NYPD recording surfaces against producer Harvey Weinstein

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

More allegations have come out against Harvey Weinstein, and now new tapes that seem to back up some of the accusations have surfaced.

The audio, obtained by the New Yorker, stems from an NYPD sting back in 2015.

The model in the audio says the producer aggressively tried to get her to come to his hotel room.

According to a New York Times article, the accusers include several A-list celebrities, such as Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow.

"Many of these women feared the power that Mr. Weinstein had and were concerned if they took legal action and spoke out that he could ruin their careers," says attorney Gloria Allred.

The Manhattan district attorney released a statement, saying the audio wasn't enough to prove a crime and criminal intent.

It had to conclude the 2015 case without criminal charges.
