Harvey Weinstein to take leave of absence amid sexual harassment allegations

Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Co., said he plans to take a leave of absence after The New York Times published a story detailing multiple sexual harassment accusations against him.

The report details various incidents dating nearly three decades back when the media mogul allegedly made inappropriate sexual advances. Actress Ashley Judd claimed she was sexually harassed by Weinstein about 20 years ago, while another woman alleged that Weinstein made sexual advances in 2014, one day after she started working at the company as a temporary employee. Weinstein has settled at least eight sexual harassment claims, according to the Oct. 5 report.

In a statement to the newspaper, Weinstein said that he has sought help from therapists and intends to take a leave of absence.
