Brzezinski: Book Deal On Hold Unless Harvey Weinstein Resigns

At a time when Harvey Weinstein is surrounded by several sexual abuse claims, a news anchor has come forward and revealed how the Hollywood producer had masturbated in front of her in public decades ago. She had a friend with her, and "just before Sivan left, the friend told her that if she wasn't back in 10 minutes, she would come to check on her".

She called for Weinstein's resignation from the company, suggesting that he "face his sickness, and go into a long, self-imposed exile".

Sivan's accusations come just one day after The New York Times published a bombshell story detailing Weinstein's decades long pattern of allegedly harassing women.

"Not all that shocking because very similar things happened to me". 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". She said she was unable to escape easily because her exit was blocked by his body.

"We need more people in power - particularly men in power - to break the code of silence and stand up for what is right and what is just and challenge this culture of sexual harassment and assault against women". He suddenly exposed himself and began masturbating in front of her, and continued doing so until he ejaculated into a potted plant in the hall, she added.

The former TV journalist said she remained silent over the years out of fear of retaliation due to Weinstein's clout in the media industry. As they left, he leaned in to kiss Sivan.

But that all ended on Saturday, after she endured days of criticism for defending the kind of behavior she has been known to attack.

Weinstein's lawyer said in a statement this week that he plans to sue The New York Times.

Weinstein's attorney Lisa Bloom told the Huffington Post that the producer was not available for an interview about the allegations, and a Weinstein Company publicist reportedly did not reply to questions. There have been times they wouldn't speak for months. Sivan said she reluctantly agreed and they went downstairs to the restaurant.

The Weinstein Company announced Friday that Weinstein was going on an indefinite leave pending investigation of the sexual harassment claims by an independent law firm.
