Bob Weinstein States He "Unknowingly" Paid Off Harvey's Accusers

Another victim, the Filipina-Italian model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, said she was pressured into signing a settlement that was extensive and dense despite her very limited English.

Bob Weinstein confirmed to the New Yorker that he made the payment, but denied being aware of what it was for. K2 employs a number of individuals who previously worked at the Manhattan district attorney's office, which ended up deciding not to charge Weinstein, and the firm passed unflattering allegations about Gutierrez on to prosecutors.

In a new interview, Bob Weinstein reveals that he gave his brother Harvey $600,000 in payout money to help hide sexual harassment allegations from Harvey's wife, Georgina Chapman.

She said she felt as if she needed to sign it, because the media had been tough on her amid her allegations.

"She was shaking and she was crying", Perkins said of hearing her assistant's story, adding that Weinstein denied her allegations when she confronted him.

In a letter to Tillerson on Friday, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Sen. Tillerson wrote about the need for the United States to continue supporting the community.

"I was forced by the fact that newspapers completely bashed me, by the fact that I was alone, by the fact that I was twenty-two years old", Gutierrez told the New Yorker. They ultimately settled, with Bob paying them the 250,000 pounds, to split evenly, in return for them signing non-disclosure agreements.

"Regarding that payment, I only know what Harvey told me, and basically what he said was he was fooling around with two women and they were asking for money", Bob told the publication.

Perkins's agreement also reportedly included measures meant to prevent other women from being abused by Weinstein. The agreement also required Disney to be notified of any sexual harassment settlements entered into by Weinstein. "I thought a hundred thousand dollars was a lot of money at the time, because I was a kid".

The money was supposed to be split between Harvey's former assistant Zelda Perkins and another female employee in the United Kingdom alleging sexual harassment and assault. The disgraced Oscar-winner is reportedly now in Arizona, where he had been seeking treatment at a rehabilitation facility.

Harvey has claimed all of the sexual encounters were consensual, and is still undergoing treatment for his issues in Arizona.
