'Suicidal' Harvey Weinstein tries to flee daughter's home

'Suicidal' Harvey Weinstein tries to flee daughter's home

"When the call originally came in it was reported there was a male "feeling suicidal and depressed".

The incident, deemed a "family dispute", was later confirmed to Variety by an LAPD spokesperson.

Weinstein had been staying at his 22-year-old daughter's home where the two were holding an intense argument.




According to TMZ Weinstein was heard yelling at his daughter "You're making it worse" before flagging down a vehicle and begging for a lift. It eventually culminated with Harvey telling his daughter that she was "making it worse".

According to TMZ, Harvey Weinstein's daughter dialed the police Wednesday morning to report that her father had become suicidal. While the entertainment heavyweight probably thought they were avoiding trouble by firing founder Harvey Weinstein in the wake of sexual assault claims against him, they now find themselves in a new dilemma. "This situation is of course very hard for Harvey, but he is not suicidal - his heart is breaking for his kids". In the past, he's worked on acclaimed films like Shakespeare in Love, Gangs of New York, Pulp Fiction, Good Will Hunting, Chicago, The Aviator, The King's Speech, and Django Unchained, among many others. However, once the actress arrived she was directed to his hotel room, where he appeared wearing a bathrobe and asking for a massage. Judd told the Times as she recalled the incident.

Weinstein was forced out of his own company just a few days later, on Sunday. Several A-listers who have worked with Weinstein in the past, including Meryl Streep and George Clooney, have publicly denounced Weinstein in the ensuing fall-out.
