The author of the article noted that the story remained out of the limelight because "too many people in the intertwined news and entertainment industries had too much to gain from Mr. Weinstein for too long".

A former news anchor has come forward to accuse Harvey Weinstein of forcing her to watch him masturbate in the hallway of a restaurant.

'Well, can you just stand there and shut up, ' Weinstein allegedly told the anchor before he carried out his sex act.

When they got to the club, Weinstein reportedly asked Sivan if she wanted a tour. He has since taken an "indefinite" leave of absence from Weinstein Company and issued a freaky statement apologizing for his actions while simultaneously preparing to sue the Times for their report.

Weinstein quickly ejaculated into a potted plant near the vestibule leading to the kitchen, according to Sivan, and returned back to the nightclub after cleaning up.

Sivan is now just one of a number of people to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment, following a bombshell report from The New York Times that he had paid off accusers of sexual harassment for almost three decades. She said she was trapped by his body and was intimidated.

"The New York Times published today a story that is saturated with false and defamatory statements about Harvey Weinstein", attorney Charles J. Harder said in a statement.

Actresses Ashley Judd and Jessica Hynes say he sexually harassed them. Sivan said she was deeply shocked by Weinstein's behavior and was frozen and didn't know what to do or say. The only way for Sivan to get away from Weinstein required her to get past him and go through the kitchen. The incident in the vestibule didn't last long.

Once in the kitchen of the restaurant, Weinstein attempted to kiss Sivan, which she rejected explaining that she was in a long-term relationship.

Weinstein then proceeded to expose himself to Sivan and began to masturbate. She met both as they were headed up from the cafe and says that Sivan told her what happened right after they left the club.

Three members of The Weinstein Company board have quit and the married mogul, 65, is taking a leave of absence. She said she had gotten near "the end zone" once, only to bump up against the ultimate silencer: "fear".
