"The funds came from Bob Weinstein's personal bank account-a move that helped hide the payment from executives at Miramax and its parent company, Disney, as well as from Harvey Weinstein's spouse".

"From my very first time left alone with Harvey, I had to deal with him being present either in his underpants or totally naked", Perkins said. But then I thought I needed to support my mom and brother and how my life was being destroyed, and I did it.

"Because of the pending civil litigation and related investigations, it is inappropriate to respond specifically to each of the unsupported and untruthful insinuations contained in this article", they said.

"Suffice it to say, Mr. Weinstein strongly objects to any suggestion that his conduct at any time has ever been contrary to law, " according to the statement published in the magazine.

Gutierrez had told police the movie magnate touched her thigh, grabbed her breasts, and asked "are these real?" during a meeting in his Manhattan office on March 27, 2015.

After reportedly being told by their attorneys that Disney would "crush" them in any sexual assault lawsuit they brought, the pair allegedly accepted a settlement of 250,000 pounds, or $600,000 at the time, and signed a non-disclosure agreement.

Ultimately, Gutierrez said, she felt she had no choice to but accept a settlement.

One of the employees, Zelda Perkins, served as Harvey's assistant for years and said she was frequently sexually harassed by the Miramax co-founder. Gutierrez originally called the police, but Weinstein's attorneys allegedly hired a private intelligence firm to dig up information regarding the model's sexual history to use as blackmail.

However, while Bob acknowledged the payment, he said Harvey had told him the money was for two women he was "fooling around" with who were "asking for money". Bob confirmed the payment to The New Yorker, but also claims he was misled by Harvey about why he was paying the women.

The Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal continues to grow even more sinister, can report.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they speak publicly, as Gutierrez has done.
