Jodie Marsh says abusive television and film bosses in the UK will be exposed in the wake of the Harvey Winestein abuse scandal.
While Hollywood has been rocked by an article published by the New York Times earlier this month which alleged 65-year-old Harvey has made a string of unwanted sexual advances on actresses, the UK could be braced for a similar scandal involving powerful moguls.
Reality star Jodie, 38, claims she was approached by a predatory manager in the UK over a decade ago – reportedly stating on Friday in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal that she was “waiting for some more British ones to be outed now”.
Taking to twitter the star suggested one unnamed manager had been drugging young women and promising them fame and fortune if they sleep with them.
“His day will come. It’ll only take one girl to admit he plied her with drink & drugs and then hundreds will come forward. Mark my words,” she said in a since deleted tweet.
“… but I KNOW he’s been abusing girls for years saying ‘I’ll make you famous if you sleep with me’ & taking them back to hotels,” she continued.
“Too many powerful people covering up for other powerful people in showbiz unfortunately…. that’s why I hate the game & don’t do it anymore,” she wrote.
“Unless you’re willing to suck c*ck you won’t be given jobs IMO. It’s all a little click at the top of people who look after each other,” she wrote.
While the star did not name the alleged assailant in her tweets, she sparked a wave of interest from fans.
Defending her decision to raise the topic but not to name the alleged abuser, she reasoned: “My tweets might encourage someone he HAS abused to come forward,” she said.
Jodie is also quoted by the Daily Star as knowing who the unnamed individual is and claims he “tried it” with her over a decade ago.
“There’s one manager who’s been sexually harassing girls for years,” Jodie is quoted by the Daily Star.
“He tried it with me 15 years ago,” she is quoted as stating.
