Harvey Weinstein had lawyered up even before the New York Times dropped its bombshell report about him, because he knew that both the Times and the New Yorker were working on investigative pieces. Well, now the New Yorker has weighed in, and its report has allegations that are even more damning.
Ronan Farrow writes that during his 10-month investigation, he spoke to 13 women who accused Weinstein of sexually assaulting or harassing them. The alleged incidents took place from the 1990s through 2015:
- "Three women—among them (Italian actress and director Asia) Argento and a former aspiring actress named Lucia Evans—told me that Weinstein raped them, allegations that include Weinstein forcibly performing or receiving oral sex and forcing vaginal sex. Four women said that they experienced unwanted touching that could be classified as an assault," writes Farrow.
