Harvey Weinstein’s attorney has dismissed the latest allegations of forcing a 16-year old model to grope him in order to cast her in a movie.
An unnamed woman has come forward with her groping allegations against the disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein. According to the claims, she met the producer in the year 2002, nearly 15 years back.
She was a teen model then and met Weinstein in search of a movie role. He took her back to his apartment and promised her a role like Penelope Cruz and Gwyneth Paltrow in return of sexual pleasure. Saying this he pulled down his pants and pulled out his penis, forcing her to give a massage. She claims to have fled the apartment after it. However, she was still given a minor role in 2004’s Nanny Diaries.
She was still in touch with the producer till 2008, when she agreed to meet him again in his office, where the same scene took place as before when he pulled out his penis. This is when she made it clear that she isn’t interested in pleasuring Weinstein. Upon this Harvey said that she would never get any work in Hollywood.
Upon this allegation, Harvey Weinstein’s lawyer, Ben Brafman, has said that the claim is preposterous. This allegation is nearly 20 years old and will be marked false like so many others who are already exposed as liars.
This movie producer still remains under investigation due to the claims of sexual assault against him by more than 100 women in the industry. There are charges running over him in London, Los Angeles, and New York.
In 2017, the New York Times and the New Yorker reported a number of accusations against him of sexual assault, sexual abuse, and rape over 30 years. This news shortly initiated many women to come forward with their own stories of sexual assault on social media under the #MeToo.
