British actress Kadian Noble accuses Harvey and Bob Weinstein of sex trafficking

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

"Harvey Weinstein actively had no intention of following through with his promise of a role., " the lawsuit said.

MEDIA mogul Harvey Weinstein is being sued under sex trafficking laws by a British actress who claims he assaulted her in Cannes.

Producer Harvey Weinstein speaks at the ceremony for the unveiling of the star for Italian composer Ennio Morricone on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood, California February 26, 2016. In a statement issued, a Directors Guild of America's spokesperson said, 'Harvey Weinstein resigned from his membership from the Directors Guild of America effective today.' They have denied to further comment on the matter. She cried out for him to stop, but Weinstein undressed her and forced her to perform sexual acts on him.

Noble also was made to get on the phone with a person she was told was an executive she claims, with that man instructing her to be 'a good girl and do whatever he wished'.

'Despite such knowledge, Bob Weinstein, as an executive of TWC, continued to pay for and facilitate these foreign trips for Harvey Weinstein'.

Last week, actress Uma Thurman suggested she too had been a victim of sexual harassment, writing on her Instagram page that Weinstein didn't "deserve a bullet".

Noble said Weinstein approached her during the film festival and invited her to his room to watch her audition reel, only to begin allegedly assaulting her. "He was someone that I thought was going to make my dream a reality", Noble said of her former thoughts of the mogul.

Hollywood and beyond have been rocked by the scandal, with producer Harvey Weinstein now under police investigation for a wide range of sexual misconduct allegations.

"Everything will be taken care of for you if you relax."

According to Noble's lawsuit, it was "common practice" of Weinstein and "well-known" to his brother Bob Weinstein that Harvey Weinstein would travel overseas and to different states to recruit, solicit and entice young female actresses with promises of film roles only to then use force, fraud or coercion to engage them in sex.

She is now demanding a jury trial and unspecified damages in the suit, which also names Harvey's brother Bob and The Weinstein Company as co-defendants.

At that point, Weinstein "pulled Kadian closer and groped her breasts" according to the suit, despite the plaintiff's protests. "Mr Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances".
