    Weinstein rape accuser told him 'I love you' in emails released by mogul's defence

    3 August 2018 • 7:21pm

    One of the women accusing Harvey Weinstein of rape told the film producer “I love you” and repeatedly sought to meet with him, according to a series of emails filed in court by the former film mogul's lawyers.

    Weinstein, 66, was charged on May 25 with four counts of sexual assault and two of rape. Five days later a Grand Jury indicted him, allowing the case to proceed to trial.

    Yesterday (FRI) Weinstein’s lawyers filed court documents seeking to dismiss the charges, which claim the producer was “in a long-term, consensual, intimate relationship” with the accuser.

    Benjamin Brafman, the high-powered celebrity lawyer representing Weinstein, produced a selection of emails from 400 communications between Weinstein and the unnamed woman.

    The woman has accused Weinstein of raping her on March 18, 2013, in New York City.

    Mr Brafman sought to undermine her accusations by producing a series of emails which he claimed demonstrated affection, even four years after the night in question.

    “I love you, always do,” she wrote on February 8, 2017. “But I hate feeling like a booty call. :)

    The emails were made public after Mr Brafman won permission from the judge in New York. They were from his work email, which he was prevented accessing due to Weinstein Company bankruptcy proceedings in Delaware.


    Weinstein had been seeking access to the emails since October, shortly after his ouster from the company, arguing that they would help him defend himself from sexual misconduct allegations, both in civil and criminal court. The bankruptcy court granted him access in May.

    Mr Brafman characterised the conversation as part of “an exchange of more than 400 warm, complimentary and solicitous emails”, stating that “never once in those communications claiming to have ever been harmed by Mr Weinstein.”

    She emailed Weinstein to ask for his help with securing membership of private members’ club Soho House, and also suggested bringing her mother to meet Weinstein.

    Did the police go to his house responding to a report of domestic violence in progress?

    Did they?

    If not, it doesn’t match the mandatory arrest laws in most jurisdictions that I looked at.

    Happy to help you with anything else you don’t understand/didn’t even bother to read.

    Rape isn't "domestic violence"?

    Is that a rat with Andrew Gaff's face on it??? I was hoping he would go to Norf and be guaranteed on never winning a Premiership, keeping the karma boat going. Be thankful you didn't get him and now you have a chance to build up and you'll have a Premiership chance!

    We’re the police called out during or soon after the incident?

    You know they weren’t.

    You’re not a stupid man, you just play one on the internet.

    I'll put my hand up in this instance. I have been stunned by the unearthing of your lapse in to draconian statism.

    The word "liberal" is quite possibly the most bastardised word in the contemporary English language.

    You can give consent 400 times but only deny consent once for it still to be rape

    Exactly - the state of the relationship has little bearing on what might have happened. Relationships like this are complex things, and time after time people act in ways that seem contradictory and illogical to onlookers.

    But hiding these details is a very bad look.
