Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has resigned from the board of directors at The Weinstein Company ahead of his official firing.
The board members voted to oust the producer following the publication of a New York Times expose detailing his decades of alleged sexual abuse and harassment, and his termination would have been made official on Tuesday, according to TMZ.com sources.
But Weinstein pre-empted the big announcement by stepping down from the board.
The money men at Colony Capital, who are in talks to buy TWC and change the company’s name in the wake of the sex scandal, plan to bring in new partners and reduce Harvey’s brother Bob Weinstein, who is also now facing allegations of sexual harassment from Amanda Segel, an executive producer on The Mist, to a less official role.
She claims Bob made multiple attempts to invite her out on private dinners since the summer of 2016 until her lawyer informed The Weinstein Company’s executives, including COO David Glasser, that she would leave the show if he didn’t stop personally contacting her.
A representative for Bob has issued a response stating: “Bob Weinstein had dinner with Ms. Segel in LA in June 2016. He denies any claims that he behaved inappropriately at or after the dinner. It is most unfortunate that any such claim has been made.”
