Harvey Weinstein sued by actress over alleged hotel rape incident

Share

In a statement, Weinstein's representatives denied the allegations and claimed he was never violent with any of them. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.

As you may already know, over eighty women have accused Weinstein of assault including A-listers like Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow. Despite telling him "no", the actress says Weinstein grabbed her wrist with one hand while masturbating with his other hand until completion.

"The companies' executives, officers, directors, managing agents and employees had actual knowledge of Weinstein's repeated acts of sexual misconduct with women", the suit alleged.

Doe met with Weinstein at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills in late 2015 to discuss an acting opportunity on a television series and other projects.

An unnamed actress has reportedly sued Harvey Weinstein for allegedly raping her in 2016. He then invited her to the Montage Hotel to celebrate.

Once there, Weinsein allegedly left the room and came back in a bathrobe - a detail that multiple accusers have claimed. The actress says she told Weinstein that "she did not want to do anything sexual with him". "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". He allegedly ignored her and "forcefully threw her" on the bed, pulled down her jeans and "started to orally copulate her".

A spokesperson for Weinstein denied any allegation of non-consensual sexual encounters, as he has with the dozens of women who in recent weeks have brought their own allegations of sexual harassment and assault against the now disgraced Oscar-winning producer. She claims after the mogul learned she was an actress he offered to assist her with her career and asked for her phone number. It also names The Weinstein Co., which fired its co-founder after decades of allegations of sexual harassment were detailed in an expose by The New York Times last month.

She is suing Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Company - she says the company was aware of his pattern of using the promise of jobs to coerce actresses to engage in sexual acts - for sexual battery and gender violence. Due to the outpouring of cases against him, the New York Police Department, the LAPD, the BHPD, and London's Metropolitan Police Service and Scotland have all conducted investigations to deal with the charges.
