The New York Times is reporting new sexual abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein, including incidents dating back to the 1970s and a financial settlement the paper says the producer reached with a dancer in the 2000s.

A story published Monday included the accounts of four new accusers, including a woman, Hope Exiner d'Amore who told the paper Weinstein raped her in a hotel room in the late 1970s during a work trip.

Cynthia Burr, who had background roles in "Scarface" and "Lethal Weapon 2," accused Weinstein of forcing her to perform oral sex on him in the hallway.

Weinstein's representative Sallie Hofmeister repeated a statement that Mr. Weinstein denies all allegations of non-consensual sex.

The paper also reported allegations by dancer Ashley Matthau, who says Weinstein accosted her in a hotel room in Puerto Rico while she was filming "Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights" in 2004.

The paper reported she reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein after hiring a lawyer and being threatened by Weinstein's attorney with having her name dragged through the mud.
