Harvey Weinstein accuser describes ‘disgusting’ encounter: He ‘began pleasuring himself’ (video)

Megyn Kelly opened her show Monday with a tour-de-force interview with Lauren Sivan, a reporter who came forward to accuse Hollywood titan Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct.

“He immediately exposed himself, and began pleasuring himself and I just stood there dumbfounded,” Sivan told Kelly after breaking her silence to journalist Yashar Ali over the weekend. “I was so shocked. I could not believe what I was witnessing. It was disgusting and kind of pathetic really.”

In a tense retelling, Sivan described how Weinstein had lured her into the kitchen of a restaurant he owned, blocked the door, and masturbated in front of her.

“He cornered me in this vestibule. He leaned in and tried to kiss me, which I immediately rebuffed, and said, wow wow wow, I had no idea what this was. I’m sorry, I have a very serious boyfriend and I am not interested and I thought it would end there. But that’s when he blocked the entrance, or exit for me. and said, ‘Well then just stand there and be quiet.’ And that’s when I realized,” she said.

Kelly is no stranger to the subject. While a star anchor at Fox News, she reported to investigators that then-CEO Roger Ailes had sexually harassed her and helped put an end to his career at the network.

According to a bombshell report from the New York Times, Weinstein has settled sexual harassment suits with at least eight different women over the course of his decades long career.
