Harvey Weinstein reportedly sued by actress who accused him of rape

A FEBRUARY 22 2017 FILE

In a statement, Weinstein's representatives denied the allegations and claimed he was never violent with any of them.

The woman says she never received a job offer for Marco Polo - which was canceled after two seasons - or for any other Weinstein-related project.

In a manner now sickenly familiar from past allegation, Weinstein arranged a meeting at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills and masturbated in front of the woman, despite her negative response to the situation. Over the next few years, he invited her to several events, the lawsuit states.

Months later, Doe says, Weinstein called her again - saying he wanted her to come "celebrate her upcoming role" in the show.

Furthermore, Harvey can't speak to anonymous allegations but denies all of them outright, and any relationships he's had have been consensual. "Despite her telling Weinstein 'no, ' Weinstein proceeded to grab her wrist with one hand while using the other to masturbate in front of her until completion". When the woman told him to stop, "Weinstein then used his massive weight and strength to force himself on her, pushing his penis inside of her vagina with out a condom", the complaint adds.

Zoetis' (NYSE:ZTS) "Hold" Rating Reaffirmed at BMO Capital Markets
Calculated by dividing Zoetis Inc.'s annual earnings by its total assets, investors will note a return on assets of 11.60%. The company reported $0.65 earnings per share for the quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates of $0.63 by $0.02.

Weinstein reportedly contacted the woman in 2016, giving her the impression she had landed the role in Marco Polo.

While in a hotel room, the woman claims Weinstein excused himself and returned in nothing but a bathrobe. He allegedly ignored her and "forcefully threw her" on the bed, pulled down her jeans and "started to orally copulate her". The actress says she told Weinstein that "she did not want to do anything sexual with him". "Plaintiff finally broke free from his grasp and immediately left the bedroom and suite".

With thousands of women embracing the "Me Too" movement to own their histories of sexual harassment and abuse, and those issues swirling at high volume in the culture overall, parents are reaching for teachable moments in the post-Weinstein world. Paz de la Huerta andRose McGowan recently accused Weinstein of rape.

Meanwhile, police in the United Kingdom have widened their investigation into Weinstein to include allegations of sexual assault by seven women.
