Video shows Weinstein caressing woman before alleged rape

Video shows Weinstein caressing woman before alleged rape

Melissa Thompson claims she was raped by Harvey Weinstein in 2011.

The frankly disturbing footage, shows Weinstein acting incredibly inappropriate, propositioning the woman, and caressing her.

Melissa Thompson says she went to meet Mr Weinstein at his NY offices in 2011 as a representative for a tech start-up that was pitching online video services.

As detailed previously in her class action suit with Larissa Gomes and Caitlin Dulany, the video (watch the full Sky segment here) shot on Thompson's laptop shows the now much accused producer being very touchy.

In the video, Weinstein eventually agrees to use Thompson's service.

"I constantly felt trapped, no matter where I turned", she told Sky News.

Finau gets final spot on U.S. Ryder Cup team
Jim Furyk selected Tony Finau with his fourth and final captain's pick on Monday to round out the 2018 U.S. And that pick seems to be one of the toughest, coming down to either Tony Finau or Xander Schauffele .

Nearly immediately, Weinstein asks: "Am I allowed to flirt with you?" Thompson had set up a meeting with Weinstein's company at their offices. He then asks, "So, am I allowed to flirt with you?" to which Thompson replies, "Um, we'll see, a little bit".

In an interview with Sky News, Thompson said she believed the meeting would have been with a marketing team, but Weinstein requested the two meet alone and can be heard in the video telling off-camera staffers not to interrupt them.

"Now I see, he's trying any way he can, to move me into that zone of comfortable then uncomfortable and confused and vulnerable and recognizing that he is powerful and I'm not". She says it was standard protocol for her to record meetings, and the video for this one is unsettling.

The women suing Weinstein - Caitlin Dulany, Larissa Gomes and Melissa Thompson - filed the lawsuit on behalf of "hundreds of other females like them" who were subject to "unwanted sexual conduct" from Weinstein "that took many forms: flashing, groping, fondling, harassing, battering, false imprisonment, sexual assault, attempted rape, and/or completed rape". Weinstein ignored it, instead grabbing the woman in a hug and rubbing her back.

He then strokes her arm while she continues trying to discuss her business.

"A little bit", she tells him in the video. "It's okay, would you like to do it some more?" "I had entered that fight-or-flight mode and I was scared of him".

Also, the smart connector is located above the Lightning port, instead of on the side of the device as it is on current iPad Pros. Apple rumors are swirling - and the suggestion is that we're about to see a brand new iPad Pro , or perhaps an iPad X.

Weinstein then invites Thompson for a drink at the Tribeca Grand hotel room at 5:30 p.m., and she accepts.

"If he would make a comment, I would try to catch it and return it in a way that felt a little safer than the way he threw it at me. He cornered me over and over again", Thompson said.

One of Harvey Weinstein's accusers has released video of an encounter showing his inappropriate behavior before he allegedly raped her.

Weinstein's lawyer told Sky that when the video is viewed in context, "it demonstrates that there is nothing forceful, but casual, if not awkward, flirting from both parties".

"This is a further attempt to publicly disgrace Mr Weinstein for financial gain, and we will not stand for it". I worked in Wall Street before I went to business school, and I worked in an environment that was heavily male dominated...
