"I support Cy Vance, I will endorse Cy Vance for re-election, and I don't understand the controversy", James said, according to a tweet by a reporter.

Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance spoke at an event at John Jay College in Midtown on Wednesday.

The model, Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, brought allegations against Weinstein more than two years before last week's report in the New York Times unleashed a wave of allegations - some from A-list movie stars - spanning decades.

Vance - who has faced a wave of criticism recently for his 2015 decision to toss the Weinstein case and for dropping a probe into the Trump family - insisted he was guided by the law in the case and said he has no regrets.

Police were approached by Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, an Italian actress who accused Weinstein of groping her at a business meeting.

The British actress and model Cara Delevingne is the latest to accuse Weinstein of inappropriate behaviour.

She said in a statement her "heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions".

"I, like they, were very disturbed by the contents of the tape".

Weinstein stands accused of rape by multiple women, according to an explosive new story by The New Yorker magazine. On the same day, his wife Georgina Chapman said she was leaving him. His spokesperson has since said any allegations of non-consensual sex are "unequivocally denied".

"Subsequent investigative steps undertaken in order to establish intent were not successful". "I'm sorry, just come on in". Thanks to NYPD bungling, Freidman-Agnifilo concludes, their office had "no choice but to conclude the investigation without criminal charges". I'm used to that. "The detectives used well established investigative techniques", it said.

The Manhattan District Attorney's office, which is under fire for its handling of a sex assault allegation against Harvey Weinstein in 2015, is now urging other Weinstein victims to come forward.
