CELEBRITY Harvey Weinstein

Ashley Judd was one of the first of many women to come forward with allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Currently in a defamation case, the disgraced media mogul is now arguing that the allegations be dropped because the two had a sex "deal."

According to reports from USA Today, Weinstein and Judd had an alleged agreement where he would be allowed to "touch" her if she was able to win an Academy Award. Using this as proof that he was not trying to defame the actor, rather he was trying to help her career. 

Judd's lawyers responded to the claims calling them "baseless" and that it was a "mock bargain."

Weinstein's lawyers then brought up evidence of his attempt to get Judd cast in roles including the female lead in 1997's 'Good Will Hunting,' saying this reflects "his motivation to advance her career, not ruin it," USA today reports. 

Weinstein is currently facing criminal sexual charges in New York. He has also been named in several other sexual harassment lawsuits.
