LOS ANGELES - A former actress accused Harvey Weinstein of exposing himself and forcing himself on her as a separate alleged victim publicly repeated rape allegations against the movie mogul who reportedly plans to stay in rehab for another month.

Heather Kerr, who appeared on 1980s US sitcom "The Facts of Life," claims Weinstein attacked her during a private meeting with the producer when she was an aspiring actress in her 20s.

The veteran producer, who resigned from the board of The Weinstein Company this week, having already been sacked as its co-chairman, has so far denied all allegations of forcing himself on his accusers.

An Italian model and actress who says Weinstein raped her after dragging her into the bathroom of her hotel suite in Beverly Hills in 2013 also spoke out about the attack Friday, through her lawyer Dave Ring.

Los Angeles police have confirmed they are looking into the case - the sixth rape allegation against Weinstein - adding to criminal investigations already underway in New York and London. - AFP
