James Deen, adult film’s former golden boy, is continuing to be crushed under the weight of sexual assault allegations by his former scene partners, girlfriends and other adult industry professionals. Yesterday, we detailed the accounts of Amber Rayne, Kora Peters and Joanna Angel. Today, another woman has come forward to add to the accusations against the man that The Daily Beast has dubbed The Bill Cosby of porn.
Vocativ spoke with Lily LaBeau, a performer who’s done several scenes with Deen. Like Amber Rayne, who needed emergency medical attention following a scene with the accused star, LaBeau says that Deen assaulted her when they were both in a scheduled scene together, as well as during a shoot in which he was not supposed to participate.
Here’s what Labeau told Vocativ about a scene she performed with Deen in which they were supposed to be more romantic than aggressive with each other, something that fellow performer Derrick Pierce confirms:
“The first thing he does is he walks over, I’m tied up, and he spits in my eye. It just went from zero to sixty, just degrading,” she said. “To just start a scene by spitting in someone’s eye, especially for a more vanilla company, he knows they can’t use that.” Pierce confirmed that this happened and that they had to cut it from the final product. “I just remember with that scene having to cut, cut, cut,” said LaBeau. “‘No can’t do that, no can’t do that.’ It was getting ridiculous.”
