The lawsuit, filed in NY, goes on to say that despite telling him to stop, he "forcibly pulled" her into the bathroom where he stripped and groped her, forcing her to perform sexual acts. Furthermore, the suit claims TWC employees used a code word for young women who participated in sex acts in exchange for a movie role.

But that was until Kadian Noble, an aspiring British actress, chose to sue both Harvey and his brother Bob, and the Weinstein Company under federal sex trafficking laws, in order to bring the movie mogul to the justice that his actions over the years, has deserved. A representative for Harvey Weinstein said that "any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

The actress is seeking unspecified damages, accusing Weinstein of being able "to force or coerce" her into sexual activity by promising to wield influence in the film industry - and that it was a violation of sex trafficking statute. According to the complaint, one producer told Kadian on the phone while she was in a hotel with Weinstein that she needed to be a "good girl and do whatever" Weinstein wanted for future work.

"I still can hear the rattle from his belt, like him undoing his belt while he had grip of me", Noble recalled, revealing that she was forced into a hotel bathroom, where Weinstein sexually assaulted her.

Noble is alleging that Harvey invited her to his hotel room at Le Majestic Hotel in Cannes in February 2014 under the guise of speaking with her about an acting role he promised she would receive.

"He informed her that she needed to relax, and if she did, his people would have all of her details and would "take care of everything" for her", the suit reads.

White House: President Trump won't campaign for Roy Moore
Trump has declined to follow the path of other mainstream Republican leaders, who have called on Moore to step aside. The Peoria Republican was asked about Moore during his stop at last week's McLean County Republican Party breakfast.

Last week, actress Uma Thurman suggested she too had been a victim of sexual harassment, writing on her Instagram page that Weinstein didn't "deserve a bullet".

'Despite such knowledge, Bob Weinstein, as an executive of TWC, continued to pay for and facilitate these foreign trips for Harvey Weinstein'.

Weinstein, who been accused of sexual misconduct by several women, was removed from the members listing on the organisation's website on Friday (24Nov17) and on Monday (27Nov17), Harvey released a statement to Deadline confirming he is no longer a part of the DGA.

"Essentially under the statute, if a USA citizen goes to another country and uses force to entice a person to engage in a commercial sex act, they violate this law", Noble's told NBC News.

The Weinstein Company did not reply to a request for comment from HuffPost.
