Harvey Weinstein slapped in face in restaurant in Arizona

Harvey Weinstein slapped in face in restaurant in Arizona

On Tuesday night, a drunk man slapped Harvey Weinstein in the face at an Arizona restaurant.

Steve verbally attacks Weinstein, too, calling him a "piece of st" and tells him to "get the fk out of here".

The New York Times reported Thursday that, over decades, Weinstein reached eight settlements with women who accused him of unwanted physical contact and sexual assault. Weinstein declined, and the men left the restaurant.

In the video, Weinstein can be seen stumbling after being slapped while the man with him attempts to blocked the camera. TMZ said the restaurant's manager disputes this claim.

The man reportedly told TMZ that Weinstein declined to take the picture and was being belligerent.

As both parties got up to leave around 9 p.m., Steve, who confessed he had had "quite a bit to drink", asked his friend to shoot a video of the ensuing confrontation.

Following these cases and reports, Weinstein was terminated from his organization, restricted from the Producer's Guild of America and removed from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Weinstein went to Scottsdale in October and took part in a therapy programme there shortly after sexual misconduct allegations against him began to emerge.

Harvey Weinstein is apparently somewhere in Arizona in rehab for sex addiction (collective sigh on three) and went out for dinner in Scottsdale with his "sober coach".

Original reports stated that Weinstein had been punched in the face.

Contrary to rumors that Weinstein was in Los Angeles during the Golden Globes last week, Weinstein's reps confirmed he was NOT in Hollywood, and was in Arizona the whole time.
