New allegations of sexual misconduct have emerged against powerful Hollywood movie executive Harvey Weinstein.
The incident took place a decade ago, according to Lauren Sivan, who at the time was a news anchor on a local cable channel in New York, Long Island 12. She later rode with him and others to Socialista, a Cuban-themed club and restaurant in which Weinstein and Giuseppe Cipriani, who was then the head of the Cipriani restaurant empire, were investors. Sivan, who was shocked by the entire incident, said Weinstein had called her at her office the next day to tell her "he had a great time last night".
'Well, can you just stand there and shut up, ' Weinstein allegedly told the anchor before he carried out his sex act. Weinstein then allegedly undid his trousers and started masturbating in front of her. Sivan told the Post that Weinstein was blocking her exit through the kitchen, saying she was "trapped by [his] body and was intimidated".
Scary, disgusting, terrible stuff from a very powerful Hollywood producer.

Microsoft Corporation Is Killing Groove Music, Asks Users To Move To Spotify
It will not, however, be migrating playlists, so you'll probably be wanting to think about how you're going to recreate those. Spotify is bigger than Groove Music and offers larger portfolio, users will have no problem in switching to this new service.
While Sivan has remained silent about the incident out of fear of retaliation from Weinstein, who has tremendous power in Hollywood, her friend who was also at the event has collaborated her story with The Huffington Post. Weinstein later left through the kitchen, she said. At Cafe Socialista, Weinstein offered Sivan a tour, which she reluctantly accepted after telling a friend to come and get her if she wasn't back in "ten minutes". Sivan says Weinstein ejaculated quickly into a potted plant that was in the vestibule and then proceeded to zip up his trousers and they walked back into the kitchen.
The latest allegation comes on the heels of a bombshell New York Times report claiming Weinstein has been paying off sexual harassment accusers for decades.
Sivan's friend, who wished to remain anonymous, reiterated the details of the night to The Huffington Post, who was told about the incident immediately after the two left the club. "Next steps will depend on Harvey's therapeutic progress, the outcome of the Board's independent investigation, and Harvey's own personal decisions", a statement signed by four board members, Bob Weinstein, Tarak Ben Ammar, Lance Maerov and Richard Koenigsberg read. "I'm not defending him in any sexual harassment cases - there aren't any sexual harassment cases".
