Video of Weinstein's hands-on meeting with rape accuser airs on Sky News

Harvey Weinstein Accuser Releases Video of Creepy Business Meeting Before Alleged Rape

The footage, given to by United Kingdom -based Sky News, shows a 2011 meeting in New York City in which Melissa Thompson, then 28 years old, is pitching her web video and analytics start-up to the Hollywood producer for the Weinstein Company.

The video shows Melissa Thompson, one of three women now suing Weinstein for sexual assault, pitching her tech startup to the movie mogul at The Weinstein Company offices in 2011. A few hours after, at his hotel room a few blocks away, Thompson said Weinstein raped her.

Video footage emerged Wednesday showing disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein apparently sexually harassing a woman who subsequently accused him of rape.

The video aired Wednesday by Sky News was recorded by Melissa Thompson when she met Weinstein at his office in 2011.

Weinstein is seen on the video rejecting a handshake from Thompson and then hugging her instead and rubbing her back.

In the video, she can be heard telling Weinstein: "Data's so hot, right?" The sexual assault survivor released a recording, shown by Sky News that was filmed in 2011. "Brafman says, ". the video, when viewed in its entirety, in context and not in select excerpts, demonstrates that there is nothing forceful, but casual - if not awkward - flirting from both parties".

Instead it recorded an excruciating encounter with the man who now faces criminal charges of sexual assault in a NY court, as well as scores... Thompson says she was expecting to meet with the Weinstein Company's marketing team, but instead found herself in a room with just Weinstein himself. "It's okay, would you like to do it some more?"

Thompson, then 28, responds: "Ummm we'll see, a little bit".

When she arrived to the hotel, Thompson said, Weinstein lead her away from the lobby and into the hotel; she believed he was taking her to a conference room.

The video was taken as part of a demo for a video platform that her start-up company was offering. "His eyes became dark", she said.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's First Royal Tour Details Revealed
Harry, 33, and Meghan, 37, will spend time in the cities of Sydney, Dubbo, Melbourne and Fraser Island while on the continent. Kensington Palace has released more details surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's trip to Australia next month.

In the footage, Weinstein invites Thompson to join him at the Tribeca Grand Hotel lobby restaurant.

"If he would make a comment, I would try to catch it and return it in a way that felt a little safer than the way he threw it at me".

"We believe that the People's response in its entirety makes it absolutely clear that the case against Mr. Weinstein can not be successfully prosecuted", said Brafman in a statement to Deadline. Thompson is a major player in the class action lawsuit against the fallen producer.

The meeting goes on like that from there.

Thompson tells Sky News that at one point in the meeting Weinstein reached his hand under the desk and put it under Thompson's skirt.

"I never met anyone that I couldn't handle until Harvey Weinstein", she added.

As well as the civil suits, Weinstein also faces criminal charges - he has denied all allegations.

Claiming that the video tried to malign Weinstein for financial gain, Barfman said facts mattered. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for 20 September.

Once in the room, he raped her.
