Since I can’t stand to look at Harvey Weinstein’s face one more time, here’s a sleeping puppy.
This has been a helluva week for Harvey Weinstein. The public found out he’s a disgusting piece of scum, he got fired from his own company, his wife left him, woman after woman has called him out and the press won’t leave him alone. It’s no wonder that he’s been wound a little tight. TMZ reports that yesterday in L.A., Harvey terrorized his daughter Remy Weinstein, who he was staying with, by getting into a screaming match with her that was so bad the cops had to show up. And then he flew off to rehab.
According to law enforcement, Weinstein was at his 22-year-old daughter Remy‘s place when their argument spilled out onto the street. We’re told Harvey yelled to her, “You’re making it worse” … and then flagged down a random vehicle driving past, begging for a ride. We’re told Remy convinced her father to go back in the house, and shortly thereafter — around 10:30 AM — LAPD and her alarm company showed up.
TMZ says that Remy had called the cops and told them Harvey was “suicidal and depressed” but that when they showed up Harvey was gone (hiding under the bed, perhaps?) and they were told it was just a family argument and no actual suicide was threatened.
Later that same day, TMZ caught Harvey leaving Remy’s house (he WAS playing peek a boo!) on his way to rehab and he agreed to be filmed. When asked if he was doing ok he said no, reiterated his delusional hope of getting a “second chance” (dude has had more Chances than a Texas phone book) and said “I gotta get help, guys“. He also took a pop shot at, presumably, all those traitorous celebrities who’ve spoken out against him. According to TMZ:
As Weinstein bolted for the airport, he told photogs he was “not like those fucking pricks who treat you like shit.”
Sounds like he’s really looking deep within himself and is ready to atone for his sins…..
As for rehab, TMZ says he took off on a private jet headed for Wickenburg, Arizona, home to a well known rehab center called Meadows. They weren’t able to confirm that he’s at that particular center but they say he is definitely going to be getting treatment in some inpatient program. As previously speculated, he was going to be going to Switzerland but his team decided it was best if he stayed in the U.S. so sadly, no pajama party with Polanski. TMZ adds that if he is indeed going to Meadows, he’s gonna have a pretty sweet time.
The Meadows has a program called Gentle Path … a 45-day inpatient rehab for those with sex addiction issues. The program includes equine therapy, expressive arts therapy, meditation, yoga and intensive counseling.
Those poor, poor horses. I hope they all have good lawyers.
