Sivan told the Huffington Post that a decade ago, when she was a news anchor on the Long Island 12 cable channel in New York, she experienced the abuse. She claimed she told friends in private but remained publicly silent because of a long-term relationship and fear of Weinstein’s power.

Weinstein’s attorney, Lisa Bloom, said Weinstein was not available to respond. A Weinstein Company publicist did not respond to the Huffington Post’s attempts to get a comment.
