Producer accused of sexual harassing Lupita Nyong’o Opens up
Can this be the true account of how things went down?
Days after Lupita’s confession of being sexual harassed by Producer Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced Mogul has opened up about what happened.
According to the Producer, Lupita lied in her revelation by giving untrue account of what happened.
The producer claims Lupita personally invited him to be with her and not the other way round.
“Weinstein has a different recollection of the events. Last Year, Lupita sent a personal invitation to Weinstein to see her in Broadway show Eclipsed” said Harvey through a representative
Lupita had claimed that Harvey invited her to a private screening at his home, where he asked to give her a massage.
Feeling “unsafe’ she panicked and offered to give him one instead, until he attempted to remove his pants, when she ran away.
"Harvey led me into a bedroom (his bedroom ) and announced that he wanted to give me a massage," Nyong'o wrote. "I thought he was joking at first. He was not. For the first time since I met him, I felt unsafe. I panicked a little and thought quickly to offer to give him one instead: It would allow me to be in control physically, to know exactly where his hands were at all times." said Lupita
In the Lupita’s revelation in the New York Times, the actress claims that she first met with Harvey in 2011 at an awards ceremony in Berlin and he was introduced to her as the most powerful Hollywood Producer.
Lupita Nyong’o is yet to respond to Harvey Weinstein’s claims.
Lupita's encounter with the Producer is not the first one, as of Monday, the number of women alleging sexual misconduct, harassment, assault or rape by Weinstein surpassed 50 women, including 48 named women.
