As Harvey Weinstein flies to Europe (in a private jet, of course), there’s the possibility that he will join fellow Jew and convicted pedophile Roman Polanski where he can’t be extradicted to the U.S.
Three women have stepped forward to claim that he raped them. He may not wish to return to the States to get the “Bill Cosby treatment” by the courts.
Weinstein and his pal (((Anthony Weiner))) have something in common besides an unhealthy sexual appetite. Their wives have left them.
The lag among Hollyweird lefties in condemning the ugly monster exposes the hypocritical rats as the insincere suck ups they are.
Harvey Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman, has announced that she is leaving the movie mogul after a string of women claimed that he had sexually harassed or assaulted them.
‘My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband,’ she told People.
‘Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.’
At the same time as Chapman made the announcement, Weinstein made a departure of his own – to Europe, by private jet.
There he will undergo therapy for sex addiction and behavioral issues, TMZ reported.
Weinstein will submit himself to a live-in facility, in which he hopes he will be able to clean up his act and return to the US.
According to TMZ’s source, the hotheaded producer is surprisingly calm about the chaos that has beset him this week.
‘He has his moments where there are bursts, but for the most part he’s pretty calm,’ the insider said.
Chapman, 41, met Weinstein, 65, in 2003 and they married four years later, going on to have two children, India Pearl, seven, and Dashiell Max Robert, four.
She is also the co-founder of high-end women’s fashion line Marchesa – and before the announcement of her split from Weinstein, sources said that she was struggling to save the brand from being tarnished by her husband’s allegations.
But leaving him might present other problems for the beleaguered British designer.
A source told People that she is terrified that the line, which is loved by many of the women who have starred in her husband’s films, will founder without his help.
That’s because he – as one of the heaviest hitters in Hollywood – has access to the A-list stars that can keep the brand in the public eye.
A TV fashion source said: ‘Harvey is the one with all the friends.
It’s going to be a tough time for her and Marchesa’.
I wonder what attracted beautiful Georgia to squat, ugly Harvey. I guess it was his sparkling personality and his high moral character.
A New York fashion publicist who did not want to be named told the Hollywood reporter: ‘No star is ever going to want to wear the brand again.’
Weinstein is good friends with Vogue editor Anna Wintour and the two have co-hosted fashion and Democratic political fundraising events.
Chapman and Weinstein are regular guests at Wintour’s annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute galas.
Chapman’s departure will likely come as a shock to Weinstein, who had boasted last week that his wife was ‘standing by me 100 per cent’.
‘Michelle and I have been disgusted by the recent reports about Harvey Weinstein,’ Obama said in a statement.
‘Any man who demeans and degrades women in such fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status.’
‘We should celebrate the courage of women who have come forward to tell these painful stories,’ the former president continued.
‘And we all need to build a culture – including by empowering our girls and teaching our boys decency and respect – so we can make such behavior less prevalent in the future.’
He did not say whether he would return the money raised for his campaign.
Hillary Clinton also spoke out on Tuesday, saying she was ‘shocked and appalled’ about the stories that had emerged about Weinstein.
