When Sandeep Rehal initially took a task as Harvey Weinstein’s assistant in 2013, she stated he informed her that he was “a tough guy and hard to work for.” That might suggest lots of things: Long hours, a lot of coffee runs, or requiring excellence in keeping schedules and other expert tasks. In a brand-new suit, Rehal claims that her 2 years at the Weinstein Company went beyond “tough,” and well into the world of hostile and violent.
According to the suit (which you can check out in its whole at The Hollywood Reporter), “Much of Ms. Rehal’s work as an employee of TWC involved catering to Harvey Weinstein’s sexual appetites and activities, and catering to his demeaning and often abusive family members. Ms. Rehal was required to be involved in and aware of the preparations for, and clean up after, Harvey Weinstein’s extremely prolific sexual encounters.”
Among the most abhorrent jobs she states she was needed to perform are:
Throughout her work with Defendants Ms. Rehal was needed, as a condition of her work, to deal with Harvey Weinstein when he was naked. On a nearly weekly basis, she was needed to take dictation of e-mails from him while he was naked.
Harvey Weinstein subjected Mr. Rehal to undesirable touching. Nearly whenever Ms. Rehal accompanied Harvey Weinstein in his chauffeured Lexus SUV, he made her being in the back with him and touched her thigh. After Ms. Rehal began using trousers rather of skirts, Harvey Weinstein would rub in between her thighs. When Ms. Rehal sat cross legged in an effort to avoid him from having the ability to touch her thigh, Harvey Weinstein would touch the back of her legs and butt.
If this made you wish to hork, go get a pail due to the fact that exactly what follows is favorably Caligulaic (not a genuine word, however no other expression in the English language can catch exactly what you’re about to check out).
In addition to keeping his list of offered ladies, Ms. Rehal was required to do lots of other offending tasks to “assist” in Harvey Weinstein’s sex life. She was needed to handle the stock of Caverject shots for his impotence. She needed to get the shots and keep them equipped in cabinet behind her desk at Harvey Weinstein’s TWC workplace. Whenever Harvey Weinstein went to satisfy a lady at a hotel, in the workplace, or somewhere else, which took place typically a minimum of 3 times a week when he remained in New York, Ms. Rehal was needed as part of her task to offer Harvey Weinstein with a shot, which she positioned in his coat pocket or in a brown paper bag.
Wait, that’s not the most sickening part. THIS is:
Another “task” Ms. Rehal was required to do to assist Harvey Weinstein’s sexual encounters was to tidy up the semen on the sofa in Harvey Weinstein’s workplace. This took place regularly, 3 approximately times a week when Harvey Weinstein remained in New York.
I’m not exactly sure exactly what’s more unbelievable: That a male would anticipate somebody to do this at all, or that he believed that he would constantly get away with it.
In the filing (which likewise names the Weinstein Company and Harvey Weinstein’s sibling, Bob, as accuseds), Rehal declares that Weinstein’s habits was popular within the business, which he often– in the workplace– would call her a “cunt” or a “pussy.” One of his preferred concerns, Rehal states, was “What’s wrong, Sandeep? Is the tampon up too far today?”
A Weinstein spokesperson informed The Hollywood Reporter, “Mr. Weinstein categorically denies these claims and his lawyers will respond in the appropriate legal forum with evidence proving they are untrue.”
Rehal and her lawyers are asking that Harvey and Bob Weinstein, in addition to the Weinstein Company, deal with a trial by jury in New York federal court, which she be rewarded damages to be identified at trial.Related youtube video: (not from post)
