A young model has accused Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual abuse.
The unnamed 23-year-old model from Italy told NYPD that Weinstein touched her genitals and breasts on Friday evening at 6 p.m. at his office at the Tribeca Film Center, reports the Daily News.
A police source told the Daily News that Weinstein, 63, invited the model into his office for a business meeting. “He initiated the contact,” the source said. “He saw her and spoke to her. She didn’t know who he was until he approached her.
Weinstein was interviewed by the special victims unit on Saturday and now has a lawyer to handle the case.
Weinstein is well-known as one of the most powerful producers in Hollywood. He has been married to Marchesa designer and former model Georgina Chapman since 2007.
