It is not about sex, it is about domination and control. That’s what the British actress Lysette Anthony tells us tonight, as she makes new allegations that she was raped more than once and sexually abused by the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
She is one of around 80 women alleging harassment, sexual assault or rape by Harvey Weinstein. He has always denied having non-consensual sex. He faces a criminal trial in the New Year centred around the allegations of two of the women. We put Ms Anthony’s new claims to him today and his representative told us that “allegations are not certainties.” They said that Mr Weinstein has the right to due process and the presumption of innocence in his upcoming trial. Our exclusive – and at times harrowing – extended interview with Lysette Anthony includes graphic details concerning her allegations which some people may find distressing.
