She accused that weinstein tried his best and continuously poke her to leave the meeting and let him talk with the actress directly in isolation but she politely refused to do so.
On 11th October 2017, Simone Sheffield said:
I use to manage indian actress Aishwarya Rai. While dealing with Harvey I found it comical how hard he tried to get Aishwarya alone. But he was a pig … looked and acted like a “big bully pig” …. He asked me to leave the meeting numerous times and I politely declined. When we were leaving his office, he cornered me and said “what do I have to do to get her alone?” I told him to “kiss my black ass“. When Ash and I returned to our hotel, I sent Harvey a steel pig trough filled with diet coke as a thank you gift for the meeting. Yes, we did do business and yes, eventually threatened me. Told me that I’d never work in this business, blah blah blah! …. what I said to him I can’t print. But you can be sure, I never gave him the opportunity to even breathe on my client.
Fox News. Weinstein. The President. Such abuse have gone on way before these creeps and will sadly continue until women feel empowered and protected enough to speak out.
They say there’s strength in numbers…. perhaps. But it takes only one brave soul to take the first stand. With social media as your platform, that one soul will lead an army, in no time.
Brave ladies….don’t hold back – THE TRUTH. Protect one another. Support one another. Love one another.
This is not the first time when someone accused Weinstein for bullying, harassment. Harvey Weinstein has been accused for the same charges along with assaults with several women in Hollywood. New Yorker Times was the first to blow the lid off the decade old secrets last week. They later published three women story, accusing him for raping them.
Harvey Weinstein is suing the production company “The Weinstein Co. Film Company. The case has been filed in Delaware’s Court of Chancery. The New Yorker Times reported that Harvey Weinstein had reached eight previously undisclosed settlements with women who accused him of sexual harassment and unwanted physical contact.
According to Variety.com Cara Delevingne is another actress who comes forward to encounter Harvey Weinstein. She said that she was working as an actress and the movie mogul Harvey Weinstein tried to kiss another actresss in front of her. She said in an Instagram:
“When I first started to work as an actress, i was working on a film and I received a call from Harvey Weinstein asking if I had slept with any of the women I was seen out with in the media. It was a very odd and uncomfortable call….i answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that If I was gay or decided to be with a woman especially in public that I’d never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood” (source variety.com)
