A 22-year-old woman filed a sexual assault complaint against big-time producer Harvey Weinstein this weekend, according to Page Six.
The woman told police that the famed producer grabbed her breasts and touched her thigh around 6 p.m. Friday at the Tribeca Film Center, sources said.
"He asked if they [her breasts] were real," a police source said of the woman's complaint.
The woman said that Weinstein grabbed her breast, and she said "no," to make him stop, the source said. Afterward, she walked into the 1st Precinct to file a complaint.
Weinstein has been questioned by police, and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance will determine whether to file charges, a police source told NY Daily News. Sources close to Weinstein said, "We believe this is a blackmail attempt, and he did nothing wrong."
Hm. Pretty sure if it was a blackmail attempt, she would have asked for money before going to the police. But, you know. Anything's possible in the tiny universe of a very powerful man.
