The Curious Case Of Harvey Weinstein III: The Audio Proof From The New Yorker

Share

In 2015 Harvey Weinstein met with Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, “at a reception for “New York Spring Spectacular,” a show that he was producing at Radio City Music Hall” (the New Yorker)

Weinstein then set up a meeting with Ms. Gutierrez under the premise that it was about business. There, he groped Ms. Gutierrez, before she reported the matter to the N.Y.P.D. who in turn, devised a plan to extract a confession from Mr. Weinstein.

After meeting him at the Tribeca Grand Hotel, the audio of the exchange between the two went like this:

Weinstein: I’m telling you right now, get in here.

Gutierrez: What do we have to do here?

Weinstein: Nothing. I’m going to take a shower, you sit there and have a drink.

Gutierrez: I don’t drink.

Weinstein: Then have a glass of water.

Gutierrez: Can I stay on the bar?

Weinstein: No. You must come here now.

Gutierrez: No …

Weinstein: Please?

Gutierrez: No, I don’t want to.

Weinstein: I’m not doing anything with you, I promise. Now you’re embarrassing me.

Gutierrez: I know, I don’t want to. I’m sorry, I cannot.

Weinstein: No, come in here.

Gutierrez: No, yesterday was kind of aggressive for me.

Weinstein: I know —

Gutierrez: I need to know a person to be touched.

Weinstein: I won’t do a thing.

Gutierrez: I don’t want to be touched.

Weinstein: I won’t do a thing, please. I swear I won’t. Just sit with me. Don’t embarrass me in the hotel. I’m here all the time. Sit with me, I promise —

Gutierrez: I know, but I don’t want to.

Weinstein: Please sit there. Please. One minute, I ask you.

Gutierrez: No, I can’t.

Weinstein: Go to the bathroom.

Gutierrez: Please, I don’t want to do something I don’t want to.

Weinstein: Go to the bathroom — Hey, come here. Listen to me —

Gutierrez: I want to go downstairs.

Weinstein: I won’t do anything and you’ll never see me again after this. OK? That’s it. If you don’t – if you embarrass me in this hotel where I’m staying —

Gutierrez: I’m not embarrassing you —

Weinstein: Just walk —

Gutierrez: It’s just that I don’t feel comfortable.

Weinstein: Honey, don’t have a fight with me in the hallway.

Gutierrez: It’s not nothing, it’s —

Weinstein: Please. I’m not gonna do anything. I swear on my children. Please come in. On everything. I’m a famous guy.

Gutierrez: I’m, I’m feeling very uncomfortable right now.

Weinstein: Please come in. And one minute. And if you wanna leave when the guy comes with my jacket, you can go.

Gutierrez: Why yesterday you touch my breast?

Weinstein: Oh, please. I’m sorry. Just come on in. I’m used to that.

Gutierrez: You’re used to that?

Weinstein: Yes, come in.

Gutierrez: No, but I’m not used to that.

Weinstein: I won’t do it again. Come on, sit here. Sit here for a minute, please?

Gutierrez: No, I don’t want to.

Weinstein: If you do this now you will [unintelligible]. Now go. Bye. Never call me again. OK? I’m sorry, nice to have — I promise you I won’t do anything.

Gutierrez: I know, but yesterday was too much for me.

Weinstein: The guy is coming. I will never do another thing to you. Five minutes. Don’t ruin your friendship with me for five minutes.

Gutierrez: I know — but, it’s kind of, like, it’s too much for me. I can’t.

Weinstein: Please, you’re making a big scene here. Please.

Gutierrez: No, but I wanna leave.

Weinstein: OK, bye. Thank you.
