Michael Douglas' accuser Susan Braudy spoke out about her sexual misconduct allegations against the two-time Oscar victor on Friday's episode of Today. "I was humiliated", Braudy said of the alleged incident.
Now the accuser, Susan Braudy (who previously ran the NY office of Douglas' production company), has finally come forward in a piece from the Hollywood Reporter, which was penned by the publication's editorial director.
During a 1989 meeting in his NY apartment, Braudy claimed Douglas "unbuckled his belt and put his hand inside his pants".
"Michael unzipped his chinos and I registered something amiss", she recalls about the alleged incident, which is said to have happened in 1989.
Joshua Wong jailed for contempt of court in another 2014 case
Tian made the remarks after the region's high court sentenced "Occupy Central" activists to a few months in jail on Wednesday. Wong, who was just 18 in 2014, is now seeking to overturn a six-month sentence for a separate protest action.
However, she said she told three people in the immediate aftermath, according to THR, including Michael Wolff, who wrote the book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" and is a THR columnist. "He asked a producer, 'Why does Susan dress like a pregnant nun?' Another time I laughed loudly and he shouted to a group of agents, 'Oh yeah, she's a screamer!"
The Hollywood Reporter has published a detailed look at sexual harassment allegations that have surfaced against Oscar-winning actor Michael Douglas. "I'm bewildered why, after 32 years, this is coming out, now".
But Douglas himself was the first to bring Braudy's story forward when he spoke to Deadline via phone in for article titled "Michael Douglas Gets Out Front Of Potential Harassment Story To Preemptively Deny Sordid Accusation" published last week.
Braudy said after the incident, her work relationship with Douglas deteriorated rapidly. "'Keep saying your lawyer is out of town.' So Michael waited six months for my lawyer 'to return.'" Douglas has already denied the allegations, issuing a preemptive statement in which he described the story as "an unfortunate and complete fabrication". I bet she screams in the sack.' I protested, 'Please, don't talk like that.

Judge Aquilin said she didn't ask the media to be in her courtroom and doesn't understand why he's bringing up the complaints now. Nassar will be sentenced once it's over.
AN ex-employee of Michael Douglas yesterday claimed the actor performed a sex act in front of her. I've had up to 20 female executives who worked at my company in different areas over the years. "And I was very scared", Braudy said in an interview with "Today". I realized he thought he could do anything he wanted because he was so much more powerful than I was.
He said his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, "has been very supportive", and said that the accusation would damage the #MeToo movement that encourages women to speak up about sexual harassment and abuse.
She also claimed Douglas tried to get her to sign a confidentiality agreement, but managed to avoid putting pen to paper by saying her lawyer was out of town. 'Hey, thank you, you're good.
Douglas admitted to using "colorful language", in front of Braudy, but said, "none of it was directed at her". He also suggested that Braudy may be attacking him because she's disappointed her career didn't go the way she was hoping it would.
Dylan Farrow Details Her Allegations of Sexual Assault by Woody Allen
A CT state prosecutor at the time found probable cause to charge Allen but thought Farrow too fragile to face a celebrity trial. In 2013, Vanity Fair interviewed her about everything she went through. "But it's unfair and sad to me", Baldwin wrote.
She claimed the manner in which he did so was "part of the problem, as is his pretext of victimisation".
