BFI London Film Festival Opening CeremonyMarch 30, 2015- We reluctantly give this story life since there has been no arrest, but it is out there. The NY Daily News reports, “Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is being accused of groping a 22-year-old Italian model on the opening weekend of his Radio City “New York Spring Spectacular,” police sources said Monday.

The model told cops that the Oscar-winning Hollywood producer sexually abused her after coaxing her to his Manhattan office on the pretense of talking business, sources told the Daily News.

The woman told cops that Weinstein — a married, 63-year-old father of five — groped her private area and her breasts around 6 p.m. Friday in his third-floor office at the Tribeca Film Center on Greenwich St., the sources said.

“He asked if her breasts were real before touching them,” a police source said. “She asked him to stop and he put his hand up her skirt. He asked for a kiss, she responded ‘No.’”

Weinstein has been questioned by police and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance will determine whether to file charges, a police source said.

She initially met Weinstein on Thursday — the same day Weinstein attended the red carpet opening of The Rockettes’ “New York Spring Spectacular” that he co-produced at Radio City.”
