Hollywood Mogul Weinstein 'Taking Time Off' - After Huge Allegations Arise

Hollywood Mogul Weinstein 'Taking Time Off' - After Huge Allegations Ariseby

Harvey Weinstein is arguably one of the most important people in Hollywood. He helped to lead Miramax into the spotlight and has acted as a producer on films as successful as Pulp Fiction and Scream – and he’s also, of course, an important force as part of the Weinstein Company studio. However, revelations made in the New York Times in recent days appear to make allegations that could prove shocking if verified in the long term.

According to the outlet, it is being alleged that Weinstein has been responsible for the harassment of several women in the film industry spanning decades – alleging a huge abuse of his power that has resulted in the studio mogul taking temporary leave to ‘deal with (the issue) head on’. Among those alleging sexual harassment at the hands of Mr Weinstein include actresses and colleagues alike – among them, household names such as Rose McGowan and Ashley Judd. “It’s beyond time to have the conversation publicly,” states Judd of women ‘talking amongst themselves’ about Weinstein’s actions in the past.

Sources also state that Weinstein has previously settled accusations made by women several times in the past – though official sources wish not to reveal further details on the ground of anonymity. Among those making allegations supposedly include assistants, models and actresses – and while Weinstein himself is denying much of the allegations through legal representation, he has apologized for the fact that ‘the way (he) behaved with colleagues in the past’ having caused ‘a lot of pain’. “Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go,” the mogul adds.

Weinstein’s lawyers have outright stated that the boss denies ‘many of the accusations’ as ‘patently false’. Those arguing for Weinstein’s guilt state that there is a ‘common narrative’ in accusations made by different women – and it seems that the recent outing of more allegations has encouraged the studio executive to take time away from the workplace. It is reported that Weinstein will be consulting therapy to be able to process the allegations – and it is not entirely clear what will happens regarding said claims once the movie boss returns. However, what is clear that a lot of women feel the same way – and while Weinstein’s lawyers may advise that much of the accusations being made are fictitious, they could end up having to defend him further in the near future.
