Aspiring actress Dominique Huett last month also sued Weinstein Co. for negligence over an alleged sexual assault against her by the producer in 2010. The rep adds, "Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances". The documents do not specify where the incident took place within the hotel. According to the papers, Weinstein said he would not touch her, but just wanted her to watch him pleasure himself. As soon as she stepped into his bedroom, the papers state, Weinstein "forcefully threw" her onto the bed, "pulled down her jeans and started to orally copulate her". She said she pushed his head off and told him to stop, but he used his "massive weight and strength". After he withdrew, he gripped her with one hand while using his other hand to masturbate.
