Harvey Weinstein has just been accused of another sexual assault. This time the disgraced Hollywood mogul is accused of sexually assaulting an underage girl.

According to Page Six:

An aspiring actress says she was a 16-year-old virgin when disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinsteinsexually assaulted her in New York, according to an amended Manhattan federal racketeering lawsuit filed Wednesday.

The woman, a former model from Poland identified only as Jane Doe in the court papers, said that after agreeing to meet for a business lunch in 2002, Weinstein instead took her to his Soho apartment.

“…Weinstein wasted no time in aggressively and threateningly demanding sex,” the suit alleges. He told the distraught starlet that if she wanted to be an actress she had to give in to his perverted desires.

“Weinstein threatened and pressured Jane Doe, saying that he had ‘made’ the careers of Penelope Cruz and Gwyneth Paltrow, and that neither would be working without him,” the suit alleges.

The story goes on to detail how Weinstein became enraged that the girl didn't comply with his demands going so far as to not let her leave. Weinstein reportedly relented but continued to pursue the model for the next decade.
