Harvey Weinstein Latest Accuser Describes Alleged Sexual Attack

Harvey Weinstein Latest Accuser Describes Alleged Sexual Attack

Bob meanwhile is said to have "been privy to multiple claims in which such acts and conduct were alleged against Harvey Weinstein, prior to February, 2014" in the complaint.

British actress Kadian Noble has filed a lawsuit against the Weinstein brothers and the company they founded, arguing that Harvey Weinstein's alleged assault of her at the Cannes Film Festival and the company's complicity in it constituted sex trafficking.

When she rebuffed him, he "forcibly" pulled her into the bathroom, where he pulled down her shirt, unbuckled his trousers and masturbated as he rubbed against her and then forced her hand on his penis, the lawsuit states.

"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.

"Essentially under the statute, if a US citizen goes to another country and uses force to entice a person to engage in a commercial sex act, they violate this law", Herman said.

The complaint states that when the two both found themselves in France soon after, Weinstein 'asked Kadian to come to his hotel room to review her reel with her and discuss further steps in securing the role he had previously targeted for her'.

Herman said they added Bob Weinstein and the company to the lawsuit alleging that both "enabled and benefited from Harvey's assault of Kadian".

Noble also was made to get on the phone with a person she was told was an executive she claims, with that man instructing her to be 'a good girl and do whatever he wished'.

London civil claim lodged against Weinstein

"Instead, he used this ploy as a fraudulent means of obtaining sexual gratification", luring her to his hotel room where he allegedly "forced her hand to masturbate him" until he "ejaculated onto the bathroom floor".

Noble, who is being represented by Stuart Mermelstein, claims that she had been in contact with Weinstein about a role prior to the hotel room incident and dropped off a reel of her acting work at his London office.

The complaint also details the use of the term "FOH" by TWC staffers to refer to women Harvey Weinstein had sexual encounters with in exchange for professional advancement.

He promised her a role but sexually assaulted her after she attempted to show him her showreel at his hotel during the Cannes Film Festival, she told the conference in NY.

'TWC employees knew to "take care" of the FOH's'.

According to the 31-year-old Noble, Weinstein immediately began caressing her shoulder.

Bob Weinstein and TWC did not respond to request for comment on the complaint. "Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances", the spokesperson said. First a civil suit was filed Monday in the United Kingdom alleged sexual assault by the disgraced producer.
