Scandal Without End: Harvey Weinstein Now Faces Sexual Battery Lawsuit

Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein could get second chance - Bryan Cranston

Bryan Cranston Says Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey Deserve a 'Second Chance'

Harvey Weinstein has been accused of rape by another woman.

She claims Weinstein first assaulted her in 2015 and then raped her in the Montage Hotel in spring a year ago after he discussed getting her a role in his Marco Polo TV series.

Weinstein allegedly sexually harassed her despite her negative response. "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 2016, Weinstein again contacted the plaintiff to meet him at The Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills, giving her the impression that she had been chosen for the role discussed for "Marco Polo".

Weinstein, who was sacked by the Weinstein Co last month, has sued his former employer for company records that he says could help him defend himself against sexual assault allegations, and for a wrongful termination case, according to court documents. She claims that he then pulled down her jeans and began to orally copulate her against her will.

A new report from Ronan Farrow in The New Yorker alleges that Weinstein enlisted Israel-based Black Cube and United States firm Kroll to stop the publication of allegations which have since been made public. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.

"Weinstein obviously cant speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual", said the representative. Her attorney says they've worked out an agreement for a limited review of material.

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.

During the meeting, he excused himself and returned in a bathrobe, but when she said she didn't want to do anything sexual, he dragged her into the bedroom where he used his "massive strength and weight to force himself on her", the suit alleges.

The actress met Weinstein in late 2011 at a party, during which he offered to help her with her career, according to the lawsuit. After he withdrew, he gripped her with one hand while using his other hand to masturbate.

She never received the part in "Marco Polo".

An unnamed actress, named Jane Doe, has recently filed a lawsuit against Weinstein and his former production company.
