While several actresses spoke out reacting against Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment allegations, the Hollywood mogul has found a supporter in actress Lindsay Lohan. The actress took to Instagram defending the ousted producer but deleted the message a little later.
Lohan came in defense of the troubled producer in a message on Instagram on Tuesday night. "I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now", she said in a video taken from her home in Dubai, "I don't think it's right what's going on", she said.
Lohan continued "He's never harmed me or did anything to me, we've done several movies together. I think everyone needs to stop - I think it's wrong. So stand up," she said before she deleted the post from her page.
According to the Variety magazine, she even said that Weinstein's wife Georgina Chapman has to take a stand in support of her husband.
In a statement to People Magazine, Chapman said she had to leave her husband for the well being of their children as she also apologized for his wrongdoings.
"My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time," she said.
Chapman who is also a designer by profession is leaving Weinstein as more women continued to admit that they were harassed by her husband at some point or the other. Initially, she stood by him despite the decades of sexual harassment and assault claims made by women.
After the New York Times report on Tuesday, Weinstein, who had denied of allegations of non-consensual sex, told that Chapman was standing by him.
"She stands 100 percent behind me. Georgina and I have talked about this at length", Weinstein told the New York Post, adding that Chapman was helping him become "a better human" and to "apologize to people for my bad behavior, to say I'm sorry, and to absolutely mean it", he said
Weinstein, 65, and Chapman, 41, were married in 2007 and have two children together - India Pearl, 7, and Dashiell Max Robert, 4.
Weinstein was terminated from his own company on Sunday. He is reportedly on his way to Europe for treatment as multiple incidents of harassment on several actresses, including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow have come to light.
