Melissa Thompson, who has previously publicly complained of abusive behaviour by Harvey Weinstein during a 2011 business meeting in NY, gave a tape of the encounter to Sky News.

The video was recorded by Thompson when she met Weinstein at his office in 2011.

The women suing Weinstein - Caitlin Dulany, Larissa Gomes and Melissa Thompson - filed the lawsuit on behalf of "hundreds of other females like them" who were subject to "unwanted sexual conduct" from Weinstein "that took many forms: flashing, groping, fondling, harassing, battering, false imprisonment, sexual assault, attempted rape, and/or completed rape".

Harvey Weinstein is seen getting handsy and flirting with a woman in a new video. the same woman accusing him of rape. Back in June, Thompson gave this interview to NBC News in which she mentions the video and even offered NBC a screengrab from it. When Thompson reaches out her hand to shake with Weinstein, he swats it aside and instead embraces her in a long, uncomfortable looking hug and intimately runs his hands up and down her back.

At one point, she jokes: "Data's so hot right now". Sky News reported that he then locked the door.

Weinstein's lawyer said the full video "demonstrates that there is nothing forceful" and shows "casual, if not awkward, flirting from both parties".

Thompson is among three women now suing the megaproducer for alleged sexual assault.

Throughout the rest of the meeting, Weinstein sexually harasses Thompson, running his hand up her leg at one point. When she replies, "we'll see, a little bit", Weinstein says he won't. "It's okay. Would you like to do it some more?" There, Thompson says, Weinstein raped her.

"Every time that he toed the line of being inappropriate enough where I may have said something, he could sense it and he pulled back and he changed the dynamic again", Thompson said.

Instead, she alleges, he lured her to his hotel room, where he raped her.

She added: "At first I tried to volley a little bit with him".

She told Sky News Wednesday that he'd also touched her under the table.

At the end of the meeting, Weinstein can be heard asking Thompson to meet him for a drink at a hotel. Anything short of that is meant to make Mr. Weinstein appear inappropriate, and even exploitative.

"If he would make a comment, I would try to catch it and return it in a way that felt a little safer than the way he threw it at me".

Thompson also rejected critics who said she encouraged Weinstein's behavior. I worked in Wall Street before I went to business school, and I worked in an environment that was heavily male dominated... "I thought I could handle it, I had never met anyone that I couldn't handle... until Harvey Weinstein". The next hearing in the case is scheduled for 20 September. Thompson is a major player in the class action lawsuit against the fallen producer. They include: film actress Rose McGowan, who said Weinstein raped her in 1997 in Utah; "Sopranos" actress Annabella Sciorra, who said he raped her in her NY apartment in 1992; and the Norwegian actress Natassia Malthe, who said he attacked her in a London hotel room in 2008.
