Disgraced film mogul, Harvey Weinstein strikes $25m deal with his accusers

Disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein has struck a “tentative” deal with dozens of his alleged victims, according to a report.

The New York Times says the proposed settlement of $25m (£18.9m) would end nearly every lawsuit filed by those who say they are victims of sexual assault by the former Hollywood producer.

And Weinstein would not have to apologise, or pay from his own bank account as insurers representing the Weinstein Company would cover the settlement’s cost, the report says.

More than 30 actresses and Weinstein employees, who have sued him for accusations ranging from sexual misconduct to rape, have agreed to the deal, according to half a dozen lawyers.

A court would then have to approve the settlement before it is paid out.

Weinstein is also facing a criminal trial in which he faces five charges, all of which he denies, including two of rape, and insists that all of his sexual encounters were consensual.

The charges relate to two women, although more than 70 others have made similar claims against him.
