Harvey Weinstein, who is in the middle of a very fast-growing scandal of sexual harassment and generally disgusting behavior towards women, now must account for another bomb that just fell: an accusation that, about a decade ago, he sexually harassed and masturbated in front of a TV anchor.
The report also details how Sivan met Weinstein along with a few other people at a popular Italian restaurant in Manhattan and then rode with him to Socialista, a Cuban-themed club, and restaurant.
At this point, Weinstein and Sivan were in a vestibule between the kitchen and bathrooms. Sivan said that as soon as they were alone, Weinstein attempted to kiss her.
Weinstein Books announced in July that it would publish three books by Brzezinski, with the first, a revised edition of her bestseller "Knowing Your Value: Women, Money, and Getting What You're Worth", slated for release in spring 2018 and two more books in the series set for fall 2018.
Sivan told Huffington Post journalist Yashar Ali that Weinstein trapped her in a restaurant hallway and forced her to watch him masturbate until he ejaculated into a pot plant. "Cleanse yourselves", she wrote, presumably referring to Weinstein.

Days before that, Lombardo said Paddock rented a room overlooking another Las Vegas music festival, Life is lovely . Police recovered almost 50 firearms from three locations they searched, almost half of them from the hotel suite.
The NY Post is now floating the tantalizing idea that Weinstein's brother Bob (the brothers founded Miramax and later The Weinstein Company, churning out Oscar-winning or pop-culture-defining films like sex, lies and videotape, Pulp Fiction, Trainspotting, Shakespeare in Love, Good Will Hunting, The King's Speech, Silver Linings Playbook, and more) may have been involved the Times story.
Meanwhile, a British actress claimed that she was denied a role when she refused to de-robe for the creepy Weinstein. His attorney Lisa Bloom also resigned on Saturday, despite initially defending him after he retained her as an advisor. "Others did. Keep that in mind", she said in a previous tweet. The incident in the vestibule didn't last long.
"I hope Harvey gets the help he seeks", Rock writes, "but I do not buy any of it at this point as I believe he is only going down this path because he can not cover his own sh- up any longer".
But it didn't end there: Weinstein allegedly called Sivan the next day to say he'd had "a great time" and asked if she'd like to meet up with him once he was back from some travel. She has not interacted with Weinstein since the incident in 2007.
The Weinstein Company announced earlier Friday that Mr. Weinstein is on leave indefinitely pending the results of an independent probe.
