Jessica Mann, who alleged that Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted and raped her on several occasions, was let off the stand after reportedly suffering a panic attack during cross-examination.

The presiding judge cut Mann's testimony short and adjourned the trial on Monday after she was questioned for five hours by Weinstein's lawyer Donna Rotunno, according to a Vulture report.

As the former actress was questioned at the stand over why she remained in touch with the former movie mogul despite his alleged sexual assaults on three occasions, she broke down in tears.

The 34-year-old also admitted during her testimony that she was "manipulative" toward Weinstein and that he had introduced her to his daughter just one day after allegedly raping her.

The woman testified that Weinstein had once asked her if she'd "ever had a golden shower" before urinating on her. Addressing Manhattan Supreme Court jurors, Mann alleged that the pair were in a shower together at a Los Angeles hotel when the incident took place.

"We were in the shower. He wanted to shower first which was beneficial to me… and he asked me to come into the shower and then he said to me, 'Have you ever had a golden shower?' and I said, 'No', and then I felt him peeing on me," Mann recalled.

She made the claims during cross-examination over her testimony last week that Weinstein had once peed on her.

Defense lawyer Donna Rotunno tried to suggest that Mann continued to see the Weinstein for her own benefit. She asked her during the trial if she left following the incident. "No," Mann responded.

Rotunno further prodded the accuser, asking her if she said, "No thanks." "I was in shock by it. It was gross… I turned into the corner of the shower and just looked away," Mann said.

Rotunno pointed out to Mann how she had changed her phone number on at least five occasions between 2013 and 2017 but sent her updated contact details to Weinstein every time.

"The reason, Miss Mann, is because you still wanted the benefit of what he had to offer," Rotunno said. Mann responded by saying, "That's your version."

Last week, a tearful Mann told the court how Weinstein had allegedly raped her twice — once at the Doubletree Hotel in Midtown on March 18, 2013, and another time later that year in Los Angeles.

As of now, Weinstein is only charged in the alleged March incident involving Mann. The former Hollywood bigwig is facing life in prison on predatory sexual assault and rape charges brought on by allegations of three women – Mann, former 'Project Runway' producer Miriam "Mimi" Haleyi and actress Annabella Sciorra.

However, Weinstein has maintained that all of his sexual encounters were consensual in nature.
