Now, a former reporter for News 12 says that Weinstein essentially trapped her in a deserted NYC restaurant and masturbated in front of her.
Speaking to the New York Times a day prior to her interview with Stephanopoulos, Bloom had said: "The allegations if true would constitute sexual harassment".
Weinstein's brother, Bob, and COO David Glasser will lead the company during Harvey Weinstein's absence. While the publicist acknowledged receiving the questions, multiple attempts to get a response were unsuccessful.
Weinstein has denied "many of the accusations as patently false" through attorney Lisa Bloom.
Sivan told the Post on Friday that several attendees, including Sivan and Weinstein, later rode to a Cuban-themed club called Cafe Socialista, which was also owned by Cipriani owner Giuseppe Cipriani. Sivan noted to HuffPost that Weinstein's auto was "stocked full of cases of Diet Coke", which she said she found to be odd.
"I have a three-book deal with Weinstein Books, through Hachette", Brzezinski wrote on Saturday. Sivan's friend spoke to HuffPost on the condition of anonymity because she wasn't authorized by her employer to speak to members of the press about any topic. Weistein reportedly insisted that Sivan join him on a tour of Cafe Socialista, the club's restaurant. Sivan said she reluctantly agreed and they went downstairs to the restaurant.
According to the Post, Sivan told a friend to come find her if she wasn't back within 10 minutes.
BSF camp near Srinagar attacked, two militants, one jawan killed
In August, militants attacked a police base in the southern Kashmir town of Pulwama, killing eight security personnel. Residents in the neighbourhood said they heard dozens of blasts and intermittent gunfire was still ongoing.
Meanwhile, organizers of the Outfest UCLA Legacy Project's annual Legacy Awards - the LGBTQ group's gala fundraiser honoring entertainment industry figures who "made a profound and lasting impact on LGBT storytelling and the LGBT community" - announced The Weinstein Company would no longer be honored at the October 22 ceremony.
He allegedly took Sivan into the kitchen, dismissed two of his staffers from the room, and tried to kiss her. "While I would not represent Mr. Weinstein, I would consider representing anyone who accused Mr. Weinstein of sexual harassment, even if it meant that my daughter was the opposing counsel", she said.
Ms. Sivan recalled the alleged encounter after The New York Times published a bombshell report Thursday revealing that Mr. Weinstein, the head of The Weinstein Company and Miramax film studios, reached at least eight settlements with women dating back almost three decades in response to similar previously unpublicized allegations of sexual harassment and other misconduct, including several leading actresses.
Bloom's work for Weinstein had drawn criticism in some quarters since her firm usually defends women in such cases.
Weinstein then proceeded to expose himself to Sivan and began to masturbate.
The former TV journalist said she remained silent over the years out of fear of retaliation due to Weinstein's clout in the media industry.
