Who Is Lauren Sivan? Harvey Weinstein Allegedly Masturbated In Front Of Reporter

Posted October 09, 2017

Bloom had been advising the film producer, who The New York Times reported this week has been accused of sexual harassment by several women, about how to better his behavior.

The HuffPo article alleges that the incident occurred ten years ago, when Sivan was a news anchor on a NY local cable channel. He has since taken an "indefinite" leave of absence from Weinstein Company and issued a freaky statement apologizing for his actions while simultaneously preparing to sue the Times for their report. While the publicist acknowledged receiving the questions, multiple attempts to get a response were unsuccessful.

Sivan quickly ended the phone conversation, reminding Weinstein that she had a boyfriend.

According to Sivan, Weinstein took her to a Cuban-themed club called Socialista.

Sivan provided the story to HuffPost in an on-record interview.

In a 2001 profile of Weinstein in New York Magazine, journalist David Carr noted that while sitting at a table, Weinstein had "three Diet Cokes on standby in front of him".

A spokeswoman confirmed that both Cipriani and Weinstein have been friends for many years. "Just before Sivan left, [a] friend told her that if she wasn't back in 10 minutes, she would come to check on her". "Let's just say they have an "inconsistent" relationship". As they reached the kitchen area, Weinstein saw a few staffers working in the kitchen.

After Sivan rejected his advances, stating that she had a long-term boyfriend, Weinstein allegedly began to masturbate in front of her until he ejaculated into a potted plant, before zipping his pants up and returning to the party. However, she rejected his advances to which Weinstein said to her: "Well, can you just stand there and shut up".

While Sivan has remained silent about the incident out of fear of retaliation from Weinstein, who has tremendous power in Hollywood, her friend who was also at the event has collaborated her story with The Huffington Post. She released a statement on the same day of the article's publication defending her continued support of Weinstein, calling him an "old dinosaur learning new ways" who wanted to learn from his mistakes.

A Democratic senator says it "probably makes sense" for all arms of the party that have received contributions from disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein to return it or donate it to charity. "Sivan said she reluctantly agreed and they went downstairs to the restaurant", HuffPo reports.

She called for Weinstein to "resign from his companies, face his sickness, and go into a long, self-imposed exile". Sivan says Weinstein ejaculated quickly into a potted plant that was in the vestibule and then proceeded to zip up his trousers and they walked back into the kitchen. While in the kitchen, Weinstein told two employees to leave.
