Harvey Weinstein’s daughter called police to her Los Angeles home Wednesday after she claimed that her father was “suicidal and depressed,” following reports from nearly 30 women accusing him of sexual misconduct.
Police arrived to find that no suicidal comments had been made, but there had been a “family dispute,” the New York Daily News reported. Weinstein reportedly got into a heated argument with his 22-year-old daughter Remy. The movie mogul could be heard yelling “you’re making it worse” to his daughter, according to TMZ.
“The person said the subject was feeling suicidal and depressed, but when officers got there and conducted their investigation, it was revealed no suicidal remarks were made. It was only a family dispute,” a police source told the Daily News. (RELATED: These Are All The Women Who Have Accused Harvey Weinstein Of Abuse–So Far)
Just a few days after The New York Times published a piece with numerous allegations against Harvey Weinstein for sexual harassment, several other accusers have come out against the Hollywood executive with sexual assault claims.
A report published by The New Yorker Tuesday also included accounts from several actresses and a former employee, who spoke anonymously. Italian actress Asia Argento and former aspiring actress Lucia Evans opened up about their encounters with the film executive.
“I know he has crushed a lot of people before,” Argento told The New Yorker. “That’s why this story–in my case, it’s 20 years old, some of them are older–has never come out.”
Argento was only 21 years old when she went to a hotel on the French Riviera in 1997 where she thought she would be meeting Weinstein at a party, but arrived to an empty room where she found Weinstein in a bathrobe.
“He asks me to give a massage. I was like, ‘Look man, I am no fucking fool,'” Argento recalls. “But, looking back, I am a fucking fool. And I am still trying to come to grips with what happened.”
After reluctantly giving Weinstein a massage, he allegedly lifted up her skirt, forced her legs open and performed oral sex on her. Argento claims she resisted repeatedly until she decided to fake enjoyment to get him to stop.
“It wouldn’t stop. It was a nightmare,” she said.
“I was not willing,” Argento added. “I said, ‘No, no, no.’ … It’s twisted. A big fat man wanting to eat you. It’s a scary fairy tale.”
