Kaja Sokola (born May 04, 1986) is a Polish Former Model, Actress, Psychologist Psychotherapist, and Writer from Warsaw. She specializes in addiction and co-addiction psychotherapy.
Kaja garnered huge media attention after accusing the producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault. As per the source, more than 80 women accused him of sexual misconduct.
But he previously dismissed all accusations of non-consensual sex. In December 2017, Sokola first became the part of a federal class-action suit as Jane Doe. Harvey and his former film studio’s board have reached a $47 million USD settlement with several victims.
Controversy – Accused Harvey Weinstein of Sexual Assault
On December 19, 2019, the former model filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein (American former film producer). He is the co-founder of the entertainment company Miramax. Harvey previously owned the Walt Disney Co.
Furthermore, she accused him of sexual assault. Previously, Kaja filed the case and was identified as Jane Doe in an earlier class-action lawsuit. At the age of 16, she alleged in the New York State Supreme Court that the producer promised her to take her to lunch.
Moreover, Weinstein also told her that he wanted to discuss Sokola’s career. However, the producer drove her to his SoHo apartment in New York. As per the official reports, he aggressively and threateningly asked sex from the former model.
Harvey Weinstein forcefully tried to make Sokola touch his private part against her will. He even grabbed her breast and instructed her to take off her clothes. During an interview with The Times, Kaja said that this lawsuit cannot eradicate the pain that she has been living with for 17 years.
But the former model hopes to accomplish some justice that was earlier denied to Weinstein’s many victims. As of now, the representatives of the Miramax and Walt Disney Co. did not make any comment.
Benjamin Brafman (Weinstein’s former attorney) called the allegation patently false and uncorroborated last year. Kaja Sokola’s case is considered to be the first that claims he assaulted a minor.
