Former Brazilian model Juliana De Paula has opened up about her own experiences with disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein, including how he allegedly groped her and then chased her round his apartment naked.
She recalls the time when she and three other models were invited back to his loft, and once they were in the elevator, he allegedly began “groping” them and “forcing” them to kiss one another.
“Like putting both heads together,” De Paula said of the incident.
“He was moving toward me. I got scared, and I was afraid,” she added, before saying she broke a wine glass to defend herself and said to him:
“You let me out of here right now, or this is going to have serious consequences.”
Another model, Zoë Brock, spoke about locking herself in the bathroom after he stripped down and demanded a massage from her while he was naked…
“I hope that from this moment on, young girls, from every country, start to value themselves as more than the objects the industry has always treated them as,” Zoë Brock said.
More than 10 models, including Cara Delevingne, have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct.
Although he has apologised for some of his previous actions, Harvey Weinstein has still denied all of the non-consensual sex allegations.
