TV Journalist Says Harvey Weinstein Masturbated In Front Of Her

Gretchen Carlson Harvey Weinstein

The next day, Weinstein called Sivan on the phone to ask if she wanted to get together after he returned from over seas, adding that he 'had a great time last night'.

Speaking to the New York Times a day prior to her interview with Stephanopoulos, Bloom had said: "The allegations if true would constitute sexual harassment". When they made it to the kitchen, Weinstein allegedly dismissed a pair of staffers, leaving Sivan alone with him.

The only way for Sivan, who was blocked by kitchen equipment, to exit the situation was to push past him and get to the hallway.

The Huffington Post contacted Weinstein's company for comment but has not heard back yet. Now, a former reporter for News 12 says that Weinstein essentially trapped her in a deserted NYC restaurant and masturbated in front of her. His response, according to HuffPo, was "Well, can you just stand there and shut up".

Ms. Sivan recalled the alleged encounter after The New York Times published a bombshell report Thursday revealing that Mr. Weinstein, the head of The Weinstein Company and Miramax film studios, reached at least eight settlements with women dating back almost three decades in response to similar previously unpublicized allegations of sexual harassment and other misconduct, including several leading actresses.

"Authors, actors, and moviemakers should not work for any Weinstein company until he resigns", she tweeted Saturday. Weinstein then allegedly undid his trousers and started masturbating in front of her.

Once Sivan and Weinstein were downstairs they chatted and he showed her the cafe.

"Sivan said she was deeply shocked by Weinstein's behavior and was frozen and didn't know what to do or say", reports HuffPo. The incident in the vestibule didn't last long. The security guard agreed to let the friend down to the cafe.

Sivan and her friend left just after the encounter, and both of them recalled Sivan discussing what had happened as soon as they left Socialista. She claims she once again pointed out that she was in a relationship and ended the call and all communication with Weinstein. She has not interacted with Weinstein since the incident in 2007.

Following the allegations of sexual assault, Weinstein has reportedly taken an indefinite leave of absence from the Weinstein Company.
