Harvey Weinstein masturbated in front of a former Fox News reporter?

Harvey Weinstein arrives at the Oscars on Sunday Feb. 22 2015 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles

A day after the New York Times published a revelatory report about allegations of sexual harassment made against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, another woman has stepped forward to accuse him of misconduct.

According to Sivan, the incident took place at Cafe Socialista, a Cuban-themed club and restaurant that Weinstein had invested in at the time.

Winstein reportedly called Sivan the next day to say he "had a great time last night" and to try to arrange a date, but Sivan ended the conversation quickly by reminding the Hollywood producer that she had a boyfriend. "Others did. Keep that in mind", she said in a previous tweet.

Weinstein is under fire after the New York Times documented decades of sexual harassment allegations against the Miramax founder, including at least eight that resulted in legal settlements. As they reached the kitchen area, Weinstein saw a few staffers working in the kitchen.

"Sivan said she was deeply shocked by Weinstein's behavior and was frozen and didn't know what to do or say", reports HuffPo. "While I would not represent Mr. Weinstein, I would consider representing anyone who accused Mr. Weinstein of sexual harassment, even if it meant that my daughter was the opposing counsel", she said.

Las Vegas shooter reportedly wired $100K to Philippines
The Daily Mail newspaper in the United Kingdom published several photos taken in Paddock's room after the shooting. The Las Vegas shooter's girlfriend says in a statement that she knew him "as a kind, caring, quiet man".

A friend of Sivan's who was interviewed for the article and who was there at Socialista on the night told HuffPo that she'd said to Sivan that if she didn't come back from her trip with Weinstein in 10 minutes, she'd come looking for her. Weinstein then allegedly undid his trousers and started masturbating in front of her.

Once Sivan and Weinstein exited the kitchen, however, she and her friend left the club immediately, at which point Sivan said she recounted the events to her friend. The incident in the vestibule didn't last long.

"The investigating lawyers will be reporting to a special committee of the board composed exclusively of independent directors", said a statement signed by his brother, Bob Weinstein, and three other board members. In a passage that matches many women's accounts of sexual harassment, "She remained quiet because she was in a long-term relationship and fearful of the power that Weinstein wielded in the media". She has not interacted with the movie mogul since. "Only possible now because of women with bigger names far braver than me", Ms. Sivan tweeted Saturday.

As for Weinstein, who has taken a leave of absence for therapy treatment?
