GWYNETH PALTROW claims Harvey Weinstein lied about having sex with her to coerce other women into sleeping with him.
The actress has accused the shamed film producer of wielding her name like ‘an assault weapon’ in a string of ‘disturbing encounters’.
She told the New York Times she recently learned the 65-year-old mentioned her name in 2000 while urging one starlet that complying with his requests would be ‘the best thing you can do for your career’.
Paltrow, 45, alleged in October that Weinstein put his hands on her during a meeting in a Beverly Hills hotel when she was 22. The mother-of-two’s claims followed accusations of rape, sexual assault and harassment made against the mogul by dozens of women.
He is understood to have sought help from therapists but denies allegations of non-consensual sex.
