In response of allegations made against Weinstein in a New Yorker piece this week, a spokespman for Harvey, Sallie Hofmeister said:
“any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr Weinstein”.
“Mr Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.”
She added: “He will not be available for further comments, as he is taking the time to focus on his family, on getting counselling and rebuilding his life.”
This is an ongoing case, and there will be more updates regarding the situation.
