Harvey Weinstein expelled from Television Academy for life

Share

Much like the list of "Shitty Media Men" that was circulated a few weeks back, alleged instances of rape are highlighted, as well as instances in which a police report was filed.

Weinstein has been kicked out of several Hollywood organizations, the latest which was the Television Academy, whose leadership voted Monday to ban the producer for life.

It was also hired to 'obtain additional content of a book which now being written and includes harmful negative information on and about the Client, ' who is identified as Weinstein in multiple documents.

In the fall of 2016, Harvey Weinstein set out to suppress allegations that he had sexually harassed or assaulted numerous women.

Two Black Cube private eyes met with United States actress Rose McGowan - before she publicly accused Weinstein of raping her - to obtain information.

She also allegedly attempted to broker a meeting with Ronan Farrow, the New Yorker journalist who reported 13 claims of abuse made against Weinstein last month, and also wrote the 6 November investigation.

A new report from the New Yorker has revealed that Harvey Weinstein employed a number of private detectives, lawyers, and a variety of firms to investigate any potential sexual assault allegations that could be used against him.

Farrow's latest report details how Weinstein, through his lawyer Boies' firm, contracted two intelligence companies Kroll and Black Cube, the latter of which promotes itself as "a select group of veterans from the Israeli elite intelligence units".

Responding to the new claims, Weinstein's spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister said that "it is a fiction to suggest that any individuals were targeted or suppressed at any time". The move follows similar actions by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. In this guise she approached McGowan several times, apparently seeking to establish a friendship. Additionally, he is under investigation by police in four jurisdictions - New York City, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and London.

"Everyone lied to me all the time". Boies denies that there was any conflict of interest, though he does confirm working with and paying two investigative firms on Weinstein's behalf.

A new article in the New Yorker offers evidence that former Hollywoodmega-mogul Harvey Weinstein hired private detectives and spy firms to compile discrediting dossiers on those he feared would expose his pattern of sexual abuse to the public. "Although he vigorously denies using physical force, Mr. Weinstein has himself recognized that his contact with women was indefensible and incredibly hurtful", he told The New Yorker. Farrow said an investigative firm gathered background information about him, while another firm gathered background information on Adam Moss, the editor-in-chief of NY magazine, which was in the process of preparing a report on Weinstein.

In a Good Morning America interview Tuesday, Farrow told GMA anchors George Stephanopoulos, Michael Strahan and Robin Roberts that there is a "seismic shift" happening in Hollywood with more victims coming forward. "Just wanted to tell you how courageous I think you are".
