Harvey Weinstein Hit With Class Action Lawsuit For Accused Racketeering To Cover Up Sexual Assaults With The Help Of 'The Weinstein Sexual Enterprise'

no title

Harvey Weinstein went through great lengths to cover up his decades of sexual misconduct — so great, some alleged victims believe it amounts to civil racketeering.

The disgraced movie mogul and The Weinstein Company have been hit with a class-action lawsuit filed by six women who say Weinstein sexually assaulted them when they auditioned for him or met him at company sponsored events.

The plaintiffs seek to be certified as a class to sue on grounds of racketeering, civil battery, assault, and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

The lawsuit, which aims to represent a class of "dozens, if not hundreds" of Weinstein's alleged victims, claims the indie film producer was aided by a coalition of companies and individuals that worked with the producer to cover up his widespread sexual misconduct.

Entities of this so-called "Weinstein Sexual Enterprise" included Weinstein's staff, board members, hired operatives, attorneys, and National Enquirer writers — all of whom allegedly violated the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

The lawsuit claims:

Harvey Weinstein Was Almost Arrested By The NYPD In 2015 For Sexual Assault — Hear Audio From The Sting Operation!

no title

Ronan Farrow wasn't the only one working to expose Harvey Weinstein.

In fact, the NYPD was this close to busting the slimeball by setting up a sting operation with one of his accusers back in 2015.

Italian model Ambra Battilana (above) had agreed to record her conversation with the indie film producer on March 28, 2015 when the two met at the Tribeca Grand Hotel, just a day after she accused Weinstein of groping her breasts prodding his hand under her skirt.

In the audio recording, which was obtained and published by the New Yorker in Tuesday's bombshell exposé, Weinstein can be heard profusely apologizing to Battilana and coercing her into coming up to his hotel room.

An NYPD officer with knowledge of the case revealed to The Daily Beast that officers were on the scene and had hoped to catch the movie mogul in the act so they could arrest him on the spot.

But due to safety concerns, Battilana backed out at the last second and the pair returned downstairs where the captured argument was had. Weinstein was reportedly soon picked up by the detectives and taken in for questioning.

Battilana, one of the eight women who allegedly received a settlement from the producer detailed in last week's New York Times report, first met Weinstein at a show he was producing in New York on March 2015. The entertainment mogul reportedly introduced himself to her and told her again and again that she looked like Mila Kunis.

He scheduled a meeting with the aspiring actress the following day through her agency. She was sitting on the couch in his Tribeca office when he started staring at her breasts and asked if they were real.

Battilana told authorities that shortly after, Weinstein lunged at her, groped her breasts, and tried to put his hand

Harvey Weinstein Lawyers Up In Anticipation Of Potentially Damaging Stories Brewing At The Times & New Yorker!

no title

Is one Hollywood's biggest producers about to take a big hit?

Harvey Weinstein has called on an army of attorneys and crisis managers over the past few weeks in anticipation of The New York Times publishing an upcoming story on his personal behavior.

Multiple sources familiar with the behind-the-scenes battle told The Hollywood Reporter that the Times has been calling dozens of current and former employees and associates of the executive as far back to his days running Miramax over two decades ago.

The research team is also said to have obtained internal HR documents during the investigation — though it's unclear just what the publication is planning to report.

Given Weinstein's unusually significant lawyering up, however, it's save to assume the story isn't a glowing review of Wind River, especially since the Times isn't the only media outlet currently assembling a piece on the mogul.

NBC News correspondent Ronan Farrow has also been digging into the exec's past for the last year, and is reportedly working with The New Yorker on a "lengthy" story.

Being no stranger to litigation, the owner of The Weinstein Company offered a cheeky response to the brewing media battle, telling THR:

Anthony Scaramucci Audio Released — Hear Him Trash Talk Trump's Team For Yourself!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikDonald Trump

For a White House communications director, this sure seems to have been a rookie mistake!

Anthony Scaramucci seems to have been fired largely as a result of his embarrassingly vulgar New Yorker interview, in which he trashed every other major figure in the White House — something classless even for Donald Trump's standards, if you can believe it.

In a new radio segment, interviewer Ryan Lizza explains how The Mooch called him to reveal the source of a leak and ended up saying way more than he should have — and never said any of it was off the record!

OMG, are they gonna throw an #AntiNerdProm!?

The White House Correspondents' Dinner is typically the most glamorous night of the year for politicians.

Magazine spokesperson Natalie Raabe confirmed The New Yorker will cancel its annual kickoff party. It was also announced that Vanity Fair will not co-sponsor the after-party, which is usually the hottest shindig in town.

Graydon Carter, Vanity Fair editor and vocal Trump opposer, will be spending the weekend fishing instead of hosting the star-studded bash.

When asked why he was skipping out on the dinner, Carter simply said:
