Harvey Weinstein scandal: Police called to 'family dispute' at Weinstein's daughter's home

Harvey Weinstein scandal: Police called to 'family dispute' at Weinstein's daughter's home

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".

"I gotta get help", he added, before getting into a auto that was reportedly taking him to the airport.

According to Hachette, titles under the Weinstein imprint will be published through the Hachette Books imprint.

Police spokesman Peter Donald said Thursday that investigators are reviewing police files to see if any women previously reported being assaulted or harassed by the media mogul.

New York City police detectives are taking a fresh look into sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

The department is also encouraging anyone with information to come forward.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane addresses a joke he made about Weinstein's sexual conduct at the 2013 Oscar nominations, saying chose to speak out after a co-star had been harassed by the producer.

NY detectives already investigated Weinstein once, in 2015, when an Italian model said the studio executive grabbed her breasts and groped her. Detectives set up a sting where they recorded a conversation between the woman and Weinstein while he tried to persuade her to come into his hotel room. The paper quoted what it called people who spoke on condition of anonymity about the confidential communication.

Disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.

Representatives for Twitter declined to comment Thursday.

David Boies, a lawyer who represented Harvey Weinstein when his contract was up for renewal in 2015, said in an interview that the board and the company were made aware at the time of three or four confidential settlements with women. McGowan on Tuesday tweeted "now I am allowed to say rapist". Representatives for Affleck haven't responded to messages regarding that allegation.

In a video captured by TMZ, Weinstein speaks to the paparazzi as he leaves his daughter's house in L.A. and gets into a vehicle on Wednesday afternoon. "A second chance, I hope". "Next time you get the urge to masturbate, just ask yourself, 'Am I in front of an employee or a colleague?' And if the answer is yes, don't - just don't".

He concludes with an obscenity-laced remark.

"These actions point to a pattern of behavior that merits only the clearest and most unequivocal condemnation", festival president Pierre Lescure and general delegate Thierry Fremaux wrote in a statement.

Since 1990, Weinstein and his wife have personally donated more than $1.4 million to various Democratic candidates or groups, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. "Our thoughts go out the victims, to those who have had the courage to testify and to all the others".

Bannon, whose website has hammered Democrats for accepting Weinstein's political donations, himself profited from a relationship with the movie mogul, in an ill-fated joint venture more than a decade ago.

Weinstein and his brother Bob, co-founders of Miramax Films, burst onto the indie scene with "Sex, Lies and Videotape" in 1989 and turned relatively low-budget films like "Shakespeare in Love" and "Pulp Fiction" into huge box-office hits.
