    Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has tested positive for the coronavirus in prison — and most likely contracted the disease at Rikers Island, an official briefed on the matter told The Post on Sunday. Weinstein, 68, is being held in isolation at the Wende Correctional Facility near Buffalo, where he tested positive on Saturday, the official said. The state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision wouldn’t confirm or deny Weinstein’s condition, citing federal health-care privacy law, but said that two inmates at Wende had the coronavirus.

    Newly unsealed court documents put Harvey Weinstein’s Rolodex on full display. The fallen movie mogul - who is now a convicted rapist facing up to 29 years in jail and will be sentenced Wednesday - once tried to save his career by emailing his famous peers, including billionaires, powerful agents and Hollywood titans. In emails, reviewed by Variety on Tuesday afternoon at the New York City criminal courthouse, where roughly 1,000 pages of documents were unsealed, Weinstein wrote to the likes of Michael Bloomberg, Quentin Tarantino, Netflix’s Ted Sarandos, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and Apple’s Tim Cook and Eddy Cue.

    Harvey Weinstein suggested that Jennifer Aniston “should be killed” upon learning that the National Enquirer was planning to report he sexually assaulted her, court papers revealed Tuesday. On Oct. 31, 2017, amid the barrage of #MeToo allegations against the disgraced movie mogul, Weinstein’s spokeswoman forwarded him an email from the Enquirer, the records show. “Not sure if you saw this one. Jennifer Aniston,” wrote Sallie Hofmeister, a senior executive at the powerhouse Sitrick public relations company. In its email, the Enquirer said that “Jennifer confided to a friend that during the production of the 2005 movie ‘Derailed’ Weinstein sexually assaulted...

    Convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein injured himself in Rikers Island jail when he fell while trying to walk on his own, according to a Page Six report. Weinstein spokesperson Juda Engelmayer told the New York Post Post gossip section that Weinstein fell on his head Saturday and may have suffered a concussion as a result. Weinstein, 67, had a heart procedure last Wednesday during which doctors inserted a stent, Engelmayer told CNN. He was moved Thursday to the infirmary unit at Rikers Island, New York's main jail complex, Engelmayer said. He's expected to be sentenced March 11 in New York State...

    Weinstein is said to be under the watchful eye of medics and is being regularly checked on by guards amid concerns he could harm himself. He said to enjoy regular inmate privileges including one hour of recreation, library access and three meals a day. . . . He is set to be sentenced on Wednesday. New York prosecutors said in a court filing on Friday he should get a sentence that reflects not only his conviction for sexually assaulting two women, but a 'lifetime of abuse towards others'.

    Quick question: Why is Chris Matthews out of a job and Joy Reid still employed at NBC News? We’ll explore that fascinating double-standard at play over at the Peacock Network in a moment. First of all, everyone at MSNBC knew Matthews was a problem. I mean, I was only on MSNBC a few times in early 2017 and I witnessed one of his tirades directed at his long-suffering staff. I was sitting in the green room at the NBC News location on Nebraska Ave. in North West DC. I was due for an appearance on a mid-day program and “Mr....

    A member of Harvey Weinstein’s jury spoke out about being shown naked photos of the former producer during his rape trial. The jurors were shown naked photos of Weinstein as evidence during the trial, according to an interview published Tuesday by “Inside Edition.” “I tried to block it out,” said the woman, who was only identified as “juror no. 2.” “It was presented to us, so it wasn’t something that we could have blocked out, but it’s hard not to make a face.” As previously reported, actress Jessica Mann testified about the first time she saw Weinstein naked, claiming he...

    You might not have heard -- because Trump is still president, so MSNBC and CNN were required to give hair-on-fire coverage of some mundane action he’s taken this week -- but on Monday, Harvey Weinstein was convicted of rape and a criminal sexual act. I have some random thoughts on the case and the whole #MeToo movement. Apologies in advance that this has nothing to do with Donald Trump, Dictator. 1) Every time I hear about Weinstein’s predations, I wonder how many waitresses, real estate agents and housewives in Los Angeles might be celebrated actresses today, except that when Weinstein...

    WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton raked-in more cash from convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein than any other politician despite brushing off his donations by claiming he gave money to “every” Democrat. Federal Election Commission filings show the disgraced movie mogul bundled $1.4 million for Clinton during her presidential bid in 2016 and handed her another $73,390 dating back to her 1999 New York Senate seat run. On Tuesday, the former first lady defended her long relationship with the sex creep, quickly deflecting scrutiny from reporters by noting that Weinstein also raised funds for Barack Obama, John Kerry and Al Gore during their...

    Harvey Weinstein was rushed to hospital by ambulance on Monday, shortly after being found guilty of raping and sexual assaulting two women. The disgraced Hollywood producer, 67, was said to have been redirected to Bellevue Hospital Center after suffering chest pains.

Judge James Burke had initially ordered Weinstein to be taken to Rikers Island prison immediately, until his sentencing on March 11. Weinstein was convicted by a New York jury of sexually assaulting former production assistant Mimi Haleyi in his apartment in 2006 and raping...

    Six women out of the more than dozens of women who have accused Harvey Weinstein of vile sexual behavior have testified over the last two weeks at his rape trial in New York City. Their testimonies were allowed in court despite most of them not being the subject of the actual charges against the disgraced movie mogul, allowing the prosecution to establish a pattern of lewd and violent sexual behavior by Weinstein. Weinstein, 67, is charged with raping Jessica Mann in March 2013 and forcibly performing oral sex on Mimi Haleyi in 2006.

    Michael Bloomberg, as New York City mayor, honored Harvey Weinstein at a 2013 ceremony where the now-disgraced movie producer cracked sex jokes and praised the current 2020 presidential candidate for helping his movie production company after it fell on tough times, according to video that surfaced Friday. “The reason Bob and I became fond of independent foreign films is because when we were 14-year-old boys and our hormones were raging, we saw an ad for the Mayfair movie theater…and it said ‘the 400 blows,’ and we thought it was something else,” Weinstein said at the June 10, 2013 event, which...
