I always thought that the undercover scandal with Kit Harington and Rose Leslie was that they were both undercover-posh. Rose’s Scottish family lives in a castle, and Kit comes from a wealthy and well-connected English family. When Rose and Kit married in June, it seemed like a love match and a good “match” between two families who possibly appear in Debrett’s Peerage. But there might be some massive scandal, and it involves Kit being a total wreck and a cheater.
I’ve seen the stories about how Kit possibly/probably has some alcohol abuse issues, and I’ve also heard stories, here and there, about how he tends to “act single” and “like a douche” when he’s drinking. Now his alleged mistress is spilling some tea. Her name – allegedly – is Olya Sergeevna, and she’s a Russian model. Olya posted photos and text messages online this week, and I’m not going to post any of it. I trust that you can find it online, on Twitter, probably. Lipstick Alley had a summary of Olya’s claims:
– She met him in Luxembourg, his agent came up to her and asked her to hang out, she agreed.
– He presented her with gifts like a cruise on Adriatic Sea and he got her an American visa, he promised her to introduce her to successful directors.
– The affair lasted a month, the first time they hooked up was right before the wedding (with costar Rose Leslie) and she said it was disappointing.
– He’s a cokehead, he’s always intoxicated/drunk. He never could remember the things they were talking about, she was sick of the same questions like what’s the time or what were they talking about.
– He liked the way she looked, he was surprised that she wasn’t wearing any makeup but he always asked her to make him feel better. She’s got what she wanted and she’s happy it’s all over cause she didn’t want to date a celebrity/drug addict.
Olya apparently said that they had sex multiple times over the course of a month, and that he passed out a lot. She had some photos of him looking passed out, and I looked at one of the pics, and it was clearly (to my eyes) Kit. He looked just like Dead Jon Snow. Also: how would Kit get a Russian model an American visa? Was this all just some kind of Russian honey trap to infiltrate Game of Thrones? Or was it just what it seems like, Kit being an alleged cheater and douche?

Sooooo messy. But I could see it. I could mostly see the drugs, in pap photos of him he has very tired eyes that could possibly be drug related.
The chat in Belfast was that he wasn’t worried who it was. Lots of local discussions around his being in relationships that were also less than hetro
I assumed they were beards for each other or in an open marriage
He’s reportedly messy
Ugh. And silly me for falling for pretty pictures and glad to see two people so happy who I had never even heard of. I don’t even watch GOT. He sounds seriously ill. I’m not going to click on anything about that Russian model or what ever she is. Yuck.
I’ve never seen it either. I’m not much for “shows” generally. I was going to give that one a try but then I heard how rapey it is and I’m like nah.
If you are interested, I would try reading the books. They are still rough to get through but much less rapey.
Book 1 is pretty rapey (but yes, less than TV series) and fetishy and male-gazey (it feels like it was written by a 90s neckbeard for other 90s neckbeards), but they really get a lot better. You can see GRRM’s politics evolving over the course of the series in an era when there was a general growing awareness of, say, LGBTQ rights and the fact that women read fantasy too.
If you can get past Bk 1.
“the first time they hooked up was right before the wedding” Christ that is grim. Poor Rose Leslie 🙁
Am not surprised – there has long been rumours of him being a douche who puts it about. IIRC his cheating/partying was the reason they broke up at one point.
I feel for Rose as she genuinely loves him and seems like a nice person.
EDIT: And yeah the model is also iffy as hell, she clearly intended to use this as a platform to promote herself – hence the photo’s. Imagine the outcry if he’d taken photo’s like this of the model passed out naked.
He is gross if he’s a cheater, but the people sharing photos of a man, passed our and nude, are fing disgusting. We have to be better than this.
Like you said, if these were pictures of a woman we would be (rightfully) outraged. But here we are, collectively pointing each other in their direction. gah.
Yep…people would be outraged if it was a woman. This rule goes for men as well, don’t photograph anyone nude when they are passed out. or without their permission period.
Yeah, that struck me as creepy, violating, and very telling about the character of this model.
Golfer Rory Mcllroy dumped tennis player Caroline Wozniacki for doing the very same thing – tweeting out a photo that she took of him while he slept. What was the point in doing this? I don’t blame him one bit.
YES. Exactly right! If we women want to be treated as equal, the very first thing we must remember is not to do to men what we don’t want done to us.
While I think the blame here lies solely with Jon as he is the one who is in a relationship. I’m also uncomfortable with the nature of those photos. He’s passed out, and naked, and it doesn’t look like they were taken with his consent. Doesn’t that amount to revenge porn? Is that legal? I know the social repercussions for Male nudity are not the same as for women (see Jennifer Lawrence’s leaked photos versus Orlando Bloom paddle boarding naked) but it still doesn’t make this okay. If these were photos of a woman, naked and vulnerable, how would we feel? Cheating is morally wrong, and I feel great sympathy for his partner. But leaking naked photos of someone without their consent is an entirely different matter and should be treated as such
The pictures of Kit are disturbing because he clearly isn’t in any state to consent to having nude photographs taken. He may not have even known. She should be prosecuted.
Having said that, rumors have been about for ages that he has problems with alcohol and cheating. Rose should dump his ass and move on. No one should tolerate this kind of treatment at any point in a relationship, especially when they are engaged/first married. He’s scum.
The poor woman, I can’t even imagine having to deal with this so soon after my wedding. It’s awful and she deserves so much more
Agree with everything you said.
The U.S. Department of State should cancel her visa.
I tend to agree with the revenge p*rn feel.
But , I still feel like the burden is on the married celebrity to have more common sense than to put himself in a compromising position. HE has everything at stake to lose here, she does not.
The situation is messy as hell,its pretty clear the non successful, mistress will blackmail or expose him if things ever went sour, so he knew these leaks were at the very least a possibility, I doubt these type of “arrangements” have trust involved.
Nobody should be violated like that, but the reality is that they will. Its a warning to others
It is sexual abuse and a form of revenge porn. As to whether it’s legal or not, sadly, it might be in certain places because the laws aren’t adapted to the digital age. It’s still wrong and I think that this woman is a terrible person.
As for the story, I dunno, the timeline makes no sense. Like he was planning his wedding, possibly working as well and still managed to bring her on a multi-days cruise and this Brit dude who isn’t that famous and soon out of work has enough power to get her a US visa (he’s not American!) within a month and be totally wasted throughout all that?! I have no reason to disbelieve that he’d have some side-chicks, people cheat all the time, but everything else is too much in too little time
Yeah I’m ready to toss the entire story over the American visa nonsense. He’s not an American employer, which as far as I can tell is what they’re suggesing since no one’s claiming he became a U.S. citizen and married this woman.
It could have very well been a “line” from the guy. He doesn’t have the power to get her a Visa, but someone delusional enough to think they can thrive and get away with cheating, and being high constantly and be above the law and law of morality might have no qualms about telling someone that to manipulate them into sex, or be be delusional from copious amounts of stimulants and alcohol into thinking he actually had that power.
I imagine that maybe he helped her to get an American work visa by introducing her to someone he knows in the entertainment industry that could hire her. She could then prove that she had work lined up in America and get a visa. I don’t think that it’s meant to suggest that he has friends who work in the US government that he can call and get visas from, I think he helped her in a less direct way, if he did help her.
And this is something I’m finding interesting in this article but also in other articles that I’ve read here and elsewhere in which a man has either had an ex lover come out with explicit details about their relationship or had nude photos leaked: I tend to see comments that follow this pattern: “1) he shouldnt have been cheating, drinking/drugging, passing out in public, whatever 2) but the leaked photos are a form of revenge porn/ the kissing and telling is a form of sexual harassment and is absolutely wrong.” Whereas with articles about a woman having nude photos leaked or having her sexual affairs tattled about to the media, I tend to see the comments follow this pattern: “1) these photos are revenge porn/ it’s gross and wrong for people to tell intimate details about their sex life with this woman 2) but she shouldn’t have been having an affair, or drinking/drugging, or passing out in front of people who could take her picture.” In each case, were saying the same things but in a different order, and I think that the order in which we say these things gives a different meaning to what we’re saying. With the men were saying, “he shouldn’t have gotten into this situation, but even if he did, he shouldn’t have been exploited,” and with the women were saying “she shouldn’t have been exploited, but she put herself in the type of bad situation where that might happen.” Sometimes it’s really subtle and not as openly victim blaming as I’ve made it seem here, and sometimes people go out of their way to say over and over that the nude photos are horrible and exploitative and should be criminal and no one deserves that, but their comments still follow the pattern I pointed out above (what happened to her was really bad/but what she did was bad), which is generally opposite the pattern used when we talk about the same thing happening to men (what he did was bad/but what happened to him is really bad).
It is disturbing, I completely agree with your POV. I’ve seen the photo and all I could think of is that it is disguisting. Imagine if a man did this to a woman. No matter what happens between a married couple, cheating or not – no one should be taken advantage of in such a way – passed out on the bed, unaware of being photographed. It’s alarming. I am in no way defending him just to be clear but no matter the circumstances this is just horrible. And to promote yourself in this way. Seriosly imagine if a man did that to a woman. If we want equality we need to embrace the fact that these kind of things are in no way acceptable. What is happening to people.
As for Rose – shit, I don’t know what I would do to him if he did that to me. That’s also disguisting.
They are both pathetic. Unforgivable. This has a Jodi Arias feel to it. What is wrong with him. To lose your new bride you vowed to love till the end for some woman who would do this? Makes me want to take another shower. Best of luck to Rose. How miserable. Ugh
@Lousie Anne I appreciate your comment. I won’t look at the photos because it sounds like they were released and (probably) taken without his consent.
There’s no reason to release nudes etc… without the persons consent. Presumably she really wants to expose him. If she really is telling the truth about the cruise etc… couldn’t she prove her point by providing cruise tickets and other evidence?
If he has cheated than that’s awful but two wrongs don’t make a right. I can’t imagine being in Rose’s position. Because either her husband cheated and was publicly hulimated OR he didn’t cheat and was publicly hulimated. The whole situation would be incredibly stressful.
Agreed. Girls/women get exploited and abused like this all the time, but I still feel sorry for Kit too in this situation, even though the risks might not be as high. The mistress is wrong, and hopefully this backfires on her legally and career-wise. You can’t be so desperate for attention/career advancement that you’re willing to abuse and violate. She’s vile.
The Orlando and Jennifer situations are entirely different though. He chose to be naked in an open public place, whereas she had her personal private images stolen and distributed…
Yep this is revenge porn and completely wrong, regardless of what he did
Yeah, I’m not seeing the connection there. Like nobody thinks they’re the same thing because they’re NOT the same thing. It’s not related to gender, it’s related to the fact that one of them was walking around naked in public and the other had their private nudes hacked.
Um, orlando paddling naked was intentional and it was a ‘leak’ which implies without consent. JLaws pics were leaked – without her consent. Big diff you missed. And for the record, the laws are the same for men and women. We get upset more for women because we have a history of being violated by men that show little to no remorse for doing it.
Either way, these pics of Kit are gross and a violation of his privacy. It does amount to revenge porn and I hope he takes her to court for it.
How awful for Rose.
Yeah, this is bad. I feel for her too. Humiliation on a world stage. She is clearly far too good for him.
Do Kit and Rose have some kind of agreement? How could she not have known what the media did? Rose has an innocent visage, but there’s got to be some sophistication going on, I don’t believe anyone could be this blind. Or is a case of willful ignorance?
The media lies all the time about famous people. It’s entirely possible he told her the gossip was malicious and untrue. Maybe she believed him.
Even *if* they have an agreement, I can’t imagine anyone turning a blind eye to humiliation. This wasn’t a discreet affair. The lady has detailed the finer points of his drug/alcohol abuse and sexual exploits to anyone with access to twitter and google translate.
I think we should not put the blame on Rose.
Because no man has ever managed to convince a woman that “it’s all lies!”?
Come on. Don’t blame the one innocent party in all this.
I don’t think the OP was blaming Rose but I do think it is important for when to develop their intuition.
I don’t think the OP was blaming Rose but I do think it is important for women to develop their intuition.
I don’t think OP was blaming Rose either. My first thought after reading so many comments about people being unsurprised was then maybe they have an open relationship and she’s okay (like Jeremy Irons and his wife, who has talked about this) with it and if so, how could she possibly be okay. No blame. Natural to wonder whether the closest person to him might have already known if a lot of random people online already did.
Dead Jon Snow, IRL. Sad.
This is so tacky. I know that he wasn’t exactly in the right here but she is clearly an opportunist. I sense a cash-grab here. I’m surprised she didn’t blackmail him. Maybe she did and he wouldn’t pay her off so she exposed him. Either way, this is super messy for everyone involved.
This woman has given me no reason to give her the benefit of the doubt. She may have tried to squeeze him for cash and he told her no. She may have threatened to release the pics and he thought, “Surely no one is dim enough to try that. It’s illegal!” Either way, she exploited an opportunity he so stupidly provided her. She deserves to be prosecuted, but he’s also to blame for not 1. Keeping it in his pants and 2. Not finding someone more discreet to have an affair with.
I agree completely! I wonder how his wife is handling all of this.
I haven’t seen the pics yet. Are they really bad?
I’ve only seen one but it was enough for me to determine he was passed out and nude. For that reason, I don’t encourage anyone to go looking for them
Just google his name and you will see the pics. I saw them and was afraid I would get a virus on my pc (and my brain), so got off quickly. WTF. I never envisioned him as a player. I thought his relationship with Rose was so romantic. How easily fooled we can be.
@skipper – I have seen one and its clearly him, passed out and naked.
Edit: She’s released more explicit ones. They are all over twitter.
Just my opinion, but I think, in these situations, people have a responsibility NOT to look at the photos, you know? The man, whatever his faults, was taken advantage of & by viewing them, we participate in that violation. Draw a line. Don’t seek them out.
I absolutely agree with you, xo. You are just perpetuating the violation of whoever is in the pictures if you go and seek them out. Put yourself in their position and see if you want anyone searching out those pictures. I felt so sorry for Jennifer when her pics were plastered everywhere.
Are we all just living in a Russian soap opera?
I think you’re onto something.
It would explain so much lol
Yuck kit. I guess it’s wrong for Olya to take those pictures of him but what the hell does he expect when he brazenly picks an unknown model out to use that she would turn around and use him too. Poor rose.
Be very careful with what you are saying. Nobody deserves to have nude photos distributed and taken without their consent. When we say things like “he should have never put himself In that position” it is veering dangerously close to “why was she wearing that skirt/drinking/walking by herself” or “why didn’t he put his hands up/stop resisting etc. if he wasn’t guilty”. We would all be outraged if the gender roles were reversed here.
Funny how a lot of people go to this false equivalency and yet again blame the woman for a man’s wrongdoing. I don’t feel a tad bit sorry for jon snow. He totally deserved to have his dick plastered all over Twitter. And you know damn well no one would have believed any of it without the pics because people are so found of jon and ygritte’s sham marriage. Don’t blame the player, blame the game.
No Babs. Whatever Kit did, he doesn’t deserve to be a victim of revenge porn because no one does. There are no justifications for it, no good reason: no one should take and distribute pictures of you naked without your consent. If someone is passed out, regardless of what happened, you call an ambulance, not take pictures that you’ll be able to sell later on. That’s just disgusting
Babs, that’s disgusting. End of.
Babs- I think you have greater issues going on if think their marriage is sham.
In this case the woman’s wrongdoing is actually worse than the man’s wrongdoing though.
He cheated on his wife. She, after having an affair with somebody’s spouse, created and distributed nude photos of that unconscious person without consent. He’s wrong to cheat, but promoting the idea that this is deserved/ok just because someone cheated sets a nasty precedent. If this is the reaction when it happens to a man being unfaithful, how much worse will it be when some guy inevitably does this to a female celebrity who’s seen as deserving it? You may not say the same if the genders were reversed, but other people will, and it will be a lot worse.
Amen. It’s not any different because the sexes are reversed. No HUMAN deserves to be humilated or taken advantage of. Consent applies to both genders.
Word, Crowhood. This is violating af and (rightfully) a crime in some places. KH being an awful person/husband and KH’s right to consent to his own sexual publicity/privacy are two very different things.
You guess it’s wrong? Put yourself in his position and see if you’re still guessing about it. It’s beyond wrong and it’s illegal too, as I’m sure she is about to find out.
I’m with Babs and Sayrah
You have to imagine what you would think if a drunk and drugged naked woman was passed out and her illicit date twittered photos accusing her of blah blah blah. Women everywhere would be outraged. I wish more people had something called perspective.
Would you say the same thing if Kit was a woman? Taking nude pics of anyone without their permission is a violation of the body & personhood. It is wrong and people defending it, it is disgusting.
I have no problem admitting that I won’t say the same thing if Kit was a woman. But he’s not a woman. The equivalency does not stand.
Babs so you admit you are sexist. You really need to try to look into your thought process. Do you really think a law can be made regarding if someone has been cheating or not or if the person or man or a woman. This is a crime and it is regardless of circumstances.
Babs, really? You are either thick headed (simply can’t see the equivalent) or sexist.
The simple fact you have to what ifing this left and right proves my point. There’s no equivalence. But please carry on with the mental gymnastics and caping, as you look persuaded you are doing something here. I see my thick headed and sexist self out.
The same thing I expect when I wear a short skirt or a tight shirt. Human decency and the respect of consent. Whatever he did does not give her a pass. The cheating and the revenge porn are two different issues.
He was expecting sex and she very much agreed on that.
To say that he actually deserved to be photographed naked without his consent trivializes a form of abuse.
He probably deserved to be exposed, and he deserves to get dumped by his wife, but the rest is unnecessarily harmful to everyone involved.
Potentially she could be someone working at a hotel who took his pics while he was passed out or something. Like how would they even meet? British visa is much harder to get than the American one (all Eastern Europeans can get a US visa that’s valid for 10 (!!!) years), so if they met in UK it wouldn’t make sense for her to ask his help to obtain an American one.
But you know what bothers me the most – stigma that is created against Slavic women. Once a year there’s a story about Eastern European woman involved in a scandal – and all of them are instantly sluts and “mail brides”. Someone married like Ashton Kutcher bathes with 15 American strippers and porn stars – people just shrug it off. Hate to break it to you, but here you we have much more gold diggers and women without integrity per capita
Gwen..those are all the same things that bothered me about this story. Not buying any of it.
Oops..can’t edit so just adding that I totally buy he’s a coked out wanker whose dick can’t always remember where it was last night. I don’t buy that he’s had a protracted affair including the details provided with a woman who may or may not be a fictional twitter handle.
I honestly don’t care too much about him, but I really hope he uses your theory and takes that woman to court.
Uh yeah that looks just like dead Jon snow. It’s him or his Madame Tussaud’s wax likeness.
There are some people apparently (I don’t want to look for the images myself) saying the naked shots look suspiciously like KH as Jon Snow in scenes from GOH (death scene, table scene) and images are doctored.
Another angle: I have met two other dudes who look *exactly* like KH–that hair and build and face aren’t unique. It *could* be a setup with a doppelganger.
Third angle: It’s KH and he’s an asshole.
He’s holding a Mac laptop in the photos, so I don’t think it has anything to do with GoT. I’m not going to judge him anymore though because the photos are just f****** awful, such a violation. I wish I hadn’t seen them.
I’d never want to be married to him, but for now I just feel sympathy for him and Rose. I hope he cleans up his act, he seems like an otherwise nice guy.
This is exactly what happens when people cheat. Bad shit. He should take this woman to court for the sick photos. He should lose his wife. Rose, who’s most likely suffering in all this drama, is forced to wade through nasty, thick, all-encompassing sludge until she emerges on the other side. Unless, of course, she’s fine with gross drama and has some juicy side ‘buns’ of her own.
No, that’s not what happens when you cheat. If you cheat, you might get caught, you might lose your partner, you might father/birth a child you didn’t plan, it might become very expensive. But revenge porn shouldn’t be the result of cheating, neither is extorsion. This shouldn’t happen and should be illegal in every jurisdictions.
That’s bad shit! Most people end up hurt and have to go through hell and back. It’s bad. And it’s shit. This woman went a step further, and she’s not the only example. Men have been doing this all along. She should suffer consequences. Why is this hard to understand lol? This woman needs jail time. But so does Harvey Weinstein which is why I’m judicially cynical.
I’m behind. Is this not illegal? (I’ll go find an answer . . . .)
Well well well I guess here was some truth to the blind gossip stories about him being a cheat. Poor rose
It sucks if she was completely blind sided by this, but she’s rich, successful, and beautiful. More like, eh, she’ll move on and he’ll regret it for life.
He’s a man. It won’t ruin his livelihood.
No. But he might genuinely regret losing Rose if/when she walks?
How could he even get her a visa? he’s a Brit! And honestly like many said above, if she did take those pics (or if someone else in the hotel did), this is revenge porn or whatever and she should 100% be prosecuted. WTF
I imagine he called his team and they organised it for him, not a situation where he personally had connections or did the work himself. It’s a very easy thing to do if you can pass off all the legwork.
I can’t wait until some guy posts photos of a naked female celebrity and we call it tea. Oh, and say bad shit happens when you cheat.
She should pay for those photos. Handcuffs might be nice, but unfortunately doubtful.
I hope he sues as everyone needs to understand that this sort of behaviour is wrong/illegal regardless of the circumstances. They had a consensual affair but its obvs that that consent did not include taking photo’s (he is clearly not in a state to consent or even know they were being taken).
She VERY clearly took these photos to use for her benefit in some way – money, work opportunities, a higher profile etc..
I hope this is a wake up call for him and he gets the help he needs for his obvs substance/booze abuse issues. He’ll be a very very lucky man is Rose sticks by him.
Sadly, the issue with such a case is that the law is often outdated and doesn’t take into account all the messed up ways one can harass, defame, extort and abuse people in the digital age. Most criminal codes aren’t prepared for revenge porn and it’s taking quite a while to figure out how to deal with that. I sure hope he and anyone in such a situation sues, but until laws are changed, it doesn’t mean that the case will be able to go anywhere
Unfortunately, there has been a lot of rumors about him cheating (supposedly why he and Rose have been on and off throughout the years) and having an alcohol and coke problem.
That being said, maybe if anything positive comes out of this, he will get help. Rose deserves better than this.
The original links of the pics have been taken down though they are on some of the gossip pages. The pics are gross.
Everything about this is disgusting.
In the blind item I read, his side piece was a bar waitress.
I feel very sorry for his wife. Even if she turns a blind eye to his alcoholism and drug use (she may even have her own issues, who knows?) – but I’m sure the cheating is a deal breaker. For her sake I hope so.
I firmly believe that people know what kind of person they are married to. At the least, Rose would know he’s an addict. She chose to marry him anyway.
I bet she hoped he would change and keep it in his pants after they exchanged vows. Wishful thinking obviously.
I hope she dumps him immediately no matter how much it hurts. Men like this never change. She should run as fast as she can or she will face a lifetime of heartache with this guy.
You’re right and I concur.
I honestly thought Rose should’ve pulled the plug when those videos kept coming out of him being a drunk mess in public. This guy needs rehab.
Yes and I also believe she knows who and what her husband is. She’s not the first woman to overlook her man’s faults for “love”. I would put him on the curb.
I hope she has the strength. I think seeing the photos and the mistress accounts will make this very real to his wife. Its one thing to have suspicions but when there is photographic proof like this- it will destroy their relationship and traumatize her. He is such an awful person i hope she is not pregnant!!!
Ive been cheated on and confronted with undeniable photographic evidence and it was painful. I hated him the last year of our relationship and never believed a single Word out of his mouth again.
Duuuuuuude. How completely sh!tty. Oh Kit, what have you done 🤦🏻♀️
I have never gotten this guys appeal, he always looks so damn miserable to me, compared to Rose who looks lovely (I love redheads though lol). Is he miserable because he has an actual addiction then? He needs help? Seems like an awful thing to do to your (NEW!) wife, I mean, aren’t you even going to give the marriage a chance (if this is true of course). Major fail Kit!
Believe it or not, some people believe that cheating is compatible with marriage. They are usually emotionally immature with low character who want it all.
Yeah you’re right, I just hate serial cheaters because they never take into account the psychological damage that cheating does to their spouse, in terms of damaging their confidence, staying out of fear etc. I have more forgiveness for someone who screws up once and then apologises for it, this sort of reoccurring behaviour is abuse in my opinion. But he was upper class right? Maybe he’s just in-bread like one of those poor dogs that can’t breathe
Sigh. Those weddding picture were so beautiful and joyful. What a mess.
I thought the same thing. I scrolled through the wedding pics with a smile. My J and Eggy (Jeggy) tied the knot. I haven’t seen the photos of a passed out drunk/drugged Kit. Don’t like the way it makes me feel…man or woman.
He was definitely acting single here in Brazil (2016) At the time I thought he was, but now I don’t know.
He hook up with a famous actress in Brazil Carnival 2016.
About Leslie, I met her last october in a first class/business lounge in JFK. She is beautiful. Perfect skin. However she abruptly refused to talk or take pictures with fans, including kids who aproached her at the lounge.
People can choose whether or not they want to interact with/take pictures with strangers anytime they want, as far as I’m concerned. Fans aren’t entitled to access whenever/ whereever they please.
If they were at a GOT event or con where the point of the event is meet and greet and photos for fans, that’s one thing, but if someone is just going about their life, not at work? She was fine to decline to be “on” for strangers, to decline to not chat or take pics (even if some other actor has done it before in a similar situation, even if she’s done it before in a similar situation)
She has every right to refuse pics (including with kids) on her private time. I don’t understand why people feel so bloody entitled to a celeb’s private time. The kids parents should teach them so good manners and that they can’t always get what they want AND they should respect other peoples’ privacy. I’d say no also.
I travel with a service dog and I cannot tell you how many times parents ignore the do not pet sign and send their kids over to pet him. I lost it one day on a couple of kids whom I had said no to at least 3 times.
Yep, I’m with “right of refusal” when not at work/doing promos etc.
But then, I think star-f*cking is stupid and I don’t get why people want to approach ‘n gush over celebs anyway. Have some pride.
This is so random but a guy I went to uni with (extreme bro, does coke and mdma like it’s candy) said he partied with him in Brazil and couldn’t keep up with his partying ways. I always thought it wa bullshit but after reading this …
This is why I think it’s so silly when people talk about how happy people look on their wedding day (either in person or in videos/pictures). It’s not hard to dress up and smile for a party in your honor. You never know what goes on privately between a couple.
I don’t think it’s silly to assume if people look happy on their wedding day it’s because they are happy. It’s not simply a day you dress up and have a party, presumably it’s the day you commit to each other. No one needs to get married if they don’t want to or have doubts about the other person. Both of these people could have backed out.
I kind of think that he married Rose Leslie partly to improve his image. There are allegedly pics of him being seriously drunk in public and a wedding with a serious girl like Rose Leslie would look as if he had managed to pull his act together.
I don’t think it is big love in this case. They never seemed that loved up to me. They do probably like each other and feel they were equals and such.
As opposed to an “unserious” girl? What does that even mean?
This is revenge p*rn, not “tea.”
No it’s not. Unless shes posting intimate photos or video of that sexual nature. So far it is just tea spilling of texts and unflattering photos.
Revenge p is serious. This isnt that.
She (well, someone) took pictures of a naked passed out person and distributed them for their own profit. That person was in no state to consent to having those pictures taken (or consent to anything else at that point). Those aren’t unflattering pictures, it’s revenge porn
Yes. yes it is. It completely is. It put me in mind of the horrible, horrible Chris Farley photos and it is disgusting to do this to someone. Even if they are a piece of sh*t.
Yes, it is. They’re naked photos taken of an unconscious person. Sorry if you want to only save that definition for someone you consider “pure enough,” but that’s not how it works.
It’s revenge porn.
How would you feel?
I missed the naked exposure part.
I believe this. He is that dude
Now how can he get her an American visa? Saying she works for him doing something no other American can do? He has no clout and it’s hard to get a visa even for people with legitimate talent/ work experience. I never got his appeal. He’s ok as Jon Snow but anything else not so much.
Yeah, that part struck me too, it makes absolutely no sense that he’d be able to get her a visa for a country he’s not even a citizen of. I mean, even Melania didn’t have it that easy and the people she hung out with had more power and influence than Kit ever will have (they were also American)! And all this within a month?! Who manages to go on a cruise for a few days, work, plan a wedding in another country, push to get a random side-piece a visa all while being high as a kite and passing out for hours? Seriously, that’ll take some serious skills
Poor Rose. If the timeline is remotely true, he should have called off the wedding. He gaslit her and got trapped by a professional. No sympathy for him. He shouldn’t have been in the situation to begin with.
Gd, poor Rose. I hope she has a strong family and good friends to turn to for support.
The visa…..he couldn’t get a visa but I’m thinking he facilitated it by asking someone who could in US maybe his manager who introduced them ( if he is American) to apply for it.
The nudes should promote as much outrage as if they were of a woman. He did not consent.
Honestly I feel so bad for her (the wife.) Part of me really Hope’s she knew about the cheating before this story broke. Because there is nothing more humiliating than finding out from the other person. I was cheated on in my last relationship and I found out when the woman called my job in the middle of the day and told me. And it was horrible. I hope shes okay, and has a good support system.
Don’t people in their social-economic status only marry to keep the money in their socio-economic status? I don’t know. What I do know is there is no way Rose didn’t know what she was marrying. Though he has probably violated the code of non-public embarrassment. Harder and harder in today’s world. Fortunately, if you have the kind of influence that can procure an American visa, you can get photos taken down from Twitter, and modulate Google searches.
His rep has denied it and says he never met her and has never been to Luxembourg. Well…we will see. 😒 My guess is money is changing hands right now.
I think his alcohol issues are indisputable though. He’s 31 years old. Way too old for there to be multiple videos of him being a drunken mess in public. Who knows? Maybe this will be a catalyst for him to get help… 😒
I guess you are right.
One photo doesn’t prove that much especially as she isn’t in the picture. They will explain it away or make it go away or say his phone had been stolen or something like that.
Specifically denying he’s been to Luxembourg would be a pretty risky thing to say if he had been there, so I guess we’ll see.
If she’s making it up, why would she say Luxembourg and not somewhere he’d definitely been? She included so many details, it seems like it’d be relatively easy to prove or disprove her claims, if the tabloids are interested in investigating further.
Dunno. By 28 there were multiple drunken in public videos of me and I’m not even a celebrity… and phone cameras weren’t around. Can none of you remember being young?
At 28 you are a grown-ass woman. But that’s just my humble opinion. 🙂
Remember a time when people practiced discretion in their adultry.
Yeah, me as well.
Money used to make people more discreet. *lol*
Back then the rich adulterer – often male – would pay his “conquest” or at least get her a job. Nowadays as adultery no longer equals social suicide the adulterer doesn’t pay any more and the other party sells her story to the press to cover the bills.
I’m really depressed today because yesterday I got the family questions families ask you and some of them you hate. It ripped off a bandaid. I’ve been trying for years to get my husband here legally on a visa. We don’t live together and the only time we see each other is when I visit him. I then read an article where a rich celebrity who isn’t even American just uses his fame to get a Russian model a visa like it’s nothing. Just another reminder of how f*cked up our country is. This is so unfair.
Highly doubtful he was able to get anyone a visa. And it sounds like there’s something else going on in your situation. Spousal visas typically take about three months to a year to obtain not years.
@Tiffany totally agree. People today are so messy and sloppy. The key to indiscretion is discretion.
Except he can’t get her a visa. I know you’re in a horrible situation – but it’s just BS – either from the tabloid or from the woman herself. There’s NO way he could.
Game of Thrones is an important franchise. So if the studio / production company would “employ” this russian model for a movie or a foto shoot then they could get her a visa. There are always visa exceptions if a “highly skilled*” foreigner is needed to do a “job*”.
* = it is humour
Perhaps she didn’t get what he promised neither in the …room nor afterwards? *LOL*
‘Got her a visa’ – means he probably covered the cost of the visa and put himself as a sponsor for her expenses in America. This would for sure get you at least a tourist visa.
Cue the announcement that he is going into rehab for some sort of emotional issues along with whatever addiction he has. It should be interesting to see how his team (provided he has one) will handle this.
There have been blind items about him being a cheater for a while. Supposedly he has had a long standing affair with Emilia Clarke. An easy google search will show everything. Who knows what the truth is.
The stuff about him and Emilia Clarke is just made up by super fans who are desperate for Dany and Jon to be a couple 4real, imo. The only people I see talking about or spreading that rumour obviously ship them (lots oh “ohhh I heard they’ve been having an affair, they’re such a perfect couple”).
Kit’s father is only a baronet. A baronetcy is not a peerage, they are commoners. Rose Leslie’s father failed to pay the bills on his castle and the family was evicted. The castle had been on Airbnb for some time. Point is, neither family is Downton Abbey.
Kit has hang out with that girl in Brazil, during that 2016 vacation. But this sounds like nonsense. Or something about this story is not adding up. If she was in a relationship with him, why is she not in one picture with him? During this time Kit was also shooting the last season of GOT, He had a grueling schedule and people were tracking him 24/7, in search of GoT spoilers.
I believe this woman, and you can tell she’s Russian by how blunt and honest her description is. I’m 1/4 Russian Canadian.
I feel very sad for his new bride, she likely had no idea and will be blindsided by this affair.
Jon Snow is about to get some serious press for GOT, and that, is going to be interesting…
You know nothing Jon Hoe.
OMG, you are hilarious! 😉
Some people will go to any length to find out spoilers….
Getting a US visa for a russian model?
It depends how well-connected and how rich Harington and his family are. I know there are ways “around” the offical visa requirements and that people with connections can speed up things and help over obstacles.
But I don’t know how much influence the Harington family wields.
Another way would be if Harington would ask his Hollywood connections to help: for example by getting her a “90-day work visa” by employing her on a movie. That Game of Thrones franchise is worth a lot and sometimes studios help / bend over backwards for important actors.
I wonder about Rose Leslie. Will she stick to him? A lot of British (and other) upper class women stick to their husbands through affairs and substance abuse.
And I suspect she knew because of this: in rich families it is customary to investigate potential mates before the wedding: which sceletons are in the family closet? Debts? Affairs? Illegitimate children?
It is done to protect the family wealth. And when you are RICH and it doesn’t matter if you blow Pounds 30.000 on an investigation you go ahead. Because a messy marriage or a messy divorce would be far worse than losing that five-figured sum.
Well, the marriage is already messy if he cheats on her like this while being high on booze and coke.
Any speculation why she married him?
There’s no reason to believe any of this, really. (And I think the name above is not her name?
Photoshopping makes anything possible.
Rumors from Blind Items are garbage, and LSA is not exactly a seal of authenticity.
And is there actually a woman behind this, or is this a bot test operation to see how far #metoo can be weaponized? (Sorry that sounds paranoid, but we live in strange times.)
Well, seems like the one thing we can know for sure is that it is indeed Kit Harington on a bed and it got published by a russian model.
She isn’t necessarily the photographer but she did publish it.
Harington didn’t necessarily sleep with her just because he is naked on a bed. Theoretically it is totally possible he was just so bloody tired he passed out and somebody photographed him. Could have been a friend who was staying with him and wanted to embarass him with that pic the next day. Somehow that pic then leaked …
I can’t help but feel really bad for him. What a nightmare. He deserved to be outed as a sleazebag cheater, but the photos are such a violation.
I think Rose knew who he was and what kind of stuff he got up to when he was away from her, but knowing and seeing are two very different things. You can’t help who you fall in love with, but you can decide not to let that person hurt you anymore.
It’s totally revenge porn! But she probably was told he’d deny all this anyway, which could cancel that law enforcement option out.
Drunken mistakes that only last a month are now considered cheating/relationships.
I’m in trouble. Lmao
They’ve always been considered cheating. Surprise.
Ugh this whole thing is so depressing for all the reasons, every awful reason… good lord.
in this day and age, the photos could easily be fake.
I’m highly doubtful of the visa story, so the rest is suspect. However, she got those pictures somehow, so he’s not entirely innocent either. She was probably trying to blackmail him, and he wouldn’t pay.
I didn’t know about his partying ways, etc….😮 No, Jon Snow, nooooooooooo!!!! 🥴🤤🐉🐲
Taking nude pics when someone clearly has not given their consent should be a crime.
Model exposes actor in public. Why? Self-gain. Trashy move on her part. How did he hurt her, again? Garbage move. No judgement from me re him – that’s Rose’s job.
I wish I hadn’t, but I found the pictures. This so-called “model” sure is acting like a felon; I hope she gets sued like no-body’s business.
Everybody over on this site being all measured, reasonable and PC about it all. Am here for the gossip. Am here to say I believe the trashy Russian girl…lol. I believe the visa story cause I hear American men, British men and European men promising these Eastern European and Russian girls all sorts of tall promises…so I believe the visa promise of the “alleged” coke-head movie star. Jon Snow apparently loves snow..blow. Shocking…shocking, I tell ya…*clutching my fake pearls*
Please, the Russian is telling the truth…I hate when people come on here giving proven douches the benefit of the doubt. She is trash, undoubtedly, but she ain’t lying. She has come for a shake-down of the movie star…all those embargos against the Russians making life hard over there ….a girl gots to earn her living and she is truth-telling for her money.
That pretty little almost-aristo bride should throw his clothes out the highly-mortgaged castle window.
Ha, this IS some juicy gossip and I’m here for it as well. That’s 100% him in the pics and I totally believe her.
I find all the excuses made for him on this site hilarious.
Also, there are tons of rumors about his behavior online, so this does not come as surprise.
I personally would never defend a cheater, but taking a nude photo of a sleeping person and making it public, without that person’s permission, well that’s one of the most disgusting actions a person can take. I wish she would go to jail for that.
Is it possible that someone who looks like Kit Harington pretended to be him in order to have sex with a model? It would be easy to fake being him because he has a lot of facial hair. Nobody really knows what he looks like.
Really? Seriously? I mean seeeerrrioooousllllly…? You love Jon Snow that much that you will take Joan D’Arc off her cross? LOLLLLOl.
Yes. Personally I am more disturbed that there are people here who say they’ve never even seen GOT. Never even bothered to watch a single episode!
Having never watched an episode of Game of Thrones I can’t attest to this guy’s acting abilities. However, something about him has always rubbed me the wrong way. He just seems highly overrrated; I personally have never found him remotely attractive. 🤷🏼♀️
Why are so many people referring to him by his character’s name?
Cheating is bad. I know that first hand, my mom never recovered from it and I did not have a family as a long term result because of my dad’s cheating. But come on. If this was a woman, photograped naked without consent, that would be the only topic of discussion here. It is despicable, no matter the sex.
The idea of exposing a naked photo of a passed out person is just gross and vile. I don’t know what he has done in his marriage and I don’t care. I just hope that she is prosecuted.
I almost have the feeling she roofied him the level of passed out seems extreme. Either way, he was in no position to consent to anything, probably not even sex.
Her name is Olga Vlaslova
Wow, I don’t care that he cheated or not. That is between him and his wife. What bothers me is the total violation, the sexual assault of these photos. If he were a woman in this position, we would be asking if she was roofied and then taken pictures of without her consent. This is sexual assault frankly.
