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

Disgraced Weinstein hit by new sex attack lawsuit

Noble has claimed the disgraced producer sexually assaulted her in France during the 2014 Cannes Film Festival - coercing her into sexual activity in return for "a film role or influence in his behalf".

Aspiring British actress Kadian Noble has filed an 11-page complaint against Weinstein, which also names his brother, Bob Weinstein, and The Weinstein Company as defendants.

She says in 2014, they were in Cannes and he asked her to come to his hotel room.

At that point, Weinstein "pulled Kadian closer and groped her breasts" according to the suit, despite the plaintiff's protests.

She said she saw Weinstein several times since but after the last meeting in May a year ago, again at Le Majestic, she told the executive assistant in London her sexual assault allegation.

She added that her decision was not motivated by money, but "just the freedom of expressing and saying to him what he's done, it just ruins people's lives".

The lawsuit accuses Weinstein of "knowingly recruiting or enticing Kadian, offering her something of value, knowing that he would use this offer as a means to defraud, force or coerce her into a sexual encounter".

Noble says she met with Weinstein in London three months before the alleged attack in France. An excited Noble, eager to share her show reel with Weinstein, brought her iPad along as the two went upstair.

As per Friedman's opinion, he told People that Noble's lawyers will "be very aggressive and take discoveries as soon as possible, which would mean taking depositions of the Weinstein brothers and their company".

There is a statute of limitations of five years when it comes to civil sexual assault claims.

Weinstein spokesperson is still keen on claiming that "any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein". "TWC employees knew to "take care" of the FOH's", the filing claims.

Noble's complaint calls The Weinstein Company complicit in this activity, since it either knew or "was in reckless disregard of the facts" that Weinstein recruited young female actors to visit him, sometimes via interstate or global travel, under false pretenses, promising an acting opportunity and then coercing or forcing sexual activity. It further states, "TWC knowingly participated in Harvey Weinstein's venture in violation of 18 U.S.C. ยง1591 (the sex trafficking statute) by benefiting from, and knowingly facilitating, the venture in which Harvey Weinstein traveled in foreign commerce to recruit or entice female actors into forced or coerced sexual encounters on the promise of roles in films or entertainment projects", as reported by Deadline. "Mr Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances".
