Weinstein Hires Criminal Defense Lawyer Amid New Allegations
The pressure is building. More than 20 women, now including Cara Delevingne and Heather Graham, have publicly stated that Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed them, and the mogul has added a criminal defense attorney to his team after multiple allegations of rape. Meanwhile, Ronan Farrow, who wrote one of the Weinstein exposés, said the producer threatened him with a lawsuit. Yesterday the British film academy suspended Weinstein’s membership, and the U.S. Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will meet this weekend to discuss “any actions warranted” against him.
