The HuffPo article alleges that the incident occurred ten years ago, when Sivan was a news anchor on a NY local cable channel.
Sivan claims Weinstein took her down past the kitchen and to a secluded area. Mr. Weinstein tried unsuccessfully to kiss her once the two were alone, then exposed himself and masturbated in front of her until he ejaculated into a plotted plant, she said.
When she rebuffed him, Weinstein reportedly said "Well, can you just stand there and shut up". Weinstein then allegedly undid his trousers and started masturbating in front of her.
