Former model Zoe Brock tells chilling story about how she fought back against Weinstein
(FOX 11) - As accusations of sexual harassment, abuse, even rape are leveled at Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein one model is telling a chilling story of how she fought back.
Zoe Brock was 23-years-old when she says she was... "Harveyed". Yes, there's a word for it.
Brock lives in New Zealand but was recently here in LA speaking out on a panel with other accusers for the entertainment media outlet, The Wrap.
She says she can't forget what happened in Cannes in 1998. "I think about it whenever I meet a powerful man. I think about it whenever I meet a dude with a lot of money and a lot of power."
On the web platform Medium Brock first wrote about her encounter. She says she was enraged when she read there were other accusations, other accusers and that they were speaking. She says she knew she had to tell her story.
Brock says Weinstein exposed himself in a hotel room at Cannes Film Festival in 1998. The then 23 year old model says she ran into the bathroom and yelled at him to "put your clothes on you naughty boy."
Brock says that shamed Weinstein into backing off and that the movie mogul even cried.
"I was terrified and angry and I know it was my anger that saved me."
Brock is now a mother and a writer. She is a model who said something nearly 20 years ago but feels she is only now really being heard.
Weinstein's reps say he thought all encounters were consensual. He is now in rehab. Police in LA and New York are investigating claims that include sexual assault, harassment, and rape.
