More abuse allegations against movie mogul
NEW YORK (AP):
An avalanche of allegations poured out Tuesday against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
On-the-record reports detailed claims of sexual abuse and included testimonies from Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, further intensifying the already explosive collapse of Weinstein.
Three women accused him of raping them in a story published online by The New Yorker, including the Italian actress Asia Argento and a woman who was an aspiring actress in college when she caught Weinstein's eye.
A representative for the mogul vehemently denied the allegations in a statement to the magazine.
In a follow-up to its earlier exposE, The New York Times also reported Tuesday that many other actresses have in recent days added to the chorus of accusations surrounding Weinstein.
Paltrow described Weinstein's attempt to lure her, then 22, into giving him a massage in a hotel room. The incident prompted her then-boyfriend Brad Pitt to angrily confront Weinstein at a film premiere.
