Rehal alleges in the lawsuit that she was forced to carry Weinstein's erectile dysfunction shots, as well as help in the "preparations for, and clean up after", of Weinstein's multiple sexual encounters. Although Weinstein warned her he was a tough guy to work for, "she could never have imagined how very bad and terrifying her job would be", the lawsuit says.
She said Weinstein would ask her to slip a shot into his jacket pocket or a brown paper bag whenever he went to meet a woman at a hotel, on average at least three times a week. She says among other things, he made her get him clean underwear, and when she would sit in his SUV with him he would rub between her thighs.
She says on numerous occasions he said, "What's wrong Sandeep, is the tampon up too far today?".
The ex-assistant claims Weinstein would be in the nude while dictating emails to her on a weekly basis. I decide whether or not you graduate'.
A spokeswoman for Harvey Weinstein sent The Hollywood Reporter this statement in response to the suit: "Mr. Weinstein categorically denies these claims and his lawyers will respond in the appropriate legal forum with evidence proving they are untrue". What's more, she also has a claim against the company's human resources executive Frank Gil, whom she accuses of "aiding and abetting [Weinstein's] conduct".
The allegations from Rehal are just the latest in a string of claims against the producer, once known as one of the most powerful figures in Hollywood.
"To say Weinstein's behavior was harmful, tawdry, demeaning and offensive is an understatement", said Genie Harrison, an attorney for Weinstein.
Sandeep reveals she began working for Harvey in 2013, and he quickly began making inappropriate requests. "Although Sandeep's employers gave little thought to her physical and emotional welfare, we have confidence that the jury will deliver justice and restore her dignity".
