Paris Hilton Reveals Harvey Weinstein Followed Her To Bathroom, Yelled At Her When She Was 19’
An American model and businesswoman revealed in an interview that she had an incident with Harvey Weinstein, who is a well-known producer and was recently sentenced to 16 years in prison for rape. She met him at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival; at that time, she was 19 years old.
She claims to have met Weinstein the day before the gala, where he reportedly told her, “You want to be a star,” and invited her to meet him. However, she was unable to do so. The following night, Weinstein ran into Hilton and followed her to the ladies’ room, where he pounded on the door and yelled, but she didn’t answer. Eventually, security arrived and removed him. She responded, “I didn’t want to say anything because I didn’t want people getting angry at me for saying anything rubbish,” when Glamour UK questioned her about why she hadn’t spoken earlier.
