Another woman came forward on Wednesday to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of rape.

Natassia Malthe, an actress with dozens of credits, said the disgraced film mogul raped her in her London hotel room late at night in 2008.

At her second press conference in two days, attorney Gloria Allred introduced Malthe, who is one of at least half a dozen women to allege they were sexually assaulted by Weinstein.

Citing the mounting numbers of women, including some 50 claiming harassment, Allred urged The Weinstein Co. to set up an arbitrator-overseen settlement fund.

“It’s time for The Weinstein Co. to put their money where their mouths are,” said Allred, who is representing several of the alleged victims.

A representative for The Weinstein Co. and the film mogul himself did not immediately respond Wednesday to emails seeking comment about Malthe’s allegations.

Weinstein was fired from the company he co-founded earlier this month after The New York Times detailed decades of allegations of sexual harassment by several actresses, including Ashley Judd.
