Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has now been accused of sexually assaulting an unnamed teen girl in 2002.
According to Page Six, Weinstein is being sued for allegedly assaulting the woman from Poland after setting up a “business lunch.” However, the lawsuit alleges things took a very dark turn in his apartment.
Page Six reported the following details:
“Weinstein threatened and pressured Jane Doe, saying that he had ‘made’ the careers of Penelope Cruz and Gwyneth Paltrow, and that neither would be working without him,” the suit alleges.
“He then took off his pants and forcibly held Jane Doe while taking her hand and making her touch and massage his penis,” the filing states.
Weinstein allegedly became enraged when the terrified teen objected and refused to let her leave — but eventually relented, the suit says.
It just keeps getting worse and worse for Weinstein as the allegations continue to pile up. He’s already facing criminal charges in New York on sexual assault allegations, and is even being sued for alleged sex trafficking. The avalanche against him just seems to have no end in sight.

It’s crazy to think about just how hard and fast Weinstein fell from grace. He was at one point in time one of the most powerful players in all of Hollywood. Now, he just got slapped with a lawsuit for allegedly assaulting a teenage girl. (RELATED: Federal Prosecutors Launch Investigation Into HarveyWeinstein For Disturbing Reason)
How much worse can it get? The sad thing is, I’m sure we haven’t found the bottom yet. The #MeToo movement might have no larger takedown than Weinstein. He could snap his fingers as little as two years ago and get any movie made. After all the allegations against him now, I doubt anybody would even pick up the phone.
We’ll have to wait and see how this all plays out. Weinstein is up to his eyes in trouble, and I’m sure it will only get worse for the former Hollywood power player.
