Harvey Weinstein & TWC Hit With Claims Of Sex Trafficking At Cannes 2014

Harvey Weinstein's latest accuser just held a news conference in which she described the alleged sexual attack in a hotel room.

But that was until Kadian Noble, an aspiring British actress, chose to sue both Harvey and his brother Bob, and the Weinstein Company under federal sex trafficking laws, in order to bring the movie mogul to the justice that his actions over the years, has deserved.

The complaint states that when the two both found themselves in France soon after, Weinstein 'asked Kadian to come to his hotel room to review her reel with her and discuss further steps in securing the role he had previously targeted for her'.

"He ejaculated all over the bathroom floor, and stepped over it as though nothing happened", said Noble, recalling how Weinstein was initially flattering and asking if the actress liked him.

According to the lawsuit, Weinstein "groomed" Noble with a "promise of a film role, knowing that he would use means of force, fraud or coercion to cause her to engage in a sex act". The TWC producer told [Noble] that she needed to be "a good girl and do whatever he wished", and if she did, then "they would work" with her further.

Dozens of women, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Lupita Nyong'o and Ashley Judd, have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, while actresses Asia Argento, Rose McGowan and others have accused the Oscar victor of raping them.

Instead, according to Kadian, Weinstein grabbed her breasts.

"Essentially under the statute, if a USA citizen goes to another country and uses force to entice a person to engage in a commercial sex act, they violate this law", Herman said.

After that, Noble claims she was allowed to leave and told by Weinstein that his people would be in touch with her about the role.

"The Weinstein company's board has maintained they were completely unaware of Harvey's crimes, claiming to be blindsided by the plethora of sexual misconduct allegations". "Harvey Weinstein ultimately forced Kadian into sexual acts". "So, it's a very creative use of the sex trafficking law". Employees even had code words communicating what they expected to occur, the lawsuit states.

'TWC employees knew to "take care" of the FOH's'.

Weinstein spokesperson is still keen on claiming that "any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

Noble's contact with Weinstein "was of tremendous significance to the future of her acting career", since Weinstein was "a gatekeeper of enormous influence in the entertainment industry, and had the power to advance her career exponentially through auditions, readings, introductions and consideration for roles, in addition to roles in [The Weinstein Company] projects", states the complaint.
