actor Mel Gibson The producer could be called in to testify against Harvey Weinstein in the upcoming Los Angeles rape trial, a judge ruled Friday.
Prosecutors want to call the actor to support Jane Doe 3’s allegations that: Weinstein She was sexually assaulted after she gave him a massage at his hotel in 2010.
According to Deputy District Attorney Marlene Martinez, the woman later told Gibson about the incident during a massage, and Gibson’s testimony would help defend her claim.
Judge Lisa B. Wrench allowed prosecutors to call Gibson to the stands. The defense denied the defense’s request to be allowed to ask. Weinstein later claimed to have a grudge against Weinstein dating back to the release of The Passion of the Christ (2004), which was widely seen being played in The Passion of the Christ. Perspectives on the Passion” was published. “This created a feud between Mr. Gibson and Mr. Weinstein,” Weinstein’s attorney Mark Worksman claimed.
When Werksman inaccurately claimed that the film had won Best Picture at the Oscars, Weinstein gestured no with an arm and a look of contempt. By becoming a champion, he is trying to restore his image.
According to his attorney, Gibson told investigators he had a “PTSD reaction” when Jane Doe 3 brought up the name Harvey. The woman stopped massaging and started crying, and she “thinks Weinstein may have sexually assaulted her,” Worksman said.
A conviction in LA could effectively guarantee him a life in prison.
