Mr Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual'.

The woman allegedly met Weinstein in 2011 at a party in Los Angeles, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

According to to the actress, who goes by the name "Jane Doe" in the suit, she claims that she met the producer at a hotel in 2015 to discuss a role in the series Marco Polo. Weinstein allegedly kept in contact with the woman over the years, inviting her to industry events like parties and award shows. At some point during the meeting, the woman alleges that Weinstein excused himself and returned wearing only a bathrobe. Harvey allegedly grabbed her wrists and masturbated.

She again visited Weinstein at the Montage in 2016 to celebrate her upcoming role in the show "Marco Polo", the site said. She said she wasn't OK with that. The following spring, Doe says she met with him again under the impression she had been chosen for a part.

More than 50 women have claimed that Weinstein sexually harassed or assaulted them over the past three decades and Weinstein has been expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Weinstein allegedly pushed her onto the bed, pulled her trousers down and began to perform oral sex while she implored him to stop, according to TMZ. When the woman told him to stop, "Weinstein then used his massive weight and strength to force himself on her, pushing his penis inside of her vagina with out a condom", the complaint adds.

Police in London, New York and Los Angeles are investigating the producer who has been accused by dozens of women of sexual harassment and assault.

The woman, who says she never got the role on Marco Polo, is also suing The Weinstein Company, claiming the company was aware of that the producer had a pattern of using potential job opportunities to lure actresses into sex, and using violence to get his way. She claims after the mogul learned she was an actress he offered to assist her with her career and asked for her phone number.

The woman is suing Weinstein for damages and compensation for lost wages for the alleged sexual battery, as well as suing at The Weinstein Company (TWC), which has sacked the producer.

He is now under investigation by NYPD, LAPD, Scotland Yard and the Beverly Hills police.
