Harvey Weinstein sued by unnamed actress for alleged sexual battery, assault, gender violence, and rape

Another actress – who has currently chosen to remain anonymous – has sued disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein, as well as his former production company, for a series of sexual offences.

The actress, who wants to be referred to as Jane Doe, is represented by Gloria Allred, and is suing both Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Company for sexual battery, gender violence, battery, assault, negligence, negligent supervision and injunctive relief.

According to E! News, she has accused Weinstein of masturbating in front of her in 2015, and then raping her in 2016.

Court documents obtained just yesterday reveal that she met Weinstein back in 2011 and kept in contact with him every few months, as she believed he would help her further her acting career.

“In March 2015, Plaintiff met Weinstein at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills, California to discuss a prospective acting job on a television show called Marco Polo as well as acting in two to three other projects,” the court documents state.

“At some point, Weinstein said he wanted to masturbate in front of her. Plaintiff told Weinstein that she did not want him to masturbate in front of her. Weinstein told her that he would not touch her, but ‘only’ wanted her to watch him.

“Despite her telling Weinstein ‘no,’ Weinstein proceeded to grip her wrist with one hand while using the other to masturbate in front of her until completion.”

The court documents then detail an even more devastating event that happened a year later…

“In early spring of 2016, Weinstein contacted plaintiff again to meet with him at The Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills to celebrate her upcoming role in Marco Polo giving her the impression that she had been chosen for the part. Plaintiff agreed.

“Before plaintiff could leave, Weinstein grabbed her and pulled her into the bedroom. Plaintiff told Weinstein that she did not want to do anything sexual with him.”

“Weinstein forcefully threw Plaintiff onto the bed. He pulled down her jeans and started to orally copulate her. Plaintiff pushed Weinstein’s head off of her and told him, ‘Stop!’

“Weinstein then used his massive weight and strength to force himself on her, pushing his penis inside of her vagina without a condom. After he withdrew, he gripped her with one hand while using his other hand to masturbate.

“Plaintiff finally broke free from his grasp and immediately left the bedroom and suite.”

The actress didn’t get the part in Marco Polo.

A spokesperson for Harvey Weinstein issued a new statement yesterday, referencing the most recent allegations…

“Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein,” the statement reads.

“Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.

Mr. Weinstein obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual.”
