Actress Files Lawsuit Against Harvey Weinstein's Company For Covering Up His Behaviour

Harvey Weinstein wouldn't take no for an answer when a NY production assistant rejected his sexual advances and told him she was menstruating, she said Tuesday.

Mimi Haleyi claims that she was visiting Weinstein at his New York City loft back in 2006 when the 65-year-old executive forced himself on her. "He held me down on the bed". I tried to get away, I tried to get him off of me and kept asking him to stop but it was impossible. He was extremely persistent and physically overpowering. "At the time, I personally did not have the idea to even report anything because I didn't think anyone would care", she said. "I was mortified", Haleyi said, beginning to weep as the cameras rolled.

"I would not have wanted anyone to do that to me even if that person had been my romantic partner", she said. Haleyi said afterwards he rolled over and asked her, "Don't you feel we're so much closer to each other now?"

A spokeswoman for Weinstein said that "allegations of nonconsensual sex are unequivocally denied".

Asked if NYPD officials have reached out already to request a sit-down, Allred declined to answer. "With respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual". A few days later, at his office, they spoke again, and he offered her a ride home, along with his assistant. Then, she said, he masturbated in front of her. The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network says it has received 21 percent more calls than usual in a surge the organization's vice president of communications attributes to the bravery of Weinstein's accusers.

At the press conference, Huett said she was "frozen" in the moment and "caught off guard". The abuse she describes is especially disturbing.

Haleyi said she first met Weinstein at the London premiere of The Aviator in 2004.

Trump finds new ways to condemn reporting he doesn't like
As a businessman and candidate, Trump frequently threatened to sue news organizations over unflattering coverage. Trump denied the story and suggested the Senate Intelligence Committee investigate "the fake news networks".

In her lawsuit, Huett had alleged that Weinstein lured her to a room at the Peninsula hotel in Beverly Hills in November 2010 under the guise of helping her procure future TV and film roles.

But Weinstein got in touch afterward and offered her a job on one of his TV productions in NY.

When Weinstein subsequently invited her to join him on a trip to Paris, she declined, she said.

"I finally said, 'I'm not coming to Paris with you, and I hear you have a bad reputation with women.' That's when he backed off". "I didn't think at that time that enough people were sharing their stories".

She said she told several friends about this story.

Her story is strikingly similar to those of more than 50 women who have claimed they were sexually harassed or assaulted by the disgraced film producer.
