Woman says Weinstein screamed ‘you owe me!’ before alleged rape

A former aspiring actress who has accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her twice has said he once shouted “you owe me!” before one of the alleged attacks.

Jessica Mann, 34, told the disgraced movie mogul’s trial that she was in an “extremely degrading” relationship with Weinstein between 2012 and 2013.

She likened Weinstein to “Jekyll and Hyde,” saying he could be charming in public but often showed frightening anger when they were alone.

“If he heard the word ‘no,’ it was like a trigger for him,” she said.

Ms Mann told jurors the first rape happened in a New York hotel room in March 2013 after Weinstein demanded she undress, saying he “stood over me until I was completely naked”.
