Harvey Weinstein was reportedly attacked by a drunken diner at a restaurant after he refused a photograph. And he later declined to press charges.
According to TMZ, Weinstein was dining with his sober coach at the restaurant attached to the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort when the man in the video, named Steve, approached Weinstein, shook his hand, and requested, but was denied a selfie with the former Miramax head.
Harvey Weinstein went to Scottsdale, Ariz. after allegations of sexual misconduct began to emerge. We say "supposed" because the aggressor, a man who only identified himself as "Steve", described the attack as having punched Weinstein in the face twice, who then "stumbled backward and nearly fell", when in fact the video tells a slightly different story.
Romelu Lukaku 'angry and upset by voodoo claims made by Everton owner'
As if Romelu Lukaku didn't have enough questions about his hot and cold form at Manchester United over the past few months, now Everton's majority shareholder, Farhad Moshiri , has made some weird claims about the Belgian's departure from Goodison Park.
He also slapped him in the face with the back of his hand twice. He said he asked Weinstein to take a photo and he was belligerent about it. The restaurant's manager has a different side, though. The guy, calling himself Steve, claims he went to Weinstein's table to tell him how much he loved the guy's movies. Steve and his dinner companion chose to leave at the same time.
The man claims he walked up to Harvey and said, "You're such a piece of s-t for what you did to these women", before punching him in the face twice.
Weinstein refused to call the police after Steve's friend suggested it to him and they all just left the restaurant as if nothing had happened.
