Harvey Weinstein Sued by Actress Who Claims He Raped Her

2017 Summer TCA Tour- Day 16

2017 Summer TCA Tour- Day 16

The actress claims in the lawsuit that Weinstein, who she met in 2011, arranged a meeting at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills in 2015 to talk about a role on "Marco Polo", according to TMZ. The rep adds, "Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances".

A representative for Weinstein issued a statement following the filing: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein". Weinstein offered to help her with her career and got her phone number. From there, he invited her to awards show parties and maintained regular communication over the next few years.

She again visited Weinstein at the Montage in 2016 to celebrate her upcoming role in the show "Marco Polo", the site said. "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". "At some point, he said he wanted to masturbate in front of her", writes Allred. "Despite her telling Weinstein 'no, ' Weinstein proceeded to grab her wrist with one hand while using the other to masturbate in front of her until completion".

In the spring of 2016, the suit states that Weinstein contacted her and gave her the impression that she had been cast in "Marco Polo". She agreed, according to her suit. She said she did not want to do anything sexual, but she alleges that he dragged her into the bedroom and threw her on the bed. She claims that he then pulled down her jeans and began to orally copulate her against her will.

"Weinstein then used his massive weight and strength to force himself on her", the suit alleges. She doesn't say, but presumably this happened in a hotel room.

The harassment and abuse allegations against Weinstein have created led to numerous women coming forward with allegations of harassment and abuse against powerful men, including actor Kevin Spacey, numerous entertainment industry executives and politicians in the United States and overseas.

The plaintiff, who is seeking unspecified damages, is identified only as Jane Doe in the Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit that alleges sexual battery, gender violence, assault, negligence and negligent retention.
