Aishwarya Rai’s former talent manager claims Harvey Weinstein wanted to meet her alone


Top stars like Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexually harassment in the early stage of their career. Actresses like Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Winslet also joined in slamming the producer. The producer has been blamed by multiple women for sexually harassing them for over three decades.

And now, Aishwarya Rai’s former talent manager has claimed that Harvey Weinstein wanted to meet the actress all alone, but her former talent manager saved her from being a victim, reported Aishwarya and Harvey have met several times in the past, during AmFar Gala and the Cannes International Film Festival.

Aishwarya’s former talent manager Simone Sheffield wrote on, “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. He asked me to leave the meeting numerous times and I politely declined. 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, “When Ash and I returned to our hotel, I sent Harvey a steel pig trough filled with DIET COKE as a thank you gift for the meeting. Yes, we did do business and yes, he eventually threatened me. Told me I’d never work in this business. 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.”
