Harvey Weinstein's latest accuser just held a news conference in which she described the alleged sexual attack in a hotel room.
The lawsuit alleges that she was first asked to show him her showreel, during which he began to massage her and told her that if she was "a good girl" and did "whatever he wished" then "they would work" together, before forcing her into a bathroom and sexually assaulting her. "Harvey Weinstein traveled in foreign commerce, knowingly recruiting or enticing Kadian offering her something of value, knowing that he would use this offer as a means to defraud, force or coerce her into a sexual encounter, the complaint adds".
The case could have major consequences for Weinstein because several of his alleged assaults on actresses occurred overseas.
"There's a slang saying that goes, 'convict and collect, ' " Friedman told People magazine.
As for Kadian herself, her recount of the harrowing experience with Weinstein is extremely similar to the other 50 plus women who have come forward with their tales of horror with the producer.
