Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the wife of California Gov. Gavin Newsom, sobbed as she described Harvey Weinstein’s “distorted” and “fish-like” genitals during her bombshell testimony at the disgraced movie producer’s sexual assault trial Monday.
Identified in court as Jane Doe 4, Siebel Newsom broke down in tears recounting how Weinstein allegedly raped her in 2005 at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills.
“I’m standing. I’m resisting,” she said. “Horror. I’m trembling. This is my worst nightmare. I’m just this blow-up doll that he’s just trying to masturbate off of.”
When asked by Deputy District Attorney Marlene Martinez to describe Weinstein’s physique, Siebel Newsom said: “Lots of bruises, markings, yellow and green, lots of stretch marks on his belly, very not physically fit at all. Looked uncircumcised and strange though, kind of fish-like, the penis, something was distorted in the testicles … Lots of skin, lots of skin down there.”
Siebel Newsom, a former actress, is the fourth woman to take the stand who has accused Weinstein of sexual assault in his trial at Los Angeles Superior Court.
Weinstein — who is already serving a 23-year sentence for rape and sexual assault in New York — is facing charges for allegedly sexually assaulting four women in Los Angeles between 2004 and 2013.
Siebel Newsom, 48, said she agreed to meet Weinstein at his hotel suite to discuss a film project, and because “he could make or ruin your career.”
Once they were alone in the room, however, Siebel Newsom said, Weinstein changed out of his suit into a robe, then started to “manipulate” and “threaten” her, while mentioning several actresses’ names.
She said Weinstein penetrated her private parts with his fingers and then his “deformed” penis.
Siebel Newsom tearfully said: “He knows this is not normal. He knows this is not consent,” adding at first Weinstein couldn’t get an erection.
“And then he puts part of his penis inside of me because he pushes me back against the bed,” she said. “It’s not staying in because his penis is so weird and messed up. He realizes this. I was just worried I was going to get some disease. It was so gross.”... (Read more)
