The New York Times obtained court documents that were previously sealed in Weinstein’s criminal case. Last month, the disgraced film producer was convicted of two criminal charges. He is facing a minimum of five years and maximum of 29 years in prison.
The unsealed documents include a ton of evidence used by prosecutors including emails sent by Weinstein to associates. After the first bombshell report accusing Weinstein of sexual abuse he fired off emails to the rich and powerful.
Weinstein reached out to Jeff Bezos and Michael Bloomberg asking for help to repair his image. A spokesman for Bloomberg, said, “Mike didn’t reply to the email.” A bunch of emails between Weinstein and his team were unsealed which show them scrambling in the middle of the scandal. In the emails, Weinstein agrees to enter rehab for sex addiction.
Harvey’s brother, Bob Weinstein, told the disgraced producer he was a sexual predator and told him he belonged in hell. Bob wrote to Harvey that he didn’t believe he, “had consensual sex with all those poor victimized women.”
He wrote, “U deserve a lifetime achievement award for the sheer savagery and immorality and inhumanness, for the acts u have perpetrated.”
At one point, The National Enquirer reached out to Weinstein’s team about a story they planned on running including allegations he groped Jennifer Aniston.
His publicist sent him the information and Weinstein responded, “Jen Aniston should be killed.” The story never ended up running in the tabloid because it was false.
Aniston’s rep, Stephen Huvane, said: “He never got close enough to her to touch her.” He added, “She has never been alone with him. We have no idea about the email since it wasn’t sent to us, nor do we have any comment to make on it.”
Other unsealed documents reveal investigations spoke to over 100 people to gather testimony on Weinstein’s alleged crimes.
