Actress: Weinstein used Oprah and Naomi to seduce me

“An aspiring actress says Harvey Weinstein used Oprah Winfrey and Naomi Campbell to dupe her into thinking he would help her with her career — only to use her for sex.

British actress Kadian Noble said Tuesday she was head-over-heels impressed when she first met Weinstein at an event in London because he was hanging out with model Campbell and had megastar Oprah “swinging off his arm.”

“I thought, obviously, this man has something amazing in store for me,” she said during a teary-eyed press conference in Manhattan to discuss the sex trafficking lawsuit she filed a day earlier against Weinstein in Manhattan federal court.

Instead, Weinstein used promises of career advancement to lure the actress to his hotel room in Cannes, France, where he forced himself on her, she said.

“I felt completely played,” she said.​

Noble is the latest in a long line of actresses and models who claim Weinstein either forced himself on them or coerced them into sex with promises of career advancement.

“Mr. Weinstein denies allegations of non-consensual sex,” his spokeswoman said. “Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.”

After meeting Weinstein in London, Noble said she thought nothing of bringing her “show reel” to his hotel room when she saw him again in Cannes in February 2014.

Once inside the hotel room, however, “he didn’t seem that interested in my show reel,” Noble said.

Instead, he began touching her while discussing hooking her up with a modeling agency in London.

“He said, ‘I need to know you really like me,’” Nobel said. “’I have all the information we need. I just need to know you really like me.’”

The incident ended in the bathroom, where he “forced” Noble to perform sex acts in front of the bathroom mirror, she said.

Afterward, Weinstein failed to help her with her career as promised, she said. She blames him for destroying her acting dreams and said she has since reported her case to the NYPD.”

British Actress Says Weinstein Used Oprah to Lure Her to His Room #MeToo

“On Sunday night Oprah Winfrey lectured the nation and white males for the monstrous sexual abuse culture in Hollywood during her Golden Globes speech.

Most all of the men accused of abusive behavior against women in the past several months are liberal elites.

But it wasn’t that long ago that a British actress accused Weinstein and Oprah of persuading her to his hotel bedroom.

Harvey Weinstein’s lurid past and outright inappropriate behavior was the focus of the news cycle last year…

Although Weinstein faded from public view, Hollywood continued to implode.

Almost daily, new accusations against Hollywood celebrities surfaced and garnered headlines. It seems that no one is safe in the industry; with Matt Lauer being outed and exposed as a sick, deviant creep, it makes you contemplate what well-known and respected name will break next.”
