In the midst of numerous women coming out with allegations of sexual harassment and assault against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, a stunning audio recording has been released appearing to show him admitting to groping a model against her will.
In the recording, obtained by The New Yorker, Weinstein is in conversation with model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez.
At the beginning of the audio, a voice appearing to be Weinstein’s can be heard speaking to Gutierrez and telling her he was going to take a shower while she sits and watches. Guitierrez continuously says she didn’t want to and says “yesterday was kind of aggressive for me.”
Weinstein tells her not to embarrass him at the hotel, and he vows to “never see her again after this.”
“Yesterday you touched by breasts,” Guitierrez says at one point, with Weinstein replying that he’s “used to that.”
The incident occurred in spring of 2015, and she reported it to the New York Police, The New Yorker reported.
“Guitierrez told police that Weinstein then lunged at her, groping her breasts and attempting to put a hand up her skirt while she protested,”
