In the latest chilling discovery in the Harvey Weinstein ordeal, a video interview from 2005 has surfaced of Courtney Love issuing a public warning to women against him while on the red carpet for Comedy Central Roast. The singer-songwriter was asked to provide advice for young girls wanting to make it in Hollywood.
"Um, I'll get libelled if I say it," Love began, hesitant at first. "If Harvey Weinstein invites you to a private party in the Four Seasons, don't go."
