Disgraced Producer Harvey Weinstein Out from BAFTA Due to Sexual Assault Allegations

NYPD to Re-Examine Harvey Weinstein Sexual Assault Probe, Sources Say

"After declining alcohol and announcing that I had school in the morning I left, uneasy but unscathed", Beckinsale said in her post.

"With all these big sexual harassment cases going public", Bee says, "men are getting concerned about how they can avoid being accused". About a week later she was told by a Weinstein assistant she didn't get the job because she was an actor. He then asked whether she felt it was a conflict to be his nanny while pursuing an acting career and smirked when he asked whether she would "flirt" with his friends to get ahead.

The organisation have "informed" the disgraced producer - who was sacked from his own Weinstein Company earlier this week in the wake of a New York Times expose, which claimed he had sexually harassed a number of women over a 30-year period and paid off at least eight to keep their allegations quiet - of their decision and admitted they felt his alleged actions were "completely unacceptable and incompatible" with their own values.

And in the waning hours of last week, as he struggled to retain control of the business in the wake of allegations first reported by The New York Times, Harvey Weinstein fired off an email to his brother and other board members asserting that they knew about the payoffs, according to people who spoke on the condition of anonymity about the confidential communication.

"Based on information referenced in published news reports the NYPD is conducting a review to determine if there are any additional complaints relating to the Harvey Weinstein matter", J. Peter Donald, of the NYPD's DCPI told the outlet.

In response to the lengthy allegations made against Weinstein in the New Yorker and New York Times pieces, a spokesperson for Weinstein said, "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

'It's really inspiring to see that in a young woman.' the Avengers star said.

Weinstein says he is taking a "leave of absence" from The Weinstein Company and is working with a therapist.

One of the most shocking elements of the Harvey Weinstein story that is continuously unfolding this week is that his alleged abuses had been staring everyone in the face for years. Mr. Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual.

She explained that the producer, with whom she has worked on several movies, has never harmed her. "You know, what? We all make mistakes".

Pierre Lescure, the festival president, and general delegate Thierry Fremaux, wrote in a joint statement: "These actions point to a pattern of behavior that merits only the clearest and most unequivocal condemnation".

It appears The Weinstein Company was well aware of Harvey Weinstein's predatory ways as the independent film studio was alerted of a number of sexual harassment-related cash settlements during the disgraced producer's contract negotiations.

"Our thoughts go out to the victims, to those who have had the courage to testify and to all the others", Fremaux and Lescure said.
