DISGRACED Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein is reportedly fleeing the US via private plane to check into a rehab facility where he can find ‘peace’.
After being fired from his own company and losing his wife of 10 years, Harvey Weinstein is reportedly getting out of the US.
New reports indicate the Hollywood mogul is heading far away to enter rehab.
According to TMZ, the producer is boarding a private jet on Tuesday night (US time) for a rehab centre somewhere in Europe. He will reportedly enter a live-in facility that will help treat him and teach him to deal with both sex and his other behavioural issues. Despite the cavalcade of negative press surrounding him after numerous women came forward to claim sexual harassment and abuse from him throughout his many years in show business, he allegedly still hopes rehab will allow him to make a comeback at a later date.
“He needs his peace. He’s been hounded all week. He lost his company and his wife. What more can you lose?” a source close to Weinstein told New York Daily News.
“He’s got to go find peace.”
The news comes just hours after Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman, announced that she is leaving her husband amid the sexual misconduct allegations that were exposed by different reports from both the New York Times and The New Yorker earlier this week.
“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions,” Chapman said in a statement to People magazine.
“I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.”
It’s unclear at this time specifically where Weinstein is reportedly headed.
