The Harvey Weinstein effect”

He seems impatient to get another piece out ASAP, ' the insider told Page Six.

Zelda Perkins, an ex-employee of Weinstein's former company Miramax, broke a non-disclosure agreement this week to tell the Financial Times that she had been sexually assualted by the Shakespeare in Love producer.

The New York attorney general has opened an investigation into sexual harassment and possible violations of civil rights laws at the Weinstein Company also. Since then, a large number of other women have spoken out about the film mogul's sexual abuse - including Hollywood stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie. The 63-year-old producer, who has been accused of sexual harassment and rape by a number of women, filed the lawsuit against the company in DE, claiming the company has denied his attorney's request for the documents.

A representative for Harvey Weinstein also had no comment.

'They made many, many, many millions of dollars while Harvey Weinstein was behaving in the most egregious and reprehensible acts imaginable'.

Lawyers for the co-founder of The Weinstein Co., filed the action late this week in Delaware.

The New York Times also reported that Weinstein paid a financial settlement of $100,000 to McGowan in 1997 over an incident in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

The 49-year-old actress joined Jane Fonda, Julianna Margulies, Gloria Steinem, Judith Light, and Marisa Tomei at the Women's Media Center 2017 Women's Media Awards held at Capitale on Thursday (October 26) in New York City.
