Disgraced Producer Harvey Weinstein Out from BAFTA Due to Sexual Assault Allegations

More women go public with Weinstein abuse allegations

None had yet been found, but police say they encourage anyone with information on Weinstein to report it.

New York City police detectives are taking a fresh look into sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein. London's Metropolitan police force said it had received an allegation of sexual assault from the Merseyside force in northwest England.

The New York Times earlier reported that McGowan was among the numerous women sexually harassed by Weinstein, who paid McGowan a financial settlement in 1997.

After the episode, Maerov said, Harvey Weinstein refused to let the board review his personnel file directly. "Mr. Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual".

The French actress, who won the Palme d'Or at Cannes for Blue Is The Warmest Colour, said the film mogul stared at her "as if I was a piece of meat". "And when they are famous and powerful like Harvey then it gets talked about and so it's really important that those women have been courageous enough to come out", Fonda said. A third woman, actress Asia Argento, told the magazine that Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on her in 1997 at a hotel in France. However, some assaults described in the New Yorker piece took place in NY, where first-degree sexual assault has no time limit.

"Guys, I'm not doing OK, but I'm trying", Weinstein told reporters on Wednesday as he entered an SUV parked outside his daughter's Los Angeles home. He also told the photographers he needs to "get help" and "we all make mistakes".

On Tuesday, Weinstein was accused of rape by three women - claims Weinstein "unequivocally denies" - and his British wife Georgina Chapman announced she was leaving him.

"Why yesterday you touch my breast?"

"I was appalled. It was something that was just intolerable in every way", she said. I'm used to that.

Seth MacFarlane has also come out to explain the story behind a joke he made at Weinstein's expense during the announcement of Academy Award nominations. But the Manhattan District Attorney determined there wasn't enough evidence to prosecute, and the statute of limitations on the allegations of forcible touching, a misdemeanor, have expired.

"I, like they, were very disturbed by the contents of the tape".

But prosecutor Cyrus Vance said there was insufficient proof to pursue charges. "But at the end of the day we operate in a courtroom of law, not the court of public opinion". The statute of limitations has since expired.

Pierre Lescure, the festival president, and general delegate Thierry Fremaux, wrote in a joint statement: "These actions point to a pattern of behavior that merits only the clearest and most unequivocal condemnation".

Hachette and the book publishing arm of the Weinstein Company had a co-publishing arrangement that included works by Dick Van Dyke, Larry King and Tim Russert.
