MORE HARVEY WEINSTEIN SEX SCANDAL: FORMER FOX NEWS SPEAKS OUT AS ‘LADIES OF HOLLYWOOD’ DEAFENING SILENCE CONTINUES
Former Fox News reporter Lauren Sivan claims that Hollywood mogul and top Democrat Party contributor Harvey Weinstein masturbated into a plant pot in front of her after cornering her in a New York restaurant
( Daily Mail ) Former Fox News reporter Lauren Sivan told The Huffington Post on Friday that the influential producer once trapped her in the hallway of a restaurant during a private event and masturbated in front of her until he ejaculated.
‘Well, can you just stand there and shut up,’ Weinstein allegedly told the anchor before he carried out his sex act.
Sivan’s accusations come just one day after The New York Times published a bombshell story detailing Weinstein’s decades long pattern of allegedly harassing women.
Sivan claims the incident happened more than a decade ago, when she was an anchor on Long Island 12, a local news broadcast.
The former TV journalist said she remained silent over the years out of fear of retaliation due to Weinstein’s clout in the media industry.
According to Sivan, the incident occurred at a Manhattan nightclub called Socialista, connected to the well-known Italian restaurant Cipriani in 2007.

The actress, 44, who is one of Weinstein’s accusers, took to her Twitter page Friday evening to share some careful words to her famous comrades, writing: ‘Ladies of Hollywood, your silence is deafening.’
In October of last year, the ‘Charmed’ starlet came forward with claims saying she had been raped by an unnamed studio executive. In a tweet, she posted the hashtag #WhyWomenDontReport.’
She further explained: ‘Because my ex sold our movie to my rapist for distribution,’ followed by, ‘A (female) criminal attorney said because I’d done a sex scene in a film I would never win against the studio head.’
McGowan has yet to confirm the circulating New York Times report suggesting she was paid $100,000 in settlement by Weinstein following an undisclosed incident from the mid-1990’s.
