Kinky sex predator Harvey Weinstein demanded one of his alleged victims join him in a threesome — two months after she claims he raped her, a Los Angeles jury heard Wednesday.

Norwegian actress Natassia Malthe said she walked in on the disgraced producer another woman at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills in April 2008.

Testifying at Weinstein’s sexual assault trial, the model-turned-actress said she was tricked into going to the former big shot producer’s hotel suite under the guise he would talk to her about a movie part.

When she walked into the room, another woman was already inside with him.

“They were trying to get me to do a threesome with them,” Malthe said in tears. “I had already said I didn’t want to. … And this [woman] who I think is a prostitute is like, ‘Oh, she so shy,’ and her and Weinstein were laughing. And she gave him a blow job.”

Malthe claimed the other woman was “coaxing” her to put on a robe and join them.

“He has you by the f—king throat, knowing that if you don’t comply, that your career is down the drain … and that’s not right,” Malthe said of Weinstein.

During her testimony Malthe ­­— one of a parade of women to give testimony about Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct — said the incident happened two months after Weinstein allegedly raped her at a London hotel, around the same time as the 2008 British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards.

During that incident, Malthe alleged Weinstein forced himself into her hotel room and pushed her onto the bed. She said as he penetrated her vagina with his penis, she saw a big hole in his stomach.

Other accusers have described Weinstein’s sexual organs in various unflattering ways, after he had surgery to move his testicles into his thighs after contracting a disease known as Fournier’s gangrene.

During the encounter, Weinstein allegedly told her to think about “all the Oscars” people had won and “everyone had to go through him; meaning — comply.”

“It didn’t last long because I had zero response because I just played dead,” Malthe said. “He got off me and finished off himself. He ejaculated into his hand.”

The actress said during that time, Weinstein was referred to as ‘one phone call away Harvey’ because he could make or break careers as the most powerful person in Hollywood.

Malthe said she saw Weinstein about three or four years later at a party attended by Nicole Kidman and Lady Gaga, where he pulled her aside and told her, “I thought you were going to go to the tabloids,” meaning that she would sell a story about him.

When she replied she would never “mess around with the most powerful guy in Hollywood,” Weinstein allegedly replied, “It pays to be my friend.”

In another meeting in 2011, Malthe said she and a friend met Weinstein at a restaurant and he invited them to his New York office.

However, once they were inside Malthe said Weinstein tried to force her friend to perform oral sex on him. When her friend refused, Malthe claimed Weinstein pulled her into another room and pulled down his pants.

“He just unbuckled it and brings it out,” she said of Weinstein’s privates. “He whips it out.”

She said he groped her as he masturbated.

“I didn’t know how to respond,” Malthe said. “I was humiliated in front of my friend.”

During cross-examination, defense attorney Mark Werksman asked her about the alleged rape.

“You never actually told Mr. Weinstein you didn’t want to have sex that evening, did you,” the defense attorney asked.

“I did, I told him I don’t do the ‘casting couch thing,’” Malthe said, referring to a supposed practice of actors or actresses using sexual favors to get parts in films or other projects.

“You didn’t say no, or ‘Get off my bed.’ You said, ‘I don’t do the casting couch thing,’” Werksman asked.

“He’s very entitled and he just pushes you down,” Malthe replied.

“My question is did you ever actually say, ‘No, I don’t want to have sex with you Mr. Weinstein,’” Werksman pressed.

Malthe replied that she did not say no.

When asked why she decided to go to the Peninsula Hotel two months after the altercation, Malthe said, “I didn’t feel like I had a choice.”

Werksman asked if there was a point where she said to herself, “I can’t believe you’ve gotten me in this situation now for the fifth time. I’m outta here.”

Malthe replied no and said she still agreed to watch Weinstein take a shower.

“I was actually very nice to him because I wanted to help him,” Mathe said.

The trial continues Thursday. If convicted on all counts, Weinstein — who is already serving a lengthy sentence for sex crimes in New York — faces between 65 years and life in prison.
