PARIS, France – Five women have accused French film magnate Luc Besson of being sexually assaulted and harassed after Wednesday's six-month report when a new actress claimed to have been raped.
New claims by students in the Paris School of Film School, the former model and former employees, raise nine women who have filed complaints Fifth element.
These include one of their former personal assistant who told the French media site Mediapart that she seems to have sex with her luxury Paris hotels.
Besson's lawyer and his manufacturing company EuropaCorp refused to comment on the new requirements that AFP contacted.
His former assistant said that he had invited him to dinner at his hotel suite at Meurice when she was homeless and had appealed to friends who were looking for a job.
He said he would be her "guard" and asked her to sit on his lap and give him a "little kiss".
"I do not know why I let it in with me," she said of the unconventional sex she allegedly followed.
"I've been PETRIFIED"
"I was confused," she said to Mediapart. "At that time, I had such a positive idea of him, because it was a living god for me."
Besson is one of the most influential players in the French film industry, including an international hit piece Big Blue and Nikita and has its own studio on the edge of Paris.
His 2017 science fiction epic Valerian and a thousand planetary cities was the most expensive European film ever made with a budget of € 158 million.
But on May 27, a Belgian-Dutch actor Sand Van Rina, 27, told the police that the 59-year-old Besson had raped her with her repudiation with the producer and director.
Van Roy, who has ever appeared in Beson's films, including Valerian, said she had a pressure on sex to keep her roles.
Bessons has categorically rejected demands that his lawyer Thierry Marembert has condemned as "a fantastic accusation."
In July, the director of Casting, who often worked with Besson, told Mediapart that he had attacked her "every time I picked up a lift" and that he also claimed from her a sexual advantage.
Two other women also said that Besson had "mistreated" with one actress, arguing that she should escape from her office in Paris in her arms and knees.
Among the new claims, the theater producer Karine Isambert said she was captured at a meeting in London hotel rooms in 1995 when she was looking for a model that was hoping to start a career.
Two former Besson Cite du Cinema film school schools also accused her of being harassed and a former employee of his company, EuropaCorp, said that he had kissed and behaved improperly with her.
