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

With Harvey Weinstein fired amid escalating allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct, the business he helped create is consumed not just with what he is accused of doing, but with what other company leaders knew and how they responded.

The Hollywood mogul and mega-Democratic fundraiser was booted from The Weinstein Co., the film studio he co-founded, on Sunday after a bombshell report from The New York Times disclosing the sexual harassment allegations from several women.

In response to the lengthy allegations made against Weinstein in the New Yorker and New York Times pieces, a spokesperson for Weinstein said, "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

An avalanche of claims of sexual harassment, assault and rape by the Hollywood heavyweight have surfaced since the publication last week of an explosive New York Times report alleging a history of abusive behavior dating back decades. "You know, what? We all make mistakes".

"I gotta get help", he added, before getting into a auto that was reportedly taking him to the airport. The actress said she applauds the women who have come forward with their stories.

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

After the episode, Maerov said, Harvey Weinstein refused to let the board review his personnel file directly. A third woman withholds her name from the article, the result of a 10-month investigation by the magazine. "In the movie I wrote", she said, "I ran away"'. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances. Prime Minister Theresa May says a decision about the honour would not lie with Downing Street.

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.

Overnight, police are called following a "family dispute" at the home of Weinstein's daughter.

British media say London police are investigating a sexual assault allegation against Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein was not there when officers arrived.

The organization said in a statement Wednesday that Weinstein's alleged conduct is "repugnant, abhorrent, and antithetical to the high standards of the Academy and the creative community it represents".

Gwyneth went on to win a Best Actress Oscar for Shakespeare In Love.
