Al Gore’s Divorce Stories
When the news of Al Gore’s impending divorce from his wife Tipper was recently announced, the reason given for the split was that the senior couple had simply grown apart. The explanation seemed a bit odd for a couple who had been married for 4 decades and have grown children and grandchildren too. Suspicions of an affair died when no confirmation surfaced and the 62-year-old Gore seemed like a normal, but sedate senior who was simply tired of his marriage.
Now, allegations that Al Gore sexually assaulted a woman in a Portland, hotel room in 2006 are dominating the tabloid headlines and raising doubts about the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s story that he and wife Tipper simply “grew apart” after 40 years of marriage. The woman in question was a masseuse who filed a 73-page police report that describes how she was called to the Hotel Lucia on Oct. 24, 2006 in order to massage â€œa special guestâ€ at 10:30 p.m. and although Gore’s lawyers have called the story “absolutely false” the report describes the events in unflattering detail.
The masseuse says she was â€œshocked at his craziness” when Gore began displaying inappropriate behavior and that she tried to get away but the former vice president was too strong for her. The report stated that â€œHe grabbed me, engulfed me in embrace, tongue kissed me, massaged me, groped by breasts and painfully squeezed my nipples through my clothing, pressed his pelvis against mine, rubbed my buttocks with his hands and fingers and rubbed himself against my crotch, saying, ‘You know you want to do it.’” In the end she called him a “crazed sex poodle.”
The records show that the masseuse did not file her report immediately and she also sold her story to the Enquirer for a tidy sum, leading to questions as to why she did not come forward sooner. She has stated that at the time, her friends told her not to tell the police and that she should â€œJust suck it up; otherwise, the world’s going to be destroyed from global warming.” She did not notify the police of the event until January 2009 and did not attempt to press charges.
Because the allegations were filed in a police report doesn’t necessarily make them true and of course, Al Gore’s handlers deny them. But it might help to remember that the Enquirer was also the first to break many high profile sex stories like the John Edwards’ and Tiger Woods’ affairs.
Whether or not the ex-VP actually is a senior sex-poodle will probably remain an unproven theory for the time being, however, one thing seems certain, Al Gore’s image will never be quite the same.
