That secret audio by the model sealed his fate.

Bone chilling stuff.
"In the audio, Battilana can be heard confronting Weinstein about him touching her breast, to which he apologises.
"Why yesterday did you touch my breast?" she asks.
Weinstein replies: "Oh, please. I'm sorry. Just come on in. I'm used to that."
Again, when Battilana protests and explains that she feels uncomfortable, Weinstein appears to threaten her career, saying: "I will never do another thing to you. Five minutes. Don't ruin your friendship with me for five minutes.""

, the titan of Hollywood turned convicted rapist, has been sentenced to 23 years in prison today in New York.






The fallen mogul was handed down his punishment by Judge James Burke at the New York supreme court having been convicted of two counts of sexual assault. The judge imposed 20 years for a first-degree criminal sex act for forcing oral sex on a production assistant Miriam Haley in 2006.

He also imposed a three-year sentence for third-degree rape of a woman whom the Guardian is not naming because her wishes over identification are not clear.

The two sentences will run consecutively, meaning that Weinstein, 67, will have to complete the terms of the criminal sex act before serving the rape sentence.

Bye bye Harvey.

Harvey Weinstein tests positive for coronavirus while in jail: Report

Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has reportedly been moved to solitary confinement after contracting coronavirus, reports local newspaper Niagra Gazette on Sunday. Weinstein is currently serving his 23-year prison sentence at the Wende Correctional Facility in western New York for committing a criminal sex act in the first degree and rape in the third degree.

EW has learned that two inmates at Wende tested positive for COVID-19. The Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) worked with the Department of Health to identify any potentially exposed individuals in order to provide notifications and to stop the spread of the virus.

Weinstein is believed to be one of two inmates to have tested positive.

The prison official in charge of the security cameras also caught the virus, and thus was unable to explain why all the security camera footage was deleted on the night of Weinstein's death.

What was it this time? Overwhelmed a guard, took his gun and shot himself 5 times in the head?

A new civil lawsuit alleges Harvey Weinstein raped a 17-year-old in the 1990s

Four women identified as Jane Does filed a lawsuit against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein Thursday, alleging he sexually assaulted them. The allegations include the story of one woman who says Weinstein raped her in 1994 when she was about 17.

The lawsuit also names as defendants Weinstein's brother, Robert Weinstein, their company Miramax and Disney, which owned Miramax for a time. The suit alleges Robert Weinstein and other executives and employees turned a blind-eye to the alleged abuses and some were complicit in facilitating some encounters.

Harvey Weinstein, 68, is currently serving a 23-year prison sentence for his conviction in New York for charges of criminal sexual act and rape. Through his attorney, he denied the latest allegations.

"Mr. Weinstein categorically denies the allegations made anonymously against him years, if not decades, later. He absolutely denies the allegations that he had inappropriate sexual contact with someone underage, and will vigorously defend himself against these bold allegations," Weinstein's civil attorney, Imran Ansari, said in a statement to CNN on Friday afternoon.

The payments, which need to be approved by two courts, are the result of a lawsuit brought against the ex-movie mogul - currently serving 23 years in prison - and his former film studio The Weinstein Company.
