While at the restaurant she said Harvey dismissed his assistant from the table: 'As she walked away, he said, "I know you were feeling what I was feeling when we met the other night" and then regaled me with offers of a lavish life filled with trips around the world on private planes etc IF I would be his girlfriend.'
She continued: 'Or, "We could just keep this professional." All I knew was not to offend this very powerful man and to get out of the situation as quick as possible.'
Minka added: 'I told him while flattered, I'd like to keep things professional.'
