Harvey Weinstein bragged about copulating Jennifer Lawrence after one more starlet rejected his advancements, a claim has actually alleged.
The most recent accusation versus the film manufacturer arised in court files on Friday, with an unnamed woman asserting he forcibly executed foreplay on her. Weinstein has rejected all accusations of non-consensual sex.
According to the legal action, submitted in Los Angeles, Weinstein pressed the unrevealed starlet to the ground during a meeting at his workplace in 2013 prior to sexually attacking her.
When she denied his advances, Weinstein is affirmed to have asked, “Do you also want to be an actress?”, including: “I slept with Jennifer Lawrence as well as look where she is; she has actually simply won an Oscar.”
Lawrence released a declaration on Friday denying she had actually had a sex-related relationship with Weinstein. “My heart breaks for all the ladies that were victimised by Harvey Weinstein. I have actually never had anything yet a professional connection with him. This is yet an additional example of the predative tactics and lies that he engaged in to tempt numerous females.”
The most recent accuser, provided in lawful files as Jane Doe, is filing a claim against both Weinstein and The Weinstein Firm, the movie studio he started with his sibling Bob. She affirms sex-related battery as well as discrimination.
A rep for Weinstein said the suit was “harmful” and that the movie magnate is “self-conscious” for Lawrence that has “unfortunately been dragged right into this unsightly effort at defamation.”
They said: “This lawsuit was submitted as well as upgraded tactically with no notice offered or any attempt to connect to Mr. Weinstein’s lawyers for one reason; It was implied to embarrass
” There is definitely no reality to the harmful claims made in this suit, and also we are examining our choices with an eye on filing for an immediate dismissal.

” This declaring additionally confirms that any individual can claim whatever they want in a lawsuit for optimum shock value, to sully and also lower, without needing to offer any kind of realities or truth.”
It comes after a team of Weinstein accusers tried to obstruct him from bringing his exclusive e-mails into the general public eye.
Weinstein has asked a personal bankruptcy court in the United States state of Delaware to permit him to recover documents from The Weinstein Company.
He intends to utilize the e-mails in his protection against sexual assault charges in New York. Yet, his accusers from a different civil situation, are attempting to block the step due to worries over discretion.
They have asked a judge to obstruct him from releasing the material to “the media (or any other third party)” after affirming Weinstein’s lawyers informed them he “intended to let loose these emails in the media to guide the court of public opinion.”
Weinstein’s civil lawyer, Scott Cousins, implicated the women of “doing all they can to prevent the reality from coming out.”
Mr. Cousins added: “This technique will certainly not bode well, as they are going behind the insolvency court’s back which has single territory over these e-mails and the complainants know it. To declare sexual assault and after that take such procedures to prevent the reality from being listened to speaks volumes of their objectives.”
Weinstein is next due in court on December 20.
