Attorney Lisa Bloom no longer working with Harvey Weinstein

Weinstein has been the subject of increasing controversy since the release of an explosive New York Times article that detailed accusations of sexual harassment from numerous women.

And she called on others in the entertainment world to turn their backs on the 65-year-old Weinstein and his companies until he is fired or quits. There, he met a local cable news anchor, Lauren Sivan, who later rode with him, the restaurant's owner, and others to a Cuban-themed club the restaurant owner was an investor in. "I was naive, new to the industry, and didn't know how to deal with his aggressive advances - work invitations with a friend late-night at The Toronto Film Festival, and later an invitation to meet with him about a role in The Peninsula Hotel, where staff were present and then all of a sudden disappeared like clockwork, leaving me alone with this extremely powerful and intimidating Hollywood legend". As they left, he leaned in to kiss Sivan. The next day Weinstein called Sivan to ask her out, telling her he "had a great time last night". She was also trapped between Weinstein and the exit. Since more than 10 minutes had passed, Sivan's friend says she went to look for them, but was initially stopped by a security guard. She said she had gotten near "the end zone" once, only to bump up against the ultimate silencer: "fear".

At that point, Sivan claims that Weinstein exposed himself and began masturbating. She also tweeted an explanation. Weinstein has accused the TImes of "reckless reporting" but attorney Lisa Bloom, who has been advising Weinstein, confirmed that his behavior was sexual harassment. "Let's just say they have an "inconsistent" relationship".

Brzezinski, who signed a July book deal with a Weinstein company, declared she would not honor her contract unless the Oscar-winning movie mogul is gone.

Some congressional Democrats have started to give charities thousands of dollars in donations from Weinstein - after a New York Times report detailed he settled sexual harassment lawsuits with at least eight women. On Friday, the Weinstein Company said its co-founder would be placed on an indefinite leave of absence and said it would hire a prominent law firm to investigate the charges.
