Celebrities dating younger women
Created by Mikki Kendall and Jamie Golden-Nesbitt, many women who grew up in Chicago shared their stories of seeing R.
Kelly hanging around junior high schools (and, of course, the young girls that attend them).
Then there’s the recent and now-infamous courtship: the relationship between LOST actor Doug Hutchinson and aspiring singer and model Courtney Stodden, which arguably helped both of their careers, despite how skeeved out we all were by it.
Stodden, who was 16 when she married the 50-year-old Hutchison, saw her inappropriate photo shoots regularly make headlines, and though Hutchison's film career isn't quite as illustrious as it was prior to his marriage, he still scored a starring role in a reality show, Vh1's Couples Therapy.
There is much knowledge of this predatory behavior, but little consequence.
The young women who enter into relationships with male celebrities face a different kind of scrutiny, though.
Just two days following his passing, The Daily Mail published a story about how Walker's girlfriend, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, is coping with his loss.
Power, money, and fame, according to the dominant narrative, make it possible for men to sleep with any woman they want, but what happens when the women they want are still in high school? The report from The Daily Mail (an often unreliable source) stems from a 2009 article in Star (an even more unreliable source) that claimed Walker and Pilchard-Gosnell had gotten engaged after three years of dating.(A rep for Paul Walker denied that the engagement rumors were true, but did not deny Walker was dating Pilchard-Gosnell, who was 19 at the time.) Though the rumors might be false, they do bring up an issue that is all too ignored in Hollywood: Male celebrities whose illicit, and potentially illegal, relationships with underage girls are ignored, and often celebrated.The theories and tactics of pick-up artists have come a long way in the past 15 years, so we'll be laying out some of the best for your review.At the very least you'll eliminate some glaring mistakes you've been repeating, but hopefully you'll develope and refine your skills in the area by considering and evaluating the advice from these sources.
