Hollywood 2017: Harveygate–Saga Continues–Bob Weinstein Paid Off for his Bra Settlements

A New Yorker article further details the secret settlements that allegedly allowed Harvey Weinstein to cover up sexual assault and harassment allegations dating back decades.

Ronan Farrow reports that Bob Weinstein, who has repeatedly said he was unaware of his brother’s alleged sexual misconduct, personally paid £250,000 — equivalent to about $600,000 today — to settle two claims against his brother in the 1990s during their time running Miramax.

The money was supposed to be split between Harvey’s former assistant Zelda Perkins and another female employee in the U.K. alleging sexual harassment and assault.

Bob Weinstein confirmed the personal payout during the New Yorker interview, but insisted that his brother misled him about what the money was being used for. Because it came from his account, the money could be hidden from Disney, Miramax, and Harvey’s wife.
