The New Yorker published a report on Harvey Weinstein on Tuesday, that alleges the embattled mogul raped three women, including actress Asia Argento.

The story, written by Ronan Farrow, claims Weinstein forcibly performed or received oral sex and also forced vaginal sex on women.

"I know he has crushed a lot of people before," Argento said in the story. "That's why this story -- in my case, it's 20 years old, some of them are older -- has never come out."

In addition, the New Yorker piece also reports that four women experienced unwanted physical contact with Weinstein, that "could be classified as an assault."

Weinstein representative Sallie Hofmeister on Tuesday responded to the The New Yorker story.

"Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein," Hofmeister told The New Yorker.

The New Yorker story comes on the heels of a piece last week in the New York Times that detailed numerous instances of alleged harassment and financial settlements spanning multiple decades. Weinstein was fired from the Weinstein Company on Sunday. The indie studio behind "The King's Speech" and "The Artist" will change its name as it tries to move forward from the scandal.

Farrow, an NBC correspondent, has been working on the story for months.
