Attorney Lisa Bloom Drops Harvey Weinstein as Scandal Escalates

Harvey Weinstein

Co-chairman Harvey Weinstein was taking an indefinite leave from the Weinstein Co, the film production company said on Friday, adding it will conduct an internal investigation into the New York Times' report of sexual harassment allegations against one of the most powerful men in Hollywood.

"I have resigned as an advisor to Harvey Weinstein", Ms. Bloom tweeted Saturday. "My understanding is that Weinstein and his board are moving toward an agreement".

"I hope Harvey gets the help he seeks", Rock writes, "but I do not buy any of it at this point as I believe he is only going down this path because he can not cover his own sh- up any longer". "Though I'm trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go", Weinstein said in a statement to the New York Times after the allegations came to light.

Bloom had told the Times in an interview Friday that she had chose to work with Weinstein because it posed an "opportunity" to help someone who admitted he had "behaved badly".

Stephanopoulos asked Bloom on Friday if Weinstein did in fact sexually harass women. "How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?".

Additionally, Bloom said her mother does entirely different forms of law. "We believe it is important to learn the full truth regarding the article's very serious accusations, in the interests of the Company, its shareholders and its employees", it said. People are intimidated by him. "I'll stand up to him, but if I'm a 23-year-old in his workplace, of course, they're intimidated". Weinstein then tried to kiss Silvan, the news anchor claimed, but she rebuffed his advance and told him she had a boyfriend.

Knight will return to court for a pretrial hearing in his murder case on November 14. The Times points out this private investigator is no longer working on his case.

Bloom told Stephanopoulos that she was not suggesting that Judd was lying.

"It's gross, yeah", Bloom said. One year ago, I began organizing a $5 million foundation to give scholarships to women directors at USC.

"This is not about attacking any of the women, I'm glad they came forward", she said.

"When did you meet YOUR Harvey Weinstein?".

Weinstein, who said he was taking a leave of absence in response to the allegations, told the New York Post Thursday that he meant to sue the Times because the paper gave him inadequate time to respond.

"I figured at the very least, someone would see that something happened to me, and they would feel a little less alone if something similar happened to them".
