James Franco settles in abuse lawsuit
James Franco has reached a settlement with two women who accused him of sexually unacceptable behavior. American media report this on the basis of court documents. How much money is involved in the deal is not known.
The women were Franco’s students at his former acting school. They had sued the actor for sexually abusing his power as a teacher at the time. Franco is said to have forced the alleged victims to follow a ‘master class’ in sex scenes.
The case has been running for almost a year and a half. According to The Hollywood Reporter , a settlement has been negotiated in recent months. This is said to be officially submitted to the court in mid-March.
