Be that as it may, the allegation leveled against Weinstein this evening by a previous generation partner named Mimi Haleyi appears to be worth specifying in light of the fact that it’s quite recently so horrifying.
An ex-representative of the Weinstein Co., Haleyi sat nearby lawyer Gloria Allred in New York City on Tuesday and told the press that she met Weinstein at the 2004 debut of The Aviator.
After two years, at the Cannes Film Festival, Weinstein welcomed Haleyi to his lodging space to as far as anyone knows talk about business.
Following “a couple of minutes of ordinary discussion,” he endeavored to persuade Haleyi to give him a back rub, she clarified.
In any case, she declined and left the room.
“At that point I was crying, as I felt totally embarrassed and idiotic for having been amped up for meeting with him,” Haleyi said.
Following this episode, Weinstein really solicited Haleyi to take a shot at one from his network shows. After this occupations finished, he requesting that her go to Paris with him.
This appeared like a “sentimental” demand, Haleyi said today, so she turned it down.
Rankled that she would state no to him (twice, no less), Weinstein supposedly appeared to Haleyi’s loft in New York and “physically constrained himself in through the entryway, begging me to come to Paris,” she said.
Yet, she didn’t give in.
After Weinstein came back from France, Haleyi said she needed to “keep up a decent relationship” with the maker, so she consented to meet him at his Manhattan flat.
They sat in front of the TV for a couple of minutes, yet soon “he was all finished me, making lewd gestures,” she stated, including:
“I stated, ‘I am on my period. It is highly unlikely this will happen. If it’s not too much trouble stop.’ He wouldn’t take no for an answer.”
Weinstein is then blamed for support Haleyi into what resembled a youngster’s room.
“He held me on the bed, I attempted to get him off me yet … he was to a great degree industrious and physically overwhelming,” she said.
“He orally constrained himself on me while I was on my period. He even hauled my tampon out. I was embarrassed. I was in dismay and disturbed.”
After the claimed strike, Haleyi said Weinstein moved over on his back and asked: “Don’t you feel like we’re so considerably nearer now?”
No, she answered.
Prior this month, a New York Times article nitty gritty eight separate settlements Weinstein had touched base at with ladies who blamed him for sexual offense.
Since this article turned into a web sensation, endless others in Hollywood have shared their Harvey Weinstein stories.
What’s more, many sound shockingly like this one, with ladies saying Weinstein would welcome them to his lodging room under the pretense of business… just to constrain himself on them in different ways.
A representative for Weinstein has already said that “any affirmations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied” by him.
As of this written work, 54 ladies have blamed Weinstein for rape or badgering.
