The Wall Street Journal: Harvey Weinstein accused of rape as new harassment allegations emerge
More allegations of sexual assault and misconduct against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein surfaced Tuesday, including some involving rape.
Weinstein was accused of rape by three women and sexual harassment by 10 others in an article published by the New Yorker magazine on Tuesday morning. Soon after the article appeared online, the New York Times reported that several more actresses — including Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie — said the mogul had propositioned or harassed them at early points in their careers.

A spokeswoman for Weinstein didn’t respond to a request for comment for this article. In a statement to the Times last week, Weinstein apologized for how he had “behaved with colleagues in the past.”
Since allegations of his sexual misconduct were reported by the Times last week, Weinstein has been fired as co-chairman of Weinstein Co., the studio whose executives are now taking his name off the credits of coming film and television projects.
