Lupita Nyong"o Reveals Her Own Harvey Weinstein Massage Incident — That Happened With His Kids Nearby!

We knew the Harvey Weinstein stories weren't over. Sadly, now we're hearing one from Lupita Nyong'o. Related: All 45+ Women Who Have Accused Harvey Weinstein So Far The Black Panther actress opened up in a lengthy New York Times op-ed on Thursday, in which she says she felt "a flare of rage" in learning how many women had [...] We knew the Harvey Weinstein stories weren't over. Sadly, now we're hearing one from Lupita Nyong'o. Related: All 45+ Women Who Have Accused Harvey Weinstein So Far The Black Panther actress opened up in a lengthy New York Times op-ed on Thursday, in which she says she felt "a flare of rage" in learning how many women had been through what she had: "I had shelved my experience with Harvey far in the recesses of my mind, joining in the conspiracy of silence that has allowed this predator to prowl for so many years. I had felt very much alone when these things happened, and I had blamed myself for a lot of it, quite like many of the other women who have shared their stories. But now that this is being discussed openly, I have not been able to avoid the memories resurfacing. I have felt sick in the pit of my stomach." Here is her story: "I met Harvey Weinstein in 2011 at an awards ceremony in Berlin, while I was still a student at the Yale School of Drama. An intermediary introduced him to me as "the most powerful producer in Hollywood." As an aspiring actress, I was of course eager to meet people in the industry but cautious about strangers, and the intentions of men in general." She asked her dinner companions about Harvey and was given the typical response that he could be "a bully" -- which meant it was better to have him in her corner than against her. Ultimately she says he was somewhat "charming" despite his directness, and that "he didn't alarm" her at first. So when he invited her to watch a screening of a film with his family at his home in Connecticut -- near where she was living in New Haven -- she accepted. Related: Channing Tatum Cuts All Ties With The Weinstein Company His family was actually there, at least. But when they all gathered to watch the film, that's when Harvey pounced: "I settled in for the film, but about 15 minutes in, Harvey came for me, saying he wanted to show me something. I protested that I wanted to finish the film first, but he insisted I go with him, laying down the law as though I too was one of his children." In his home with his children there. Ick. "Harvey led me into a bedroom — his bedroom — and announced that he wanted to give me a massage. I thought he was joking at first. He was not. For the first time since I met him, I felt unsafe. I panicked a little and thought quickly to offer to give him one instead: It would allow me to be in control physically, to know exactly where his hands were at all times... He agreed to this and lay on the bed. I began to massage his back to buy myself time to figure out how to extricate myself from this undesirable situation. Before long he said he wanted to take off his pants. I told him not to do that and informed him that it would make me extremely uncomfortable. He got up anyway to do so and I headed for the door, saying that I was not at all comfortable with that. 'If we're not going to watch the film, I really should head back to school,' I said. I opened the door and stood by the frame. He put his shirt on and again mentioned how stubborn I was. I agreed with an easy laugh, trying to get myself out of the situation safely. I was after all on his premises, and the members of his household, the potential witnesses, were all (strategically, it seems to me now) in a soundproof room." That time, Lupita was able to leave somewhat easily enough. She says she even justified the massage request to herself, though it helped that Harvey had enticed her with the possibility of a job (on an HBO show she later found out was already off the air). But she was still uneasy with Harvey, so when he invited her to a reading of the play version of Finding Neverland, she politely refused -- until he told her she could bring anyone she wanted. She attended with two male friends. Related: Quentin Tarantino Knew Harvey 'Did A Couple Of These Things'! Nothing untoward happened the entire evening, including when a large group went out for dinner and drinks. So the next time he invited her to a screening -- this time of Madonna's film W.E. -- she accepted. "Feeling more confident about the new sense of boundaries that we had established in our last meeting, I attended the screening on my own this time. Afterward, as planned, his male assistant arranged for me to get to the Tribeca Grill, where Harvey would be joining us. I met a female assistant when I arrived there. I was expecting that it would be a group of us, as it had been for the reading, but she informed me it would just be Mr. Weinstein. She would sit with me until he arrived. She seemed on edge, but I could only imagine how stressful it was to work for a man who had so much going on." As with other stories we've heard, the assistant "immediately disappeared" after Harvey arrived. And this time he was direct: "Before the starters arrived, he announced: 'Let's cut to the chase. I have a private room upstairs where we can have the rest of our meal.' I was stunned. I told him I preferred to eat in the restaurant. He told me not to be so naïve. If I wanted to be an actress, then I had to be willing to do this sort of thing. He said he had dated Famous Actress X and Y and look where that had gotten them. I was silent for a while before I mustered up the courage to politely decline his offer. 'You have no idea what you are passing up,' he said. 'With all due respect, I would not be able to sleep at night if I did what you are asking, so I must pass,' I replied." That's when Lupita knew Harvey was through with her; she asked him if they were good and recalls his chilling response: "'I don't know about your career, but you'll be fine,' he said. It felt like both a threat and a reassurance at the same time; of what, I couldn't be sure." Lupita made a vow to herself never to work with Weinstein, a vow she kept when he tried to entice her following her Oscar win for 12 Years A Slave. Related: LAPD Opens Harvey Weinstein Rape Investigation She explains why she's telling her story now -- for all the women who are like she was: "I share all of this now because I know now what I did not know then. I was part of a growing community of women who were secretly dealing with harassment by Harvey Weinstein. But I also did not know that there was a world in which anybody would care about my experience with him. You see, I was entering into a community that Harvey Weinstein had been in, and even shaped, long before I got there. He was one of the first people I met in the industry, and he told me, "This is the way it is." And wherever I looked, everyone seemed to be bracing themselves and dealing with him, unchallenged. I did not know that things could change. I did not know that anybody wanted things to change. So my survival plan was to avoid Harvey and men like him at all costs, and I did not know that I had allies in this." She concludes: "Now that we are speaking, let us never shut up about this kind of thing. I speak up to make certain that this is not the kind of misconduct that deserves a second chance. I speak up to contribute to the end of the conspiracy of silence. Amen, sister. You can read her full op-ed HERE. [Image via Apega/Michael Wright/WENN.].....»»

Model Zoe Brock Details Being "Harveyed" By Harvey Weinstein — Read Her Upsetting Account HERE

Harvey Weinstein's list of victims only seems to be growing. Following the explosive New York Times exposé which detailed the indie movie mogul's decades of sexual harassment, several women have come forward to discuss their unsavory experiences with Weinstein. One of the latest people to speak out is model Zoe Brock. Related: Nelly Responds To Sexual Assault [...] Harvey Weinstein's list of victims only seems to be growing. Following the explosive New York Times exposé which detailed the indie movie mogul's decades of sexual harassment, several women have come forward to discuss their unsavory experiences with Weinstein. One of the latest people to speak out is model Zoe Brock. Related: Nelly Responds To Sexual Assault Arrest It's been 20 years since Miz Brock's encounter with Harvey, but she clearly remembers how he allegedly lured her back to his hotel room and begged for a massage. Now, if you read the Times coverage, you know that was Weinstein's total M.O. Per Zoe's Medium post, she was only 23 years old when she was "Harveyed." Apparently, the New Zealand-born beauty met Weinstein in 1997 while they were both at the Cannes Film Festival. She revealed: "I met Harvey Weinstein in Cannes at the Film Festival. We were seated next to each other at a fancy dinner. I didn't catch his name and assumed I was talking to another hungry producer trying to sell a little movie to the big wigs. Feeling sorry for him, I went out of my way to be entertaining and nice. It wasn't until later in the meal that I asked the name of his production company." After learning that they had a mutual friend in common, the two industry professionals spent some time together at the film festival. Zoe continued: "With a dear mutual friend in common I felt safe with Harvey. The night was young and so was I. After dinner our large group, which included my Italian modeling agent, a few rich douchebags, some decorative models, and Harvey's entourage, rolled out into the Cannes night. Black town cars and gleaming limos took us to various parties where we glittered and shone like everyone else. Harvey and his assistant, Ben Silverman, never left my side." While the conversation between Zoe and Harvey could've been misconstrued as flirtatious, Brock insists that she only felt "platonic energy" for him. Which makes it so much more troubling that Weinstein and his assistant seemingly manipulated it so that she was separated from her friends: "My group was ushered into one car and I was somehow separated from them and told to get into another car with Harvey and his two friends. Stupidly, I obliged. I was told we were all going to the same place. To this day I do not know if my Italian agent was in on the ruse. My instincts tell me he was." How awful. Things only got worse for Zoe as she relayed: "The energy shifted and I became very uncomfortable... And suddenly I was alone in a remote hotel suite with Harvey fucking Weinstein. My body went into high alert. I was drunk, young, miles from home, without cash to get a cab, and no cell phone... It was time to sober up, and fast." To make matters worse, Harvey moved quickly to proposition Zoe as he was naked and asking for massage almost as soon as they were alone. The model added: "Harvey left the room, but not for long. He re-emerged naked a couple of minutes later and asked if I would give him a massage. Panicking, in shock, I remember weighing up the options and wondering how much I needed to placate him to keep myself safe. He asked if I would like a massage instead, and for a second I thought this might be a way to give him an inch without him taking a mile. I told him I was uncomfortable and that I was angry that I had been tricked into this position. He pleaded with me to let him massage me and I let him put his hands on my shoulders while my mind raced." In an attempt to escape the filmmaker, Zoe locked herself in the bathroom as Harvey pleaded with her to come out. After reprimanding Harvey through a locked door, Brock eventually emerged and found Weinstein whimpering on the bed: "Harvey, contrite, promised to cover himself and leave me alone. I came out of the bathroom and found him sitting on his bed, wearing a bathrobe, crying. 'You don't like me because I'm fat.' He whimpered." Tsk, tsk. Supposedly, the assistant tried to apologize as Zoe has claimed he told her: "'I'm so sorry,' he said. 'I want you to know that of all the girls he does this to you are the one I really felt bad about. You deserve better.'" Ben Silverman, if you're reading this, SHAME ON YOU. Smh. According to Zoe, Weinstein let her stay at his suite at the Majestic Hotel. However, after a friend warned her that Harvey would be back in the morning, the brunette fled the hotel room at 6 a.m. In an attempt to downplay the scandalous nature of their encounter, Harvey sent Zoe red roses and booked a private movie screening for her at the festival. Both presents were unwanted. Be sure to read Zoe's full account for yourself HERE. [Image via Facebook/WENN.].....»»

Harvey Weinstein Slapped by a Dick (VIDEO)

You’d be hard pressed to find a guy who makes himself look like the bigger dick in a public exchange with Harvey Weinstein.

You’d be hard pressed to find a guy who makes himself look like the bigger dick in a public exchange with Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein being the dude that ruined the good times for everybody in Hollywood, both criminal and mere sinners. Also possibly a rapist, though it remains to be seen if he’ll ever see any charges filed against him or he’ll skate and for the rest of his life call himself “exonerated”. A guy known now as “Steve” spotted Weinstein in a restaurant in Scottsdale where Weinstein is currently learning how to better handle his sexual urges and went up to the movie mogul to ask for a photo together. Had this been O.J., you’d be in luck. I’ve done it. He’s extremely gracious, for a rage-filled murderer. Weinstein on the other hand is a bit guarded these days. On top of that, he’s an enormous asshole. Regardless, Steve’s the true dick in the story. As photos of Weinstein are currently being sold in tabloid markets, Weinstein declined. He is officially in rehab after all. He has a disease. Steve took offense to Weinstein dissing him on the selfie, and later on, when Weinstein left the restaurant, Steve went up to Weinstein and called him an asshole and a #MeToo offender. Also, he fay baby slapped Weinstein on his cheek for some odd reason. If you’re going to throw a punch, throw a punch. Otherwise a man’s hand should never head toward another man’s face. This isn’t acting. To complete the dick circle, Steve told his buddy to cellphone cam the experience so he could sell the encounter to TMZ. Video better than photo, by about ten grand. Good for you, Steve. Opportunistic turd. It’s easy to say Weinstein deserves all kinds of public beatdowns and harassments. It’s less easy to say he also deserves not to be assaulted in public based off of sexual harassment claims, likely true, and rape claims, as yet entirely unproven. Also, maybe by people who don’t live in glass houses. Like Steve, who’s bitch slapping Weinstein in order to sell tape to TMZ. Not cool, Steve. You made Weinstein look sympathetic.

Toronto Actress Launches Lawsuit Against Harvey Weinstein — As Well As DISNEY!

Looks like Harvey Weinstein has dragged Disney into his drama. This week, it was revealed that an anonymous Toronto-based actress is heading to court over two alleged sexual assaults she suffered at the hands of the indie movie mogul in 2000.

This week, it was revealed that an anonymous Toronto-based actress is heading to court over two alleged sexual assaults she suffered at the hands of the indie movie mogul in 2000. Disney has been listed as a co-defendant in this case as they owned Weinstein's Miramax at the time of the alleged incident. Related: Author Claims Dustin Hoffman Sexually Harassed Her According to the Toronto Sun, the unnamed accuser has taken the first step in launching a lawsuit as she has filed a statement of claim. It appears the woman is seeking $4 million in damages. Per the report, Jane Doe claims to have suffered from emotional distress over her unsavory interactions with the disgraced producer. The supposed victim was introduced to Harvey while working on an unspecified Miramax project. Reportedly, the (now ousted) Hollywood heavyweight told the woman she looked like a famous actress. After the initial introduction, Harvey's assistant, named Barbara Schneeweiss, arranged for a breakfast meeting between Weinstein and the woman so that they could "discuss her career and potential opportunities with Miramax." Hmmm, this already sounds familiar. The anonymous woman says she arrived at Harvey's hotel, only to learn that the sit down had been moved up to Weinstein's suite. The statement specified: "Once alone with Doe, Weinstein announced, ‘I like massages. What do you think about massages?' Doe said she thought massages were great, but that the subject was not an appropriate one for a business meeting." In response, Weinstein is said to have "chuckled" and then proceeded to give the woman a tour of his room. The visit took a darker turn when industry titan "overpowered her, pushed her onto the bed, and took his penis out of his pants." Weinstein then forced the woman's skirt up, pinned her wrists down, and forced oral sex onto her. Doe eventually broke free, however, when she ran into the assistant in the lobby, Schneeweiss merely "looked down." Unsurprisingly, Barbara (who is now an executive with The Weinstein Company) has also been named in the lawsuit. The actress reported the incident to her agent, but Harvey downplayed the situation by saying it was a misunderstanding. After Harvey left several voicemails, the actress agreed to meet with him -- but made sure to bring her agent and friend along with her. Related: Kevin Spacey Lured Teen Into His Bed By "Sobbing" Upon arriving at Harvey's hotel, Doe was somehow persuaded to meet with Weinstein alone. On the second meeting with the now 65-year-old, the statement relayed: "As soon as she did, he threw his weight onto her and tried to stick his tongue down her throat." Ugh. Jane worked with Weinstein on another occasion as she was offered a part in one of his films three years later. Jane says Harvey continued to "harass" her even though she never met up with him again. How awful. Disney has since responded to Doe's allegations with the following: "The Weinsteins operated and managed their business with virtual autonomy, and we were unaware of any complaints, lawsuits, or settlements. There is absolutely no legal basis for this claim against The Walt Disney Company and we will defend against it vigorously." Hmmmm, very inneresting. This is the second civil suit to accuse Weinstein of assault following The New York Times and the New Yorker's exposés about Harvey's sexual misconduct. We'll be sure to keep our eyes on this suit for any developments! [Image via Dave Bedrosian/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

Talk about a milkmaid. Amirite fellas. Harvey Weinstein’s former assistant Sandeep Rehal is getting in on the sue-y action by claiming that Weinstein committed a grab bag of sexual offenses towards her, which don’t necessarily read as illegal, but do read as hilarious. Anong other thing, Rehal claims that she recreated investigation scenes from Law and Order: SVU every time Weinstein blew his load on his couch. She would clean up his jizz stains and collect the condoms strewn about his office – with the second duty being not unlike a Hollywood insider easter egg hunt. Complete with the creamy Cadbury filling. But Rehal’s résumé goes far beyond Official Jizz Cleaner To The Stars, and she also claims to have been called lewd names by Weinstein, and to have been fondled in the car as he whispered sweet nothings into her ear like “What’s wrong Sandeep, is the tampon up too far today?” Okay now I see how he got the ladies. These allegations read like child’s play compared the information we already know about Weinstein, and his reps are already vehemently denying the information. To what avail I don’t know, since the jig’s pretty much up for Weinstein: Mr. Weinstein categorically denies these claims and his lawyers will respond in the appropriate legal forum with evidence proving they are untrue. The evidence will show these claims for money are in the realm of a science fiction movie. You know, the kind of science fiction movies in which the main character requires Caverject shots to get a boner before creaming his corn all over an ingénue’s wishful face. People will continue to throw allegations at disgraced Hollywood stars currently plummeting from the sky, and we can only hope that they’re all as colorful as o’ sticky hands Rehal’s.

Like so many others, Minka Kelly is now coming forward with her own disturbing story about a creepy encounter with serial sexual harasser Harvey Weinstein. On Friday, the 37-year-old revealed she too had been one of Harvey's targets at a "business" meeting set up by an assistant at a hotel. Related: Quentin Tarantino Finally Breaks His Silence On Weinstein's Scandal! Alongside a photo of a stitching that said, "Boys will be boys held accountable for their fucking actions," the actress recounted: "I met Harvey at an industry party. The following day, my agent said he wanted to see me for a general meeting. The location was set for his hotel room. I wasn't comfortable with going to his room & said so. The following day, we sat down with an assistant in the hotel restaurant. He bullshit me for 5 minutes re: movies he could put me in, then asked the assistant to excuse us. As she walked away, he said, 'I know you were feeling what I was feeling when we met the other night' and then regaled me with offers of a lavish life filled with trips around the world on private planes etc. IF I would be his girlfriend. Or, 'We could just keep this professional.' All I knew was not to offend this very powerful man and to get out of the situation as quickly as possible. I told him while flattered, I'd like to keep things professional. He said 'Fine. I trust you won't tell anyone about this.' I said 'Of course not. Thank you so much for taking the time to meet with me,' - the only way I could think to shut it down gracefully and excuse myself." After leaving the "meeting," Minka told her agent what happened: "I immediately told my agent what happened. We marveled at his audacity, reinforced my instinct not to offend him & laughed at how glad I was to get out of there. Neither of us were that surprised as this wasn't far off from the day-to-day bullshit of being an actress." The Friday Night Lights star concluded by apologizing for letting the filmmaker get away with this "gross" behavior: "I'm sorry for obliging his orders to be complicit in protecting his behavior, which he obviously knew was wrong or he wouldn't have asked me not to tell anyone in the first place. For making him feel ok about the gross things he was saying and that I felt my only route was to say I was flattered. For not insisting that my reps never allow anyone to take a meeting in a hotel room (with him or anyone else), because I honestly don't know what might have happened if I'd just showed up as originally scheduled." Like Minka, we're happy to hear so many people speaking up now: "I am appalled for all the women being told these occurrences are in any way their fault. No more Harvey Weinstein in Hollywood does not solve the problem but maybe the more voices sharing their stories and adding support to the countless women and men who have suffered through abuse of power, the less it will be tolerated."

That's why Zelda Perkins, former assistant to the disgraced movie movie mogul, decided to break her NDA that prevented her from speaking out about the "repulsive monster" sooner. In her first televised interview since accusing Weinstein of trying to rape their colleague 19 years ago, Perkins sat down with BBC's Newsnight to speak out on the allegations and call for a change in the laws that protect the rich and powerful by covering up sexual assault. Related: Meryl Streep Posters All Over Hollywood Claim 'She Knew' About Harvey In October, Perkins, who worked form Miramax Films in the UK in the ‘90s, publicly broke the Non-Disclosure Agreement she signed two decades ago and alleged that Weinstein assaulted a friend of hers at 1998's Venice Film Festival. After reporting the alleged incident to her boss back at the Miramax offices, the then-24-year-old was advised to get a lawyer. Once Perkins and the alleged victim sought legal counsel, they were told they "didn't have many options" since they had not gone to the police in Venice and lacked physical evidence. Feeling it would be impossible to take on Weinstein -- who Perkins admits was "an extremely exciting person to be around" -- by themselves, the two signed a gag order and resigned from the company. Perkins remembered thinking: "Ultimately, it would be two under-25 women's word against Harvey Weinstein, Miramax and essentially the Disney company." In signing the NDA, the personal assistant received $168,000 for her silence. But at the height of the #MeToo movement, Perkins is staying gagged no more!

Speaking on the crooked laws that protect powerful predators, she added: "You can't change the Harvey Weinsteins of the world — there are always going to be people that follow the darker side of their character — but if the rules and laws that we have to protect ourselves enable that, there's no point in having them." We may be a long way from that, especially with the lawmakers in office, but at least it's being seriously discussed. Watch Perkins' full interview (below): [Image via BBC/YouTube.].....»»

New Accuser Says Harvey Weinstein Forced Oral Sex On Her In 2006 — Harrowing Details Here

The former production assistant appeared with attorney Gloria Allred on Tuesday at a press conference in NYC where she revealed Weinstein allegedly forced oral sex on her at his house in SoHo while she was on her period. The brunette first met the disgraced mogul in 2004 at the London premiere of The Aviator and sexual advances began shortly after a re-introduction in 2006. Related: Kathy Griffin Puts Matt Damon & George Clooney On Blast Over Harvey Weinstein Scandal Mimi ran into him at the Cannes Film Festival that year, and asked if she could help out with his New York productions. She says he responded, "Why don't you come and see me at my hotel and we'll talk about it?" The former aspiring filmmaker then said she went to the hotel where his production company was setup in France and was taken to the room, without an assistant. The typical Harvey M.O. followed -- he apparently asked her to give him a massage, she said no and left emotionally distraught. Fast forward a few months ahead, and Harvey got her working on one of his NY sets. Following production wrap, Mimi sent him a professional thank you note, and this opened up the floodgates once more. A "completely charming" Weinstein met up with the victim in the Mercer Hotel lobby following her thoughtful email and was purely professional. Related: Harvey's Former Assistant Breaks NDA To Speak Out! A few days later, she recalls, he invited her to Paris, but she declined due tot he romantic nature of the request. He continued to call her and even showed up to her East Village apartment twice in one day, insisting she come to France. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK. She shared: "I finally said, 'I'm not coming to Paris with you and I hear you have a terrible reputation with women. That's when he backed off." Ick. Upon his return from Paris, Mimi accepted an invitation to his SoHo house in order to maintain the professional relationship she had hoped for. This is where things get graphic. Getting emotional during the retelling, Miz Haleyi detailed the alleged assault: "He wouldn't take no for an answer and backed me into a room which was not lit, but looked like a kid's bedroom with drawings on the walls. He held me down on the bed, I tried to get him off of me but it was impossible. He was extremely persistent and physically overpowering. He then orally forced himself on me while I was on my period. He even pulled my tampon out. I was in disbelief. I would not have wanted anyone to do that with me even if the person had been a romantic partner." She added: "I remember Harvey after rolling onto his back afterwards saying, 'Don't you think we are so much closer to each other now?' To which I replied, 'No.'" Disgusting. Related: Brit Marling Says Harvey Tried To Get Her To Shower With Him Miz Allred said Haleyi has not gone to police because of the statue of limitations, but her info "may be relevant information to have as Weinstein is investigated." The powerful attorney said: "They may or may not be interested in calling others as witnesses if he is charged with any crime or crimes, which he has not yet been." We applaud Mimi for sharing her story, and will keep you posted if anything more develops. Weinstein's camp has yet to comment on these allegations. [Image via Twitter.].....»»

LAPD Opens Harvey Weinstein Rape Investigation As TWO New Accusers Come Forward!

Harvey Weinstein may soon have nowhere to run. We already know the infamous Hollywood heavyweight is being investigated for sexual assault in the U.K. with its lack of statute of limitations. He may even have to answer for the 1997 accusations of Rose McGowan thanks to a legal loophole in Utah. But according to the latest reports, [...] Harvey Weinstein may soon have nowhere to run. We already know the infamous Hollywood heavyweight is being investigated for sexual assault in the U.K. with its lack of statute of limitations. He may even have to answer for the 1997 accusations of Rose McGowan thanks to a legal loophole in Utah. But according to the latest reports, he is now being investigated in his own city. Related: All Women Who Have Accused Harvey Weinstein So Far The LAPD confirmed an Italian model-actress (who wished to remain anonymous) has officially become the sixth woman to accuse Weinstein of rape or forcible sex acts. The now-38-year-old tells the L.A. Times she met Weinstein for only the second time at the Los Angeles Italia Film, Fashion and Art Fest in February 2013. After they spoke briefly at the fest, he showed up "without warning" at her hotel lobby asking to come up. She said no, but he got her room number and came up anyway, soon bullying his way in telling her he "just wanted to talk." But he didn't: "Once inside, he asked me questions about myself but soon became very aggressive and demanding and kept asking to see me naked. He grabbed me by the hair and forced me to do something I did not want to do. He then dragged me to the bathroom and forcibly raped me." She says she tried to stop him by showing him photos of her children, but it didn't do any good. In all, she says, the encounter lasted 45 minutes: "When he left, he acted like nothing happened. I barely knew this man. It was the most demeaning thing ever done to me by far. It sickens me still. … He made me feel like an object, like nothing with all his power... All these years I've been thinking why I didn't call the police immediately. I regret that I opened the door." Today also brings yet another new accusation from Russian TV host Katya Mtsitouridze (above, right), who recounted to The Hollywood Reporter an incident with Weinstein 13 years ago: "I first met Mr. Weinstein in the Regent hotel at the Berlin film festival [in 2003], where I was doing a television interview with George Clooney for Channel One. Harvey was co-producer of Clooney's directorial debut, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. After the interview, he came up to me saying that he liked my questions and would love to have lunch in his room — that he loved Russian culture, especially Chekhov, and that his grandparents were originally from Russia — and that we could have an interesting conversation. I was surprised and told him, rather ironically, that, of course, it would be an honor, but I was afraid my boyfriend would not be happy about our cultural tete-a-tete, but if he wished to invite him, there would be no problem." Harvey didn't like that, says Katya, so instead he gave her his number and over the next few months whenever their paths wold cross at junkets, he would remind her to call him. But it was at the Venice Film Festival in 2004 that Katya says she got the full Weinstein. Related: France's Got Talent Judge Accused Of Sexual Misconduct Against NINE Women, Including A 14-Year-Old! He invited her after a screening of Finding Neverland to discuss an idea he had for modern Russian writers. Katya thought it was legit since he was a publisher as well -- but again she refused to meet with him alone in his room, instead telling him to meet her at the Excelsior hotel cafe, a public place full of industry professionals. When she got there, Harvey's assistant showed up instead saying he wasn't feeling well, so could she meet him upstairs. She was hesitant but "the assistant said that he would be joining us, so I went up." That's when the assistant "instantly disappeared," and Katya met the real Harvey: "I was frozen into immobility like a statue, because a well-known producer with whom I've come to discuss modern Russian writers, was in a bathrobe." Ugh. He apparently told her his masseuse was late but that they could have fun while he waited. She also remembers him saying: "'You will love it. I'm a guru in this matter. You never met a man like me.'" Though she doesn't know if he meant massage or not. She says she wondered if the press junket down the hall would hear her screams when she was saved "like a scene from a bad movie" when a waiter returned to the room with a bucket of champagne. She used the opportunity and made a swift exit. She saw Harvey again around a decade later at Cannes, when the two were introduced by a mutual acquaintance who didn't know they had met. She says she was nervous but recalls: "But Harvey, acting as if nothing had happened, kissed my hand and said quietly so that only I could hear: 'Don't even think about saying anything. Forget all about it. Be a smart girl.'" She never did say anything. But she is now. And so are a lot more women. [Image via Instagram/WENN.].....»»

Paris Hilton Sheds Tears Testifying Against Her Hacker In Court: "I Have Been Violated So Many Times In My Life"

Paris Hilton will never be the same after being the victim of a hacker. The socialite couldn't stop herself from crying in court as she testified against Paystar Bkhchadzhyan — the woman who was sentenced to 57 months in prison to bank fraud conspiracy on Monday for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars from Paris' bank accounts [...] Paris Hilton will never be the same after being the victim of a hacker. The socialite couldn't stop herself from crying in court as she testified against Paystar Bkhchadzhyan -- the woman who was sentenced to 57 months in prison to bank fraud conspiracy on Monday for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars from Paris' bank accounts and nude photos from her iCloud account. Related: Paris Says Her Sex Tape Leak Was 'Like Being Raped' Paris made it clear in court that she has been deeply affected by the crime; not only will she never store nudes on her iCloud account again, she's now scared to be home alone! She said in front of the judge: "This has impacted me in so many ways. I am constantly looking over my shoulder and even scared to walk into my home alone fearful that this woman or her boyfriend or other dangerous friends are inside there waiting to hurt me or steal from me." As we reported, Bkhchadzhyan allegedly hacked into Paris' bank accounts, used her credit cards, and even impersonated the heiress, emailing Paris' assistant to wire over $80,000 to the hacker's personal account. After the ruling was made, the Simple Life star was seen outside the courthouse speaking with reporters, looking pleased that justice had been served. Good for her! Read her full testimony, obtained by The Blast, below: "Thank you your honor. It is very important for me to stand here today and pursue legal action on behalf of myself, my family and anyone who has been targeted with hacking. This was stealing and an invasion of my privacy. Public figure or not, no one should be a target for this crime. I hope that by being here today it brings awareness that this won't be tolerated and moving forward it doesn't continue to happen to me or anyone else. "When I first found out that my personal emails, iCloud, credit cards and identity had been stolen and taken over by some stranger I felt so upset, hurt and violated. The defendant not only hacked into my accounts and made credit cards with my name on them but somehow found a way to hack into the email accounts of my employees, my friends and my family members such as my father and sister. The defendant started contacting me personally thru text after she impersonated me to a phone company and took over my cell phones where she actually had set it up so that she had her own phones that were directly linked to mine receiving all of my personal texts, emails, whatsapp conversations, private photos and videos. "The defendant was impersonating to be someone else and she lied to me, tried to con, scare and extort me for money saying that these other women had broken into my iCloud and stolen private photos and messages and threatening me that if I did not pay for my pictures and my private information that it would be sold to the media to be leaked to public. I was told that they were already in talks with reporters and media companies interested. I was so upset, distraught and terrified that I could hardly sleep that entire week constantly being contacted by this woman who had targeted me and my life. It was so scary, upsetting, disturbing, shocking, and stressful to be threatened and extorted in such a way. "It even got scarier when the front gate security guards in the gated community where I live started getting very heated calls from a woman they said was very rude impersonating me and demanding that her guests only be let into the gates of my private community but also to be let into my house. During this time I was in Switzerland terrified that these strangers were going to break into my home and steal everything. "When she was not allowed past the security gate or into my home she started writing extremely rude messages to my assistant Angie Enos again impersonating and pretending to be me and demanding that Angie wire $50k into her account. At this point my assistant knows that I would never speak to her in such a rude way so she contacted me over the phone to ask if I had asked for the wire and I said no. Then because this woman could not get the wire from my assistant she targeted my parents and wrote my mother very rude messages demanding that she take out $50k in cash to be sent to her from my mothers account. My mom then contacted me to ask if it was me because she knew that I would never be asking for money from her. The defendant then again using my private email account started writing several of my friends asking them to send private photos of us together and other personal questions all the while my friends are thinking it is me asking since this is all being written from my personal email account. It was never ending. This was so stressful. "Then we discovered from the Roosevelt Hotel that the defendant impersonated me once again and booked the penthouse suite at the hotel to throw a New Year's Eve party ordering tens of thousands of dollars of champagne on my credit card. Also being extremely rude to the staff at the hotel. Also using my credit card to go buy watches and other expensive items. The defendant also used my identity and credit card information at the Mr. C Hotel in Beverly Hills spending on my credit card for room and personal entertainment. Now it has made me very scared, terrified and traumatized. This has impacted me in so many ways. I am constantly looking over my shoulder and even scared to walk into my home alone fearful that this woman or her boyfriend or other dangerous friends are inside there waiting to hurt me or steal from me. "This woman targeted me in such a way that I will never forget or get over it. I feel so incredibly violated. She was trying to get all my user names and passwords for every single one of my email and bank accounts. She took over my life and identity. She tried to shake me up for money. It was all so unbelievable and crazy that it truly seemed like something out of a movie. I have a very busy schedule and was supposed to be out of town today but I rescheduled my trip just to be here because I wanted you, your honor, to know and understand just how much this truly affected me and what a serious crime this is. "I have been violated so many times in my life and I am sick and tired of just brushing it under the rug and not standing up for myself. I want the defendant and any other hackers out their who are planning to target me or anyone else that this is wrong, highly illegal and a serious crime and it will not be tolerated and if they attempt again then they will be punished for their despicable actions. No one should ever have to go through this or made to feel this way and I hope by being here today it will help make a difference and make people think twice before they attempt or try to do such deplorable things to another person and hopefully put a stop to this. Thank you, your honor." [Image via Ivan Nikolov/WENN.].....»»

Ronan Farrow Says Even MORE Harvey Weinstein Stories Are About To Come Out While Speaking On His Latest Bombshell Exposé

We've only hit the tip of the Harvey Weinstein iceberg, according to Ronan Farrow.

The investigative journalist stopped by Good Morning America on Tuesday to discuss his latest exposé on the disgraced movie mogul, making it clear that the revelations about him are far from over. Since Farrow's initial New Yorker report, Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by over 70 women -- with a more recent story shedding light on just how far the former Miramax head went to silence his alleged victims. Related: Kevin Spacey's Brother Confidently Calls The Actor 'A Monster' Farrow's contribution to the New Yorker on Monday detailed how the mega-producer hired two intelligence companies to help discredit and intimidate accusers such as Rose McGowan and Asia Argento. Speaking to GMA's George Stephanopoulos, Michael Strahan, and Robin Roberts about the "seismic shift" his bombshell report triggered, Mia Farrow's son said there are still many Weinstein stories that need to be uncovered. He explained: "We are getting a lot coming in… Some of it [is] very, very troubling and some of it, I think, [is] checking out. It is not over and look, that is down to the bravery of women that are still coming forward, and men that are coming forward as victims. This is, as you say, a movement." While Weinstein's rep shut down the accusations as nothing but "fiction," Farrow stands behind the women in his story, who he says were intimidated and manipulated into remaining silent for years: "There are criminal offenses — intimidation, menacing — that are linked to the way the women described their experience of this. They were afraid for their physical safety because this all emanated from a guy who had attacked them in the past." Quoting one of the investigators who said Weinstein was able to "intimidate" the New York Times into not breaking a story of his alleged assault years ago, Ronan added: "The body of reporting makes clear that the women have another story, the actual operatives involved in these operations have another story and the all of his lawyers have another story." And based on what he's teasing, there are still plenty more bombshell Weinstein stories that are about to be told. (We wonder if Ronan has been in talks with Uma Thurman?)

As the accusations against Harvey Weinstein continue to surface, an actress has now filed a federal lawsuit against the disgraced filmmaker for allegedly violating sex trafficking laws by luring her to a hotel room in Cannes, where she says he assaulted her. Kadian Noble says Weinstein invited her to his room at the Le Majestic Hotel in February of 2014 under the pretense of casting her for a movie. Related: Harvey & The Weinstein Co. Facing Civil Suit From 2000 Assault During the incident, Noble, whom U.K. readers may remember as a Britain's Next Top Model contestant in 2010, claims Weinstein started massaging her before groping her breasts and buttocks against her will. The lawsuit then alleges Weinstein trapped her in the bathroom and forced her to perform a hand job on him until he ejaculated on the floor. Weinstein reportedly told her at the time: "Everything will be taken care of for you if you relax." The suit also names Bob Weinstein and The Weinstein Co. as defendants. In response, a spokesperson for the movie mogul released a general statement, saying: "Mr. Weinstein denies allegations of non-consensual sex. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances." We'll keep you posted.` [Image via HRC/WENN.].....»»
