We apol­o­gise for this pic­ture, but it shows the true mea­sure of the man

Scottish Daily Mail - - News - From Tom Leonard in New York

WAV­ING his mid­dle fin­gers in a crude ges­ture, Har­vey We­in­stein leaves his lawyer’s of­fice to check into a sex ad­dic­tion clinic.

The film pro­ducer, 65, was un­der­stood to be a pa­tient at a £30,000-amonth re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion cen­tre in Ari­zona last night.

Hours ear­lier, out­side the Los An­ge­les home of his 22-year-old daugh­ter Remy, the Hollywood mogul – fac­ing ac­cu­sa­tions from at least 33 women – launched into an ex­ple­tive-rid­den tirade when ap­proached by pho­tog­ra­phers. He said: ‘I’ve al­ways been loyal to you guys, not like those f***ing p **** s who treat you like s***. I’ve been the good guy.

‘Guys, I’m not do­ing OK, but I’m try­ing. I gotta get help. I’m hang­ing in, I’m try­ing my best.

‘You know, we all make mis­takes. Sec­ond chance, I hope.’

He had a fu­ri­ous row with his daugh­ter be­fore flee­ing the house and try­ing to flag down a stranger’s car. His daugh­ter called the po­lice, fear­ing her fa­ther was sui­ci­dal, but of­fi­cers de­ter­mined he was not.

On Wed­nes­day night We­in­stein boarded a pri­vate jet for Ari­zona, where he is be­lieved to have checked into The Mead­ows – a clinic where golfer Tiger Woods and model Kate Moss have re­ceived treat­ment.

Sources say he had orig­i­nally planned to fly to Europe for treat­ment, but was warned it would look like he was flee­ing the US.

We­in­stein’s Bri­tish wife, fash­ion de­signer Ge­orgina Chap­man, and two youngest chil­dren have not been seen for a week.

He said that he was ‘pro­foundly dev­as­tated’ after she told him she was di­vorc­ing him.
