A reporter detailed graphic incident with Harvey Weinstein amid sexual harassment controversy

Harvey Weinstein

And she called on others in the entertainment world to turn their backs on the 65-year-old Weinstein and his companies until he is fired or quits. Sivan says she was trapped by Weinstein's body and was intimidated.

"Harvey Weinstein needs to resign from his companies, face his sickness, and go into a long, self-imposed exile", Brezinski wrote in a tweet Saturday, linking to a New York Times story titled, "Harvey Weinstein's Media Enablers".

Brzezinski, who signed a July book deal with a Weinstein company, declared she would not honor her contract unless the Oscar-winning movie mogul is gone.

When she rebuffed him, Weinstein reportedly said "Well, can you just stand there and shut up". He then proceeded to expose himself and allegedly masturbated in front of her and then ejaculated into a nearby plant. Initially blocked by a security guard, he eventually let her downstairs into the cafe.

By the time she headed toward the kitchen, Sivan and Weinstein had emerged, the friend said. He tried to kiss Sivan, who rejected him and told him she had a long-term boyfriend. Sivan noted to HuffPost that Weinstein's vehicle was "stocked full of cases of Diet Coke", which she said she found to be odd.

While Sivan has remained silent about the incident out of fear of retaliation from Weinstein, who has tremendous power in Hollywood, her friend who was also at the event has collaborated her story with The Huffington Post.

Kim Masters, the Hollywood Reporter's editor at large, told the NY Times, "The unfortunate reality of Hollywood is that if someone has money, then they can generally find some kind of audience of people who are interested in working with them".

"At the last minute, the source withdrew", she said.

Democratic lawmakers have rushed to distance themselves from the veteran Hollywood producer after a bombshell Times report this week revealed allegations that the Democratic mega-donor had spent decades sexually harassing women he worked with.

"As Harvey has said, it is important for him to get professional help for the problems he has acknowledged". A former employee said, "There has always been a love-hate relationship between the brothers". The company is also hiring outside counsel to investigate the claims of sexual harassment. "However, Mr. Weinstein denies many of them and was not given a fair opportunity to present evidence and witnesses on his side".
