In response to several allegations made against Weinstein, including Evans’, in the New Yorker piece, a spokesperson for Weinstein said, “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.”

Evans said Weinstein first approached her at a New York club when she was a college student. She said he began calling her repeatedly and had an assistant call her until Evans agreed to meet with Weinstein at his Manhattan Miramax office.

Evans claimed she was led to a secluded office where she was alone with Weinstein, and he soon allegedly began to demean her while telling her about movie scripts.

“At that point, after that, is when he assaulted me,” Evans told New Yorker. “He forced me to perform oral sex on him.”

Harvey Weinstein Forced Out of His Own Company

  Harvey Weinstein Forced Out of His Own Company Harvey Weinstein has been forced out of the independent film company he co-founded and catapulted to Oscar glory, felled by a mushrooming sexual harassment scandal that has hobbled his status as a media mogul and left his future in Hollywood in jeopardy. The Weinstein Company’s board of directors has voted to remove Weinstein from the studio, leaving control of the company in the hands of Weinstein’s brother, Bob Weinstein, and chief operating officer David Glasser, it was announced in a statement from the company Sunday.

NYPD sources told CNN the department has no open investigations into Weinstein 's actions and no additional victims have come forward with accusations against him. "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein .

Movie mogul could face up to 25 years in jail on sexual assault charges if the latest abuse allegations are tried in criminal courts, say legal experts. Harvey Weinstein 'unequivocally denied' claims of non-consensual sex but apologised for causing 'pain' (Photo: Variety).

She added: “I just sort of gave up. That’s the most horrible part of it, and that’s why he’s been able to do this for so long to so many women: people give up, and then they feel like it’s their fault.”

In the years following the alleged assault, Evans said she was largely unable to talk about the incident — “I was disgusted with myself … It was always my fault for not stopping him,” she told the publication.

She said she developed “an eating problem” and concerned friends told her to seek help “because they thought I was going to kill myself.”

News of the investigation comes as the 65-year-old finds himself in the midst of an ongoing sexual harassment and abuse scandal with actresses including Cara Delevingne, Ashley Judd, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Angelina Jolie speaking out against Weinstein’s alleged behavior.

In a bombshell New York Times report last week, eight women accused him of acting inappropriately. The paper also reported that Weinstein reached private settlements with eight women, including actress Rose McGowan.
