Who Is Lisa Bloom and Why is She Defending Harvey Weinsten

Meryl Streep and Harvey Weinstein reportedly will team up in The Senator s Wife a film that looks at the behind-the-scenes influence wielded by the NRA to defeat a gun-control bill after Sandy Hook

She said that Weinstein lured her into the basement of a a Cuban bar and restaurant in Greenwich Village and tried to kiss her.

Weinstein is under fire after the New York Times documented decades of sexual harassment allegations against the Miramax founder, including at least eight that resulted in legal settlements. 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". "Others did. Keep that in mind", she said in a previous tweet. In a passage that matches many women's accounts of sexual harassment, "She remained quiet because she was in a long-term relationship and fearful of the power that Weinstein wielded in the media".

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

Though she spoke privately of the encounter, Sivan said that she did not speak of the incident publicly out of concern for her long-time relationship and fear of backlash.

Sivan claims he exposed himself to her, masturbated and ejaculated into a nearby potted plant.

Once they got to the restaurant's kitchen, Weinstein sent away a few employees who were cleaning up. Sivan said she was deeply shocked by Weinstein's behavior and was frozen and didn't know what to do or say.

The tweet came shortly after The New York Times claimed that Weinstein, who is one of Hollywood's most celebrated studio heads, paid $100,000 to McGowan for an unknown incident shortly after she filmed her breakthrough role in the film 'Scream'. The incident in the vestibule didn't last long.

Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein's sexual proclivities apparently extended well beyond his former and current employees and the industry itself, according to fresh revelations made by a report. The security guard agreed to let the friend down to the cafe. Weinstein mentioned that he was going on a foreign trip and asked if Sivan wanted to get together when he got back.

But it didn't end there: Weinstein allegedly called Sivan the next day to say he'd had "a great time" and asked if she'd like to meet up with him once he was back from some travel.

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.
