Harvey Weinstein accused of raping actress Paz de la Huerta in new lawsuit

Harvey Weinstein is facing another lawsuit. 

Actress Paz de la Huerta, best known for roles in HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” and romantic drama “A Walk to Remember,” filed a lawsuit against Weinstein Monday, alleging the disgraced movie mogul raped her on two separate occasions.

According to the suit, de la Huerta claims Weinstein offered her a ride home to New York’s Tribeca neighborhood in October 2010 after they attended the same party. Weinstein reportedly pressured her to let him into her apartment for a drink, where he raped her.
