Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, 24, is an Italian model of Filipino descent who competed in the Miss Italia 2010 pageant.
She claims Weinstein lunged at her breasts, groped them – then asked if they were real, and tried to put his hand up her skirt at his office in Manhattan in March 2015.
Ambra, then 22, went to cops to report his behaviour, where investigators from the NYPD’s Special Victims Division equipped her with a hidden microphone before she confronted Weinstein the next day at the nearby Tribeca Grand Hotel.
A chilling transcript from the police wire she wore during a police sting, Weinstein allegedly admitted to groping the model and said he was “used to” behaving that way.
Two weeks later, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance decided not to press charges, the New Yorker reported.
Gutierrez’s allegations come as it emerged the model had previously reported Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi to police after she claimed to have witnessed his lewd behaviour at one of his bunga-bunga sex parties.
In 2010, when she was 18, the Italian-Filipina model said she was invited to attend one of the “elegant soirées” parties hosted by Berlusconi, who was then 74.
The model reportedly gave statements to Italian authorities about Berlusconia who was being investigated for paying an under-age guest for s*x – a charge of which he was later acquitted.
Since the alleged Weinstein audio recording emerged, Gutierrez took to Instagram on Wednesday to share her thoughts.
She wrote: “Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves.
“We must believe we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”
