On Wednesday, The Los Angeles Times published an expose on Brett Ratner where six women accused him of sexual harassment and assault.

"She was 17 at the time and working as a production assistant on the set of the film" Death of a Salesman". "And before I literally could even figure out where to escape or where to look, he ejaculated", she detailed.

Ratner's deal with the studio has already expired, but the statement confirmed that the two parties will not be renewing their partnership. "At some point, I gave in and he did his thing", she explained, noting that she was only 19 at the time.

For Brett Ratner, his lawyer, Martin Singer has denied every one of the cases of sexual assault, and while the director himself keeps mum, he is suing Melani Kohler for defamation.

Anna Graham Hunter alleged in extracts from her 1985 diary and notes to her sister that Hoffman made vulgar remarks and jokes at her expense. Later on, Ratner identified himself as the director in question on TV, going so far as to claim he had sex with Munn, though later going back on that statement.

A strange clip of Brett Ratner and his then-girlfriend Serena Williams, from her 2005 reality series "Venus and Serena: For Real", is making the rounds online following accusations of sexual misconduct against the Hollywood producer and director. "And I really believe Jared can do it. He's one of the great actors of today". What's 'absurd' is his mouthpiece calling harassment 'giving a compliment.' It shows a pattern of disregard for women because what he wants is more important.

He has not commented publicly on the allegations, and journalists at NPR report that they have tried to contact him for comment, without success. When they went to meet him, he would inevitably have a picnic and Champagne ready on the stage, "all beautifully lit up", he said.

The lawsuit alleges that Kohler's post caused Ratner to suffer "emotional distress, worry, anger, and anxiety", and had damaged his personal and professional reputation.
