Weinstein has "unequivocally denied" allegations of non-consensual sex.
The alleged victim was an unnamed Italian model-actress who said Weinstein "forcibly raped" her at the Mr. C Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles after the 8th annual Los Angeles Italia Film, Fashion and Art Fest in February of 2013, according to the Los Angeles Times. A female producer friend cautioned her to "keep Harvey in your corner".
A former television and stage actress says Harvey Weinstein ruined her career ambition after he exposed himself to her during a meeting in 1989.
At his home later that day, Weinstein led her into his bedroom and said he wanted to give Nyong'o a massage, she wrote. "He was one of the first people I met in the industry, and he told me, 'This is the way it is.' And wherever I looked, everyone seemed to be bracing themselves and dealing with him, unchallenged". As the Times wrote, "the investigation that unfolded over the next two weeks was perhaps the biggest threat ever faced" by Weinstein, but it came to nothing: Manhattan district attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. declined to press charges and Weinstein paid Battilana for her silence.
The Kenyan-Mexican actress, now 34, said she felt pressured into giving him a massage after he offered her one.
She said she thought it would buy her time to get out of the situation, but then she said the producer said he wanted to take off his trousers. They ordered drinks and starters, but before the appetizers arrived he suggested they take the rest of their meal to his room.
"Part of our drama school curriculum at Yale included body work, using massage techniques on one another to understand the connection between body, mind and emotion, and so I felt I could rationalize giving him one and keep a semblance of professionalism in spite of the weird circumstance".
Weinstein and Tarantino have worked closely for decades since the producer distributed "Reservoir Dogs", in 1992.
Priyanka, known in the United States for "Quantico", added: "So what if I'm in heels?".
"There is going to be - righteously, I think - a pause in the discussion for the women to be heard, meaning that perhaps all men, myself included, should pipe down and not try to explain it, and not try to comment on it, certainly not try to defend it or even try to prosecute it".
He continued: "If Hollywood and the entertainment industry was the only place where sexual harassment occurred, I would say yes (I am complicit in that), but you and I know that that's not the case; it's built into the rules of society". Upon her return to Twitter, Rose McGowan publicly named Weinstein as her rapist for the first time last week. "I did not know that anybody wanted things to change". "You have no idea what you are passing up", he said. Mollified by his behavior on that occasion, Nyong'o met Weinstein again in 2011 at his favorite stomping grounds-a hotel. "I knew he did a couple of these things".
"Though we may have endured powerlessness at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, by speaking up, speaking out and speaking together, we regain that power", Nyong'o wrote.
