Ex-Actress Latest To Accuse Harvey Weinstein Of Sexual Assault

LA police investigating Weinstein for alleged 2013 sexual assault

She said she spoke briefly to Weinstein at the festival, but he later showed up "without warning" in the lobby of her hotel and called her, asking if he could come to her room. She offered to provide him with a reel of her acting work.

The day after Oscar victor Lupita Nyong'o penned a powerful New York Times op-ed, accusing 'harassment by Harvey Weinstein,' the disgraced mogul has responded. He had this sleazy smile on his face.

"I started to get a sick feeling in my stomach", she said.

"The next thing I knew, he had unzipped his fly and pulled out his penis", the woman now living in Washington said. "I started to tell him about my training and acting experience and he said, 'No".

Kerr, 56, said she was "frozen with fear".

She later attended a staged reading of his show Finding Neverland with two of her male friends, and then a screening of W.E. on her own. "He told me that this was how things worked in Hollywood and that all of the actresses that had made it, had made it this way".

Kerr said she resigned from her job at an entertainment management office a few days later. "I felt so powerless", she tearfully recalled. She said she's hasn't spoken up until now because "I didn't think anyone would believe me". "I hope we can form a community where a woman can speak up about abuse and not suffer another abuse by not being believed and instead being ridiculed".

It was not until she became an Oscar victor in 2014 for her role in "12 Years a Slave" that Weinstein apologized for his behavior and agreed to show her the respect she deserves.

North Korea to keep up nuclear tests
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said the situation with North Korea is different and riskier now because of its nuclear capability.

"Well, no more. That may be the way it was. Because he could win you an Oscar, we were all supposed to look the other way".

"The balance of power has shifted in Hollywood". There have been and will be criminal consequences for men who sexually harass women.

The most recent to add her voice to the choir was actress Lupita Nyong'o. "She had no idea what was coming", Ring told a news conference in downtown LA.

Nyong'o described her encounters with Weinstein in an op-ed piece published by The New York Times on Thursday, including a 2011 incident in which she said the producer offered her a massage at his CT home.

"What happened to her was really awful, it had a huge impact on her life and in a sense she is relieved to come forward now to share what happened with the LAPD, but she is also extremely scared", Ring said at press conference he called after being bombarded with more than 200 media requests when news of the case broke on Thursday (Friday NZT). She said she chose to come forward Thursday at the urging of her children.

She never reported this to the police, because she was afraid and because she was not a resident of the US. When Bloom and Weinstein's business relationship was first announced, Allred made it clear the possibility of facing off with her daughter in court wouldn't stop her from representing the mogul's accusers.

The latest case deepens the producer's potential legal woes as it falls within the 10-year statute of limitations for the crime, while previous accusations have dated back to a decade or more ago.
