Harvey Weinstein's brother Bob Weinstein accused of sexual harassment by TV showrunner

Following the ousting of Harvey Weinstein from The Weinstein Co. over harassment allegations, his brother Bob is now being accused of sexual harassment.

"'No" should be enough", Segel told the magazine. Bob kept referring to me that he wanted to have a friendship.

Bob's lawyer, Bert Fields, insists there is "no way in the world" his client has done anything wrong. He wanted more than that.

In response to the allegations, a representative for Mr Weinstein has denied the producer engaged in any inappropriate behaviour.

Segel said Weinstein repeatedly made unwanted romantic overtures toward her, including asking her out to dinner. He denies any claims that he behaved inappropriately at or after the dinner.

The claims from Segel come after two weeks of accusations against Bob's older brother Harvey Weinstein have been making headlines, with a multitude of women stepping forward to share their stories of alleged sexual harassment, assault and even rape.

But actress Rose McGowan, who has made claims against Harvey Weinstein, has previously warned people not to let his younger brother "off the hook".


Meanwhile, a representative for the Weinstein Co. denied that Glasser was contacted by Segel's lawyer.

After the initial allegations against Harvey Weinstein were reported, Bob Weinstein said he was "mortified and disgusted by my brother's actions".

"Bob you called me at home & called me a looser [sic] w/ no career threatening me b/c I refused to do a Maxim cover for you", the actress wrote on Twitter, referring to when she was promoting her film Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which Bob's company had produced.

An agreement was reportedly made so that Segel would continue working on the show but was never to be in the same room as Weinstein or have telephone calls with him - an agreement which is said to have been honoured by the producer.

I go through harassment training every session, like every other person in the assembly. No way. No (expletive) way was I aware that that was the type of predator that he was.

"I truly hope that the properties revert to their rightful owners as you/Weinstein board were fully aware & abusive to actors/filmmakers". My discomfort is for what they have gone through, not for how it reflects on the institution I represent.
