Harvey Weinstein Allegedly Wrote Jennifer Aniston “Should Be Killed” While Being Accused Of Sexually Assaulting Her
Harvey Weinstein’s trial has officially wrapped, but more details are coming out about his alleged conduct with A-list stars. While the disgraced movie exec was convicted of a criminal sexual act in the first degree and rape in the third degree last month, he’s now being accused of allegedly making comments about actress Jennifer Aniston in court documents that have recently been unsealed.
According to Variety Tuesday (March 10), court documents allege Harvey Weinstein made this statement via email when a journalist asked about allegations that he inappropriately touched the “Friends” star:
“Jen Aniston should be killed.”
The alleged email, which dates back to Oct. 31, 2017, was said to be in response to an email that reads:
“The National Enquirer intends to publish a story reporting Jennifer Aniston was sexually assaulted by Harvey Weinstein.”
Jennifer Aniston’s team has since shut down reports that Harvey Weinstein groped her. Stephen Huvane said,
“The National Enquirer claims are false. Jennifer has not been harassed or assaulted by Harvey.”
Meanwhile, Harvey Weinstein is scheduled to be sentenced today (March 11) and could get up to 29 years behind bars.
His legal team has asked that he not be given more than five years and suggested that he would die behind bars if he received more than that. They wrote a letter to Justice James Burke of the New York Supreme Court that reads, according to Page Six,
“The grave reality is that Mr. Weinstein may not even outlive that term. Mr. Weinstein was constantly maligned by the media, having long since been convicted in the court of public opinion. His fall from grace has been historic, perhaps unmatched in the age of social media.”
They claimed that the victims allegedly
“continued consensual relationships with Mr. Weinstein after the alleged assaults and contacted him for jobs, tickets, and professional advice.”
The lawyers continued,
“The trial did not fairly portray who he is as a person. His life story, his accomplishments, and struggles are simply remarkable and should not be disregarded in total because of a jury’s verdict.”
He’s currently awaiting his sentence at Riker’s Island in New York City.
