Australian model Zoe Brock is the latest to come out with her own account of sexual assault by Harvey Weinstein in the wake of The New York Times publishing the allegations.
Speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on UK chat show This Morning, she claims Harvey chased her round a hotel room while he was naked forcing her to lock herself in the bathroom.

Zoe was the impression she was meeting friends along with some of Harvey's entourage at his hotel, but her friends had been sent in completely the opposite direction.
“After we’d been there 10 or 15 minutes… people started leaving the room. So, one by one or two by two the dudes left until it was just down to Harvey’s assistant, Harvey and myself,” she explained.
At that point, the model admitted she knew “something was up” and preceded to ask the assistant what was going on and where her friends were. The assistant then left to check the lobby of the hotel to see if there was a problem.

That was when she was left alone with Weinstein and he left the room for a moment coming back fully naked.
“He chased me naked,” Zoe claims. She the locked herself in the bathroom while he was hammering on the door.
The 43-year-old was left “stranded” with no money or cell phone and had hoped there might be a phone in the bathroom.

She resorted to telling Harvey, “Put your clothes on, you naughty boy” which seemed to work.
When the model eventually came out of the bathroom she claims she found Harvey “sobbing”.

“He was sobbing and apologising and he said, ‘You don’t like me because I’m fat,’ while he was crying. That was a bizarre moment for me that I’ve never forgotten,” she claims.
“I wonder if it was an insight into this behaviour, his motivation and his upbringing. Was this a vulnerable for him or was he putting it on to try and seduce me into feeling sorry for him?” Zoe added.
