Weinstein on 'indefinite leave' as company probes sexual harassment allegations

07 October 2017

Oscar-winning movie producer Harvey Weinstein on Thursday threatened to sue the New York Times after it reported that he had been the target of sexual harassment complaints.

The film producer did dispute a report made by the New York Times, however, claiming that he had harassed female employees over almost three decades.

Harvey Weinstein responded to allegations about his treatment of women in Hollywood to The New York Times. Sivan, who was shocked by the entire incident, said Weinstein had called her at her office the next day to tell her "he had a great time last night".

"I'm not accusing Ashley Judd of lying at all, I'm glad she's come forward and spoken out her truth", Bloom added.

Weinstein said: "This is a vendetta, and the next time I see [Times executive editor] Dean Baquet, it will be across a courtroom". "He would always exhort me to climb under the audio board and pleasure him while he worked", one user wrote.

In his apology statement provided to the Times on Thursday, Weinstein said he would take a "leave of absence" from The Weinstein Company in the wake of the allegations.

In the interview on Friday, Ms. Bloom said that she took issue with characterizations of Mr. Weinstein's actions as harassment.

Lisa Bloom, one of Weinstein's lawyers who specializes in sexual harassment cases, separately said in a statement sent to AFP that her 65-year-old client "denies numerous accusations as patently false".

Weinstein, who is certainly described as the most powerful man in Hollywood, can do a better work surviving the wave of allegations and stories which we are sure to hear more about in coming weeks.

Trade publication Variety said the board of directors of the Weinstein Company would meet by yesterday evening to decide whether he would helm the company.
