At Cafe Socialista, Weinstein offered Sivan a tour, which she reluctantly accepted after telling a friend to come and get her if she wasn't back in "ten minutes".

Sivan told Huffington Post journalist Yashar Ali that Weinstein trapped her in a restaurant hallway and forced her to watch him masturbate until he ejaculated into a pot plant. As they left, he leaned in to kiss Sivan.

That was the last contact the two had.

That settlement is one of eight that Weinstein has reportedly paid out over the past 30 years, with Italian model Ambra Battilana also getting an undisclosed sum in 2015 after accusing the Hollywood executive of groping her and putting his hand under her skirt.

Meanwhile, organizers of the Outfest UCLA Legacy Project's annual Legacy Awards - the LGBTQ group's gala fundraiser honoring entertainment industry figures who "made a profound and lasting impact on LGBT storytelling and the LGBT community" - announced The Weinstein Company would no longer be honored at the October 22 ceremony. In a passage that matches many women's accounts of sexual harassment, "She remained quiet because she was in a long-term relationship and fearful of the power that Weinstein wielded in the media".

Weinstein and his brother Bob co-founded the indie film company Miramax in the late 1970s and grew into a powerhouse brand that made art-house films mainstream - and reshaped the Academy Awards race with aggressive marketing and buzz.The company was bought by Disney in 1993, where the brothers continued to run the company - and dominate the Oscar race - until they left in 2005 to launch the new privately held The Weinstein Company.He is now serving as producer on "The Current War", which is viewed as a solid contender for awards.

Weinstein has denied "many of the accusations as patently false" through attorney Lisa Bloom.

After the incident, Sivan claimed that Weinstein called her office the next day to tell her he "had a great time last night". "Others did. Keep that in mind".

"Sivan said she was deeply shocked by Weinstein's behavior and was frozen and didn't know what to do or say", reports HuffPo. Sivan says Weinstein ejaculated quickly into a potted plant that was in the vestibule and then proceeded to zip up his trousers and they walked back into the kitchen.

Rose McGowan shared a cryptic tweet not long after Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexually harassing multiple female employees and movie stars.

According to the report, the Miramax co-founder called Sivan the next day to tell her that he had a good time and invited her to meet with him again.

When she rebuffed the movie mogul, he simply began to pleasure himself.

The Weinstein Company announced Friday that Weinstein was going on an indefinite leave pending investigation of the sexual harassment claims by an independent law firm.
