Weinstein Accused Perkins

A former Assistant to the embattled filmmaker, Harvey Weinstein has spoken against the film maker.

Zelda Perkins has broken a confidentiality agreement signed whilst working with Weinstein in the past, accusing him of sexually harassing her whilst under his employ.

Perkins who is British, and worked for Miramax Studios, shared a  £250,000 payment with another woman who claimed she was sexually assaulted by Weinstein, according to the Financial Times.

She has however told the newspaper that she was going to speak against Weinstein, breaking the agreement signed in 1998.

She waved her right of anonymity, and said the film mogul would ask her for massages in his under wear, and repeatedly tried to pull her into bed when she would go to wake him up.

“Unless somebody does this there won’t be a debate about how egregious these agreements are and the amount of duress that victims are put under” Perkins stated. She risks being sued.

Harvey Weinstein has come under a lot of fire after allegations of sexual harassment  broke out.

Over 40 women have come out publicly to accuse the filmmaker.

Female Celebrities who have accused Mr. Weinstein include Lupita Nyong’o, Lena Headey, Angie Everhart, Kate Beckinsale, Gwyneth Paltrow and Ashley Judd to mention but a few.

The case is the latest in the scandal that has engulfed one of Hollywood’s most powerful producers and rocked the industry.

He has been sacked from his company and expelled by both Hollywood’s Oscars Academy and the British Film Institute.

However, it does not seem like this or any other of the previous allegations levied against the Film mogul is going to end quietly or quickly.

A social media campaign #Metoo is trending world wide, as a means for women to speak up against sexual harassment.

Through his lawyers, Weinstein Harvey has “unequivocally” denied allegations of non-consensual sex made against him.

The popular rapper French Montana is looking out for the next generation as he takes his good works home.

French Montana takes up more charity work as he takes the good work to his home country Morocco by footing the bill for 2 preschool classrooms. The rapper who is working with the Sabae School of Fida-Mers Sultan district reportedly makes the donations that will be able to provide supplies and sustain the classrooms for at least a few years.

French grew up in Morocco before moving to the United States when he was 13. In June 2018, he became a legal citizen of the United States but his loyalty hasn’t shifted from home.

As reported by TMZ, “French’s investment in education comes on the heels of the $500k he raised to help build a hospital in Uganda. The hospital opened in March and it’s now servicing more than 300,000 women in 40 villages.”

Keep up the good work French!
