  • Unnamed Actress Suing Harvey Weinstein in LA Alleging Sexual Assault

Film producer Harvey Weinstein has had multiple allegations of non-consensual sex levelled against him.

There was no immediate comment from representatives for Weinstein and his former company, The Weinstein Co., on Wednesday's lawsuit.

She says in 2015 she met Weinstein at the Montage hotel to talk about a job on a show called "Marco Polo".

An unnamed actress has filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Co. alleging that the disgraced media mogul sexually assaulted her twice and that the company had prior knowledge of such behavior by Weinstein.

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.

"Plaintiff, and hundreds of other female actors like her, found themselves with Weinstein... at offices, in hotel rooms, or at rooms at industry functions", the legal papers read.

"Ms.de la Huerta's communications with her psychologist include information about subjects and individuals completely unrelated to the grand jury focused on the sexual assaults alleged", Straus had argued, saying those files are protected by doctor-patient confidentiality. The second, filed in California by "Jane Doe 1", says she's a legally blind, disabled actress who assaulted her at a casting couch meeting for the role of a blind woman at his office in NY. He has since been fired from The Weinstein Company, expelled from the Television Academy, dumped by his wife and is now getting treatment for his alleged sex addiction.

Meanwhile, police in New York, Los Angeles and London have launched investigations into some of the allegations against the producer.

Beverly Hills police have said they are investigating allegations against Weinstein, but have released few details.
