Harvey Weinstein arrives at The Weinstein Company and Netflix Golden Globes afterparty in Beverly Hills Calif. The sexual harassment and assault allegations against Weinstein that rocked Hollywood and sparked a

"Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein", a spokesperson said.

According to TMZ, an actress listed only as Jane Doe has filed a lawsuit against Harvey and The Weinstein Company, claiming they knew his pattern of behavior and failed to stop him. "Despite her telling Weinstein 'no, ' Weinstein proceeded to grip her wrist with one hand while using the other to masturbate in front of her to completion". It also names The Weinstein Co., which fired its co-founder after decades of allegations of sexual harassment were detailed in an expose by The New York Times last month.

The following year, the woman agreed to meet Weinstein at the Montage Hotel again after being given the impression that she had been chosen for a part in Marco Polo, which was produced by his company. "Mr. Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual". The second incident occurred in spring 2016 when the lawsuit claims Weinstein threw the woman on his bed in a hotel room, started performing oral sex on her, then held her down while he masturbated on her.

The plaintiff, represented by attorney Gloria Allred, filed suit against both Weinstein and the Weinstein Co. Before she could leave, she alleges that Weinstein pulled her into the bedroom.

The lawsuit is just the latest in a series of allegations ranging from harassment to rape to be leveled against Weinstein, who faces criminal investigations in Los Angeles, New York, and the United Kingdom.

The harassment and abuse allegations against Weinstein have created led to numerous women coming forward with allegations of harassment and abuse against powerful men, including actor Kevin Spacey, numerous entertainment industry executives and politicians in the United States and overseas.

NBC News says it has fired Matt Zimmerman, its top talent booker, for "inappropriate conduct" with more than one woman at the network.

The network didn't give any details Tuesday about Zimmerman's behavior, only that he violated company policy.

Messages sent to Zimmerman were not immediately returned Tuesday.

More than 100 women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment or assault, including Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie and Cara Delevingne.
