Another actress has stepped forward with damning allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, as reported by Page Six.
Minka Kelly, 37, has alleged that the notorious producer offered her a “lavish lifestyle,” complete with private jets and luxurious vacations, if she would be his girlfriend.
The Friday Night Lights star took to Instagram and detailed a harrowing encounter with Weinstein, in which she refused to be alone with him in a hotel room.
“I wasn’t comfortable with going to his room and said so,” she wrote. “[He] regaled me with offers of a lavish life filled with trips around the world on private planes etc. IF I would be his girlfriend.”
“All I knew was not to offend this very powerful man and to get out of the situation as quickly as possible.”
Kelly also alleged that Weinstein told her “I know you were feeling what I was feeling when we met the other night.”

The 37-year-old also alleged that she felt forced to say she was “flattered” by the offer in order to protect her career. She has since apologized for not speaking up about it sooner, as Weinstein allegedly told her to keep quiet.
“I’m sorry for obliging his orders to be complicit in protecting his behavior, which he obviously knew was wrong or he wouldn’t have asked me not to tell anyone in the first place,” she continued. “For making him feel ok about the gross things he was saying and that I felt my only route was to say I was flattered. For not insisting that my reps never allow anyone to take a meeting in a hotel room (with him or anyone else), because I honestly don’t know what might have happened if I’d just showed up as originally scheduled.”
“I am appalled for all the women being told these occurrences are in any way their fault.”
Weinstein has been accused of sexually harassing a spate of women, including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, and has been accused of sexually assaulting Rose McGowan and Asia Argento, among others, as previously reported by CrimeOnline.
Minka Kelly has not revealed when this incident is alleged to have taken place.
