Harvey Weinstein Caught on Tape by NYPD Admitting to Groping

Harvey Weinstein is heard admitting to groping model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez in audio obtained from an NYPD sting operation, and published by the New Yorker on Tuesday.

The tape is part of a larger bombshell expose. Ronan Farrow spent 10 months interviewing 13 women who reported they were harassed or assaulted by Weinstein. The explosive report alleges the embattled mogul raped three women, including actress Asia Argento.

The tape was published after Gutierrez’s 2015 criminal charge was investigated, then dropped, by the NYPD. Gutierrez went public with her claims that the mogul had touched her breasts and put his hand up her skirt without her consent. Manhattan District Attorney, Cyrus Vance, Jr. ultimately decided not to press charges, which a police source tells was a mistake.

“We had the evidence,” the source told the New Yorker, with the author noting that if convicted of assault, Weinstein could have faced jail time.

In the tape, Gutierrez is heard asking Weinstein, “Why yesterday you touch my breast?”

Weinstein responds, “Oh, please, I’m sorry, just come on in, I’m used to that. Come in, please.”

She replies, “You’re used to that?”

“Yes, come in,” he says.

Gutierrez says, “No, but I’m not used to that.”

To which Weinstein pleads, “I won’t do it again, come on, sit here. Sit here for a minute, please?”
