Ms Perkins, in her latest comments, said she was repeatedly sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein, 65, and had to fend of barrage of "exhausting" sexual advances.

The publication revealed that Harvey and his brother had to give "hush-money" to two different female employees in England due to sexual harassment and assault.

The model told The New Yorker that she saw Weinstein's attorney shaking "and realized how big this was", but that she felt pressured to earn financial support for her mother and brother, so she signed the documents and took the money, agreeing to never talk about the incident again.

Speaking about the allegations, Ms Perkins has previously told journalists she was breaking a non-disclosure agreement to discuss the payment.

Gutierrez had told police the movie magnate touched her thigh, grabbed her breasts, and asked "are these real?" during a meeting in his Manhattan office on March 27, 2015. They ultimately settled, with Bob paying them the 250,000 pounds, to split evenly, in return for them signing non-disclosure agreements.

Bob Weinstein confirmed the personal payout during the New Yorker interview, but insisted that his brother misled him about what the money was being used for.

Perkins said that as soon as she threatened to sue Miramax, she received a barrage of pleading phone calls from company executives, including Weinstein.

"I only know what Harvey told me, and basically what he said was he was fooling around with two women and they were asking for money."
The agreement also required Disney to be notified of any sexual harassment settlements entered into by Weinstein. I was really disoriented.

Ultimately, Gutierrez said, she felt she had no choice to but accept a settlement.

Gutierrez said she struggled with an eating disorder and ultimately went with her brother to Italy, and then to the Philippines, as a way of starting over.

"I was forced by the fact that newspapers completely bashed me, by the fact that I was alone, by the fact that I was twenty-two years old", Gutierrez told the New Yorker.

Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.

"Because of the pending civil litigation and related investigations, it is inappropriate to respond specifically to each of the unsupported and untruthful insinuations contained in this article", the statement reads.
