Since rising to fame as one of the central figures of the indie film renaissance in the early 1990s, Miramax and the Weinstein Company co-founder Harvey Weinstein has enjoyed a spot at the very top of the Hollywood food chain.
Weinstein is such a powerful figure that tales of him wielding his clout to secure everything from favorable reviews to Academy Awards are the stuff of legend within the movie industry.
Unfortunately, as is the case with so many powerful men in far too many fields, there’s a dark side to Weinstein’s ascendance that’s come to light slowly thanks to a number of brave women and their willingness to share their stories.
Weinstein’s been accused of sexual assault and harassment several times over the years, but he’s survived each scandal due largely to the tremendous amount of media influence he’s accrued over the years.
In October of 2015, actress Ashley Judd claimed she was harassed by an unnamed producer who was widely assumed to be Weinstein.
“I was sexually harassed by one of our industry’s most famous, admired-slash-reviled bosses,” Judd revealed in an interview with Variety.
“I was making Kiss the Girls at the time, and here I was, a declared feminist … It took years before I could evaluate that incident and realize that there was something incredibly wrong and illegal about it.”
As the account followed closely on the heels of a different Weinstein sexual assault scandal, many believed that Judd was hinting that she had been assaulted by the then-Miramax chief.
Now, the allegations have been confirmed in a scathing New York Times exposé that Weinstein reportedly tried to prevent from being published.
In addition to detailing the abuse against Judd, the Times has published allegations from several women who worked for Weinstein and claim they were groped, harassed, or otherwise abused during their time in his employ.
An investigation by the Times revealed several undisclosed allegations against Weinstein across a thirty-year period.
The mogul has reportedly reached out-of-court settlements with his accusers on eight separate occasions.
The Times piece includes accusations from a temporary Miramax employee who says she was forced to massage Weinstein while he was naked, an episode that left her “crying and very distraught.”
The Times also excerpted a letter written by Weinstein colleague Lauren O’Connor to several execs at TWC that addresses the issue of Weinstein’s ongoing misconduct:
“There is a toxic environment for women at this company,” O’Connor wrote.
“I am a 28 year old woman trying to make a living and a career. Harvey Weinstein is a 64 year old, world famous man and this is his company. The balance of power is me: 0, Harvey Weinstein: 10.”
In a statement issued to the Times this afternoon, Weinstein did not deny the allegations against him, saying:
“I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it. Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go.”
Sources say Weinstein will be taking an indefinite hiatus from his company.
We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Blac Chyna’s beefing up her personal security and got her former side piece banned from her upcoming club appearance … because his recent actions are scaring her. Sources close to Chyna tell TMZ … Ferrari won’t be allowed in at the Medusa…
Blac Chyna is using the full power of the law to protect her boobs, butt and other very private parts.
On Monday, the reality star was granted a temporary restraining order against Rob Kardashian, days after her ex-fiance went on an Instagram rant that including the public sharing of very NSFW photos.
There’s no longer a legal grey area.
For the time being, it is illegal for Kardashian to post naked photos of his former flame.
Similarly, Chyna is now sending the same potential message to Ferrari.
The previously-unheard-of rapper has seemingly been sleeping with Chyna for a few weeks.
He’s the man kissing her in the video below, which Chyna sent as a taunt to Kardashian on July Fourth and which ignited Rob’s wrath and spurned on his explicit social media diatribe.
As part of his viral attack against Chyna, Rob slammed his ex as a promiscuous drug user, but he also claimed to include text messages he received from Ferrari.
Some were asking Rob for money, others were implying that Ferrari wanted to actually work with Rob in some capacity to profit off their shared banging of Blac Chyna.
The day after Kardashian slammed Chyna and got this whole mess underway, Ferrari actually shared a couple lewd photos of Chyna himself.
They featured the artist and the mother of two in bed, likely following some sex, and clearly serving a as a form of trash talk.
Did Chyna approve of these pictures? Or did Ferrari send them behind her back and possibly break California’s revenge porn law himself as well?
We don’t have the answers to those questions at the moment.
However, lawyer Lisa Bloom has sent Ferrari a letter (obtained by TMZ) that warns him NOT to sell or post any more nude Blac Chyna images.
Otherwise, he may face a lawsuit.
Or a prison sentence.
“Posting online or distributing photos of Ms. White’s intimate body parts is a crime punishable by fines and jail time,” Bloom writes in the document.
Insiders say that Ferrari removed himself from the Blac Chyna narrative late last week.
He returned a bunch of jewelry he had purchased for his fling and no longer has any interest in making love to her, considering all the drama that has ensued ever since they knocked boots.
Chyna, meanwhile, held a brief conference on Monday that said she was grateful a judge granted her the aforementioned restraining order against Rob.
She is allegedly frightened of her second baby daddy and even fearful that Kardashian may use his gun to harm himself or others.
But this doesn’t mean she wishes to punish him where it hurts most; i.e. when it comes to custody of his daughter, Dream.
“I would never try to take Dream from her dad,” Chyna said on Good Morning America. “Hopefully, me and Rob can learn to have common ground and be the best co-parents as we can be.”
That’s a pretty impressive and mature stance for Chyna to take when you think about all Rob said about her last week.
For the sake of their precious loved one, we really hope Chyna sticks to it and we really hope Kardashian grows the heck up.
Rob Kardashian’s brutal rants against Blac Chyna showed her side piece the light — and now Ferrari is kicking her to the curb too, and saving himself more than 100 grand in the process. Sources connected to the rapper, tell us Ferrari…
