Lupita Nyong’o is the latest Hollywood actress to come forward and accuse movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment. She wrote a powerful piece for the New York Times this week, where she detailed a pattern of predatory behavior. She said it started while she was a student at the Yale School of Drama, and alleges Harvey once invited her into his bedroom and offered her a massage.

Well, Weinstein is saying it’s all lies. He issued a specific statement in response to her claims, which is interesting considering he’s yet to respond to claims from other A-list celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow and/or Angelina Jolie.

“Mr. Weinstein has a different recollection of the events, but believes Lupita is a brilliant actress and a major force for the industry,” a representative for him told E! News. “Last year, she sent a personal invitation to Mr. Weinstein to see her in her Broadway show Eclipsed.”

According to reports, Weinstein is currently at a sex-addiction rehabilitation center in Arizona and will remain in treatment for at least one month.
