According to the girl, the violence experienced affected her later life.
Polish model Kaia Sokola has become perhaps the youngest of those who accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of harassment. At the time when the giant of the American film industry unambiguously showed his interest to her, the girl was only 16 years old, according to Page Six.
Kaia met Harvey in 2002 at a modeling event. When she mentioned in conversation that she was interested in an acting career, the then 50-year-old Weinstein invited her to dinner a few days later. However, on the appointed day, he took her not to a restaurant, but to his apartment, where he began to molest her. Falcon tearfully fought back from a man who blocked the door and shouted that she needed to calm down and work on her stubbornness.
According to her, after what she had experienced for a long time, it was very hard for her, about which Kaya, who became a psychologist, told at the New York Film Festival.
“When you're a kid, you don't know any better, at least I was full of confidence. I was in my house full of love and safety, and then I ended up here all alone. Now is not the time to talk, but the fashion industry is not the best. So yeah, it definitely hurt me in a lot of ways, and I'm not just talking about sexual abuse, I'm talking about the destruction of my dreams, my dignity, my identity.”
Kaya is currently working on a book. According to her, the rape had an impact on her later life:
“I know that many of the choices I made later in my life, the relationships that I continued, were based on trauma, codependency and emotional abuse “.
At the premiere of the film, there was another alleged accuser of Weinstein – model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez. She went to the police to file a complaint when Weinstein reportedly raped her in 2015, inviting her over under the pretense of looking through her portfolio.
Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison for rape and sexual harassment. About the crimes of the producer and show business tycoons, they openly spoke after the release of the book “She Said”, which was written by New York Times journalists Jody Cantor and Megan Tuhy. They even made a film about their investigations, which is released in theaters on November 18.
