A growing number of woman have come forward accusing Hollywood big shot Harvey Weinstein of various forms of sexual harassment. The latest accusation to emerge comes from Cara Delevingne who made a post on Instagram on Wednesday describing how Weinstein tried to force her into a threesome.

It was a very odd and uncomfortable call….i answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that If I was gay or decided to be with a woman especially in public that I&#39;d never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood. A year or two later, I went to a meeting with him in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film. The director left the meeting and Harvey asked me to stay and chat with him. As soon as we were alone he began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature. He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn&#39;t and wouldn&#39;t be for a bit and I should go to his room. At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn&#39;t want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction. I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing….i thought it would make the situation better….more professional….like an audition….i was so nervous. After singing I said again that I had to leave. He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room. I still got the part for the film and always thought that he gave it to me because of what happened. Since then I felt awful that I did the movie. I felt like I didn&#39;t deserve the part. I was so hesitant about speaking out….I didn&#39;t want to hurt his family. I felt guilty as if I did something wrong. I was also terrified that this sort of thing had happened to so many women I know but no one had said anything because of fear.</a></p> <p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;">A post shared by Cara Delevingne (@caradelevingne) on <time style=" font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;" datetime="2017-10-11T17:39:37+00:00">Oct 11, 2017 at 10:39am PDT</time></p></div></blockquote> <script async defer src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js"></script>

In her Instagram post, Delevingne shared how Weinstein made homophobic comments towards her relationships with women and even tried to force her to have sex with himself and another woman. The actress also cited several other instances where he harassed her. Delevingne wrote in her post,

"He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn’t and wouldn’t be for a bit and I should go to his room. At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn’t want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction."

Delevingne is far from the only woman to come out with direct experiences of sexual harassment with the former executive. Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, Lea Seydoux, Asia Argento, Mira Sorvino, Rosanna Arquette and much more have also reported similar experiences with the man.

Late Wednesday night, the FBI announced they opened an investigation into the Hollywood mogul after the claims of sexual assault that have been levied against the man by several prominent women. The Trump administration's Attorney General Jeff Sessions instructed the federal bureau to investigate the growing number of serious allegations against Weinstein.

At this point no criminal charges have been filed but it is likely that will change in the very near future.
