Woman says Harvey Weinstein assaulted her in NYC

  • 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. "He held me down on the bed". I tried to get him off of me and kept asking him to stop but it was impossible. He was extremely persistent and physically overpowering. She said that while refusing Weinstein's sexual advances, she used her menstrual cycle as an excuse. He then pulled my tampon out - I was mortified.

Haleyi said the attack occurred during a visit to Weinstein's apartment in NY when she was in her 20s.

Sallie Hofmeister, a Weinstein spokeswoman, has previously denied claims, saying her client "unequivocally denies allegations of non-consensual sex".

Mimi Haleyi is on a list of people that NY officials are seeking to speak with in the ongoing investigation into allegations against Weinstein, according to law enforcement sources.

In Los Angeles, Dominique Huett, 35, will discuss her allegations that Weinstein coerced her into oral sex in a Beverly Hills hotel in 2010.

Asked if NYPD officials have reached out already to request a sit-down, Allred declined to answer. These are allegations made in statements, he said. A few days later, at his office, they spoke again, and he offered her a ride home, along with his assistant. "They'll decide for what goal", she said.

She continued, "Unfortunately it has taken this fixture in our industry and the news about his reprehensible behavior that happened within his business to allow us to all say now, 'Okay, this is serious'".

She said she finally managed to shut him down by sniping to him, "I'm not going to Paris with you, I hear you have a awful reputation with women".

"He wouldn't take no for an answer and backed me into a room which was not lit, but looked like a kids' bedroom with kids' drawings on the walls", said Haleyi, who was in her 20s at the time. She had first met Weinstein in 2004, she recalled, at the European premiere of the film The Aviator.

But Weinstein got in touch afterward and offered her a job on one of his TV productions in NY. When he suggested they go to his room, she thought the meeting would continue.

"I finally said, 'I'm not coming to Paris with you, and I hear you have a awful reputation with women.' That's when he backed off". She initially refused, but he was relentless and she ultimately agreed.

She said that she approached the Hollywood heavyweight at that time about doing some work on one of his sets, and he urged her to come meet him at his hotel so they could discuss the matter.

"I told him no, no, no but he insisted", she said, describing the sexual assault while seated beside Allred at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel on Madison Avenue.

Huett, who also appeared on "Megyn Kelly Today" Wednesday morning with fellow Weinstein accuser Mimi Haleyi, explained that she's coming forward now thanks to the other women who have shared their stories.

She's also finding solace in other women.
