Harvey Weinstein has reportedly hired two top lawyers ahead of “bombshell” articles

Harvey Weinstein has reportedly hired two top lawyers ahead of “bombshell” articles

The incident took place a decade ago, according to Lauren Sivan, who at the time was a news anchor on a local cable channel in New York, Long Island 12. She later rode with him and others to Socialista, a Cuban-themed club and restaurant in which Weinstein and Giuseppe Cipriani, who was then the head of the Cipriani restaurant empire, were investors. Once the pair were alone, she says Weinstein physically cornered her and attempted to kiss her in a hallway.

In the article by Yashar Ali, Sivan explains that she did not come forward with the accusation sooner because she was in a relationship at the time and she feared Weinstein's power, but she did relay the event to friends.

Also on Huffington Post, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, a filmmaker and wife of California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, published a column in which she related her own experiences with Weinstein and called for the end of "open secrets" of sexual harassment by powerful Hollywood producers and other elites.

"Harvey Weinstein needs to resign from his companies, face his sickness, and go into a long, self-imposed exile", Brezinski wrote in a tweet Saturday, linking to a New York Times story titled, "Harvey Weinstein's Media Enablers". She says she "was trapped by Weinstein's body and was intimidated". 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. Sivan tweeted the interview on Friday, saying that she was lucky enough to not need a job or favor from Weinstein at the time of the incident.

Pique jeered by fans as Spain reach Russian Federation 2018
The 2010 world champions have won eight out of nine matches in Group G and are all set to finish on top ahead of Italy . It is predicted that Spain will win this match against Albania .

In a 2001 profile of Weinstein in New York Magazine, journalist David Carr noted that while sitting at a table, Weinstein had "three Diet Cokes on standby in front of him". At the time, Sivan was a reporter for Long Island 12, a local NY cable channel.

Once they got to the restaurant's kitchen, Weinstein sent away a few employees who were cleaning up.

Actresses Ashley Judd and Jessica Hynes say he sexually harassed them. She and her friend quickly left following the encounter. She has not interacted with the movie mogul since.

As Weinstein left for an indefinite absence from work, one-third of his company's board members submitted their resignation.
