Weinstein Forced Staff to Corner Starlets, Schedule Sex, Inject Erection Drugs, New York Attorney General Claims
Harvey Weinstein threatened to kill employees and their families, according to claims in a new civil-rights lawsuit filed against the now-notorious movie mogul, his brother Bob Weinstein, and their empire, The Weinstein Company.
Shocking allegations about the alleged serial sex harasser were submitted in a suit being submitted by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. The complaint was filed in New York County Supreme Court late Sunday. It alleges stunning violations of the state’s human rights, civil right, and business laws.
It allegations Weinstein” regularly chided wives employing gender-based indecencies “– calling female employees “c–t” or “pussy” instead of using their first name when he was angry. In addition to the sexual harassment, bully, and allegations of sex crime, Weinstein allegedly threatened the well-being of his employees, saying ” I will kill your family ,” and,” You don’t know what I can do .”
Weinstein often bragged about his connection to political figures and said he had” contacts within the Secret Service who are able to take care of problems ,” the lawsuit alleges.
The court records likewise claim that the management and board at the company” were repeatedly will come forward with credible evidence of[ Weinstein ]’ s sexual harassment” of employees” and his use of corporate employees and resources to facilitate sexual practice with third party .”
In one episode, Weinstein burnt a male assistant for being” simply a fucking f—-t boy, a stupid fucking f—-t boy ,” according to an email complaint sent to human resources function about the incident.
According to another formal complaint made to the company’s human-resources department, Weinstein chided a female employee in 2012, threatening to” cut[ her] loins ,” which traumatized her and constructed her feeling” forced out” of her own chore. She said in the complaint that the episode caused her” severe stress .” Her complaint was allegedly resolved through a deal involving a non-disclosure agreement.
In addition to the threats, at least three decides of employees were required to help Weinstein construct “sexual conquests,” in agreement with the suit.
The company employed one group of female employees whose primary chore it was to go with Weinstein to events and “facilitate” his “sexual conquests,” the lawsuit governments. Those ladies were kept on the payroll in various cities, including London, Los Angeles, and New York. Witnesses claimed they were called Weinstein’s” wing wives .”
The second group was made up of women who” were feel compelled to take various steps to further[ Weinstein ]’ s regular sexual practice, including by contacting’ Friends of Harvey’ and other prospective sex spouses via text message or phone or at his direction and preserving space on his calendar for sexual activity .”
Members of this group at various days allegedly had to handle Weinstein’s erectile-dysfunction shots–and even administer the injections. Others had to prepare chambers in his office for sexual activity–and clean up after it was over.
The third, mainly female group of employees responsible for such demeaning job, according to the lawsuit, had to facilitate Weinstein’s sexual activity by meeting with prospective sexual conquests and then following through on the employment opportunities promised by Weinstein afterward.
Women in each of the groups, according to the lawsuit, described a hostile work environment created by all these activities that was humiliating and humiliating.
His assistants, according to the lawsuit, maintained two copies of a document they called the “Bible,” which detailed Weinstein’s likes and disfavours and names that would help organize sex activity for him.
Weinstein’s motorists, in Los Angeles and New York City, are always said to be required to keep condoms and erectile-dysfunction injections in their cars at all hours.
Schneiderman alleges that Bob Weinstein, who was deeply well informed two brothers &# x27; s sex misconduct, did nothing to stop it.
In a press conference on Monday afternoon, Schneiderman said the 4-month investigation disclosed “flagrant” misconduct worse than anything else he’s seen at any other company.
Per The Hollywood Reporter , the suit–which seek restitution and injury payments for Weinstein’s alleged victims–will likely delay the sale of the company, which was expected to close this weekend. According to The New York Times , the company was foreseeing a deal that would have brought in $275 million, as well as the assumption of $225 million in debt.
” Any sale of the Weinstein Company must ensure that victims will be compensated, employees will be protected going forward, and that neither perpetrators nor enablers will be unjustly enriched ,” Schneiderman said in a news release.
” We believe that a fair investigations conducted by Mr. Schneiderman will demonstrate that many of the allegations against Harvey Weinstein are without virtue ,” the movie mogul’s lawyer told USA Today , in a statement released.” While Mr. Weinstein’s behavior was not without fault, there certainly was no criminality, and at the end of the inquiry it will be clear that Harvey Weinstein promoted more wives to key executive posts than any other industry leader and there was zero discrimination at either Miramax or TWC .”
More than 50 females have come forward since October with allegations against Weinstein that include everything from rape to sexual harassment. His alleged victims include starlets like Kate Beckinsale, Rose McGowan, Lupita Nyong’o, Uma Thurman, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
