The revelations about Harvey Weinstein’s Hollywood behavior keep dripping in like a broken faucet.
The latest one involves Ms. Lauren Sivan, a local TV anchor who said Mr. Weinstein had invited her for dinner to ‘discuss her future’ in 2007. He later took her to a nearby club he owned that evening and when the club closed, invited her for a tour of the premises. She asked a friend to check on her in ten minutes if she didn’t come back up.
Ms. Sivan was then cornered in the kitchen by Mr. Weinstein and refused his advances. Upon seeing this, the Hollywood mogul started to unzip his pants and masturbate in front of her. Ms. Sivan explained that Mr. Weinstein ejaculated into a nearby potted plant and then proceeded to zip up his pants and they walked back into the kitchen.
Mr. Weinstein called her the next morning, saying that he “had a great time last night.” Because of his power in Hollywood, Ms. Sivan never came forward with the story till yesterday.
More salacious stories were leaked about Mr. Weinstein’s sexual predator behavior earlier this week.
Actress Ashley Judd, who was filming blockbuster ‘Kiss the girls’ at the time, was asked up to his room for what she thought was a business breakfast meeting. Mr. Weinstein appeared in a bathrobe and asked if she could watch him shower or give him a massage.
Actress Rose McGowan, from TV show Charmed, reached a $100,000 out of court settlement with Mr. Weinstein for an ‘episode’ in a hotel room during the Sundance film festival in 1997. Miss McGowan was 23 at the time.
Italian model Ambra Battilana was invited to Mr. Weinstein’s Tribeca office in March 2015. She called the police three hours later, telling them that he had grabbed her breasts and had asked ‘if they were real’ and then put his hands up her skirt.
The New York Times reports that this behavior went on for several decades and that out of court settlements were reached with 8 women.
Most of Hollywood has remained silent on the bombshell reporting so far.
