The Weinstein Company Knew About Harvey's Settlements With Victims For YEARS!

The Weinstein Company Knew About Harvey's Settlements With Victims For YEARS!

On Wednesday, as Harvey Weinstein prepared to leave Los Angeles and check into a residential treatment facility following allegations of sexual harassment and assault from several women, he stopped to speak to reporters about his current state of mind.

Though dozens of women have told stories of sexual predation by the Hollywood mogul in the past week, beginning with reports in the New York Times and the New Yorker that blew the story open, Weinstein has never been criminally charged. This week, The New Yorker published its own story, that revealed more allegations of sexual misconduct against Weinstein, including that he raped actress and filmmaker Asia Argento by forcibly performing oral sex on her. Weinstein denied those allegations in a statement released by his representative. "You know, what? We all make mistakes".

"I got to get help", the former film executive said. "And, you know, like so many people who've come forward and spoken out, this was a different side of a person who I and many others had known in the past".

The actress said she was called to meet with the movie mogul at the hotel when she was 17 years old.

According to The New York Times, back in 2015, the company was informed of at least three or four settlements.

In addition, Ashley Judd, Mira Sorvino, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie have been among the more high-profile celebrities to go on the record about their alleged encounters.

Weinstein's wife Georgina Chapman announces she is leaving him and that her priority is her young children.

A number of senior Labour MPs call for Weinstein's honorary CBE to be taken away.

In the wake of the scandal, Weinstein - who has denied numerous allegations against him - is believed to have checked into rehab, and his wife Georgina Chapman has left him, while he has also been slammed by big names in Hollywood, including Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet, George Clooney, Angelina Jolie, and Dame Judi Dench. None had yet been found, but police say they encourage anyone with information on Weinstein to report it. Weinstein was not there when officers arrived. The NYPD does not provide further details.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' board said it would hold a special meeting Saturday to discuss the allegations against Weinstein and what, if any, course of action it should take.

Weinstein won the 1998 Best Picture Oscar as producer of Shakespeare in Love and was nominated for Gangs of NY in 2002.
