Since The New York Occasions revealed its piece on the many years of sexual harassment allegations which have been directed at now-former Weinstein Firm head Harvey Weinstein, increasingly folks have come ahead with tales of their very own—some about Weinstein, some not. At present, Cara Delevingne launched a press release about an interplay she had with Weinstein when she was simply beginning her appearing profession, and as anybody who has been following this story can in all probability guess, it’s all fairly horrifying. You’ll be able to see the complete assertion beneath:
Primarily, Weinstein contacted Delevingne and needled her about whether or not or not she was a lesbian, and since she refused to reply his questions, he defined that she’d by no means make it in Hollywood if she did come out as homosexual. A 12 months or so later, he allegedly confirmed up at a gathering she had and bragged in regards to the actresses whose careers he had made after they slept with him, and he obtained an assistant to persuade Delevingne to satisfy him in a resort room. There, she says Weinstein tried to pressure her to kiss one other girl, which she refused to do, and when she tried to go away, Weinstein allegedly tried to kiss her himself. She obtained away after that, and did get the function that the assembly was about, however she says she’s “felt terrible” about taking it since then.
Due to that, she closes her assertion by saying that it’s not somebody’s fault in the event that they get “harassed or abused or raped,” and that not speaking about it “will at all times trigger extra injury than talking the reality.”
