Weinstein Rape Accuser Breaks Down During Harsh Questioning

HeadlineFeb 04, 2020

A dramatic scene unfolded in a New York City courtroom Monday as Harvey Weinstein accuser Jessica Mann broke down and went into an apparent panic attack during questioning from the disgraced movie mogul’s lawyers, forcing the judge to adjourn proceedings for the day. Mann was made to read past emails to a boyfriend, in which she disclosed she had been sexually assaulted before meeting Weinstein. She accuses Weinstein of raping her in New York and Los Angeles and said she had an “extremely degrading” relationship with him. She is one of six women testifying against Weinstein in his New York rape trial.
