(NBC) -

There are new developments today surrounding one of the most powerful movie moguls in Hollywood, Harvey Weinstein. 

The New Yorker Magazine has published a report alleging that more than a dozen women have accused Weinstein of sexually assaulting harassing or assaulting them. 

The magazine also published an audio recording obtained from the NYPD of Weinstein and an Italian model. The conversation was captured during an NYPD sting operation in 2015. No charges were filed as a result of that sting. 

Weinstein's spokesperson released a statement today in part saying that any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances. 

The New York Times is reporting that Actresses Gwyenth Paltrow and Angelian Jolie allege they were harassed by Weinstein. 

Weinstein was fired on Sunday by the company he co-founded.
