Harvey Weinstein has been hit with another lawsuit, this time by a woman who says, among other things, that the disgraced producer dictated emails while naked.

In the lawsuit filed Thursday, Sandeep Rehal says that she began working at The Weinstein Company in 2013, and worked as Weinstein’s personal assistant until February 2015.

During that time, the suit says, Rehal was subjected to “a personal and severe sexually hostile work environment” that was “defined endless offensive, degrading and sexually harassing actions, statements, and touching at the hands of her boss, Harvey Weinstein.”

Among the alleged offenses: that Weinstein dictated emails while naked.

“Throughout her employment with Defendants, Ms. Rehal was required, as a condition of her employment, to work with Harvey Weinstein when he was naked,” the suit reads. “On an almost weekly basis, she was required to take dictation of emails from him while he was naked.”

The suit also accuses Weinstein of “unwelcome touching,” and of calling Rehal a “c—” or “p—y” regularly.

Rehal’s suit also alleges that forced to do many “offensive chores to ‘assist’ in Harvey Weinstein’s sex life,” such as “manage to stock of Caverject shots for his erectile dysfunction” and to “clean up the semen on the couch in Harvey Weinstein’s office” on a regular basis.

“As a result of the hostile work environment caused by the incessant sexual harassment, Ms. Rehal has suffered, and continues to suffer from severe emotional distress, anxiety, depression, humiliation, fear, anguish and loss of self-esteem,” the lawsuit reads.

Alleging discrimination and harassment in addition to other counts, the suit seeks unspecified damages.

A spokeswoman for Weinstein told TheWrap, “

“Mr. Weinstein categorically denies these claims and his lawyers will respond in the appropriate legal forum proving they are untrue.  The evidence will show these claims for money are in the realm of a science fiction movie.”

TheWrap has  also reached out to The Weinstein Company, which is also named in the suit.

Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct by numerous women, accusations that he has denied.
