Harvey Weinstein allegedly m@sturbated in front of a massage therapist, according to testimony.
A certified massage therapist testified before a jury, detailing her gruesome claims that Harvey Weinstein had s*xually harassed her and masturbated in front of her during business meetings.
Variety says that Jane Doe #3 claimed that the first time she worked with Weinstein as a client, he abruptly changed his friendly demeanor during a massage, trapping her in a hotel bathroom, m@sturbating in front of her, touching her breasts, and cursing at her.
“He said: ‘Look at me, tell me how big my cock is. Look at me! Look at me! Fucking look at me!’” Jane Doe #3 testified, raising her voice on the stand, as to intimate the tone in which Weinstein spoke to her.
As she started to tear up, she told the jury that she kept telling Weinstein “no” and “tried backing away from his as far as possible”. But he kept saying: “Look at my c***. Tell me how big my c*** is.”
“I was terrified,” she said. “I thought I was about to get r@ped. Jane Doe #3 is a massage therapist for high-profile individuals, working almost exclusively with a clientele of A-list celebrities.
She indicated to the jury that because of the nature of her work as a masseuse, it was usual for her to give a customer a massage in the seclusion of their house or in a hotel room.
When she arrived, clients were frequently practically naked, wearing nothing but a bathrobe.
Nothing seemed “peculiar” when the woman checked into Weinstein’s hotel room at the Montage in Beverly Hills, California, in 2010, she said “I’ve done plenty of massages in hotel rooms.”
She remarked that when Weinstein first arrived for the hour-long massage he had scheduled, he was “extremely kind” and “quite personable.” Nothing was s*xual, and she was “flattered” by his compliments about the way she gave massages.
However, he abruptly halted the massage after about 40 minutes, which surprised Jane Doe #3. She stated that she intended to pack up her massage table and leave, so she went to the hotel restroom to wash her hands.
