An unnamed actress is reportedly suing Harvey Weinstein after she claims he masturbated in front of her and raped her.

Furthermore, Harvey can't speak to anonymous allegations but denies all of them outright, and any relationships he's had have been consensual.

"The companies' executives, officers, directors, managing agents and employees had actual knowledge of Weinstein's repeated acts of sexual misconduct with women", the suit alleged. That 2016 meeting turned into a sexual assault that saw Weinstein penetrating the woman forcefully and against her will. From there, he invited her to awards show parties and maintained regular communication over the next few years.

The plaintiff, who is identified as Jane Doe in the suit, said she was introduced to the now-disgraced film producer in 2011, when he offered to assist with her acting career. Harvey allegedly grabbed her wrists and masturbated. The documents do not specify where the incident took place within the hotel.

While in a hotel room, the woman claims Weinstein excused himself and returned in nothing but a bathrobe.

The next incident happened several months later at the same hotel, according to the lawsuit. She said she wasn't OK with that.

She goes on to say in 2016 she met him again at the Montage to "celebrate her upcoming role in "Marco Polo". He pulled down her jeans and started to orally copulate her".


The actress said she told him to stop, but due to his strength and weight, he was able to overpower her and force himself on the woman.

She notes he did not use a condom. She allegedly "swore at him and hung up the phone".

The New York Police Department is now gathering evidence against Weinstein after detectives interviewed actress Paz de la Huerta, who claims Weinstein raped her twice in 2010.

The woman, who says she never got the role on Marco Polo, is also suing The Weinstein Company, claiming the company was aware of that the producer had a pattern of using potential job opportunities to lure actresses into sex, and using violence to get his way.

Because the Weinstein Co knew of the movie producer's misconduct toward women, it was liable for the pain he inflicted, according to the lawsuit, which is seeking undisclosed damages.

Since The New York Times published its bombshell exposé on October 5, more than 70 women have gone public with accusations of sexual harassment, sexual assault or rape against Weinstein. Police in New York, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and London have said they are investigating allegations of sexual assault or rape by Weinstein.
