Harvey Weinstein has been accused of groping a 22-year-old woman and he has been questioned by the NYPD in response to the complaint.
The woman allegedly told cops that the 63-year-old movie producer touched her breasts and thighs while at the Tribeca Film Center in New York City on Friday night (March 27) at around 6pm.
“He initiated the contact,” a source told the New York Daily News. “He saw her and spoke to her. She didn’t know who he was until he approached her.”
Harvey has been questioned by police and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance will decide if charges will be filed against him.
“We believe this is a blackmail attempt, and he did nothing wrong,” a source close to the producer told Page Six.
