Harvey Weinstein bragged about sleeping with Jennifer Lawrence after another actress rejected his advances, a lawsuit has alleged.
The latest allegation against the film producer emerged in court documents on Friday, with an unnamed woman claiming he forcibly performed oral sex on her.
Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
Claims that Weinstein intimated a sexual relationship with Lawrence surfaced in a lawsuit filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court by a woman identified only as :Jane Doe.
In a statement to TMZ, the Oscar winner revealed: ‘My heart breaks for all the women who were victimized by Harvey Weinstein…
I have never had anything but a professional relationship with him.’
The legal complaint alleges that Weinstein repeatedly made sexual advances on Jane Doe and bragged that he could help her land film roles
Jennifer Lawrence has said she was not “victimised personally” by Weinstein but wanted to “kill him” when she heard the claim from dozens of other women.
In a leaked email last week Weinstein told a group of close friends: “I’ve had one hell of a year…the worst nightmare of my life.”
The film producer is awaiting trial in New York, accused of rape, more than a year since women first came forward with allegations of sexual assault against him.
