Harvey Weinstein once masturbated in front of a waitress at an exclusive, members-only hotspot in Manhattan, jurors in his rape trial heard Wednesday.
Tarale Wulff said she had just brought the then-powerful Hollywood kingpin a drink when he suddenly whisked her away to an isolated area at Cipriani Upstairs in Soho in 2005.
“He had asked what I did and I said I was an actor. He said that you have a great look, you should come talk to my people,” Wulff recalled for jurors in Manhattan Supreme Court.
Weinstein didn’t speak as he continued to lead her to an unused terrace area near an ice machine at the club, Wulff said. She said she thought he was taking her to discuss “what he said inside the lounge.”
But he then guided her to stand in front of him.
“Once he had me in front of him, at some point, I said I have to get back to work and he said, ‘One sec, one sec,’ and I noticed that his shirt started moving … and I realized he was masturbating under his shirt,” said Wulff, now 43.
“I just froze for a second, then I just threw the towel and ran passed him.”
Wulff is one of three women allowed to testify about Weinstein’s alleged prior bad acts.
He is facing life in prison on predatory sexual assault and other charges related to incidents involving Mimi Haleyi, Annabella Sciorra and Jessica Mann.
