Another actress comes forward to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault

Another woman has come forward to allege that Hollywood film producer, Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted her in a London hotel after a Bafta awards ceremony.

Natassia Malthe, who is still a working actress with dozens of credits is at least the sixth to publicly accuse him of rape.

Malthe told reporters: “He barged into my room, then I remembered he took off his pants and sat on the bed. I was feeling panic.

He said that he could give me a movie part in an upcoming film with the implication being that I had to sleep with him in order to get it.

I was sitting on the bed talking to Harvey when he pushed me back and forced himself onto me. It was not consensual. He did not use a condom.”

Malthe is the second actress that Attorney Gloria Allred has introduced in two days and is pressing The Weinstein Co. to create a “substantial” fund to compensate alleged victims of sexual assault and harassment by the company’s former co-chairman.

Citing previous statements by The Weinstein Co. regarding justice for victims, Allred urged the film mogul’s former company to “put their money where their mouth is.”

Weinstein did not immediately respond to the latest claims but has always “unequivocally denied” allegations of non-consensual sex made against him.

Weinstein, 65, is the subject of criminal investigations in London, New York and Los Angeles and The Weinstein Company (TWC), which he co-founded, is the subject of a civil rights investigation.
