One of Hollywood's most influential producers, Harvey Weinstein, has been accused of groping a 22-year-old woman.

The model told cops that the Oscar-winning Hollywood producer sexually abused her after coaxing her to his Manhattan office on the pretext of talking business.

The 63-year-old co-chairman of The Weinstein Company, had met the Italian model at the Tribeca Film Centre in a meeting, and she claimed that the film producer had grabbed her breasts and touched her thigh, TMZ.com reported.

Weinstein even allegedly asked if her breasts were real, and the model reported the casting couch incident immediately after leaving the meeting.

Weinstein has not been charged with any wrongdoing and, after being located by detectives, voluntarily accompanied the police to be questioned about the matter.

Ken Sunshine, a representative for Mr. Weinstein, said: “We are cooperating fully with the authorities and are confident that we will be fully vindicated. We will have no further comment.”
