According to a former manager of Bollywood superstar Aishwarya Rai, the actress had been saved from the sexual advances of Hollywood studio boss Harvey Weinstein.
“I used to manage Indian actress Aishwarya Rai. While dealing with Harvey I found it comical how hard he tried to get Aishwarya alone. But he was a pig… looked and acted like a ‘big bully pig’,” wrote Simone Sheffield.
“When we were leaving his office he cornered me and said “what do I have to do to get her alone?” I told him to “kiss my black a**’,” she added.
Aishwarya’s manager claimed that when she and the actress returned to their hotel, she sent Harvey a steel pig trough filled with Diet Coke as a thank you gift for arranging the meet.
“Yes, we did do business and Yes, he eventually threatened me. Told me I’d never work in this business, blah blah blah….what I said to him I can’t print. But you can be sure, I never gave him the opportunity to even breathe on my client,” she stated.
Multiple women and actresses have accused Weinstein of abusing and assaulting them according to a report in the New York Times.
Three women have also accused the Hollywood producer of raping them.
