Harvey Weinstein sued for rape

Harvey Weinstein has been sued by actress who claims he raped her in 2016. The unnamed actress listed as Jane Doe has
filed a lawsuit, claiming that Weinstein masturbated in front of her in
2015 and raped her in 2016 at a hotel in Beverly Hills.

According
to the actress, she met Weinstein in 2011, after which he arranged a
meeting at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills in 2015 to talk about a
role on “Marco Polo.”
At
some point, Weinstein asked if he could masturbate in front of her, an
offer she says she declined. Following her refusal, the actress says
Weinstein grabbed her wrist with one hand while masturbating with his
other hand until he was done.

In
2016, the suit states that Weinstein contacted her, giving her the
impression that she had been cast in “Marco Polo,” and invited her to
the same hotel to celebrate.
During
their meeting, she claims that Weinstein dragged her into the bedroom
and “used his massive weight and strength to force himself on her,” and
raped her.
After he pulled out, he held her down while masturbating with the other hand.

“Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein,” a representative for the disgraced Hollywood producer said n a statement.
“Mr.
Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of
retaliation against any women for refusing his advances. Mr. Weinstein
obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any
women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes
that all of these relationships were consensual.”

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
