A woman who testified in court that Harvey Weinstein raped her had a panic attack on the witness stand and abruptly ended her testimony. 9News

She has said that Weinstein raped her after a period in which he befriended her, gave her a film script and invited her to parties for events such as the Oscars.

Mann said that she did and said certain things to Weinstein to protect herself and her budding acting career. "I guess you can say manipulation," she said. But Weinstein's attorneys have said the sexual incidents were consensual and have rejected prosecutors' stark predator versus prey dynamic."This is not about a young individual who was tricked by a master manipulator," Weinstein attorney Damon Cheronis said in opening statements about Mann. "You will see, get ready for it, an actual loving relationship in hundreds of emails and communications between Harvey Weinstein and Jessica Mann.

During cross-examination, Mann acknowledged that she met Weinstein voluntarily twice in New York in the hours and days after that incident.
