Riding on the back of the recent New York Times report regarding Harvey Weinstein's history of sexual harassment, another woman has come forward to accuse the film producer of indecent exposure and sexual assault.
There, he met a local cable news anchor, Lauren Sivan, who later rode with him, the restaurant's owner, and others to a Cuban-themed club the restaurant owner was an investor in. After a while she was allowed entry and came across Sivan and Weinstein as they were exiting the kitchen area.
'Well, can you just stand there and shut up, ' Weinstein allegedly told the anchor before he carried out his sex act.
At that point, Sivan claims that Weinstein exposed himself and began masturbating.
When they got to the club, Weinstein reportedly asked Sivan if she wanted a tour.

Speaking further about Weinstein, Sivan also said that the Hollywood producer's vehicle was "stocked full of cases of Diet Coke" and that she found it very weird, according to the report.
Her friend went looking for her after 10 minutes had gone by, but was stopped from going downstairs into the kitchen by security, according to Sivan. Sivan said she was deeply shocked by Weinstein's behavior and was frozen and didn't know what to do or say.
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 Weinstein 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. She claims she once again pointed out that she was in a relationship and ended the call and all communication with Weinstein. The company is also hiring outside counsel to investigate the claims of sexual harassment.
"As Harvey has said, it is important for him to get professional help for the problems he has acknowledged", according to the company.
As Weinstein left for an indefinite absence from work, one-third of his company's board members submitted their resignation. "Had I been asked by Mr. Weinstein to represent him, I would have declined, because I do not represent individuals accused of sexual harassment", Allred stated, in an interview.
