic gay man shaming the legacy of his grandfather.

  • NeverSurprised

    It's not a failed suit. He is suing VIACOM for complicity. It is quite easy to prove if there is an electronic (emails/texts) or paper trail to show that Viacom employees or execs attempted to protect Grey by forcing the plaintiff to sign away his legal rights in exchange for a cash payout or job offer.

  • NeverSurprised

    Some of Cosby's accusers have bern silent since the 1960s, yet THEY are believed. Why not this young man?

    Interracial marriages in the family. I think I read once that one of the three stooges was also one those white people you didn't know was black.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Now that it's his word against a dead guy, you win. Proving the wrongdoing in court is another thing.

  • RaginB

    Cuz the “suspect” is dead...there’s two sides to a story..

  • the guest

    I hope this young man wins this lawsuit. Those old white men in Hollywood are sick to use their companies and positions to rape young men as a prerequisite to work in Hollywood. Blacklisting is the most evil practice. People who participate in blacklisting are the devil's tools.

  • Logan Roberts

    His grandfather was a stooge so......

  • Miss Thang

    He’s not suing the accused. He’s suing the company.

    It would have been funny if you said the grandson of one of the Three Stooges "slapped" him with a lawsuit. Dat right dur is funnee.

  • Blue

    I said the same thing! Hahaha

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Alllllllll of em but they scared to to say something they know only white women can only profit and get sympathy for this type of stuff. Look what happened when Terry crews accused humph they dam near had him all down to da mental hospital and shid. That man had to undergo a psychiatric evaluation for bringing this lawsuit not a one white woman had to do that even when some of them are clearly lying and crazy. So all the black actors and actresses and rappers and singers ain’t saying nothing and now they will get preyed on the most because they keeping their mouths closed and legs and buttholes wide open. I first I thought they didn’t pull this on black folks because we would tell or we wouldn’t be down for this mess buuuuut now I’m starting to think they just not coming forward. It’s only a few black in Hollywood compared to whites now how you think they were able to get in?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I believe him.

  • NeverSurprised

    Just because you spend your life perpetually bent over waiting for your next anal opportunity doesn't mean every gay man does .

    This young man was wealthy BEFORE he met Grey. He invested $200,000 of his OWN MONEY into a television project. Your dumb ass doesn't even know which entities he is suing, and as usual, you lack the ability to take the time to find out. Always flapping your gums and revealing what a nasty little uninformed twerp you are.

  • hi-liter

    Grey is accused of sexually assaulting Carrington on separate occasions
    ___________________________________________________________
    You get raped 2 times by the same person and you didn't get the police involved after the second rape? AND you wait until the man is dead? Sorry, I'm not buying it. Seems like he was fuccking just to get on. Why ALL these men approaching you about having sex if that isn't what you do.

  • NeverSurprised

    Black people are so quick to mock and condemn their own.

    If Viacom KNEW of Grey's actions and blackballed this young man in the industry , then he has a right to sue. It is no different than the Weinstein Co., which knew of Harvey's behavior and fostered it. The Weinstein Co. crumbled because of that policy and was just sold off in bankruptcy.

    For those accusing him of just wanting money, according to his court filing, this young man was wealthy BEFORE he even met Grey. He invested $200,000 of his OWN MONEY into his dream tv project and spent additional money putting together a team of agents, managers, lawyers to get the project done. His claim against Viacom is that they knew of Grey's actions and those of another exec and FOSTERED that culture, and blackballed plaintiff when he refused to accede to their demandsm, resulting in the loss of lucrative deals. The complaint states, in part:

    "Viacom fosters a corporate culture of systemic deviancy, that its executives, producers, and even chairman were aware of, and in some cases, actively participated in."

    I don't know if he has a winnable case, but I do know that if the white women who accused Weinstein and his company were worthy of belief, then so is this young black man.

  • Phillybruh

    If we Believe the Cosby accusers then this young man should be taken as seriously.

  • Phillybruh

    The way I just busted out laughing at that first part...lol

  • Phillybruh

    Yeah his grandfather took pots and pans to the head for a living...I can't see how this is shaming him...lol

  • Phillybruh

    There is some validity if the courts have allowed it too move forward. Which it appears they have with this case.

  • hi-liter

    Listen, these people want to be in the entertainment business, they fucck a person or two to get on something, then all that does it spread rumors that you will do anything to "get on" in Hollywood. If they don't want to be "raped" and approached for sex then go find another occupation.

  • hi-liter

    Walking around with his boobs all out. He's flaming.

  • Quitedeliteful

    With the accused being deceased I hope this guy ca prove is case if these allegations are true. I just wonder if bringing a lawsuit after the guy is dead is the best move.

  • NeverSurprised

    Absolutely. More importantly, his claims are NO DIFFERENT from those made by Weinstein's accusers, including claims that the company knew of Harvey's actions and fostered them. These are the SAME kinds of claims being made by this young man against Viacom.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!

  • Kemi

    He’s suing Viacom supposedly for the cover up. I also, hope there’s enough to proof to win the case and vindicate himself.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Exactly!

  • NeverSurprised

    Me too.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I believe him...the story is so intricate and precise to the point where we all know its the truth. Yt men are some of the sickest sexual deviants smh...

  • abby500

    When you open with Moe from the 3 Stogies.....This is so confusing, but I understood it all.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So... you're saying people should just accept having to have sex with people they dont want to, just as being the cost of entry into the business?

  • Kita Williams

    you know ppl get raped and approached for sex in hospitals, vet clinics, police stations, payless, chick-fila, Walmart, etc. a person pursuing their dreams does not mean they WANT to be raped or are asking for it and a person having an active sex life doesn't automatically mean they are ASKING to get raped.

  • Kita Williams

    rape and sexual assault have two different definitions you know

  • Dowoop

    And we will only hear one.

  • Yui

    You know I had to read that a few times. XD

  • Dowoop

    They sure did.

  • Dowoop

    Not to mention he is dead and don't/cant care.

  • Dowoop

    3 actually.

  • Braxton P. Hartnabrig

    Don't this dude look like a fucboi? When powerfull men in Hollywood come at you in that manner for the most part you got a name for yourself as being a fucboi.

  • NeverSurprised

    The Cosby accuser at the center of the case he just lost didn't contact the police until a YEAR after the alleged event. She also made over 50 calls to Cosby during the months after she claims to have been assaulted, AND she contacted him for tickets for her parents to attend one of his shows. If she is deemed "believable", then why not this young man?

  • Marlika

    Wow that crazy. Very sad they didn’t get what they deserved.
    I used to love watching them as a kid. Me and Moe share the same birthday!! ?

  • Braxton P. Hartnabrig

    Both are a crime. Why would you put yourself to be a victim of a crime done twice by the same person. He didn't get what he expected are what was agreed on. So now he is sueing and useing sexual assault as an excuse. That's what it seems like to me.

  • Kemi

    So true

  • hi-liter

    I'm pretty sure he knows that's the culture in Hollywood and the career he is trying to pursue, so yeah.

  • hi-liter

    No sir I'm not saying that. He and all the rest know the culture of Hollywood. Some of these people need to find other careers.

  • hi-liter

    That's what it appears to be to me.

  • hi-liter

    If she is deemed "believable", then why not this young man?
    _________________________________________
    Who said she was believable? I didn't, but the jury did so that's that.

  • NeverSurprised

    "Who said she was believable? "
    ------------------
    Uh, a court of law, a jury of 12, the stations who pulled Cosby's show, including black-owned stations, every institution that has ever given him an award, every black University to which he gave millions, most of the people on this site, almost everyone in America (except me). I could go on, but the point is, if EVERY woman's story is automatically believed, why is this young man assailed?

  • NeverSurprised

    I'm guessing you haven't read the details of the claims. His charges against Viacom are far more complicated and involve more people than just Brad Grey. He is charging a corporate CULTURE that was aware of Grey's actions and the actions of other execs and dangled career opportunities in exchange for sexual favors and silence, then withdrew those offers when the victim complained.

    This young man had his own money and invested $200k in the project, so it isn't about that. It is about blackballing him in the same manner that white actresses who spurned Harvey Weinstein's advances were blackballed and had their careers ruined

  • Trace da Ace

    yeah I hope so too.....

  • datjerk

    Oh damn

  • Kemi

    ??

  • Guess Who

    He actually does favor Moe around the eye area...

  • kre

    Are you asking me to believe that a man forced him to "drink alcohol"? Additionally, he's dead. But waiting 7 year's later? He lost me at, forcing him to drink alcohol, didn't he choke? It sounds like someone scorned either because his career didn't jump off, or bad decision making skills and a money grabber. Also, waiting till someone dies, to make your complaint? in my opinion isn't fair. $15-$100 million in damages...which one is it? This just sounds fishy.

    Never heard of him so he must've did a good job & making his career fail :P

  • Michelle

    Nothing about this sounds fishy to me. He never signed the non disclosure cause he knew one day, if he was actually blackballed he could use it to his advantage. And that’s exactly what he is doing and he should. You should watch The 2 Corey’s . That movie was on Lifetime by one of the child teen heartthrobs and it’s disgustiing the way they did them boys.
