Like Older Brother?
Bob Weinstein has also been accused of sexually harassing TV executive Amanda Segel. Although he vehemently denies doing so, Segel claims that Bob made repeated romantic requests to join him for private dinners and parties.
According to Variety, Bob stopped after Amanda said that she would take legal actions.
In an interview with Variety, Amanda revealed:
“After ‘no,’ anybody who has asked you out should just move on. Bob kept referring to me that he wanted to have a friendship. He didn’t want a friendship. He wanted more than that. My hope is that ‘no’ is enough from now on.”
On the other hand, Weinstein’s lawyer reported the statement to be false and misleading. He further said:
“And we have the emails to prove it. But even if you believe what she says, it contains not a hint of any inappropriate touching or even any request for such touching. There is no way in the world that Bob Weinstein is guilty of sexual harassment, and even if you believed what this person asserts, there is no way it would amount to that.”
Bob Weinstein’s Response To His Brother’s Case
“My brother Harvey is obviously a very sick man. I’ve urged him to seek immediate professional help because he is in dire need of it.” Bob told.
He added: “Harvey has proven himself to be a world-class liar, and now rather than seeking help, he is looking to blame others. His assertion is categorically untrue from A to Z.”
In 2017, Harvey resigned from the company after a showdown with other board members and his brother. In an interview with TMZ, Harvey said that he believes his brother leaked the information in order to remove him from the firm.
