Sex offense charges for ex-pop star

– British prosecutors say they are charging former pop star Gary Glitter with eight sex offenses involving teenage girls.

The charges against Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, are related to two women who were ages 12 and 14 at the time of the alleged offenses between 1977 and 1980.

The 70-year-old was arrested in October 2012 – the first in a series of arrests under the Operation Yewtree national investigation that was launched in the wake of a child abuse scandal surrounding late BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile.

Glitter is best known for the hit “Rock & Roll (Part 2),” but he fell into disgrace after being convicted on child abuse charges in Vietnam.

He is due to appear in court in London on June 19.

Abuse suit against TV exec withdrawn

A former aspiring actor and model has withdrawn his lawsuit alleging that a former TV executive sexually abused him during trips to Hawaii in 1999.

Attorneys for Michael Egan III filed papers Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Honolulu, voluntarily dismissing the case against David Neuman.

Neuman, “X-Men” director Bryan Singer, producer Gary Goddard and former television executive Garth Ancier were sued by Egan in April under a Hawaii law that suspended the statute of limitations in civil sex abuse cases.
