Ambra Battilana Gutierrez
Italian model Gutierrez is one of the few Weinstein accusers to publicly seek legal action: in 2015, she told New York authorities that Weinstein had groped her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt during a meeting in his Tribeca office. Police then gave Gutierrez a wire to wear so that she could attempt to wring a confession or incriminating comments from Weinstein during a subsequent meeting.
In the resulting audio, obtained by The New Yorker, Weinstein can be heard admitting that he groped her as he tries to cajole Gutierrez into coming into his hotel room: “Oh, please, I’m sorry, just come on in,” says Weinstein. “I’m used to that. Come on. Please. . . I won’t do it again.” Manhattan’s District Attorney’s office ultimately declined to file charges against Weinstein.
