In a press conference on Tuesday in NY held by lawyer Gloria Allred, Mimi Haleyi claimed Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on her in 2006. "He held me down on the bed".

He said Huett approached him after dozens of other women began coming forward two weeks ago to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment, coercion, assault or rape in episodes dating back decades. "At the time, I personally did not have the idea to even report anything because I didn't think anyone would care", she said. I was mortified. I was in disbelief and disgusted.

"I also think that social media gives me a sense of hope because there are so many loud anonymous voices from women all over the world that are saying, 'I hear you, I believe you, I stand with you and I support you.' And I think that feeling supported is a huge first step", she said.

Haleyi, who was flanked by the women's rights attorney Gloria Allred on Tuesday as she described her encounter, worked in her 20s as a production assistant on a television show produced by the Weinstein Company.

Weinstein representative Sallie Hofmeister said Tuesday, "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

"If she spoke to (investigators), it would be to answer any questions they might have that might be relevant to their investigation". Then, she said, he masturbated in front of her.

Haleyi said she first met Weinstein in 2004 at the London premiere of "The Aviator". She tried to deter him by telling him she was menstruating, but he persisted, she said.

She said it was no coincidence the composer of Eminem Esque had the music to Lose Yourself in front of him when he wrote his song. The music used in the National Party ad was called Eminem Esque , copying and exploiting the original award-winning music.

Another time she encountered him, at the Cannes Film Festival, she had offered to work on any upcoming productions taking place in NY. After a few minutes of normal conversation, she said Weinstein asked for a massage.

"It was an imbalance of power, she said no, she was coerced, and it was unwanted sexual touching", he said.

She described feeling surprised when Weinstein later contacted her about a job on a TV show he was producing in NY. He wouldn't take no for an answer.

But Weinstein got in touch afterward and offered her a job on one of his TV productions in NY. "He kept messaging me and calling me and even showed up at the apartment where I was staying in the East Village, twice in one day, and literally physically forced himself in through the door, pleading with me to come with him to Paris".

"In Hollywood, there's a name for what happened here", Herman said. "It's time for him to take meaningful actions". Once there, however, Weinstein went to the bathroom and returned only in a bathrobe, Huett alleges.

Other examples tell of a female staff getting late-night text messages, another getting a compliment on a body part, and a candidate touching a fundraising consultant and then refusing to pay her when his advances were rebuked.

Allred said she has written to the Weinstein Company board, asking for a meeting. Hayleyi said she made a decision to come forward to support all the other women who have already done so.
