Harvey Weinstein Accuser Releases Video of Creepy Business Meeting Before Alleged Rape

Harvey Weinstein Accuser Releases Video of Creepy Business Meeting Before Alleged Rape

Apparently, Thompson had visited The Weinstein Company offices in NY to make a business pitch for her company's services and had recorded their meeting as part of the demo.

Ms Thompson said she was under the impression it was to close the deal but instead she claims he lured her to his room and raped her.

A video shows Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein inappropriately touching a woman during a business meeting.

Thompson recorded the meeting as part of the demo, and in the video obtained by Sky News, it's immediately clear that something is amiss.

The meeting gets off to an very bad start as Weinstein brushes away a handshake and embraces Thompson in a hug, making long strokes down her back and saying "That's nice'".

At one point, she jokes: "Data's so hot right now". The sexual assault survivor released a recording, shown by Sky News that was filmed in 2011.

He said, "What they shared with us, when viewed in its entirety, in context and not in select excerpts, demonstrates that there is nothing forceful, but casual - if not awkward - flirting from both parties".

Weinstein was charged in Manhattan criminal court earlier this year with the rape and sexual abuse of two separate women in 2013 and 2004.

"If I would try to fight myself away from him, he would then move around to where he could block me in somewhere, and he's a big individual", Thompson told Sky News.

The conversation, captured on camera, sees Weinstein asking if he is "allowed to flirt" and stating that Thompson is "hot". "It's okay, would you like to do it some more?"

Thompson appears visibly uncomfortable and begins to squirm, saying, "A little bit - a little high, that's a little high, that's a little high".

Thompson thought that she would be meeting with the marketing team. She said Weinstein led her to a hotel room and raped her.

She added: "At first I tried to volley a little bit with him. It's not bad", he says as he rubs her back.

When asked if she "might have encouraged him", Thompson replied, "I don't think I purposely encouraged him". She told Sky News, "I worked in Wall Street before I went to business school, and I worked in an environment that was heavily male dominated..."

The meeting goes on like that from there.

Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex. Anything short of that is meant to make Mr. Weinstein appear inappropriate, and even exploitative.

The two other women in that specific lawsuit claim Weinstein battered and assaulted them in hotel rooms during incidents dating back to the nineties. "It was produced by Ms Thompson to bolster her position in a civil lawsuit seeking money. This is a further attempt to publicly disgrace Mr. Weinstein for financial gain, and we will not stand for it. Facts do matter". They include: film actress Rose McGowan, who said Weinstein raped her in 1997 in Utah; "Sopranos" actress Annabella Sciorra, who said he raped her in her NY apartment in 1992; and the Norwegian actress Natassia Malthe, who said he attacked her in a London hotel room in 2008.
