NY police reopens 2004 Weinstein assault case

The statement acknowledged that accusers often speak out at and face great professional and emotional risk.

The Weinstein Company board has sacked him, and his wife Georgina Chapman told celebrity magazine People she was leaving Weinstein, with whom she has two children. Maerov said, "Her name came up in 2015, but I don't remember who brought it up".

At least one other unnamed woman said she was raped by Weinstein, but the article did not disclose when it where it happened.

Then, addressing Weinstein saying the culture of the '60s and '70s of which he grew up in led to his toxic behavior, Bee exclaimed, "Oh give me a break, white Cosby!"

"Oh, please, I'm sorry, just come on in".

She ended up getting cast in The Weinstein Co.'s 2017 film, "Tulip Fever".

The social media campaign to further oust Harvey Weinstein's bad behavior took a turn this week when it was learned that the disgraced Hollywood producer previous year had bullied and threatened the founder of the Coachella music festival. It says the claim will be assessed by detectives from the sexual offenses team. British media including Sky News, The Guardian and the BBC identified the alleged assaulter as Weinstein. "In fact, it's one of the easiest things I don't do".

Beckinsale shared on Instagram that when she was called to meet Weinstein at the Savoy Hotel in London at the time, she assumed she would be going to a conference room. Police had her make a secret recording, in which Weinstein could be heard repeatedly insisting that she come into his room, which she refused to do.

'It's really inspiring to see that in a young woman.' the Avengers star said.

Hachette Book Group, one of the country's top publishers, also announced Thursday that it has "terminated" Weinstein Books.

According to Hachette, titles under the Weinstein imprint will be published through the Hachette Books imprint.

Under New York law, making someone engage in oral sex by physical force or the threat of it is a first-degree criminal sexual act.

NY detectives already investigated Weinstein once, in 2015, when an Italian model said the studio executive grabbed her breasts and groped her. Detectives set up a sting where they recorded a conversation between the woman and Weinstein while he tried to persuade her to come into his hotel room.

The official wasn't authorized to speak publicly on an ongoing probe and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

The incident follows a string of sexual harassment allegations being levelled against Weinstein from women who worked with him.

Rose McGowan's Twitter account has been suspended, temporarily muting a central figure in the allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

Representatives for Twitter declined to comment Thursday. The board members Tarak Ben Ammar and Richard Koenigsberg did not respond to messages. "Second chance, I hope". "I gotta get help".

He concludes with an obscenity-laced remark. Pierre Lescure, president of the Cannes Film Festival, said in a statement: "These actions point to a pattern of behavior that merits only the clearest and most unequivocal condemnation".

"Our thoughts go out to the victims, to those who have had the courage to testify and to all the others", Fremaux and Lescure said.
