NY police reopens 2004 Weinstein assault case


Marking International Day of the Girl, the 45-year-old actress posted a selfie with her eldest child, 13, and wrote a heartfelt caption paying tribute to the teen. "It's serial sexual harassment not a Monkee's tattoo!"

Meanwhile, New York City police told the AP on Thursday that investigators are reviewing old files to see if any women previously reported assaults. Evans said she met Weinstein when she was in college in 2004 at the club Cipriani Upstairs and then another time at his office. She says she realized "he couldn't remember if he had assaulted me or not".

The official wasn't authorized to speak publicly on an ongoing probe and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

NY detectives already investigated Weinstein once, in 2015, when an Italian model said the studio executive grabbed her breasts and groped her. Detectives set up a sting where they recorded a conversation between the woman and Weinstein while he tried to persuade her to come into his hotel room.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane addresses a joke he made about Weinstein's sexual conduct at the 2013 Oscar nominations, saying chose to speak out after a co-star had been harassed by the producer.

In the audio of their conversation which was released by the magazine, Weinstein can be heard apologizing for grabbing her breast and then repeatedly pressuring her to come into his hotel room.

Rose McGowan's Twitter account has been suspended, temporarily muting a central figure in the allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

When Delevingne got up to hurriedly leave, she wrote, "he walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips".

Representatives for Twitter declined to comment Thursday. Revelations that the Hollywood mogul sexually harassed women for almost three decades prompted three of the company's nine board members to resign, according to The New York Times which broke the news in a bombshell report earlier this week. The board members Tarak Ben Ammar and Richard Koenigsberg did not respond to messages.

On Wednesday morning, however, he was seen storming out of his daughter Remy's home in the Los Angeles area, with TMZ video also showing law enforcement at the house in response to what was described as a "family dispute" that spilled into the street.

He concludes with an obscenity-laced remark.

A statement from the Cannes Film Festival says organisers are "dismayed" to learn of the allegations about Weinstein. Or more accurately, "Where's Weinstein going?" "Our thoughts go out the victims, to those who have had the courage to testify and to all the others".

The Harvey Weinstein sex abuse scandal has entangled a former president, a former presidential candidate and now a former presidential adviser.

Bannon, whose website has hammered Democrats for accepting Weinstein's political donations, himself profited from a relationship with the movie mogul, in an ill-fated joint venture more than a decade ago.

The Academy has awarded 81 Oscars to films produced by the Miramax studio and the Weinstein Company, both co-founded by Weinstein and his brother.
