Brzezinski: Book Deal On Hold Unless Harvey Weinstein Resigns

Amid multiple sexual harassment allegations, Hollywood heavyweight Harvey Weinstein is now also accused of cornering a TV journalist and masturbating in front of her.

Lauren Sivan, a former news anchor in NY, tells the Huffington Post that Weinstein trapped her in the hallway of a restaurant and masturbated in front of her until he ejaculated into a potted plant in the hall. She later rode with him and others to Socialista, a Cuban-themed club and restaurant in which Weinstein and Giuseppe Cipriani, who was then the head of the Cipriani restaurant empire, were investors. He tried to kiss Sivan, who rejected him and told him she had a long-term boyfriend.

The incident only ended when he allegedly "ejaculated quickly into a potted plant that was in the vestibule and then proceeded to zip up his trousers and they walked back into the kitchen".

By the time she headed toward the kitchen, Sivan and Weinstein had emerged, the friend said. "I'll stand up to him, but if I'm a 23-year-old in his workplace... of course, they're intimidated", she explained.

At that point, Sivan claims that Weinstein exposed himself and began masturbating. Sivan said she was deeply shocked by Weinstein's behavior and was frozen and didn't know what to do or say.
