Madonna is the latest name to join the #MeToo movement. In an interview with The New York Times, the singer revealed that she had been harassed by Harvey Weinstein – a producer who has been accused of more than a hundred sex crimes since October 2017.
According to the report, the case occurred in 1991, during the recordings of the documentary 'In Bed With Madonna'.
"Harvey has passed all boundaries and boundaries and was incredibly insinuating and sexually direct with me when we worked together," he said.
Madonna says it was the fear of producer power that, like other victims report, led her to hide what happened.
"All of us [que sofremos de assédio], we thought, 'Harvey can do this because he has a lot of power, he's successful, his films are going well, everyone wants to work with him,' "he said.
It was about a year and a half ago that a wave of denunciations made Harvey Weinstein the most-mentioned name among sex offenders in Hollywood. In recalling this moment, Madonna says she thought, "Finally."
"I did not celebrate very much because I do not like celebrating the end of someone, but it was positive that someone who has abused so many people for years has been accused and blamed," he said.
