LAPD Investigating Harvey Weinstein on New Rape Claim

By TheBlast Staff

Harvey Weinstein is under investigation by the LAPD after a woman claimed the disgraced producer raped her in a hotel room in 2013.

According to the LA Times, the 38-year-old Italian model-actress met with investigators Thursday morning for more than two hours.

The Blast has confirmed the LAPD did interview a potential victim of sexual assault, and the suspect is Harvey Weinstein.

The woman reportedly said the assault occurred at the Mr. C Beverly Hills hotel during the 8th Annual Los Angeles, Italia Film, Fashion and Art Fest.

The Times spoke with the woman, who said "He grabbed me by the hair and forced me to do something I did not want to do. He then dragged me to the bathroom and forcibly raped me."

The woman says she begged Weinstein to stop, and even showed her pictures of her children to try and end the assault.

Weinstein is also under investigation in New York, where a woman claims he sexually assaulted her in 2004.

A rep for Weinstein tells us “Mr. Weinstein obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but he unequivocally denies allegations of non-consensual sex.”
