Harvey Weinstein Sued by Unnamed Actress Who Alleges Producer Raped Her

Harvey Weinstein Sued by Unnamed Actress Who Alleges Producer Raped Her

"Mr. Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual".

Weinstein offered to help her with her career and got her phone number.

According to the court documents, the two "maintained regular communication ... every few months thereafter". Weinstein allegedly kept in contact with the woman over the years, inviting her to industry events like parties and award shows. "Despite her telling Weinstein 'no, ' Weinstein proceeded to grip her wrist with one hand while using the other to masturbate in front of her to completion". The documents do not specify where the incident took place within the hotel.

In late 2015, she met him to discuss a role in the TV show "Marco Polo", during which he grabbed her and she claims masturbated in front of her, according to the lawsuit.

More than 50 women have claimed that Weinstein sexually harassed or assaulted them over the past three decades and Weinstein has been expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. She said she wasn't OK with that.

The actress claims that Weinstein pulled her jeans down and began performing oral sex on her, at which point she tried to push her off of him. During that meeting she alleges she was raped.

Police in London, New York and Los Angeles are investigating the producer who has been accused by dozens of women of sexual harassment and assault.

She goes on to say in 2016 she met him again at the Montage to "celebrate her upcoming role in "Marco Polo".

The New York Police Department is now gathering evidence against Weinstein after detectives interviewed actress Paz de la Huerta, who claims Weinstein raped her twice in 2010.

Tuesday's suit also states that TWC was aware of Weinstein's pattern "of using his power and the promise of procuring jobs to coerce and force actresses to engage in sexual acts with him". Los Angeles police are also probing for "lewd conduct" stemming from an incident in 2015, while a similar investigation is underway in Beverly Hills.

With thousands of women embracing the "Me Too" movement to own their histories of sexual harassment and abuse, and those issues swirling at high volume in the culture overall, parents are reaching for teachable moments in the post-Weinstein world.
