Blind Items Revealed #3 - Blind Items Revisited

When going through old blinds, I stumbled across this one I wrote in February 2014 and revealed back in June 2014. From what I can figure out, this seems like the time that Lupita Nyong'o was assaulted by Harvey Weinstein.

February 3, 2014

This feel good award story this season was caught slinking out of a married executive's hotel room this weekend. That is probably going to crush this A+ list mostly movie actor who, despite a significant other was thought to be interested in the actress.

Lupita Nyong'o/Brad Pitt

She didn't say she was assaulted by him. She said he tried to strip in front of her. There were a series of encounters where he tried to verbally push her into sex, but she resisted him. It's in her NY Times piece.

He threatened her career and that's enough for me.

Do Tell said...

Right, but there are actual assault victims in the Weinstein debacle. She isn't one of them and assault is worse.

It depends what you consider assault. He put hands on her in a sexual way, trying to make her do sexual things with him. Sounds like assault to me and feels bad enough from experience.

I hate that she had to endure his advances - which equate to sexual harassment.... but I'm so freaking happy to hear she resisted. Her emotional well being meant more to her than achievement. Bravo lady, bravo!

is is just me or does Harvey seem to have something against Brad Pitt?

Do Tell said...

Emma, she never said he put his hands on her.

So a woman basically trying to escape being sexually assaulted is "slinking" out of his hotel room and the clear implication in the blind is that there was some kind of consensual sex. Sad.

Sydney Gingell said...

That is assault, asshole.

Pitt was one of few men who stood up to Weinstein so he probably did.lol.

Assault legally means merely to put someone in fear of being hurt...battery is the touching part.

In my wet dreams, Brad Pitt and his Hollywood money machine is behind the Weinstein take down. And then he father's my next baby.
