The anonymous woman alleges sexual assault by the disgraced movie mogul
A woman has claimed that Harvey Weinstein once bragged about having sex with Jennifer Lawrence.
TMZ reports that a new lawsuit hears how Weinstein allegedly forcibly performed oral sex on the anonymous aspiring actress. He responded to the woman’s tearful protests by saying: “I slept with Jennifer Lawrence and look where she is; she has just won an Oscar.”
The lawsuit claims that the woman and Weinstein had a meeting at the Waldorf Astoria in Park City, Utah during the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The woman alleges that Weinstein entered a bathroom while she was on the toilet and proceeded to masturbate on her.
The pair met again later that year at Weinstein’s office in NYC. This was where the aforementioned incident involving Lawrence’s name occurred.
Lawrence has denied having sexual relations with Weinstein, telling TMZ: “My heart breaks for all the women who were victimised by Harvey Weinstein. I have never had anything but a professional relationship with him. This is yet another example of the predatory tactics and lies that he engaged in to lure countless women”
Yesterday (December 14) a representative for Weinstein sent the following statement to The Hollywood Reporter:
“This lawsuit was filed and updated strategically with no notice given or any attempt to reach out to Mr. Weinstein’s attorneys for one reason; It was meant to embarrass Mr. Weinstein and garner unchecked media attention. There is absolutely no truth to the malicious claims made in this lawsuit, and we are reviewing our options with an eye on filing for an immediate dismissal.
“Mr. Weinstein is embarrassed for Ms. Lawrence with whom he has only had a professional and respectful relationship, who has sadly been dragged into this ugly attempt at defamation. This filing further proves that anyone can say whatever they want in a lawsuit for maximum shock value, to defame and debase, without having to offer any facts or reality.”
Weinstein is currently awaiting trial on multiple charges in New York.
