Actress Accuses Harvey Weinstein Of Sex Trafficking In New Lawsuit

Noble is seeking unspecified damages, accusing Weinstein of being able "to force or coerce" her into sexual activity in his hotel room by promising her a film role and to wield his influence on her behalf.

But that was until Kadian Noble, an aspiring British actress, chose to sue both Harvey and his brother Bob, and the Weinstein Company under federal sex trafficking laws, in order to bring the movie mogul to the justice that his actions over the years, has deserved.

The 31-year-old said Weinstein approached her at the Majestic Hotel during the film festival in Cannes, France, inviting her upstairs to his room to watch her audition reel.

The movie mogul groped her breasts and rubbed her vagina before grabbing Noble's hand and forcing her into a sex act, the actress recounted Tuesday.

According to the complaint, as Noble fought back Weinstein told her, "Everything will be taken care of for you if you relax".

More than 80 women have accused Weinstein of unwanted advances and sexual assault, including six charging they were raped by the Hollywood hotshot.

When the horrifying ordeal was over, Weinstein allegedly told her "his people" would be in touch with her.

Police in New York, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and London have confirmed are investigating allegations of sexual assault that have been made against Weinstein.

Weinstein "blocked her exit" next according to court papers and 'pulled down Kadian's shirt, revealing her breasts, and unbuckled his trousers and belt'. An excited Noble, eager to share her show reel with Weinstein, brought her iPad along as the two went upstair. She says Weinstein told her at the time that he had a film role in mind for her.

Harvey Weinstein has been accused by dozens of women of sexual abuse, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, and Mira Sorvino.

The Weinstein Company did not reply to a request for comment from HuffPost.

'Upon information and belief, the code word among TWC employees "FOH", meant "Friend of Harvey", and referred to a young woman who had participated in sex in exchange for a role or position in an upcoming project, ' states the court filing.

Bob meanwhile is said to have "been privy to multiple claims in which such acts and conduct were alleged against Harvey Weinstein, prior to February, 2014" in the complaint. "In an apparent attempt to entice KADIAN into sex with Harvey Weinstein, an unnamed TWC producer told Kadian that she needed to be "a good girl and do whatever [he] wished", and if she did, then 'they will work with [her] further'".

The company violated USA sex trafficking law by "benefiting from, and knowingly facilitating, the venture in which Harvey Weinstein traveled in foreign commerce to recruit or entice female actors into forced or coerced sexual encounters on the promise of roles", states the lawsuit.
