"He thought he was the king of the world and that he could humiliate me without any repercussions", she said.

The woman at the centre of the allegations against actor Michael Douglas has finally spoken out, revealing the incident that prompted her to run crying from his apartment.

She claimed she was in a meeting room with Douglas when he "slid down the floor, unbuckled his belt and put his hand inside his trousers".

"At no time then did she express or display even the slightest feeling of discomfort working in our environment, or with me personally". During the report, Snow said Braudy claimed Douglas "repeatedly used inappropriate sexual language" and "harassed" her while she was an employee. Outside of the paper trail, Braudy said she told several acquaintances about the incident who were willing to go on record to bolster her story, but she was too intimidated at the time to follow through on any formal action against her employer.

She claimed: "Michael unzipped his chinos and I registered something amiss".

Douglas's second wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, whom he married in 2000, addressed the allegations in a guest appearance on ABC talk show "The View".

Douglas, 73, is the latest big-name celebrity accused of seamy behavior since a sexual harassment watershed began with the downfall of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein in 2017.

Braudy maintains that his indiscretions started with uncomfortable sexual discussions he'd have: talking about an affair with co-star Kathleen Turner, commenting on Braudy's sex life and her body. However, earlier this month, Douglas tried to get in front of the story by preemptively denying the claims as "a complete fabrication" to The Hollywood Reporter.

Ingestion accounted for 91 per cent of these reported exposures". Some videos showed people cooking with them. Tide has since issued a statement as well.

Douglas then added, "Maybe she is disgruntled her career didn't go the way she hoped and she is holding this grudge". "That is because at no time, and under no circumstance, did I behave inappropriately toward her". "I'm hurt, really hurt and offended and I wonder if people realise when you do something like this, it hurts a lot more than just one person". "And I was very scared". I remembered this woman: sophisticated intelligent, good sense of humor. "The most traumatizing experience, she said, took place during a one-on-one script meeting in his apartment, during which Douglas masturbated in her presence, prompting her to run home crying". As we reported, Catherine Zeta Jones' husband has vehemently denied Braudy's account. "I bet she screams in the sack".

"I made sure that I was never ever ever alone with him again", Braudy added, according to NBC News.

During a 1989 meeting in his NY apartment, Braudy claimed Douglas "unbuckled his belt and put his hand inside his pants".

Following the unwanted sexual encounter, Braudy was supposedly asked to sign a confidentiality agreement; her employment was terminated later that year.
