Lisa Bloom resigns as embattled movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's attorney

Lisa Bloom resigns as embattled movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's attorney

When the New York Times broke a bombshell investigation on Thursday recounting decades of alleged sexual harassment by film producing mogul Harvey Weinstein, the blowback against him was immediate and strong.

The report also details how Sivan met Weinstein along with a few other people at a popular Italian restaurant in Manhattan and then rode with him to Socialista, a Cuban-themed club, and restaurant.

Weinstein quickly ejaculated into a potted plant near the vestibule leading to the kitchen, according to Sivan, and returned back to the nightclub after cleaning up.

At the time, Sivan claims Weinstein attempted to kiss her, causing her to pull away and tell him she was in a relationship.

"Well, can you just stand there and shut up."

That was the last contact the two had.

The only way for Sivan, who was blocked by kitchen equipment, to exit the situation was to push past him and get to the hallway.

Harry last visited the Honeymoon Capital in 1991 along with his late mother Princess Diana and his brother Prince William . The 44th US president shared a laugh with the prince, posed for pictures with athletes and shook hands with spectators.

Weinstein is under fire after the New York Times documented decades of sexual harassment allegations against the Miramax founder, including at least eight that resulted in legal settlements.

Lisa previously defended her decision to represent Weinstein after even her own mother, lawyer Gloria Allred, spoke out against her client. Sivan said she was deeply shocked by Weinstein's behavior and was frozen and didn't know what to do or say. Weinstein then allegedly undid his trousers and started masturbating in front of her. The incident in the vestibule didn't last long.

Mr. Weinstein was not available to be interviewed for the Huffington Post's report, his attorney told the new site.

Weinstein and his brother Bob co-founded the indie film company Miramax in the late 1970s and grew into a powerhouse brand that made art-house films mainstream - and reshaped the Academy Awards race with aggressive marketing and buzz.The company was bought by Disney in 1993, where the brothers continued to run the company - and dominate the Oscar race - until they left in 2005 to launch the new privately held The Weinstein Company.He is now serving as producer on "The Current War", which is viewed as a solid contender for awards.

Following the allegations of sexual assault, Weinstein has reportedly taken an indefinite leave of absence from the Weinstein Company. Her clients Mischa Barton, Janice Dickinson and Black Chyna were victims of sexual harassment.

There may have been a taste for vengeance in the brother's fateful move, as another insider said, "Bob wanted Harvey to get what's coming to him".

Weinstein has denied "many of the accusations as patently false" through attorney Lisa Bloom. "I can't go forward with those books unless Harvey resigns", Brzezinski added.
