Harvey Weinstein: Film producer says ‘I have caused a lot of pain’ –
Film producer Harvey Weinstein has issued an apology as a newspaper reported a number of sexual harassment allegations against him. “I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologise for it,” said the movie mogul’s statement. But he later disputed a New York Times report that claimed he harassed female employees over nearly three decades. The newspaper reported he had reached at least eight settlements with women. Mr Weinstein, a married father-of-five, said he planned to take a leave of absence from his company and had hired therapists to deal with his issue. “My journey now will be to learn about myself and conquer my demons,” the 65-year-old’s statement on Thursday said.
