Mimi Haleyi Claims Harvey Weinstein Forcibly Performed Oral Sex On Her

Mimi Haleyi with attorney Gloria Allred

With her attorney Gloria Allred at her side, former production assistant Mimi Hayleyi described an alleged sexual assault that happened inside Weinstein's NY home a couple of years after she said she rebuffed his advances and accepted a job. She said she will seek resolution with Weinstein and his legal team after he returns from rehab.

Haleyi, who was flanked by the women's rights attorney Gloria Allred on Tuesday as she described her encounter, worked in her 20s as a production assistant on a television show produced by the Weinstein Company. She said Weinstein went to the bathroom and emerged wearing only a bathrobe, asked Huett for a massage and wouldn't take no for an answer, so she complied.

Allred said she has written to the Weinstein Company board, asking for a meeting.

"Her allegation appears to be beyond the statute of limitations", Allred said of Haleyi.

"I think that now that these conversations have begun, there's no way that we can go back to what the status quo has been for women in my industry", she added. She tried to deter him by telling him she was menstruating, but he persisted, she said. After she declined, "he showed up at her apartment twice in one day and "literally physically forced himself in through the door pleading with me to come with him to Paris", she said".

The letter also calls out those who witness sexual harassment and do nothing, dismissing it as "locker room talk" and encouraging other women to "smile and shrug it off" because that's what's needed to get ahead.

Also this week, actress Dominique Huett said Weinstein sexually abused her in 2010 in Beverly Hills and she sued his company for negligence, marking the first civil suit over his alleged abuses since the scandal came to light.

Haleyi had not reported her allegations to NYPD as of Tuesday afternoon, Allred told the New York Daily News.

Weinstein "was a complete gentleman" during that follow-up meeting, she recalled.

"Taking on a powerful guy like that is too much, it's too intimidating, so what we are seeing is a collective empowerment of women", Herman says. "I steered clear of him as soon as I could for the rest of the evening but soon forgot about it, until the New York Times and New Yorker pieces set off a landslide".

Her story is strikingly similar to those of more than 50 women who have claimed they were sexually harassed or assaulted by the disgraced film producer.

"Vague apologies are not enough".

"We know from reports from former employees that there were settlements the company was making and lawyers were involved and they were keeping it all confidential", Herman says.

More than 40 women have accused Weinstein of inappropriate behavior, ranging from sexual harassment to rape, since The New York Times first published an article exposing decades of Weinstein's alleged misdeeds.
