  • London Police Opens Investigation Into Harvey Weinstein Accusations

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.

Merseyside Police says the allegation was made Wednesday and concerns "an alleged sexual assault in the London area in the 1980s". Last Friday, the four who remained - Bob Weinstein, Ben Ammar, Koenigsberg and Maerov - announced that Harvey Weinstein would take a leave of absence while an outside lawyer investigated the complaints.

NY police said Thursday they have reopened a investigation into allegations of a 2004 sexual assault by disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

"I have some business advice", she said.

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.

A law enforcement official says detectives also plan to contact women who spoke about their encounters with Weinstein in a New Yorker article this week.

"I told him I was never going to trade sexual favors to advance my career and I was under the impression that this was a career meeting", she said.

Representatives for Twitter declined to comment Thursday.

"I don't know what else I could have done", Maerov said.

Then, addressing Weinstein saying the culture of the '60s and '70s of which he grew up in led to his toxic behavior, Bee exclaimed, "Oh give me a break, white Cosby!"

She ended her monologue with this: "Listen up, creeps of Hollywood, we know who you are".

He concludes with an obscenity-laced remark.

Weinstein attended the world-famous festival many times and several movies he produced have been selected in the competition.

We kinda assumed this was the case...

The Harvey Weinstein sex abuse scandal has entangled a former president, a former presidential candidate and now a former presidential adviser.

Bannon, whose website has hammered Democrats for accepting Weinstein's political donations, himself profited from a relationship with the movie mogul, in an ill-fated joint venture more than a decade ago. Weinstein was sacked Sunday by The Weinstein Co., a studio he co-founded with his brother.
