Harvey Weinstein Lawyers Up



Harvey Weinstein is preparing for an intense legal battle with both The New York Times and The New Yorker. The film and television mogul has reportedly hired a team of high-powered attorneys in preparation for upcoming investigative stories about his personal life.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The New York Times has been calling many current and former employees of the executive’s production company, The Weinstein Co., from the past two decades to ask about his personal behavior. While nothing is known about what the newspaper is planning to publish, Weinstein is reportedly getting ahead of it by hiring a team of attorneys to defend him against possible allegations from women willing to go on the record. Meanwhile, former MSNBC host Ronan Farrow is reportedly doing a piece for The New Yorker involving similar claims against Weinstein.

Variety reports that the indie film producer has retained litigator David Boies as well as attorneys Lisa Bloom and Charles Harder so that he may be prepared to refute any claims against his character. Additionally, he's allegedly trying to retain Lanny Davis, a former special counsel to former president Bill Clinton, and various public relations firms.

Harvey likes to have sex with women other than his wife. My guess is the report is going to be about him being in a position of authority over several of those women.

Interesting Tricia. The legal lengths he's going to clearly point to a man with an abundance of sketchy history to be worried about.

He’s repulsive and that’s on a good day ��
Rudest and one of most unrefined men I ever met.I hope money doesn’t buy the verdict again...

Tricia - are you willing to spill any secrets on our friend HW?!?!

David Howes said...

Oh, Tricia. I feel for you.

BTW: Wasn't there a Blind/Reveal about him offering "Oscar" roles to actresses who were willing to watch him shower?

Or, did I miss something?

(Wouldn't be the first time!)

There has got to be more than one disappointed actress who did the deed with him but came out empty handed. she now gives no f***'s and will spill. *grab's popcorn*

Riven said...

shakey said...

Riven, Miramax did a lot of indie films.

This story right here is ALL JUICE, BABY! Please keep us apprised, Ent!

Riven said...

ah ok thanks Shakey! I hear indie and think poor people, I hear Weinstein and think rich pervert.

Maybe they're beginning to investigate the casting couch in Hollywood. Of course that means a male victim complained.

FS said...

Original, authentic Enty talked about dirty Harvey's shenanigans for years before he sold this site. Somewhere, he is smiling and having a very large plate of bacon. Cheers, OG Enty!

Joel Theriot said...

The statement he put out is fantabulous! See kids, this is a teachable moment for Harvey.

Not much more than what is about to be Front Page news thankfully/hopefully.... Met him several times with mutual acquaintances/ events and he was verbally abusive and totally dismissive to almost everyone around him ... and when he hits on you and you tell him to F off- he’s definitely doesn’t like it๐Ÿ˜‰ like I did in Cannes ..
Did the same to my sister inNYC once and she(much less-assertive) was cornered and harassed by him and then he dragged her around and tried to force her to chat it up with an old rich dude/friend -she was just there as a party guest (it was a Film Screening after party-and she was with her BF smh). They fled needless to say.

I laughed when Harvey's lawyer had the balls to say they're suing. The NYT is probably saying "bring it on." Not only is truth a complete defense, but the NYT then gets to depose all those women who signed settlement & NDA's. The women can't talk to the press but they can give testimony, especially if they're subpoenaed.

I cannot WAIT for the punches to fly! This is SO over due!! Also investigate the other Weinstein brother, he's as much of a loser. Best gossip headline in a long time. I hope many dominoes will fall. Then let's root out the pedos. It all has to start falling down from some where. How can Georgina have sex with that beet root of a man? She has her own money?! I don't get it. NO amount of money would tempt me. Have some respect for yourself ladies.

Guesser said...

Wasn't there an even worse blind about the brother? This is popcorn worthy for sure,with a clear villain.No sympathy for his wife,another Camille Cosby,she can't not know this,they love the status.

Sd Auntie said...

Sorry you had to go through that. What a jerk!

Ldy Bozz said...

Isn't his actions is what Hollywood calls " Casting Couch"?
About time that shh... stops. He's soo fake. Not sorry he's only sorry for getting exposed. Pig.
