Video shows Weinstein caressing woman before alleged rape

Irene MckinneySep 14, 2018

Ms Thompson was at The Weinstein Company offices in NY in September 2011 to pitch her tech start-up company's new video and analytics service.

In 2011, Thompson said she met Weinstein at the Weinstein Company office in NY to pitch her tech start-up's services.

Thompson says she was expecting to have a meeting with the marketing team at Weinstein's company but the movie producer entered the room alone.

One of Harvey Weinstein's accusers has released video of an encounter showing his inappropriate behavior before he allegedly raped her.

Melissa Thompson, who has previously publicly complained of abusive behaviour by Weinstein during a 2011 business meeting in NY, gave a tape of the encounter to Sky News.

In the roughly 8-minute video shown on the Sky News website, Weinstein can be seen maneuvering Thompson's attempted handshake into a hug, during which he says, "that's nice".

The video shows Thompson reacting with discomfort but also joking about his advances, saying that "data is hot". Sky News also reports that he locked the door at this time. "Brafman says, ". the video, when viewed in its entirety, in context and not in select excerpts, demonstrates that there is nothing forceful, but casual - if not awkward - flirting from both parties".

Harvey Weinstein is escorted in handcuffs into the State Supreme Court after on Monday for arraignment on charges alleging he committed a sex crime against a third woman on 9 July 2018 in New York City.

Weinstein then invites Thompson for a drink at the Tribeca Grand hotel room at 5:30 p.m., and she accepts.

As the meeting continues, Weinstein runs his hand up her arm, and after telling her that he's going to use her platform, runs his hand up her leg. She tried to fight him and get away from him along the way but he kept blocking her way. I constantly felt trapped, no matter where I turned.

Thompson told the outlet she had difficulty staying "on script" during her demonstration with Weinstein.

"It is hot", Weinstein says. "He cornered me, over and over again".

The recorded footage and the alleged rape are both part of a class action lawsuit against Mr Weinstein.

The statement continued: "Anything short of that is meant to make Mr. Weinstein appear inappropriate, and even exploitative".

Thompson's rape allegation is part of a class action lawsuit against the former Hollywood producer, whose career was toppled by a series of rape, sexual assault and harassment allegations a year ago.

The meeting goes on like that from there.

"This is a further attempt to publicly disgrace Mr Weinstein for financial gain, and we will not stand for it".

So far, over 80 women have accused the producer of sexual misconduct, assault or rape.

Weinstein, who wasn't even supposed to be at the meeting, denies that any non-consensual act took place.
