"Mr. Weinstein denies allegations of non-consensual sex".
But that was until Kadian Noble, an aspiring British actress, made a decision 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.
The suit accuses Weinstein of groping her, pulled her into his hotel bathroom and forcing her to pleasure him, telling her that "everything will be taken care of for you if you relax".
"Kadian has suffered severe injuries and emotional distress, pain and suffering, mental anguish, inconvenience, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, inability to lead a normal life, shame and humiliation", lawyer Stuart Mermelstein writes.
Still-shaken actress Kadian Noble described a predatory Harvey Weinstein pouncing on her without warning during a brutal 2014 sexual assault in a Cannes hotel room.
If she did that, Noble claims she was told "they would work" together in the future.
The federal lawsuit claims Weinstein engaged in sex trafficking by traveling from the U.S.to London and France where the alleged assault took place.
Weinstein's brother and business partner Bob was also accused in the suit that alleged he was either aware of what Harvey Weinstein was doing or "in reckless disregard of the facts". He then allegedly told her his "people would be in touch".
Dozens of women, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Lupita Nyong'o and Ashley Judd, have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, while actresses Asia Argento, Rose McGowan and others have accused the Oscar victor of raping them.
"He ejaculated all over the bathroom floor, and stepped over it as though nothing happened", said Noble, recalling how Weinstein was initially flattering and asking if the actress liked him.
The assistant "kept reassuring me that he is a good man" and said that she should write a letter to Weinstein detailing her allegations, Ms Noble said.
Noble's complaint calls The Weinstein Company complicit in this activity, since it either knew or "was in reckless disregard of the facts" that Weinstein recruited young female actors to visit him, sometimes via interstate or global travel, under false pretenses, promising an acting opportunity and then coercing or forcing sexual activity. In October, the DGA had held a board meeting to discuss the decades of sexual harassment and assault allegations facing Weinstein.
The complaint then lays out its reasons for naming The Weinstein Company and Bob Weinstein as co-defendants.
The latest accusation against Hollywood movie producer Harvey Weinstein claims he violated U.S. sex trafficking laws according to a civil suit filed Monday in U.S. District Court. "Mr Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances".
