A pretty chanteuse who spent Thursday night cuddling with Harvey Weinstein at a downtown club claims she’s the victim of media “lies” — but the two have been handsy in public before, The Post has learned.
Alexandra Vino had previously snuggled and flirted with the rape-accused movie mogul last month at an event promoting aspiring actors at Downtime Bar in Alphabet City.
In fact, it was Vino who came to Weinstein’s defense when another actress at the bar that night, Zoe Stuckless, started protesting the presence at the bar of a “f–king rapist.”
Vino, 30, can be seen seconds into that clip, wearing a gold, sequined dress and interceding on Weinstein’s behalf — and then helping usher Stuckless away.
Vino and performing partner Helga Rose had been “sitting next to Weinstein the whole night” that evening, Stuckless recalled to The Post.
Still, Saturday’s Page 1 Post story — detailing how Vino repeatedly hugged Weinstein and sat on his lap at the Socialista lounge on West Broadway last week — apparently spurred her to go online to correct the “lies.”
“Feeling a bit sad today from all the lies put out in the world,” Vino posted.
“How people can make up stories and then believe them and spread them,” she complained in an Instagram story.
“Whoever is in the audience is not my concern,” she wrote.
“I feel taken advantage of by the press. Don’t listen to their lies.”
