NY police reopens 2004 Weinstein assault case

NY police reopens 2004 Weinstein assault case

In a statement Thursday, guild President Beau Willimon and Executive Director Lowell Peterson condemned Harvey Weinstein's "deplorable" behavior and said that "sexual harassment and assault have always been hallmarks of the entertainment industry".

The statement acknowledged that accusers often speak out at and face great professional and emotional risk.

"Harvey and Remy had a yelling argument, and Harvey left her house upset", a source told People. She said that when she rang the bell of Weinstein's Westport, Connecticut, home she was shocked to see him in nothing but the undergarments when he answered the door.

'I thought he was going to fire me, ' she told the paper. "It speaks to the status quo in this business that I was aware that standing up for myself and saying no to things, while it did allow me to feel uncompromised in myself, undoubtedly harmed my career and was never something I felt supported by anyone other than my family", Beckinsale said. "I've been the good guy", said the former co-chairman of the Weinstein Co. Beckinsale ended her post by saying Weinstein is "an emblem of a system that is sick and that we have work to do".

Members of the Weinstein Company board have insisted they were unaware of payments he had made to women who complained, calling the allegations "an utter surprise".

Merseyside police said the allegation was made Wednesday and concerns "an alleged sexual assault in the London area in the 1980s".

British police do not identify suspects who have not been charged.

The New York Police Department told Fox News Thursday that they have opened an investigation into sexual assault accusations against Harvey Weinstein stemming from an alleged 2004 incident.

The New York Times reports the actress was asked to meet with Weinstein at his suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for a work meeting. She says she realized "he couldn't remember if he had assaulted me or not".

After listing the nominees for supporting actress, MacFarlane said: "Congratulations". The company said it will "be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future". "It's serial sexual harassment not a Monkee's tattoo!"

Hachette Book Group, one of the country's top publishers, also announced Thursday that it has "terminated" Weinstein Books.

Under New York law, making someone engage in oral sex by physical force or the threat of it is a first-degree criminal sexual act.

But a new angle to allegations emerged Tuesday when three women, including an Italian film star, claimed that Weinstein raped them.

Cohen's letter to the board did not describe the contents of Harvey Weinstein's file, nor did it address whether Weinstein had entered into private settlements with women who complained of misconduct. He has also worked directly for Harvey Weinstein, as was the case during the contract negotiations.

She said the reports were "deeply concerning" as senior politicians called for Weinstein to be stripped of his honorary CBE. Unsurprisingly, Bob and Glasser declined to comment on the update.

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.
