After Heath Ledger died, one of the entertainment shows (I'm 99% sure that it was Access Hollywood) claimed they were in possession of a tape with a lot of young stars doing drugs, including Ledger. All of the gossip sites buzzed about it for a couple of days, then all mention of it disappeared. Later there was a blind that said that actors threatened to boycott the show if it were released.

Two stories. One about JLo having a poop accident during sex with Ben Affleck after he put a finger in her ass.

And one anecdote by a taxi driver who took a then-unknown Barbra Streisand to an audition or something and she was nervous and nattering on, and after she got out he discovered that she’d peed in his cab.

Both stories are things I’d read YEARS ago, but maybe they weren’t true.

The ambassador was probably raped. Gaddafi used to have his enemies raped. That's why they stuck a bayonet up his arsehole. It's a tenuous assumption though. Men are pigs, wherever you find them.

I'd never heard about it before this thread, R25, but agree it has the feel of truth to it, especially in light of what happened to Gaddafi himself. With that said, if it did happen I don't blame the government for covering it up - for one thing, if it were widely known to the general public it would overshadow everything else about Stevens' life, which seems unfair to his memory. The man died in the service of his country - let him have whatever dignity can be afforded him in death.

Things are scrubbed from the Internet for PR reasons all the time. I've mentioned on the original thread that my second job as an assistant in the business was to map anything online related to a client and send them to a tech person who would try to trick google's algorithms to bury a story, even though the algorithms change all the time. When that fails, the next action is to hit a site with a DMCA/copyright takedown and/or threaten a poster with a lawsuit or paying them to take it down.

Sending cleaners to discredit the rumors, like you see a lot here on Datalounge is a fairly new approach. A good cleaner will never stand out. Back when Facebook first started, they were very professional and discreet, those were the days. Today you can spot them from space, as we can see with the moronic person trying to discredit gossip here on that gossip thread with the Qanon bullshit.

I remember a blind from a couple of years ago that said that a lot of material related to Melania was scrubbed in 2015, and I believe it. There must be many people around who know her backstory and she must have had a presence on the internet beyond what is still there.

R57 According to my research, the interview where Johnny Depp made those comments was originally published in German. I doubt Stern ever translated the full thing to English and excerpts of it were published in American celeb news outlets. It's probably why he made those comments about how dumb America is, he never thought they'd get across to the USA.

Translated: [quote] America is like a stupid puppy. With big teeth. It can bite and hurt you. An aggressive country. The American government and the media have insulted the French that President Chirac is an animal. I was glad when I read that French fries had been renamed from "French Fries" to "Freedom Fries". Grown men and women in positions of power, people in government, suddenly came out of themselves as idiots. I thought: You are finally showing the world what kind of idiot you are. You just have to look at our president, unbelievable. He was all about business in Iraq. To control. Money. And he's one of the worst liars I've ever seen.

Logically, why WOULDN'T you expect this interview to disappear? I'm not talking about due to content, but realistically.... WHY would a Christina Applegate interview from 1996 from a little known publication called "Bikini" be online in 2020? Maybe quotes from the interview were published in other sources in 1996. I don't know. Judging from the site I found the interview on, it must have been transcribed FROM the physical magazine by a fan online.

I can barely find any info about "Bikini" magazine online. There's hardly a trace of it left online. I doubt it's been "scrubbed," but things just don't LAST. The internet is ephemeral!!!

I don't care how many languages he can speak, that was stupid. The one rumour I heard at the time was that he was de facto Station Chief. If so, that would explain why he was there.

In the late 80s and early 90s I was a casual fan of Robert Palmer, who most remember for his song (and video) “Addicted to Love.” In 1991 or 1992, I bought an cd of his that had just come out, “Don’t Explain.” On it was a song I really loved called “Aeroplane.” I remember looking at the lyrics in the CD booklet and noticing the song was written by Palmer and someone named Mary Ambrose. The name stuck with me because I thought it was lovely.

Some years later, I read an article about Palmer where he was interviewed at his home in (I think) Switzerland. Mary Ambrose was mentioned as his girlfriend and what stuck out to me was how the writer mentioned she wasn’t skinny but voluptuous and that the couple enjoyed good food. So, now I had an image of this sensuous woman with no dieting hang ups. In my mind I saw her as having thick dark hair and wearing a clingy short dress. Around that time, Palmer’s album, Honey came out and it was a good one. The woman kissing him in the cover was identified as Mary Ambrose.

Palmer died in the early 00s. British news mentioned Mary Ambrose as his romantic partner.

A couple of years ago I noticed that Palmer’s Wikipedia page kept changing. Ambrose would be mentioned in the Death section and a British paper would be credited. Then, any reference to her would disappear, only to reappear.

Googling her and Palmer, I found that someone had posted that his REAL partner had been someone named Geraldine Edwards, a famous groupie, but this person doesn’t seem to have actually existed. I wouldn’t care so much except this person (who has posted on every site that mentions Palmer) insists that Ambrose only worked for Palmer and that she met him just befire he died. I KNOW this isn’t true because I remember reading that CD booklet in the early 90s that listed her as co-writing that song, as well as her having been in the cover of the Honey album. It just bothers and fascinates me that some nut it out there trying to erase the memory of this Mary Ambrose.

Below is an example of what this person writes and the writing style is always the same!

I feel like replying on one of those boards about the 1990 CD as proof that he did know her then, but I am too lazy.

That is midly interesting R126/R127, but realistically... who cares about the girlfriend of a dead 80s singer? It doesn't really need to be mentioned in Wikipedia if there isn't a GOOD source.

by Anonymousreply 12808/26/2020

R128 It’s not there isn’t a good source - there is, an obit from the Guardian. What intrigues me is that one person (like a D*vida on steroids) has been systematically trying to instill a false narrative.

Also, if you read all of her (I have to assume it’s a woman) posts, she says some really nasty things about this Mary Ambrose: that she stalked Palmer and that she was fucking the manager on the side and had a bunch of kids with him who were “taken away” from her. Also, less sinister but no less strange, that she is much younger than has been reported, so she couldn’t have known him in 1990, that she is from Ohio not CA, and even that she is now dead.

Again, I never would have noticed had she not claimed that Ambrose didn’t meet Palmer until around 2000. I had that 1990 CD and it listed Ambrose as a co-writer.

So my question is WHY?

Can things even really BE scrubbed from the Internet? I'm skeptical. You can remove all the obvious sources with enough money, but you can't truly remove something from the internet, no matter how rich and famous you are. Once something is out there, it's out there. The sources are like a hydra. You remove one link and two more take its place. I'm sure everything mentioned in this thread can be found somewhere, it all depends on whether or not you're willing to deep dive for it.

R128 I might be on the spectrum too! But it drives me nuts because I have such a clear memory of reading that CD booklet in 91 or 92 and seeing that lovely name, Mary Ambrose. And this psycho is going around all over the internet saying Palmer didn’t meet her until 2000! It hurts my brain! Lol

If you check all the Palmer Wikipedia updates you see a history spanning years of this person removing the reference to Ambrose as his partner and moderators adding her back in. YEARS of this! Why???!

I spent a couple minutes looking at the weird Geraldine Edwards thing. Not too indepth but I noticed this. The posters say Geraldine Edwards is now married and goes by Geraldine Flemming-Mueller.

You can find somebody by this name on Facebook. She has some long-winded posts about rock musicians (probably the same writing style but I just glanced through real quick) and something about being harassed on Wikipedia. If you look at the few photos visible, one of them she claims is her (photographed by Eric Clapton) is actually DL fave Catherine Deneuve! Other reverse searches show that more recent photos of "Geraldine" are actually of a little known actress named Karin Swenson.

I found no real evidence that anyone with that name or her husband's name even exists. There may be a real Geraldine behind this who is quite unhinged but the profile is full of even more fakery...

What's this fixation with Robert Palmer and that Mary Ambrose chick? Scrubbing only matters if said story is considered bad PR that could harm the talent's viability as a celebrity. A male star being secretly gay is the most common example as it's assumed that female audiences (who are the primary audience for the celebrity economy) want to imagine they have a chance with the objects of their obsession. So the Henry Cavill, Jake Gyllenhaal and Matthew McConaughey posts on this thread are highly probable.

Another example is the male celebrity having a romantic past that's deemed incompatible with their image. Back in the day, it used to divorce or casual sex. Now, a serial cheater or the post above about Brad Pitt's black exes (like Robin Givens and Sinita) or that he dated an underage Juliette Lewis are things that might not sit well with his female, white middle class public. There's motive for scrubbing there, but none for the Mary Ambrose story aside from an overzealous overly invested fan.

R225 That because the same person has been scrubbing Ambrose as a co-songwriter, I guess first in on Wikipedia and then other sites follow suit.

You’re right that co-writing a song doesn’t mean they were a couple but I KNOW I read an interview some years later that described Mary as being his girlfriend and voltuptuous and both of them enjoying food. (Lol I type fat, I know). THANK YOU for posting those CD booklets. I kept meaning to buy a copy on eBay just to check.

R226 For me it became a fixation because it fucked with my memory. As posted above, the original CD had Ambrose as co-writer of that song, Aeroplane, a favorite of mine. Now online, her name is missing.

Oh and R226 it’s also fascinating to me becasue its not a PR thing. This is clearly the work of one insane, Davida-like frau with an intense obsession that has lasted 10 years. If you read all the sites, not only is Ambrose scrubbed, but she replaced by a nonexistent person and variously, she is dead, had multiple kids by Palmer’s manager (gold digger/slut alert), and most frustratingly aged down so that she met Palmer AFTER the Don’t Explain album. (As in she would have been a teen when that album was written). That’s the part that really makes me nuts. I want to know WHY.

I’m pretty sure there was a story about ScarJo being seen making out with a woman (not a celebrity) somewhere semi-public that made gossip rounds in the mid to late 2000s. Last time I tried to find the gossip item a year or two ago, I couldn’t find it anywhere. Possibly scrubbed by PR team, perhaps? It seemed like such a minor thing to begin with that I’m surprised I can’t find anything about it, but Hollywood is pretty LGBT-phobic still, and worse a decade ago.

Why scrub that? She could have boosted her box office appeal by helping that gossip reach a wider audience!

Blogosphere gossips have been claiming that Gyllenhaal was ready to admit he was having trouble quitting actor Austin Nichols, whom he has known since high school. But sorry, guys, there won’t be any coming-out party. Even though Jake is now split with Kirsten Dunst and Nichols broke off his engagement to Claire Oswalt, Gyllenhaal’s rep says he and Nichols are just friends.”[/italic]

I've seen so many things get scrubbed from the internet, but I refuse to believe that someone out there doesn't have most of these things stored. From the nude video of Jennifer Lawrence getting cum on her face to large swaths of TV shows (Ellen, Chelsea Lately and The Soup come to mind), it's amazing what you can't find online any longer.

It's also amazing what news stories have been scrubbed. For example, before Nikki Blonsky got mocked for sweeping hair in a salon and Geoffrey Owens got shamed for working at Trader Joe's, the Daily Mail posted photos of Downton Abbey actor Ed Speelers working as a bricklayer just after he starred in the movie Eragon. There's an article or two still referencing it, but the photos themselves were just completely scrubbed off the internet. Can't find them anywhere. Seems this little career setback was removed by his PR team. I wonder if anyone still has the photos. They have to. How could they not?

There's a difference between something being scrubbed and a website changing their media hosting so links break. If it was scrubbed the article wouldn't still be up, would it?

R252 Why are shows like Ellen, The Soup, Chelsea Lately not being online examples of scrubbing? Huh? Shit like the Soup aired clips of OTHER shows, which I suspect prevented full episodes from being STREAMED online.

The best clip from The Soup is still online, anyway.

R129 Definitely sounds like a psycho fangirl. There are unfortunately a lot of them. I don't mean the ones who just fight about their favorites or defend them against all others. There are some truly delusional ones that have a whole fantasy life they try to create as real on the internet involving having actual relationships with the musicians or actors. They can really make being a fan miserable if they decide to set on someone who runs a fansite or facebook fan page who won't buy into their delusions, and they alsodo things like this, change wiki pages. It's amazing how far some of them manage to get, even sometimes managing getting in "good" with someone who knew the star, if the star has died, which can give them an unfortunate sheen of legitimacy.

by Anonymousreply 25709/07/2020

R254 Because you can stream a lot of shows in full online, but those talk shows are largely scrubbed, particularly the older episodes. Even for pay, you can't find a lot of these episodes in full online. I consider that a scrub. Also, since you're clearly the same poster as R255 and R256, I didn't say you couldn't find [italic] those [/italic] photos online. I said you couldn't find the Speleers one as a bricklayer. Either you must be tired or have a real difficulty with reading comprehension.

R258 Those shows aren't streamable because they probably didn't clear the rights for streaming with the other SHOWS THAT THE SOUP PUT IN THE SHOW!!! Just because you can't stream EVERYTHING doesn't mean it's being hidden for nefarious reasons!! You can't stream the entire Ed Sullivan show online, does that mean it's SCRUBBED?

Fine, I didn't read your post in full, because you and so many posters are shrieking that shit is scrubbed when you cannot do a fucking google search to begin with. It's OBVIOUS that the images from that original post are broken, not "scrubbed." Before you shriek about shit being "scrubbed," do you ever stop to think about how websites work!? Organizations don't host everything forever! It's just not practical. Servers get updated, webhosts change, etc. They aren't archives. How many photos from articles from The Sun in 2007 are available on their website in 2020, I would guess that the answer would be practically zero.

Which is tragic. Especially in local news, with the changes the newspaper industry is going through so many are rebranding into more lifestyle type sites with a news section, and have deleted their entire archive of stories as a result.

I do think there's quite a few people posting on this thread who, if they ever launched a website, there'd be a lot of broken image links directed to c:usersmarymy websitephoto.jpeg

He’s so desperate to make us believe he couldn’t possibly be one of *those* gays, that he disowned the very part that made him famous and beloved because it was overtly queeny (though naturally he pretended this move was for wokeness’ sake, like a coward).

Being affiliated with Disney, he actually had a unique opportunity to make a positive difference and encourage young gay kids from phobic homes to keep the faith, but of course he elected not to die on that hill.

Seriously, how could *this* be a total top, let alone a hetero/bisexual? I’ll guess I’ll buy he’s vers and took Efron’s ass-cherry, but nothing less than gay all the way.
