Just before Sivan left, the friend told her that if she wasn't back in 10 minutes, she would come to check on her.
Sivan's accusations come just one day after The New York Times published a bombshell story detailing Weinstein's decades long pattern of allegedly harassing women. "However, Mr. Weinstein denies many of them and was not given a fair opportunity to present evidence and witnesses on his side". As they reached the kitchen area, Weinstein saw a few staffers working in the kitchen.
She described the incident to the Huffington Post. Now, a former reporter for News 12 says that Weinstein essentially trapped her in a deserted NYC restaurant and masturbated in front of her.
She wrote in it: "Based on my years in the industry and unfortunately, my own personal experience with Harvey Weinstein, I can tell you that I believe every single word that was written in the extremely disturbing, but not all that shocking, New York Times piece published yesterday". The group then made their way to a Cuban-theme club and restaurant when Weinstein offered to take her on a private tour of the club's then-closed kitchen.
Paramount Nabs The Movie Rights To 'Sonic The Hedgehog'
Fowler was the director of the 2005 Academy Award-nominated animated short film " Gopher Broke ", which was produced by Miller. Sony Pictures previously had the rights to the video game character, but now Sonic has landed with Paramount Pictures.
A friend of Sivan's who was interviewed for the article and who was there at Socialista on the night told HuffPo that she'd said to Sivan that if she didn't come back from her trip with Weinstein in 10 minutes, she'd come looking for her.
"Sivan said she was deeply shocked by Weinstein's behavior and was frozen and didn't know what to do or say", reports HuffPo. He suddenly exposed himself and began masturbating in front of her, and continued doing so until he ejaculated into a potted plant in the hall, she added.
Winstein reportedly called Sivan the next day to say he "had a great time last night" and to try to arrange a date, but Sivan ended the conversation quickly by reminding the Hollywood producer that she had a boyfriend.
The reporter's friend who was supposed to check up on her, was blocked by security when she attempted to go downstairs to look for her companion. Soon, he dismissed all of them. Remaining board members hired an outside law firm to investigate the allegations and said Weinstein would take an indefinite leave of absence. "I'm not defending him in any sexual harassment cases - there aren't any sexual harassment cases".
