Rowland reportedly met the women through acting classes that he offers in Atlanta, Houston and Los Angeles. Actresses pay $400 a night to attend his classes.

Rowland, who is married and has a daughter, allegedly urged the women to try out for a role as a stripper named Keisha in a spin-off for the TV series "Power."

Rowland allegedly told the women to record themselves partially nude and send the audition tapes to him.

However, "Power" casting director Rori Bergman told FOX 5 I-Team there was no role for a stripper named Keisha in the TV spin-off and she had no working relationship with Rowland.

Bergman told the I-Team the auditions were "reprehensible" and that "I want this guy to never be able to do this to anyone else again."

The women said Rowland preyed on them and used the "God-fearing man" angle to reel them in.

One woman said: "He reels you in. He was God-fearing, and he loved and adored her (his wife). We wouldn't expect anything like that from him. It was easy to trust (him)."

Rowland has not responded to requests from the I-Team for a comment.

Andrew Cuomo spoke out amid allegations of sexual harassment made by several women.

The embattled New York governor suffered a spectacular fall from grace as a result of the allegations.

Speaking at a press conference in Albany, NY on Wednesday, Cuomo apologized for his behavior toward the women and denied he ever touched anyone "inappropriately.

"I never touched anyone inappropriately. I never touched anyone inappropriately. I never knew at the time that I was making anyone feel uncomfortable. I never knew at the time I was making anyone feel uncomfortable," he said.

Choking back tears, Cuomo, 63, said, "Kissing people is my customary way of greeting."

Cuomo rejected calls to resign as governor, even as a third woman came forward with allegations of sexual harassment.

The woman, a former aide to ex-President Barack Obama, said Cuomo touched her inappropriately and kissed her at a party in 2019.

Unlike his other accusers, there are photos of Cuomo touching the woman and attempting to kiss her.

Cuomo commented about the allegations toward the end of his press conference covering Covid-19 numbers in the state.

"I want New Yorkers to hear from me directly on this. First, I fully support a woman's right to come forward," he said. "And I think it should be encouraged in every way. I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable. It was unintentional and I truly and deeply apologize for it. I feel awful about it, and frankly, I am embarrassed by it, and that's not easy to say but that's the truth."

He continued, "I never ever meant to offend anyone or hurt anyone or cause anyone any pain. That is the last thing I would ever want to do."

The allegations of sexual harassment come as the feds launched investigations into Cuomo's handling of Covid-19 patients admitted to nursing homes in the state.

Thousands of elderly residents were infected and died.

What Corona? A horny nurse risked everything to have noisy sex with a Covid-19 patient in a hospital bathroom, according to the NY Post.

With a 99.9% survival rate for Covid-19, the nurse apparently wasn't concerned about the health risks.

News of the incident at a Jakarta hospital went viral Friday, Dec. 25, after the patient bragged on Twitter about his sexual tryst with a male nurse.

"It is true that there has been a suspected incident of a same-sex relationship between a health worker and a COVID-19 patient at the Wisma Atlet Emergency Hospital," said Asep Gunawan of the National Nurses Association.

The NY Post reports that the patient tweeted a photo of the nurse's PPE on the hospital room floor as the two went at it.

The hospital administration was understandably humiliated. The nurse was suspended and there may be criminal charges.

"This case has been transferred to the Central Jakarta Police. We have secured the health worker to become a witness and asked for further information," said Lt. Col. Arh Herwin of the Regional Military Command.

Nurse and patient were tested for Covid-19. The patient is still positive and the nurse is negative.

If convicted, both men face up to 10 years in prison.

Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor was arrested in Corsica for attempted sexual assault and indecent exposure.

The 32-year-old UFC star was detained on Saturday, just one day after he tweeted that USADA officials had drug tested him.

The alleged incident occurred in a bar on Sept. 10. "Following a complaint filed on September 10 denouncing acts that could be described as attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition, Mr. Conor Anthony Mac Gregor was the subject of a hearing by the gendarmerie services," the prosecutor wrote in a statement sent to AFP.

A rep for McGregor vigorously denied any allegations of misconduct in Corsica where the MMA star was on vacation with his family.

McGregor had been tweeting photos of himself while on his yacht in the Mediterranean Sea.

When Odell Beckham Jr. spotted a man in uniform bend over during LSU's post-game celebrations at the College football championship, he couldn't help himself.

The Cleveland Browns wide receiver slapped the male cop on his butt, resulting in an arrest warrant for simple sexual battery.

Police say the gender of the victim should not matter when determining if sexual battery has occurred.

The incident took place in the locker room after LSU won the National Championship at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in Louisiana on Monday night.

Cell phone video shows Beckham staring intently at the officer's buttocks before delivering the butt slap.

The New Orleans Police Department issued the arrest warrant against the star receiver for inappropriately touching the heterosexual officer.

Beckham's criminal charge comes a month after Thomas Galloway, 43, was arrested for slapping a female reporter on the butt during a live TV news broadcast.

The Louisiana native also made headlines when he appeared to hand out cash to LSU players on the sideline during the game.

NCAA rules prohibit student-athletes from accepting cash or goods from sports agents or college alumni. Beckham was a standout wide receiver at LSU. His father, Odell Beckham Sr., was a running back at LSU in the 1990s.

Beckham, 27, has battled homosexual rumors since being drafted in the 1st round by the NY Giants in 2014.
