Lauren Sivan, a TV journalist, is the latest woman to come forward with allegations about Hollywood super producer Harvey Weinstein.

According to Sivan, the incident took place at Cafe Socialista, a Cuban-themed club and restaurant that Weinstein had invested in at the time.

According to Sivan, Weinstein then undressed and masturbated in front of her, zipped his trousers back and left the place.

At the time, Sivan claims Weinstein attempted to kiss her, causing her to pull away and tell him she was in a relationship. "While I would not represent Mr. Weinstein, I would consider representing anyone who accused Mr. Weinstein of sexual harassment, even if it meant that my daughter was the opposing counsel", she said.

When they got to the club, Weinstein reportedly asked Sivan if she wanted a tour. While in the kitchen, Weinstein told two employees to leave.

McGowan has yet to confirm the circulating New York Times report suggesting she was paid $100,000 in settlement by Weinstein following an undisclosed incident from the mid-1990's.

After the incident, Sivan claimed that Weinstein called her office the next day to tell her he "had a great time last night". In a text message, Lisa Bloom, Weinstein's attorney, said Weinstein was not available for an interview.

The NY Post is now floating the tantalizing idea that Weinstein's brother Bob (the brothers founded Miramax and later The Weinstein Company, churning out Oscar-winning or pop-culture-defining films like sex, lies and videotape, Pulp Fiction, Trainspotting, Shakespeare in Love, Good Will Hunting, The King's Speech, Silver Linings Playbook, and more) may have been involved the Times story.

The night of the incident started with Sivan meeting Weinstein and others at Cipriani, a well-known Italian restaurant in Manhattan.

Sivan claims he exposed himself to her, masturbated and ejaculated into a nearby potted plant. 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.

"I hope Harvey gets the help he seeks", Rock writes, "but I do not buy any of it at this point as I believe he is only going down this path because he can not cover his own sh- up any longer". She said he invited her to meet with him again, but she reiterated her earlier statement of being in a relationship and ended the call.
