Harvey Weinstein trapped a woman in a hallway and touched himself in front of her: report
Yet another woman has come forward with an account of sexual harassment by disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein.
According to the Huffington Post, Weinstein “trapped a woman in the hallway of a restaurant that was closed to the public and masturbated in front of her until he ejaculated.”
The woman making the accusations is reporter Lauren Sivan, who was working for a Long Island news station at the time.
Minutes after Huffington Post broke the Story, AP reported that Weinstein is now on “indefinite leave.“

Along with Sivan, actresses Ashley Judd and Rose McGowen and multiple former Miramax employees have accused the film producer of harassing them in a variety of ways.
Weinstein retained attorney Lisa Bloom, who led the legal charges against former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly for sexual assault, as one of his lawyers in the controversy.
