Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein allegedly sexually assaulted a 16-year-old Polish model and aspiring actress just days after they met. 

The woman, identified as Jane Doe in a new legal filing, alleges that Weinstein forced her to touch his penis in his New York City apartment in 2002. 

Court papers filed in Manhattan on Wednesday claim Weinstein went on to harass and emotionally abuse the woman for nearly a decade and blocked her from having a successful career. 

Weinstein’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, slammed the allegations as ‘preposterous’.

The woman, identified as Jane Doe in a new legal filing, alleges that Harvey Weinstein (above this month) forced her to touch his penis in his New York City apartment in 2002

The woman claims she met Weinstein at an event for her modeling agency Next and three days later agreed to meet him for a business lunch.

She alleges Weinstein took her to his SoHo apartment where he ‘wasted no time in aggressively and threateningly demanding sex’, according to the court documents first obtained by the New York Post. 

‘Weinstein threatened and pressured Jane Doe, saying that he had ‘made’ the careers of Penelope Cruz and Gwyneth Paltrow, and that neither would be working without him.

‘He then took off his pants and forcibly held Jane Doe while taking her hand and making her touch and massage his penis.’

The woman said she told Weinstein at the time that she was only 16. 

Over the next decade, the woman said she continued to resist Weinstein’s requests for sex.  

The allegations from Jane Doe were included in an amended complaint in a class action lawsuit that accuses Weinstein’s movie studio board of enabling and covering up his alleged sexual misconduct. 

Doe’s lawyer said she was brave to come forward.

Weinstein is facing criminal charges involving two other women. That case was roiled recently by allegations that a police detective acted improperly.
