CA Guv’s Wife Accused Of Lying In Harvey Weinstein Trial

  • Jennifer Siebel Newsom lied about being raped by Harvey Weinstein because she can’t “square away” the fact she had “transactional” sex with the former movie mogul, his lawyers charged Thursday.
  • The wife of California Gov. Gavin Newsom — referred to throughout Weinstein’s current sexual assault trial as Jane Doe 4 — gave an “overly dramatized” performance on the stand to cover up the shame she felt for having consensual sex with Weinstein, defense attorney Alan Jackson said.
  • In his closing argument at Los Angeles Superior Court, Jackson said despite all of her education and “refinement,” Siebel Newsom had lied about her sexual tryst with Weinstein at a Beverly Hills hotel in 2005 “to cope” with a decision she’s not proud of.
