Fox News Reporter Claims Harvey Weinstein Masturbated in Front of Her

Harvey Weinstein arrives at the Oscars on Sunday Feb. 22 2015 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles

After the NY Times published their story about "decades of sexual harassment allegations" against movie producer Harvey Weinstein, many who work in and cover Hollywood were amazed-because Weinstein's behavior has apparently been an "open secret," tolerated because of the power he wields. At Cafe Socialista, Weinstein offered Sivan a tour, which she reluctantly accepted after telling a friend to come and get her if she wasn't back in "ten minutes".

Once they left, Sivan says Weinstein leaned in and tried to kiss her. Sivan rejected that attempt and told him she had a long-term boyfriend.

"Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski says she'd rather turn the page than write a book for accused serial sexual harasser Harvey Weinstein.

Sivan told Huffington Post journalist Yashar Ali that Weinstein trapped her in a restaurant hallway and forced her to watch him masturbate until he ejaculated into a pot plant. She met both as they were headed up from the cafe and says that Sivan told her what happened right after they left the club.

That was the last contact the two had. Now, one more woman is adding her voice to the group: A female TV reporter is alleging that Weinstein masturbated in front of her, and her account is horrifying. As they reached the kitchen area, Weinstein saw a few staffers working in the kitchen.

Paddock opened fire on a music festival in Vegas on Sunday night, killing almost 60 people and wounding hundreds more. Paddock, 64, went as far as booking a room in a Chicago hotel but did not show up, the officials said.

McGowan has yet to confirm the circulating New York Times report suggesting she was paid $100,000 in settlement by Weinstein following an undisclosed incident from the mid-1990's.

A friend of Sivan's who was interviewed for the article and who was there at Socialista on the night told HuffPo that she'd said to Sivan that if she didn't come back from her trip with Weinstein in 10 minutes, she'd come looking for her. "I can't go forward with those books unless Harvey resigns". A list of detailed questions was emailed to a Weinstein Company publicist. Sivan reminded him that she was in a relationship and says she quickly ended the call.

The night of the incident started with Sivan meeting Weinstein and others at Cipriani, a well-known Italian restaurant in Manhattan.

When she rebuffed the movie mogul, he simply began to pleasure himself.

The Weinstein Company board of directors issued a statement late Friday, saying the board members "strongly endorse" Weinstein's leave of absence and take "extremely seriously the accusations" raised in the Times story.
