Though dozens of women have told stories of sexual predation by the Hollywood mogul in the past week, beginning with reports in the New York Times and the New Yorker that blew the story open, Weinstein has never been criminally charged. "It's more if anyone's been a victim or feels like they've been a victim, come forward". "He alternated between that and asking me to give him a naked massage in the bed". He also promised to help advance their careers in return for sexual favours. Last Friday, the four who remained - Bob Weinstein, Ben Ammar, Koenigsberg and Maerov - announced that Harvey Weinstein would take a leave of absence while an outside lawyer investigated the complaints.

With the allegations pouring in, Weinstein was sacked by his own company, and his wife, Georgina Chapman, reportedly plans to divorce him.
