Harvey had 'bargain' over sexual activity with Judd
Los Angeles: Seeking dismissal of the case filed against him by Ashley Judd, Harvey Weinstein has claimed he and the actor-activist had struck "a bargain" with respect to future sexual activity".
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Weinstein's attorney Phyllis Kupferstein has claimed Judd has waited too long to sue.
In 2015, Judd, on media platforms talked about being sexually harassed by a media mogul – whom she declined to name at the time.
She later accused him of making sexual demands in a hotel room about 20 years ago.
She tells it as an encounter she allegedly only escaped after relenting to a deal where she would let him touch her if she won an Academy Award.
The 50-year-old Judd said she was in serious discussions for a big role in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings, but she missed the bus after Weinstein or someone at Miramax told the director of that she was a "nightmare" to work with – the allegations for which she is currently suing.
