The woman’s name is Hayley Gripp, and she’s just Weinstein’s latest accuser to file a lawsuit against the disgraced film producer … who is now in jail. She claims Weinstein sexually assaulted her in 2012, with the help of an anonymous associate.
According to the documents, obtained by TMZ, Gripp claims to have been approached by this anonymous associate of Weinstein while she was awaiting a casting at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. She says the two have started talking about her career aspirations, as well as her Tourette syndrome.
Gripp claims the woman said she wanted to introduce her to a top producer who was in the building, who she said would like to talk more about her trip. Gripp – who says she was only 19 at the time – explains that she was hesitant but ultimately agreed.
It was then that she said she met HW, whom she said she did not know at the time … and who apparently introduced himself as Judgment, she alleges. Gripp claims she was served wine and before she knew it… she says she passed out, only to wake up with Weinstein on her.
Gripp says she started waving her arms and snapped one of her acrylic nails on the coffee table she claims to have pinned her to. She claims she was able to stab HW with her broken nail at the bottom of her scrotum, and freed herself from his claws… by running for it.
She alleges that the woman who first lured her up there was outside the “guard” and continued to tell her that it was on her because of her syndrome and that she had better do it. close her trap, because no one would believe her… so claims Gripp.
As for Weinstein, he categorically denies the whole story, saying he doesn’t know Gripp at all and that his claims are “incredibly dishonest and contrived.” He is also evaluating legal action.
