Harvey Weinstein Plans To Keep Producing Movies With Or Without The Weinstein Company!

Hollywood may never wash itself of the prolific jizz stain that is Harvey Weinstein. The disgraced producer may be on the way out of his own company, but he isn't planning on leaving tinseltown for good. In fact, the alleged serial assaulter thinks industry creatives will seek him out once this pesky scandal blows over! If that [...] Hollywood may never wash itself of the prolific jizz stain that is Harvey Weinstein. The disgraced producer may be on the way out of his own company, but he isn't planning on leaving tinseltown for good. In fact, the alleged serial assaulter thinks industry creatives will seek him out once this pesky scandal blows over! If that doesn't showcase his persistence, Harvey is also refusing to give up on his future with The Weinstein Company -- despite being fired from his position earlier this month. Related: Dumb And Dumber Star Says Weinstein Encounter Ruined Her Career! The movie mogul is set for a Tuesday morning conference call with the Board of Directors to make the case that he was illegally fired and has a right to take back control. His lawyer Patty Glaser will be in the NYC meeting with the Board while Weinstein will be calling in via speakerphone. TMZ sources say the pervy producer knows he's "momentarily toxic," but thinks writers, directors, and actors will seek him out again once things cool down. Due to his award-winning track record, the industry vet believes that TWC wouldn't exist if it wasn't for him. But even outside of TWC, the producer believes he can easily return to making movies somewhere else. One insider explained: "Harvey's like Judge Judy. She can do her show for CBS, but if she wanted to go to NBC she can do it because it's all about her." Eh. Judge Judy didn't sexually harass half her defendants, so we're not sure that comparison would hold up in court. Related: Mayim Bialik Responds To Backlash From Weinstein Article Speaking of court, Weinstein may end up in a legal battle with his former company if the Board of Directors does not let him make his case on Tuesday. Apparently, there are whisperings that the Board may fire Weinstein as the first order of business and throw his lawyer out of the room before he even gets a word in. If that's the case, sources say the producer will 100% go to arbitration or court. Either way, things are about to get more dramatic than a Weinstein-produced picture.

Another Harvey Weinstein Accuser Speaks Out — As Attorney Gloria Allred Compares The Scandalized Producer To Bill Cosby!

Another woman has come forward to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment. Former filmmaker Louisette Geiss (above, left) claims the disgraced producer used a meeting about one of her films at the Sundance Film Festival to proposition her into watching him jerk off. Speaking from her attorney Gloria Allred's (above, right) offices on Tuesday, Geiss said in [...] Another woman has come forward to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment. Former filmmaker Louisette Geiss (above, left) claims the disgraced producer used a meeting about one of her films at the Sundance Film Festival to proposition her into watching him jerk off. Speaking from her attorney Gloria Allred's (above, right) offices on Tuesday, Geiss said in 2008, Weinstein invited her to the premiere of Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden. Related: Harvey's Scandal Has Fans Call For Boycott Of His Wife's Marchesa Line! After the screening, she agreed to meet him back at the restaurant hotel where they were both staying, but they were turned away because it was closing. Weinstein then innocently suggested they meet in his office attached to his hotel room. Fully aware of the rumors about the movie mogul, Geiss was hesitant at first, but agreed to join only as long as Weinstein promised he would not touch her. They even shook on it. At first, Geiss contends the meeting was great -- the two ended up having a "great conversation" about her movie, for which Harvey "seemed genuinely interested." But before the deal was sealed, the producer excused himself to go to the bathroom and re-emerged wearing a bathrobe -- under which, Geiss recalls he was "buck naked." Things got pretty weird from there. Geiss said Weinstein asked her to watch him masturbate and when she tried to leave, he grabbed her arm and "pleaded [she] watch him masturbate." If she agreed, Weinstein said he'd introduce her to Bob Weinstein (the nice brother you want to meet, apparently) and, according to Geiss, "green light [her] script, but [she'd] have to watch him masturbate." Related: Gwyneth Paltrow Reveals Harvey Tried To Proposition Her After that, Geiss left. Not just the hotel room, but the movie industry completely. Allred, Geiss' attorney, said she's heard from several other women who say they are victims of unwanted advances from Weinstein, and that the statute of limitations for each alleged encounter has since expired. To show some mercy, Allred is "inviting [Weinstein] to agree to engage in an arbitration of these claims with these women" with an agreed upon retired judge. The attorney says the proposal is "similar to what [she] suggested to Bill Cosby" amid his sex scandal -- but the comedian "was not wise enough" to agree to it. Allred notes that Weinstein will be smart to agree if he ever intends on returning to Hollywood one day, as an arbitration could be a "positive step he could take to restore his battered reputation." We'd say Weinstein has nothing to lose , as his scandal already looks to be turning into the full Cosby. [Image via Facebook.].....»»

Harvey Weinstein Accused Of Raping THREE Women In Explosive New Yorker Exposé

As you likely know, the indie movie mogul has been fired from his company, The Weinstein Company, following The New York Times' exposé detailing three decades of sexual harassment allegations. While we knew journalist Ronan Farrow was conducting his own investigation into the matter for The New Yorker, we didn't realize his piece would contain allegations of rape against the scandalized producer. Related: George Clooney & Kevin Smith Denounce Harvey! Man, oh man. On Tuesday, The New Yorker published an explosive piece which alleges that Weinstein raped three women, including actress Asia Argento. Per Farrow's account, the industry vet forcibly performed and/or received oral sex. Harvey has also been accused of having forced vaginal sex with women. That is so disturbing on so many levels. On why Harvey is only just being exposed now, Argento explained to Farrow: "I know he has crushed a lot of people before. That's why this story—in my case, it's twenty years old, some of them are older—has never come out." Smh. How awful. The piece goes on to confirm that, in addition to the alleged rapes, four women have accused the disgraced filmmaker of forcing unwanted physical contact. Specifically, Weinstein is said to have exposed himself to female victims or masturbated in front of them. This is almost identical to the claims made by the Times. Weinstein has since denied the rape accusations as his spokesman noted in a statement: "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. Mr. Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual." It's said Farrow has been working on this piece for months. Be sure to read the FULL story for yourself HERE! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Bob & Harvey Weinstein Are Expected To Get Into An EXPLOSIVE Fight At Upcoming Board Of Directors Meeting

As you surely know, Harvey Weinstein has been ousted from The Weinstein Company following his sexual misconduct scandal. Not to mention, according to reports, the disgraced Hollywood heavyweight blames his brother and (now former) business partner, Bob Weinstein for allegedly leaking internal documents detailing decades of sexual harassment allegations to the New York Times. Related: Emma Thompson Slams "Predator" Weinstein While Bob hasn't confirmed this gossip, the 62-year-old has publicly denounced his brother and made it perfectly clear that he in no way condones his flesh-and-blood's behavior. Thus, a showdown is expected when the two brothers both tune in for TWC's Board of Directors meeting. Per TMZ, the Board of Directors has a meeting scheduled for Tuesday where they plan to discuss Harvey's firing. Reportedly, the scandalized industry titan will be present at the meeting via a speakerphone. In case you forgot, Harvey is currently in an Arizona based rehab facility where he is seeking treatment for sex addiction. The movie mogul's lawyer, Patty Glaser, will be in the room at the time of the meeting. It's said Glaser plans to address several points which prove that Harvey's firing violated his contract. Supposedly, TWC never gave Harvey a clear cut reason as to why he was being let go. Right, because it's ~such~ a mystery. *Eye roll* What's even crazier is that the attorney plans to argue that the elder Weinstein did nothing to violate his contract. As you may've heard, a provision was added to Harvey's contract back in 2015 which covers claims such as sexual harassment. The only requirement? Harvey was required to reimburse the company for any settlement and/or legal fees. Oh, and he'd have to pay a fine too. Related: Why Kate Winslet Refused To Thank Harvey In Oscar Speech! Since there were no claims brought against Harvey following the contract negotiation, his employment document should protect him. TWC isn't buying this defense as their code of conduct is what allowed them to let Harvey go. This contract dispute is likely to wind both Weinsteins up. It's believed that Bob, who is said to naturally be hot tempered, is livid about the drama and is expected to go off during the conference call. To make matters worse, if the company is unwilling to go through mediation and arbitration, Glaser will file a lawsuit on Harvey's behalf. An insider told the webloid: "There is so much crap that will be unearthed in a lawsuit, the company just can't survive it." Dramaaaaaa.

Model Zoe Brock Details Being "Harveyed" By Harvey Weinstein — Read Her Upsetting Account HERE

Following the explosive New York Times exposé which detailed the indie movie mogul's decades of sexual harassment, several women have come forward to discuss their unsavory experiences with Weinstein. One of the latest people to speak out is model Zoe Brock. Related: Nelly Responds To Sexual Assault Arrest It's been 20 years since Miz Brock's encounter with Harvey, but she clearly remembers how he allegedly lured her back to his hotel room and begged for a massage. Now, if you read the Times coverage, you know that was Weinstein's total M.O. Per Zoe's Medium post, she was only 23 years old when she was "Harveyed." Apparently, the New Zealand-born beauty met Weinstein in 1997 while they were both at the Cannes Film Festival. She revealed: "I met Harvey Weinstein in Cannes at the Film Festival. We were seated next to each other at a fancy dinner. I didn't catch his name and assumed I was talking to another hungry producer trying to sell a little movie to the big wigs. Feeling sorry for him, I went out of my way to be entertaining and nice. It wasn't until later in the meal that I asked the name of his production company." After learning that they had a mutual friend in common, the two industry professionals spent some time together at the film festival. Zoe continued: "With a dear mutual friend in common I felt safe with Harvey. The night was young and so was I. After dinner our large group, which included my Italian modeling agent, a few rich douchebags, some decorative models, and Harvey's entourage, rolled out into the Cannes night. Black town cars and gleaming limos took us to various parties where we glittered and shone like everyone else. Harvey and his assistant, Ben Silverman, never left my side." While the conversation between Zoe and Harvey could've been misconstrued as flirtatious, Brock insists that she only felt "platonic energy" for him. Which makes it so much more troubling that Weinstein and his assistant seemingly manipulated it so that she was separated from her friends: "My group was ushered into one car and I was somehow separated from them and told to get into another car with Harvey and his two friends. Stupidly, I obliged. I was told we were all going to the same place. To this day I do not know if my Italian agent was in on the ruse. My instincts tell me he was." How awful. Things only got worse for Zoe as she relayed: "The energy shifted and I became very uncomfortable... And suddenly I was alone in a remote hotel suite with Harvey fucking Weinstein. My body went into high alert. I was drunk, young, miles from home, without cash to get a cab, and no cell phone... It was time to sober up, and fast." To make matters worse, Harvey moved quickly to proposition Zoe as he was naked and asking for massage almost as soon as they were alone. The model added: "Harvey left the room, but not for long. He re-emerged naked a couple of minutes later and asked if I would give him a massage. Panicking, in shock, I remember weighing up the options and wondering how much I needed to placate him to keep myself safe. He asked if I would like a massage instead, and for a second I thought this might be a way to give him an inch without him taking a mile. I told him I was uncomfortable and that I was angry that I had been tricked into this position. He pleaded with me to let him massage me and I let him put his hands on my shoulders while my mind raced." In an attempt to escape the filmmaker, Zoe locked herself in the bathroom as Harvey pleaded with her to come out. After reprimanding Harvey through a locked door, Brock eventually emerged and found Weinstein whimpering on the bed: "Harvey, contrite, promised to cover himself and leave me alone. I came out of the bathroom and found him sitting on his bed, wearing a bathrobe, crying. 'You don't like me because I'm fat.' He whimpered." Tsk, tsk. Supposedly, the assistant tried to apologize as Zoe has claimed he told her: "'I'm so sorry,' he said. 'I want you to know that of all the girls he does this to you are the one I really felt bad about. You deserve better.'" Ben Silverman, if you're reading this, SHAME ON YOU. Smh. According to Zoe, Weinstein let her stay at his suite at the Majestic Hotel. However, after a friend warned her that Harvey would be back in the morning, the brunette fled the hotel room at 6 a.m. In an attempt to downplay the scandalous nature of their encounter, Harvey sent Zoe red roses and booked a private movie screening for her at the festival. Both presents were unwanted. Be sure to read Zoe's full account for yourself HERE. [Image via Facebook/WENN.].....»»

I have told him the times have changed, it is 2017, and he needs to evolve to a higher standard. I have found Harvey to be refreshingly candid and receptive to my message. He has acknowledged the mistakes he has made. … He is an old dinosaur and learning new ways,” she said.

Harvey Weinstein May Have Been Illegally Terminated By The Weinstein Company!

According to TMZ, Harvey Weinstein's 2015 employment contract with The Weinstein Company states that if the producer gets sued for any kind of "misconduct" that results in a settlement or judgement against the company, he simply has to reimburse TWC for the damages, and he keeps his job. Related: Harvey Weinstein's Former Assistant Speaks Out The legal papers also state: "You [Weinstein] will pay the company liquidated damages of $250,000 for the first such instance, $500,000 for the second such instance, $750,000 for the third such instance, and $1,000,000 for each additional instance." Basically, the 65-year-old could pay his way out of trouble! Although the Board of Directors did fire Weinstein on Sunday, his termination may have been illegal. The contract says Harvey can be fired if he's indicted or convicted of a crime (not the case), if he committed "material fraud against the company" (again, not the case), and even if he did commit fraud, he has the right to arbitration (which he didn't get). A source connected with TWC claims the Board has a right to can the mogul if he didn't disclose his alleged sexual harassment settlements, but there have been no reported settlements since he signed his contract. As we reported on Wednesday, the disgraced exec traveled from Los Angeles to Arizona where he is -- according to TMZ -- staying at the Phoenician Resort before he starts rehab at a facility near Scottsdale. A People source says he is staying at the five-star hotel because "he doesn't want to go a place where he can't use his cell phone." This guy... [Image via WENN.].....»»

On Thursday, actress Claire Forlani took to Twitter to reveal that she escaped sexual harassment from Weinstein on FIVE different occasions. How awful!!! Related: The Weinstein Co. Totally Knew About Harvey's Settlements With Victims! The 45-year-old, who appeared in the Miramax-distributed Boys and Girls, shared with her followers: "You see, nothing happened to me with Harvey — by that I mean, I escaped 5 times... I had two Peninsula Hotel meetings in the evening with Harvey and all I remember was I ducked, dived and ultimately got out of there without getting slobbered over, well just a bit. Yes, massage was suggested. The three dinners with Harvey I don't really remember the time period, I was 25. I remember him telling me all the actresses who had slept with him and what he had done for them. I wasn't drinking the cool aid [sic], I knew Harvey was a master manipulator. He also announced to me at the last dinner I had with him at Dominic's that his pilot knew to be on standby because he could never get me to sleep with him, to which I did what I always did, make light of the situation, a joke here or there and moved on. You see, I always thought I was a pro at handling these guys, I'd had a fair amount of experience. Sometimes I got angry, really angry. I wondered why I had Prey stamped on my forehead but this I kept to myself." We feel just awful for Miz Forlani. Although the Meet Joe Black star wanted to speak out against Weinstein for Ronan Farrow's New Yorker piece, she ultimately decided not to comment for the story. Why?? Well, because, her friends advised her not to. The Meet Joe Black star definitely regrets not speaking with Farrow, as she continued: "[Farrow] didn't mention that it was about Harvey but when I received the email I instinctively knew it was going to be. I told some close men around me and they all advised me not to speak. I had already told Ronan I would speak with him but from the advice around me, interestingly the male advice around me, I didn't make the call. Today I sit here feeling some shame, like I'm not a woman supporting other women. I just read Mira Sorvino's article in Time and she writes of how scared she was to speak out and participate. I take little solace in that." We're just proud that Claire is speaking out now. Sadly, Forlani's experience with Weinstein isn't the only negative one she has faced in Hollywood. Per Claire's statement, she had another "disgusting" encounter with a director who harassed Thandie Newton. She added: "I remember when Thandie Newton spoke out about a director that I had also had a disgusting experience with and I felt scared even reading what she said publicly about him, thinking, ‘Damn, she's gonna get crucified for that. 'Yet I was in awe for her bravery and balls, she was a female crusader, modern suffragette and I loved her for it. But I also knew I didn't have those balls, too scared of the repercussions this was because when you did react or tell a man to shove it, there were always repercussions. I was punished when I was brave. So I learned to let it go and carry on." Don't be so hard on yourself, Claire! There's no easy way to take on a predator. Hopefully, there are enough admissions that have come out to solidify the indie movie mogul's excommunication from Hollywood. Fingers crossed.

The investigative journalist has been making the press rounds ever since his New Yorker article helped expose decades of sexual harassment and alleged rape caused by the indie movie mogul. As we previously reported, Ronan already opened up about his investigation to NBC's Nightly News and PBS NewsHour. Related: Cara Delevingne Details Being Harassed By Weinstein On Wednesday, Farrow continued his visit with the press as he stopped by the Today show to further shed light on his 10 month long investigation. During his Today interview, Ronan shared: "Each of these sources really tore their guts out giving these horrifying details...This was a traumatic experience to relive these events and there's very little upside for them." In case you were unaware, the 29-year-old interviewed 13 women who claim they've been victims of Weinstein spanning from the '90s until now. As Weinstein's spokesperson has since denied the allegations made in Farrow's explosive exposé, Ronan has simply this to say to Harvey's camp: "The women themselves over and over again tell a very different story." As for why these accusations are coming to light after being buried for decades, Ronan credits the admissions to "profound guilt" and a change in the culture. While chatting with Rachel Maddow on Tuesday, Mia Farrow's son noted: "Of these 16 executives and assistants who talked to me, over and over again I heard from them, 'We feel a profound sense of guilt about what we saw and our silence about it for years.' A female employee who said she was asked to serve as—she used the term a honey pot—in meetings, meaning she would be present to reassure some of these young women who were being brought in that this was professional and then would be asked to leave the hotel room or other room." Ugh. What a job. He continued: "I talked to multiple, multiple employees who said we saw fear in these women's eyes. That is something that haunted a lot of these people. None of them quit as a result—I think that haunted them, too, and you know even still to this day some of them spoke only and honestly, so this is tough issue." We can't even begin to imagine the guilt they've felt over the years. Nonetheless, many are curious as to why Ronan published this investigative story with The New Yorker, rather than NBC (where he is a contributing journalist). Apparently, Ronan's take on the scandal was supposed to air on NBC around the Oscars in February. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Ronan did an extensive amount of research in the NBC office, but when his contract expired, he got wrapped up in negotiations with the network. Sources claim Farrow even lined up a sit down with Weinstein victim Rose McGowan. Sadly, the actress' legal team pulled consent for the interview as it put her at risk of violating her settlement with the 65-year-old. Related: Harvey's Wife IS Leaving Him! Weinstein's lawyers reportedly tried to block Farrow from bringing his research with him from NBC News to The New Yorker. This report is pretty believable as Farrow says he was even "threatened with a lawsuit personally." As for the suggestion that his piece wasn't publishable during his time at the network, the reporter relayed: "I walked into the door at The New Yorker with an explosively reportable piece that should have been public earlier. And immediately, obviously, The New Yorker recognized that. And it is not accurate to say that it was not reportable. In fact, there were multiple determinations that it was reportable at NBC." There's certainly a conflicting view as to whether Ronan's story was airtime ready as some sources claim the reporter had several victims willing to anonymously tell their Weinstein stories on camera, but others state his New Yorker piece is "radically different" to what he had at NBC. Huh. Before you rush to any conclusions, NBC News president Noah Oppenheim wants the public to know the following: "We launched [Ronan] on that story, we encouraged him to report that story. We supported him and gave him resources to report that story over many, many months. The notion that we would try to cover for a powerful person is deeply offensive to all of us... we were on that long list of places that chased this thing, tried to nail it but weren't ultimately the ones who broke it. We reached a point over the summer, where as an organization, we didn't feel that we had all the elements that we needed to air it." At the end of the day, this investigation is far from over as more victims have been coming forward daily. Be sure to stay tuned for any all updates! [Image via AEDT/WENN.].....»»

Bob Weinstein Responds to Amanda Segel’s Sexual Harassment Allegation

Bob Weinstein, who is Harvey Weinstein‘s brother, is responding to producer Amanda Segel‘s claim that he sexually harassed her during production of her show The Mist. “Variety’s story about Bob Weinstein is riddled with false and misleading assertions by Ms. Segel and we have the emails to prove it, but even if you believe what [...] Bob Weinstein, who is Harvey Weinstein‘s brother, is responding to producer Amanda Segel‘s claim that he sexually harassed her during production of her show The Mist. “Variety’s story about Bob Weinstein is riddled with false and misleading assertions by Ms. Segel and we have the emails to prove it, but even if you believe what she says it contains not a hint of any inappropriate touching or even any request for such touching. There is no way in the world that Bob Weinstein is guilty of sexual harassment, and even if you believed what this person asserts there is no way it would amount to that,” his lawyer said in a statement (via Deadline). In addition, The Weinstein Company said, “Bob Weinstein had dinner with Ms. Segel in LA in June 2016. He denies any claims that he behaved inappropriately at or after the dinner. It is most unfortunate that any such claim has been made.”’.....»»

Harvey Weinstein Was Almost Arrested By The NYPD In 2015 For Sexual Assault — Hear Audio From The Sting Operation!

Ronan Farrow wasn't the only one working to expose Harvey Weinstein. In fact, the NYPD was this close to busting the slimeball by setting up a sting operation with one of his accusers back in 2015.

In fact, the NYPD was this close to busting the slimeball by setting up a sting operation with one of his accusers back in 2015. Italian model Ambra Battilana (above) had agreed to record her conversation with the indie film producer on March 28, 2015 when the two met at the Tribeca Grand Hotel, just a day after she accused Weinstein of groping her breasts prodding his hand under her skirt. In the audio recording, which was obtained and published by the New Yorker in Tuesday's bombshell exposé, Weinstein can be heard profusely apologizing to Battilana and coercing her into coming up to his hotel room. An NYPD officer with knowledge of the case revealed to The Daily Beast that officers were on the scene and had hoped to catch the movie mogul in the act so they could arrest him on the spot. Related: Gwyneth Paltrow Reveals Harvey Tried To Proposition Her! But due to safety concerns, Battilana backed out at the last second and the pair returned downstairs where the captured argument was had. Weinstein was reportedly soon picked up by the detectives and taken in for questioning. Battilana, one of the eight women who allegedly received a settlement from the producer detailed in last week's New York Times report, first met Weinstein at a show he was producing in New York on March 2015. The entertainment mogul reportedly introduced himself to her and told her again and again that she looked like Mila Kunis. He scheduled a meeting with the aspiring actress the following day through her agency. She was sitting on the couch in his Tribeca office when he started staring at her breasts and asked if they were real. Battilana told authorities that shortly after, Weinstein lunged at her, groped her breasts, and tried to put his hand under her skirt. She said that he eventually stopped and then invited her to see Finding Neverland on Broadway with him the following night. Related: Harvey Once Made 'An Unwanted Advance' Towards Angelina Jolie! The model never showed up for the performance -- instead, she went to file a police report at an NYPD station over the alleged abuse. Working with undercover officers, Battilana arranged to meet Weinstein again at the Tribeca Grand. Wearing a wire to record her conversation with the alleged groper, Battilana caught Weinstein asking her up to his hotel room to watch him shower. After some protesting by the producer, she agreed to go upstairs -- but changed her mind in the hallway and begged him to let her leave. Hear the tense conversation for yourself (below): It's all over now, Harvey. [Image via Instagram/Derrick Salters/WENN.].....»»
