Harvey Weinstein's Brother Confronted Him About 'Misbehavior' Years Before Rape Scandal


Judd, who accused the producer of sexual harassment, joined the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters on Monday ahead of the launch of their book, which hits shelves on Tuesday.

She Mentioned, a brand new book from the New York Cases reporters who broke the Weinstein scandal, reportedly unearths that Bloom tried to discredit McGowan by offering to set articles in media retail outlets that could perhaps perhaps picture the Grindhouse actress as unstable. "I didn't know what the repercussions would be legally and personally".

"It was time", she added.

"But it was hair-raising for her, because Harvey Weinstein had been such an important influence". But it was just the tip of the iceberg.

"They start out as impressive, bold women, but the more one presses for evidence, the weaknesses and lies are revealed", wrote Bloom, who has represented women who accused comedian Bill Cosby, former Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly and US President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct.

Weinstein, who has been charged with rape and predatory sexual assault and will stand trial in January, has denied Chiu's allegation.

A previously unnamed former Miramax Assistant, Rowena Chiu comes forward in the book to detail how she allegedly received a settlement after Weinstein sexually assaulted her in a hotel room. "You are a conniving, vicious abuse of the word woman".

As for how they earned the women's trust, Kantor said: "We said to victims, 'Look, we can't change what happened to you in the past, but if we work together we may be able to take this in some sort of constructive direction'".

Judd was aware that the women, whose allegations dated back to the early 1990s, wanted company in coming forward.

Bloom later told Kantor and Twohey she "deeply regretted" representing Weinstein and called the endeavor a "colossal mistake".

Paltrow won an Oscar for best actress in 1999 after working with Weinstein on "Shakespeare in Love".

"I was able to say to Gwyneth, "I always anxious about you"... and Gwyneth was able to say to me, 'I was cheering for you, I knew that you were going to be the one to tell the story, ' and I'm so glad I did", Judd said.

Paltrow hid in her own bathroom and telephoned the journalists, saying: "What do I do?"

The new book includes emails from Boies' time representing Weinstein, in which the two men chat about potential movie roles for the lawyer's daughter, the Times reports.

She said Paltrow had, from an early stage, been "determined" to help the investigation, "even when he [Weinstein] turned up early to a party at her house, and she was forced to hide in the bathroom".

Bob Weinstein told the authors that he gave up trying to influence his brother´s conduct, saying: "I got worn out".
