One of Hollywood's biggies, Harvey Weinstein would never have imagined that one day more than 30 women would stand together, and accuse him of sexual harassment and molestation. It took one report by the New York Times and the New Yorker for many Hollywood celebs to open up against this inexcusable and wildly disturbing (yet well known) monstrosity, which has a place of its own in the dictionary à la "casting couch".
Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, Cara Delevingne —and many, many others reported harrowing cases (that spanned almost thirty years!) of their encounters with the producer. He reportedly invited women to hotel rooms for business reasons and then greeted them nude or asked them to massage him or watch him shower.
The story is still not over though, and a fresh allegation has been made against him which involves Bollywood's most prized jewel—Aishwarya Rai Bachchan!
British supermodel and actor Cara Delevingne courageously revealed her chilling case in an Instagram post—
—which was reported by Variety. The comments section of their story included this comment by Simone Sheffield, a renowned talent manager, TV and film producer who incidentally also managed Aishwarya Rai during her brief Hollywood stint. Simone revealed in her comment that the sex offender had tried to get to Aishwarya as well whom he had met several times in the past, during AmFar Gala and the Cannes International Film Festival.
Even though there has been no discussion from Aishwarya Rai in this regard, the allegations seem to be getting deeper day by day, and Harvey Weinstein has some serious explaning to do. For now, Mr. Weinstein has been fired by the company he co-founded, the Weinstein Company.
