United Kingdom police investigating two new Weinstein claims


After foreshadowing her allegations against Weinstein previous year during a viral red carpet interview, and in an ominous Instagram post, Thurman has delivered on her promise, and has alleged that Weinstein assaulted her not long after the premiere of 1994's Pulp Fiction in a London hotel room.

'We have pulled a number of images that demonstrate the strong relationship Mr. Weinstein and Ms. Thurman had had over the years and we wish the New York Times would have published them.

Assistants persuaded her to go up to his room, where she threatened him that if he treated other women the same way he had her, "you will lose your career, your reputation and your family, I promise you". As a half assed apology, he sent her yellow roses. "And he was very angry at that, I guess understandably because he didn't feel he had tried to kill me", Thurman said.

"Personally, it has taken me 47 years to stop calling people who are mean to you "in love" with you".

But the actress said her negative relationship with Weinstein also affected her interactions with Tarantino.

It wasn't long after the Paris meeting that Weinstein allegedly assaulted Thurman in a London hotel room. Here's some things you should know about the talented and fearless star who is sharing her personal story about the film producer. He tried to shove himself on me.

"I didn't feel threatened", she said.

So far, there's been no comment from Tarantino.

The "Kill Bill" actress sat down with the New York Times to finally share her Weinstein story, after saying in October 2007, "When I am ready, I will say what I have to say".

"But from my own experience, when I was starting acting in the early Sixties, the director of the theatre I was working at showed me some photographs he got from women who were wanting jobs", he said at the time.

Harvey Weinstein has been investigated in both the United States and the UK on multiple allegations of sexual assault, all of which he has denied.

"I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn't tell by the look on my face".

While she says she has a "permanently damaged neck" and "screwed-up knees", it's her "complicated" feelings about Weinstein's' subsequent victims that perhaps haunt her most.

Later, while on set, Thurman was also subject to injury when she says that Tarantino demanded she do her own driving for the film's infamous black and white scenes in a vehicle that had been reconfigured from a stick shift to an automatic.

'Why Ms Thurman would wait 25 years to publicly discuss this incident and why according to Weinstein, she would embellish what really happened to include false accusations of attempted physical assault is a mystery to Weinstein and his attorneys. Despite repeatedly insisting she be given footage of the crash, Tarantino and Miramax, Weinstein's production company, refused unless she sign away the right to hold them responsible for "any consequences of [her] future pain and suffering".

In footage posted by the Times, the actress is seen speeding down an unpaved road before crashing into a tree.

"Uma Thurman has seen the inside of our industry for 30 years". According to the actress, a teamster had told her the vehicle might not be operating that well.

Weinstein released a statement through his rep and said that Thurman's allegations are false.
