Gov. Newsom’s Wife Begins Testimony in Harvey Weinstein Trial


Gov. Gavin Newsom’s wife broke down in tears repeatedly as she testified Monday that former film producer Harvey Weinstein raped and sexually assaulted her 17 years ago, telling jurors that she felt like he had “taken a piece of me.”

Jennifer Siebel Newsom — who was referred to in court only as “Jane Doe #4” but has been publicly identified by her attorney — told jurors in Weinstein’s sexual assault trial that she agreed to meet him at The Peninsula in Beverly Hills, but said she was “confused” and “a little hesitant” when she got a message from his assistant directing her to meet him in his suite in September 2005.

The documentary filmmaker and actress said Weinstein didn’t seem interested in talking to her about her projects and told her that he was “going to get more comfortable” before he summoned her to the hotel suite’s bathroom with a call for help.
