The life and career of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein are at stake after a shocking explosive report of his sexual misconduct surfaced on The New York Times. In the wake of the news, a lot of actors and actresses came forward and shared their horrific stories with Weinstein leading to his wife Georgina Chapman also announcing separation. So now the producer seems to be ready for some treatment. According to TMZ , the 65-year-old apparently flew from Los Angeles to Arizona on Wednesday evening to get treatment at an inpatient program.
Chapman had earlier said that she was going to stand by her man and this had led the social media to boycott her label Marchesa. It seems that realization struck upon her finally and she earlier said in a statement that "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 added. Weinstein and Chapman have two children together and Chapman reiterated that her topmost priority was her children so she would focus on taking care of them.
A host of A-listers in Hollywood like Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and many more had spoken up about how Weinstein made sexual advances at them and how they could not speak up at that time as they were young and afraid that their career would be damaged as Weinstein was a very powerful man in the industry. In fact, Brad Pitt had confronted Weinstein when he behaved badly with Paltrow as he was her boyfriend at that time and had threatened him if he further made any advances. There were an array of other actors like George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep and others who openly ridiculed Weinstein.
Initially, Weinstein's lawyer in a statement called the allegations"false and defamatory" while the producer himself released a lengthy statement where he had apologized for his behavior in the past with various people in the industry which had caused them pain. But his apology did not make any sense because the entire industry came down harshly upon him.
